Ever since the Samsung Galaxy Note was unveiled, the industry has struggled to properly categorize the device. “Is it a tablet or is it a phone?” is the question on the minds of everyone who sees this 5.3-inch Android device.
Whatever the Note is, it’s got an impressive 1.4GHz dual-core CPU joined together with a Mali-400MP GPU. Now one thing we do know is Samsung’s Exynos chip is a powerhouse; not too long ago we wrote how the Samsung Galaxy S II was the most powerful device out there, second only to the iPad 2.
That said, a slew of benchmark tests on the Galaxy Note showed how much of a kick-ass device it is. In a test tailored to the CPU, both BenchmarkPi and Linpack clocked speeds nearly 20% higher than the Galaxy S II — yikes.
