Which? used the Geekbench 2 tests where the Samsung Galaxy S4 crushed most of the competition, with only the HTC One coming close.
- Samsung Galaxy S4 – 3188
- HTC One – 2798
- Sony Xperia Z – 2173
- Google Nexus 4 – 2134
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2 – 1950
- BlackBerry Z10 – 1698
- Apple iPhone 5 16GB – 1664
The online publication also tested talk and web browsing time.
Samsung again was the one that topped the talk time test, with the Sony Xperia Z coming close. In web browsing, the Samsung Galaxy S4 was the runaway winner, with the HTC One, BlackBerry Z10 (STL 100-2) and the Sony Xperia Z all bunched up from second to fourth place.
Apple's iPhone 5, came in last in the speed test and second to last in the battery life tests. It did win the fastest to recharge test. Still, even in this test, it was closely hounded by the Samsung Galaxy S4, which too is just 23 minutes longer to recharge.
Still, if you are an Apple fan, the iPhone 5 was really designed to slug it out with the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X. Taking out the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, that is the job of the iPhone 5S.
