Factoring its low-res (1024 x 768) 8” display, one would imagine that its processor is going to have an easier time performing most tasks, and rightfully so, our speculations are instantly confirmed as the Element swimmingly executes most basic tasks without much fluff. Navigating across the homescreen with a static wallpaper, it exhibits the fluid movements we’d commonly expect out of a high-end device. However, it’s not entirely without its flaws, as some minor evidence of sluggishness pops up when traversing through its homescreen in portrait with a live wallpaper. Nonetheless, it’s barely an annoyance that sticks out tremendously like on other tablets, and as a whole, the Pantech Element appears to run smoothly out of the box.
Charming us right out of the gates, we’re satisfied with the numbers put out by the Pantech Element with the various benchmarks tests that we ran, thus, putting it on the same pedestal as the Pantech Burst from before. Furthermore, it’s in the same class as other highly respected members in the Android community, like the Samsung Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Nexus, and LG Optimus 2x. Naturally, benchmark numbers are one thing, but it doesn’t necessarily predict the real world performance of the tablet. In any event we’ll be testing it our rigorously to see how it fares, but here are the results.
- Quadrant: 3,328
- AnTutu: 6,323
- Linpack: 80.356 MFLOPS at 2.1 seconds
- Neocore: 55.7 FPS
- Vellamo: 1,215
