Chinese version of Sony Honami scores high on AnTuTu
Regardless of whether you call Sony's upcoming Android flagship the Sony i1 Honami or the Sony Xperia Z1 (which is the rumored true moniker of the device), the phone is obviously quite a beast. The Chinese variant of the phone was recently sent through the AnTuTu benchmark test and it was obvious this handset had studied for the test.

The results put the Honami, Xperia Z1 or whatever you want to call it, in the company of other beastly handsets with a score of 30,625. In fact, the Sony i1 Honami topped the eagerly awaited LG G2 which scored 29,909 earlier this month.  For the record, the unit was powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU with Android 4.2.2 installed.

We expect to see the Sony i1 Honami see the light of day on September 4th when it is finally unveiled in Berlin. Even without actually being released, the device will already face some tough competition as that is the same day that Samsung will be introducing the Samsung Galaxy Note III, which itself is no stranger to the AnTuTu benchmark test. The last time that the phablet went through the site, the Hong Kong variant tallied a very impressive 33,082 score.

With all of the powerful new Android handsets on the way, fans of the platform are going to have a tough time making a decision about which model to choose when the time comes to purchase a new phone.

30K is an impressive score indeed, but it isn't the highest. This phone will flyyyyy in terms of speed.

Scores vary greatly in these tests even on the same device. My stock Evo 4G LTE usually scores anywhere between 5000 and 7000 on Quadrant. I'm not too familiar with AnTuTu, but I'd imagine it's the same type of situation.

The Z ultra probably has less power constraints since it is basically a tablet with a huge battery. This will have a shorter leash so expect the scores to be lower.

OH the JOY of being a Android platform user... Soooooooooo many beautiful phones to choose from... This is the MAIN reason i made ios my SECOND platform instead.

China and South Korea are sooooooooo lucky to be getting the "BEST" hardware.

I've "narrowed" my next device down to: Honami, One Max, Note 3, G2, and Nexus 5. It's a fantastic problem to have, the next few months should be genuinely fun and exciting (what a lame life I must lead)!

Sad part is that despite bringing waterproofing, dust proofing and the S800 CPU (in high end) to their mid to high end devices they still haven't made much progress in catching up to Samsung and Apple, how much more do they have to do? They are even on their 2nd Smart Watch and yet to haven't truly captured the market.

Hahaha... why you always says something stupid???

This is the first year Sony really doing their best, they launched the Xperia Z to attract attention of
consumers to the Sony brand and even with all its shortcomings Xperia Z quite well in the market.

And do you realize how long it is needed by Samsung to beat Nokia and become no. 1??? it will be world record if Sony can beat samsung and other manufacturers in just 1 year but you must think rational cuz its impossible.

This year entry level to mid range phones from Sony usually has better specs and cheaper than Samsung phones and when Honami, and Honami mini arrives you will be unable to complaining about the viewing angle, camera, updates, or old chipset and before you says something about bezels, until now you couldn’t show to me any dust and
waterproof phones with bezelless body that good enough to compete with Xperia ZL, even waterproof phone from your beloved company (S4 Active) is taller, wider, thicker, and havier than Z.

When you're using antutu benchmark, make sure the device battery is at low temperature to obtain near maximum results and you must not in the middle of multitasking as well.

I own Xperia Z. When I use antutu benchmark while my phone is cold and not using any apps or not doing multitasking, I always got a score of over 20,000

When I use antutu benchmark while my phone is hot and lots of background apps are running, the score is usually 14,000-17,000

Xperia Z ultra's benchmark score is around 34,000 by the way..

Next month is the mongolian barbeque (battle of the phablets). Beautiful phones, good build quality, power house phones, but non of these cannot attract me, unless with a removable battery. Like my HTC One, is so "beautiful" (look and feel), but less attractive to me, because of lack of removable batt. My honest opinion.

Over all score are impressive...and these scores are hugely complemented by cpu...how about graphics, sd and db scores alone? How does this devices compare to others apart from cpu scores?

Forget the benchmarks, what phone is in the article header picture? Dual LED AND Xenon flash! Definitely not the Honami that's been leaking all over the internet!
