Galaxy Nexus benchmarks show device to be near Galaxy S II

This week and throughout the next we'll be continuing to explore the many facets of the Galaxy Nexus both inside and out, this newest post showing off the power of the device running this vanilla version of Ice Cream Sandwich with some benchmark tests. You'll see CF-Bench, Linpack, Quadrant Advanced, and SunSpider (web browser test). Each of the tests run in their own app from the market while SunSpider runs in the native WebKit web browser that comes with the device. Will this newest Samsung device outdo the Galaxy S II, or will it prove to be less of a powerhouse than Samsung's hottest selling space-themed handset?

Galaxy Nexus uses fortified glass, not Corning Gorilla Glass

Though Corning's Gorilla Glass has all but dominated the review circuit when it comes to must-have features on mobile devices over the past year, it appears that Samsung and Google have opted for a different solution for their next hero device, the Galaxy Nexus. This device will play host to Google's next-generation mobile OS Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is set to have a host of powerful features that make it a force to be reckoned with. Corning has assured the public that lo, and alas, the Galaxy Nexus does not have Gorilla Glass sitting on its front.

ASUS Transformer Prime sets massive benchmark pre-release

Over the past few weeks we've been seeing glimpses of the next big tablet release from ASUS, one that's all but guaranteed to carry the NVIDIA Kal-El quad-core processor, and today according to AnTuTu benchmarking system, we see that not only does this pair exist, it's a powerhouse! What you're seeing here in this post is a stack of benchmarks that've been recorded by AnTuTu (an app which tests synthetically several innards of an Android device including CPU, graphics, and more) and right up on top you'll see nothing less than the ASUS Transformer Prime, complete with a quad-core processor running at 1.4GHz! Below that you'll see another couple of hero devices from Samsung, (including the Galaxy S II from AT&T) but take note: they've only got two cores, half the power!

Galaxy Nexus appears in Samsung site search results

It appears that there must have been nothing the team at Samsung.com could have done to avoid an early outing of the search results for "Galaxy Nexus" as the listing has appeared for all to see just hours before its official unveiling in Hong Kong. Anyone who might have a try can right this minute search for either "Galaxy Nexus" or "Nexus Prime" over at Samsung and the "Best Match" result will be the "Galaxy Nexus from Verizon." Oh what's that? Verizon, there you are!

Galaxy Note aimed at capturing the female market says Samsung

Galaxy Note aimed at capturing the female market says Samsung

This week it's been said by Samsung UK Sales Director Andrew Glass that the upcoming Galaxy Note device "is really good for the female market." With a gigantic 5.37-inch display and a thin stylus that's able to be carried by the device itself when not in use, we've been thinking that this halfway point between a tablet and a smartphone would be a good shot aimed at basically any set of humans, Glass this week detailed a few ways in which Samsung would be tending to the female market specifically. Does this 1280 x 800 pixel Super AMOLED HD display having 1.4GHz dual-core wielding Note device look like the lady product for you?
