First Sony Xperia Z1 Quadrant, AnTuTu, GFXBench and Vellamo benchmarks

Posted: , by Ray S.

Tags:


The Xperia Z1 has (kind of) arrived, and what better way to spend our short time with it at IFA than to run a few benchmark test and get a first glimpse at the smartphone's performance?! Ladies and gents, let us present you the first benchmark results that we've gotten with Sony's newest flagship, the Xperia Z1!

We've run a bunch of popular benchmarks, such as Quadrant, AnTuTu, GFXBench and Vellamo in order to check out how the device's performance translates into numbers. However, please note that the device we've done the benchmarks with wasn't entirely final, meaning that the retail version of the Z1 may achieve slightly different results. Plus, we shouldn't forget that synthetic benchmarks don't always represent a device's performance, so it would be very unwise to draw any conclusions after seeing this video!

score
Higher is better
LG G2
20654
Sony Xperia Z1
20277

Samsung Galaxy S4

Motorola Moto X

Note: The Xperia Z1 benchmarks have been run on an early, non-final version of the phone, so results may be different with the retail units.

Never before has a car been driven using a smartphone, but the O2 Gurus are about to become the first people ever to do it. Using the new Sony Xperia Z1, with its amazing 20.7 megapixel camera and the detachable QX10 smartlens, Maddy and Gavin go head to head in a race against the clock around the world famous Brands Hatch Circuit in Kent.

Yes, this "experiment" in racing track was pretty gimmicky, but in my opinion Sony's Attachable Lens by it self is not a gimmick.

I have found this video in YouTube and thought that it will be pretty interesting or at least atractive to watch for tech enthusiasts or people who gonna buy Attachable Sony's Lens or Xperia Z1 smartphone. And yes, I know that this "experiment" in racing track was pretty gimmicky, but in my opinion Sony's Attachable Lens by it self is not a gimmick. And that was all my point by posting it here.

again!
running beachmarks while the phone is charging
that will cause lower score than it should has

you're right it will heat up the phone and cause cpu and gpu throttle that's why the performance on the benchmark s wil be shrinked to half or less

Reason they are lower in Antutu is because Samsung and HTC have better optimization. Also Adreno 330 should be getting much more FPS than the Moto X.

I want this phone so bad, but no news on when it will hit US shore, or if it will hit it by that matter.

It should be equal to LG G2 or Z Ultra. But why?

21. JMartin22 (Posts: 762; Member since: 30 Apr 2013)


The LG G2, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, Galaxy Note 3, and Galaxy S4 LTE A all use the same chipset, and in theory, get the same scores. However, there's a few scenarios that impact the final result.

- Whether or not the phone is hitting a thermal throttle roof (this can be bypassed artificially by storing the phone in a very cold space)
- How well optimized the software of a device is to its hardware
- Frequency output caps placed by the manufacturer. (Can be overcome by rooting and OC'ing the CPU/GPU)

does it get hot? long gaming session is understood, but I want to know about normal to medium level usage for extended duration, like an hour or above. I remember reading, that Z used to get hot even after normal use. I am really looking forward to get the Z1, just this alleged heating issue is one niggle. can you please verify that?
