Xiaomi Mi 5 beats Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 in AnTuTu

Asian startup Xiaomi is all the buzz in China, and it has just unveiled its much anticipated flagship phone for 2016: the Xiaomi Mi 5.

And it's a beast.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 is powered by the Snapdragon 820 system chip and while the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 feature the same chip, the Mi 5 is able to top the mainstream flagships in benchmarking app AnTuTu.

The score that the Xiaomi Mi 5 get is over 140,000, while the LG G5 scores above 130,000 and the Galaxy S7 equipped with an Exynos chip clocks in at around 120,000. That's quite the achievement, don't you think?

Poor fanboi couldn't accept the fact that their so called the most powerful exynos is defeated by snapdragon. Last year Samsung fanboi always boasted about exynos but now look at their faces hahahhahaha

I know he's being a toll or what not, but please don't take the words "please kill yourself" to lightly. It's not something you should say regardless of who you're saying it to.

You do realise that the Mi5 runs on FHD right while the S7 runs on QHD? and you do realise the scores could change once the phones are available to consumers?

And yes your life must be sad to actually find it 'amusing' like you just won a lottery just because the exynos scored less, even when the scores are from pre-release phones?

Well kudos to Sony and Xiaomi for releasing top end phones with 1080p screens. Better performance and more battery life.

Aye, it's beautiful and great.
But they could've done something like, Standard with 1080p, High with 2k and Exclusive with QHD display.

Not really, Samsung users can change resolution in games, for general use it doesn't matter.

On-screen 3d benchmarks are irrelevant these days.

That's the exact point here. No point of cramming every single option in to the phone if it cannot perform like a champ. Who needs Qhd. 1080p is way adequate. We must consider every aspect of the phone. Not just the display. If u want a display, go and buy a 4K TV instead. Putting so much pixels in to a tiny screen is not innovation but utter madness..

Even 4K TV's are useless without actual 4K content AND 4K broadcasts!
And no I don't consider a s**tty smartphone videoclip in 4K a proper 4K video. There are 1080P bluray demo discs with more quality and sharpness than what a crappy smartphone can deliver. Or do you really think that cinematographers from National geographic and Discovery Channel use smartphones to record those fantastic nature films?

Unfortunately it appears that consumers have more common sense than CEO's (and CTO's) from multi-billion dollar corporations.

I tend to look at the final result in terms of how the phone actually behaves, bc I know that cpu benchmark scores aren't everything!! These LG and Sammy wars are just amusing!!! I would however, like to point out that Phone Arena is quite biased towards Sammy!!! If the Exynos chip would've beat the LG G5, the headlines would've probably read something like this "Samsung Galaxy S7 DEMOLISHES LG G5" or "Will LG's CPU Best Samsung's? Not this year". But since the LG G5 actually beat Samsung's, the title was quite subtle and merely informative!!! Lol!! Also Phone Arena posted that the Exynos scored around 120,000. Not even close, it barely did 116,000, so it was upped in score. Where the LG G5 was downgraded to " just above 130,000" when in reality it was closer to 135,000. Funny things if you read between th lines!!! I have an LG G4 and Imm looking forward to buying the LG G5!!!

I don't know but I have a hunch Samsung played it safe with their exynos at launch and waited to see benchmarks of sd with other oems. .wait the final release coz Sammy might tweak its exynos and blow people's mind.* Samsung game

That name, Mi 'Note' itself is a ripoff. These chinese companies just couldn't stop copying these bigger companies, which spent billions on R&D.

They are able to sell phones at a much cheaper price? Of course! They don't have to spend any bucks on R&D, all they gotta do is copy!

kobainez- The new processors in the Galaxy S7 and edge phones boast high performance but will also run cooler, using a "tube" that helps keep the phone cool in your hand, "Thermal spreader" Water-cooling technology to avoid the phones overheating. Are you so foolish?

This is why you stay with a 1080 display.

Umm, why exactly? To brag about benchmarks?

Because benchmarks are the only graphic rendering that will actually render in QHD. Besides, you can tone down resolution in real games. You can play at 1080p on a QHD screen, but you can't play at QHD on a 1080p screen.

Goodness, the world is getting dumber by the day.

82. epdm2be (Posts: 487; Member since: 20 Apr 2012)


Would you actually see the difference in sharpness when playing at QHD? Is the decrease in framerate really worth the additional pixels? Then there's the overall decrease in battery life AND the higher price. Especially for a device that spend half its life with its screen off?

A pity I'm only about 6 months into my Mi Note Pro usage. (I live to an 18 month phone cycle)

Good looks, just like the Note Pro.
Awesome power.
And the loveliness of MIUI.

The price rumours kinda spoil the party a bit tho :(

It's not due to over clocking. It's the sensible choice of a 1080p screen that does the trick.

1080p vs QHD doesn't affect Antutu that much, only ~3k.

just look at iPhone 6S 750p vs 1080p in 6S Plus, 1080p has twice the pixels of that 750p.
QHD is not even twice the 1080p.
