There's something compelling about benchmark scores. Sure, they don't necessarily indicate how well a smartphone performs in real life, but it is nice knowing what a device's processor is capable of, at least in theory. And now that the Motorola RAZR i
has been announced with a promising 2GHz Intel chip inside, many smartphone aficionados are probably wondering what kind of figures the handset is capable of reaching. Well, read along to find out.
The folks at Engadget
ran several benchmarks on a pre-production Motorola RAZR i and shared the results with the world to see. They compared the device's performance with that of a Motorola DROID RAZR M
, equipped with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 running at 1.5GHz and a ZTE Grand X IN
powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Medfield Z2460 chip. Overall, the DROID RAZR M had the upper hand in all tests except the SunSpider benchmark.
Of course, there's always the possibility that the RAZR i's scores might improve once its software gets finalized. How the smartphone performs on a day-to-day basis will become known soon after it is released on the market, which is scheduled to happen next month.
