Nokia N1 tops the Apple iPad mini 3 and others on AnTuTu (UPDATE: N1 wins on GFX, too)
Now that the Android powered Nokia N1 has been officially introduced in China, how does it compare to the competition? According to a couple of tests run on the AnTuTu Benchmark site, the just introduced slate outscores the Apple iPad mini 3 and a wide variety of other slates as well. When it comes to CPU efficiency, the N1 scored 45,121 compared to the 28,446 scored by the latest version of Apple's 7.9-inch tablet.

Among other Android tablets, a Samsung branded model scored the highest with a tally of 15,899. If you're curious about the silicon under the N1's hood, it is a 64-bit quad-core 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580. The image processing efficiency test showed the N1 posting a score of 12,623. This time, the iPad mini 3 was pretty close with a score of 10,102. The Samsung slate tested had a score of 3190.

The Nokia N1 is powered by Android 5.0. This is not a forked version of the OS, so you will have access to Google Services and apps like YouTube and Google Maps. Priced at the equivalent of $257 USD, the AnTuTu benchmark tests suggest that the Nokia N1 gives you plenty of bang for the buck.

UPDATE: The Nokia N1 beatdown of the Apple iPad mini 3 also occurred on the GFX Benchmark site. Running three tests (Manhattan, T-Rex and 1080p T-Rex offscreen), the Nokia N1 beat the Apple iPad mini 3, although the margins of victory on each test was pretty slim.

It just means your needs are different. Just because YOU won't buy it doesn't mean others shouldn't know about other products. I, for one, know many people who are willing to pay a bit extra for that gorgeous and sharper amoled display.

Also, you do realize the cost will go much higher if they decided to bring to US right ?

Intel always was the way to go as Snapdragon is very power hungry and pricey.

43. TylerGrunter (Posts: 1515; Member since: 16 Feb 2012)


The only reason to go for Intel is that as of late they seem to be giving this SoCs nearly for free.
Intel used to be A LOT more pricey than Snapdragon and they have both around the same power consumption.

I would hold saying such statements before the power efficiency of this processor can be confirmed on N1.

LOL!!!! No mention of iPad Air 2. Why? Because it equals = 62,856. LOL!!! Their is no faster ARM processor until the next gen SnapDragon and Exynos release. I don't even think it will surpass 62,000. The next gen A9X, not A9 should get a performance increase by 25-30% in performance. That equals 77,000-80,000 on Antutu by this time next year.

And the iPad will STILL have no file system, making it useless for my light duty photo work (Not everyone needs the full workflow)Power is nothing without capability, and when the entire operating system is severely gimped so that its easy to use for the brainless hordes it pretty much makes it useless for me. and the only thing you would use that much power for on a tablet is gaming, which doesn't work out so well when all you have at your disposal are touch optimize games which pretty much suck when you go for first person shooters and other 3d heavy games. With my android tablet I can simply plug in an Xbox 360 controller with a $2 adapter and it just works no craziness needed.

You obviously don't have any iOS brainless hater. Just download Documents app from appstore and You'll get file manager that will open just every format except ipa. I f you want browse system files you need jailbreak and iFile but same goes for android.
And guess what : you can plug every controler via camera adapter (it costs more I agree on that) and it will work flawlessly.

I don't think on Android I can plug my guitar on trip and use it with 4 different apps at same time.

You do not need to root an Android device to use the file browser, hell most of my android devices came with a file browsing app stock. a hell of a lot more people take pictures then use a guitar. moving files around is simply easier on Android devices.

Or just get a surface pro 3 and laugh at them all. Seriously, 3d heavy games on a tablet...let me laugh a second. Ok, come on, the decent tablets are from samsung, costing nearly as much if not more than a surface pro 3.

I want to test drive this tablet bad, but i have had, and still do have android tablets, and they cant replace my 11.6 windows tablet from 2yrs ago.

Because it doesn't competes with it. It's mini rival not Air2 , agree that they have best homemade chip design but don't forget that there OS lack most of stuffs the android has and android has to run that . Other thing is that they use Hexacore Gpu of imagination who are the top dogs if not Nvidia.

