Benchmarks Real world tests of GALAXY Note II vs PadFone Infinity

geekbench Processor and memory performance

We don't have AnTuTu scores for the Optimus G, which leaves the Samsung Galaxy Note II as the king of the hill here.
GALAXY Note II | by GSM Arena (Oct, 2012)

passmark Processor performance including multiple cores

The combination of the latest Android and the fast Exynos chipset with a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz makes the Note II a performance beast.

SunSpider 0.9.1 Web browser and javascript performance

The benchmarks on the Galaxy Note II were run in the native browser in Android Jelly Bean - it's blazing fast!

GLBenchmark 2.7 3D graphics performance

GALAXY Note II
4.9 fps
PadFone Infinity
13.4 fps
The Cortex-A9 may not be the newest CPU core design, but four of them at 1.6GHz with 2GB of RAM and a beefed up Mali-400 GPU make for the fastest pocketable hardware at the moment - certainly fast enough to run Android Jelly Bean and whatever comes after it.

GLBenchmark 2.5 3D graphics performance

GALAXY Note II
19.8 fps
PadFone Infinity
