Why we don't care about Galaxy S7 benchmarks

154

There's quite a bit being said about Galaxy S7 benchmarks, not that you need to worry about any of it.

Have you heard the one about the guy who got excited about the benchmark performance of the untested processor in an unconfirmed environment that is headed for an unannounced phone that couldn't possibly be ready for production and official testing just yet? It's a real knee slapper, you'll love it.

It's that time of year, when we start getting that steady trickle of information regarding phones we'll hear about in an official capacity over the next month or two. For obvious reasons, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is high on the list of things people want to hear more about. That leads to a whole lot of unconfirmed reports, blurrycam leaks, and wringing of hands about what it all means. Above all that we have benchmarks, the most useless information we could get about unreleased hardware with brand new processors.

Truth is most smartphone benchmarks are pointless, but early unfinished and unofficial benchmarks are doubly so. Here's a quick look at why.

Honor 5X review

102
Honor 5X

Honor has an affordable and capable budget option here, but the software borders on unacceptable.

The quick take

The Honor 5X is a budget-priced phone that feels aspirational to something worth a bit more than you paid. For $199 you get a better hardware experience than you might expect, with a good screen, capable camera and a fingerprint sensor. Unfortunately, the Honor software story remains mostly unchanged, eroding away any goodwill gained from touching the phone. The software is overbearing, frequently slow, and downright broken in some places, which spoils the whole experience.
