Vivo XShot becomes the first smartphone to top 40,000 on AnTuTu
This handset comes from China where it is produced by BBK Vivo. The device carries a screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 and is powered by a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC CPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. Right now, the phone has Android 4.3 installed. BBK Vivo is the company that produced the first smartphone with a QHD resolution screen, which was the Xplay 3S.
Returning to the Vivo XShot, just the other day, we told you about the beastly 24MP rear snapper on the phone, which has OIS, a dual LED flash, and an aperture of f/1.8. The latter means that pictures can be taken in low-light conditions. The front-facing camera is believed to be 7.68MP, keeping with the camera-centric tone of the phone.
So far, the Vivo XShot has not been introduced, but as the first smartphone ever to hit the 40,000 mark on AnTuTu, you can bet that it is eagerly awaited.
Thanks, Marco and Marcos

meh.....benchmarks do not tell real picture......in fact the main problem of chines branded phones is that they have really good hardware but poor software optimization.... they score high in benchmarks because these apps push hardware to the limit where the normal phone software won't ever reach...

It seems the only phones with good specs these days are made by Chinese companies.

It won't change the fact that Chinese companies are making some great phone hardware. I also like that with Chinese phones, the bootloader is not often locked. Tired of HTC and Samsung and their locked bootloaders, developer models, etc. Every phone should be able to be a developer model without any BS or extra cost.
The software side of Chinese phones will take some time to sort out, but it's getting better fast. The OnePlus may be the phone that sets a new example of how much better the software is now.

FYI, Samsung phones are the easiest to root and unlock so you don't know what you're talking about.
Have fun with your Chinese phones running 4.2 forever.

That used to be true and changed recently on the big US carriers such as ATT and Verizon. For example, I believe at this time, there is no root for the ATT Galaxy S5.
OnePlus is not running 4.2. I think you need to wake up to the fact that the Chinese companies are evolving quickly. It will still take some time, but I hope the day and age of paying a 100% price premium for a phone is close to over.

FYI Smurf, Samsung is not the easiest to root and unlock. Get your facts straight. I have rooted HTC, Samsung, Sony, Motorola, and even China phones. The easiest is Sony, next is China phones, last is HTC.
29. PapaSmurf (Posts: 9076; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Yes it is. Easy as 1,2,3. If you know what you're doing, it takes less than five minutes.

You have no idea what you're talking about Smurf. Have you ever tried to root a Sony phone? I think not, you're just acting smart.

What are you talking about?! Brands like OPPO and Xiaomi are extremely easy to root! Especially OPPO, they even encourage you to put a custom rom on your phone.
From my experience Samsung is in fact quite user friendly to root, but nothing was easier than my OPPO Find 5, I rooted it within 10 mins flat.

Yeah, sorry smurf, Samsung is not the easiest, not since Knox has been on it.

maybe smurf was talking about the old samsung phones
22. networkdood (Posts: 6329; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
Yeah, used to be - if you get a T Mobile Samsung, then it still is...I hate locked bootloaders and Verizon is known for that...
30. PapaSmurf (Posts: 9076; Member since: 14 May 2012)
That's because T-Mobile cares about it's customers. Almost all T-Mobile reps on the store have their phone a rooted or jail broken, though they never disclose or promote it.

samsung phones are also the ugliest phone. Just look at those huge bezels and retarded back cover. Chinese companies like Oppo and OnePlus are making way better smartphones for a smaller price tag, especially OnePlus
31. PapaSmurf (Posts: 9076; Member since: 14 May 2012)
If you buy a phone just for design instead of functionality, better settle for a Nokia 3310 then because you can't get the beat of both worlds.
If someone mentions the Z2, I swear I'm going to lose it because that phone is severely flawed.

Here, here - which is I went with a Chinese phone - works great, too, but, it did not have the 4G LTE bands built in and I only get EDGE with it - still, I am mostly on wifi, so I am good, for now.
38. Ashoaib (Posts: 2499; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)
I have nothing but to agree with you that chinese companies are making really nice phones recently

lol when its not a samsung phone people go mad over it saying the score is pointless

Circle of life my friend haha. It's all about End user experience in my book :D

This is a great Phone that is never "Coming to America"
23. networkdood (Posts: 6329; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
My Coolpad 9976A never came to America - it looks like a 7 inch screen version of the Note 3, but, you can still go online and buy the phone from Merimobiles.com or jd...
24. networkdood (Posts: 6329; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
I scored 35k on my Nexus 5...not stock, but still, I thought, a nice score...
26. networkdood (Posts: 6329; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
Wow, the phone looks great, but for 680.00+? At least you get your money's worth compared to a Note 3, though...
32. Topcat488 (Posts: 1178; Member since: 29 Sep 2012)
where does it say that this will cost as much as the Note 3... I haven't found a price for it, but if it did cost $680.00 it's worth it i guess... I like that price of the 1+one though. O.o :)

I wish HTC had a camera like that on their One M8
36. Retro-touch (Posts: 265; Member since: 24 Oct 2011)
You can count on HTC to drop the ball on camera by going with Ultra Pixel gimmick that produces crappy photos
37. johnnysmashum (Posts: 1; Member since: 22 Apr 2014)
What did the 2.5 version of HTC one score.
