Meizu M2 Note scores less than its predecessor on AnTuTu

Meizu M2 Note scores less than its predecessor on AnTuTu
Earlier today, when we told you that the Meizu M2 Note had been unveiled by the manufacturer, we mentioned that the company had cut some corners compared with the Meizu M1 Note in order to keep the price down. Those little moves made by Meizu might have revealed themselves in an AnTuTu Benchmark test of the new model.

The new Meizu M2 Note scored 31,638 on an AnTuTu test, lower than the 40,000 that the M1 Note was able to tally. It also was just a bit above the 31,000 score obtained by the Meizu M1 Note mini.

While there are a number of variables that can affect an AnTuTu score each time you run a phone through the test, with the M2 Note much of the blame for the lower score can be found under the hood. Instead of the MediaTek MT6752 chipset used on the M1 Note, Meizu decided to go with the MT6753 on the new model. The latter has a lower 1.3GHz clock speed on its A53 cores, compared to the 1.7GHz speed allowed on the A53 cores used on the MT6752. Additionally, the Mali-T720 GPU found on the MT6753 is not quite up to the performance offered by the MT6752's Mali-T760.

It's not all bad news for the Meizu M2 Note. The new model does have a microSD slot for additional memory needs. And priced at the equivalent of $129 USD, its not going to send you to the poor house. By the way, last year's top scoring model on AnTuTu was another Meizu device. The Meizu MX4 had an average score of 47,765 in 2014.

Thanks for the tip!

Can't believe you still care about the scores on Antutu....