Ok buddy, i agree that your iPad Air 2 is superior to every other tab in the world.No argument there. But i will pick N1 over your iPad Air 2 for the price.

That's great, but ipads are still vastly inferior because of how rotten apple limits their functionality. Having the best processor doesn't mean sh*t if apple restricts how you use it.
It's like owning a Ferrari and the company saying "well it does have 500+hp, but we put a restrictor plate in there so you cannot go faster than 40mph. Have fun!"
LOL apple

Nokia always does the best in what it does and I suspect that Nokia has worked hard on OS optimization and I wish they continue like that whereas Intel is really making some serious chips and it should also work more on it do consumers gets better experience. All the best Nokia.

And so what? All this benchmark scores and lots of big talk at the release party, then the device - just like many other Chinese phones today - has to be scrambled at a certain timepoint with a limited supply.
Everyone's saying Nokia's making a comeback, but if Nokia's going this superficial route without hardening what made them famous in the first place, then I'd say what's coming at you is NOT Nokia but whatever ODM's (e.g. Foxconn who manufactured N1) behind it. Nokia had lost its spirit.

Very interesting, but I'd like to see how much the power consumption is... it's not difficult to make a fast processor... but in a tablet, the problem is to find the balance between speed and power efficiency.

where was all of this Nokia support prior to the MS buyout? maybe if people supported the "king", the "king" would have never been dethrowned by Apple and Blackberry back in the early 2000s.

People are more excited, in hopes that Nokia can somehow make a resurgence, and basically stick it to MS, in terms of product sales/market saturation. Just kind of coincides with the current fad.

I'm not saying it's not a beautiful device. It is.

Since this Nokia N! tablet Uses Intel CPU and Chip technology. it will run Windows 10 Mobile OS
when it arrives later this year. Nokia can get The Windows 10 operating system for free too like Android because Microsoft gives it out license free to anyone who makes a Tablet that is under 9 inches.
this tablets screen is 7.9 inches well within the size Microsoft gives it's Mobile Smart phone and Tablet OS and Windows 8.1 OS for free. The question is will Nokia put Windows 10 Mobile with it's new Universal Apps on this device. The Windows smart phone Nokia Lumia fans are already it's best customers. they will buy a Windows version of this device to compliment their Operating system look for a Nokia Android smart phone with pure VUE tech in 2016 when they can make their OWN smart phones. I am not sure Microsoft has the total rights to Pure VUE camera tech.

it's interesting also to NOTE that the "Surface Mini" running Windows "RT" that MS CEO Nadella
an MS VP Steve Elop Killed was said to have 7.9 inch screen. Looks like Nokia changed the CPU on this device and re marketed this device as an Android device. I wish Microsoft does Produce a surface MINI running full Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 because their cheapest "Surface Pro" costs 799 USA Dollars. Microsoft sells no Microsoft branded Tablets that run full Windows 8.1 that Low income People can buy which is a very bad Mistake especially since Microsoft needs to get more customers to buy it's OWN branded Mobile products. their smart phones are not selling as well as Androids or Iphones MS needs a cheap MS Tablet to sell to Low and moderatly Income Folks

Uh ok well as somebody also addressed which Samsung Tab did they test? I know for sure the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is the best tablet out right now. The processor is faster then the N1 and the AMOLED is def worth the money. I have a Galaxy Tab S and got an iPad Air for holidays,I find myself using the Air more only because its connected through AT&T and my Galaxy is WiFi so I have to carry portable Mifi device. But if I'm watching movies or playing games I use the Samsung because the screen is #1 hands down. This tablet isn't gonna be 250$ in the U.S I figure 349.00 to 400$ because Nokia is overseas so they will pay less regardless. I think for the money if its 250-275 it's comparable to the Mini 3,but I would just spring for the Air at least if your gonna go Apple you can get them decently priced and a bigger but not gaudy screen. And if your going Android the Galaxy Tab S is #1 so think what you want but in a month or so it will be very much affordable for what you'll get out of the deal. I am already seeing the Tab S for 349.99 for 16G WiFi models and I would take that way over a 1st Gen Nokia tablet with a processor that's about a year old already.
