Nokia N1 tops the Apple iPad mini 3 and others on AnTuTu (UPDATE: N1 wins on GFX, too)
Now that the Android powered Nokia N1 has been officially introduced in China, how does it compare to the competition? According to a couple of tests run on the AnTuTu Benchmark site, the just introduced slate outscores the Apple iPad mini 3 and a wide variety of other slates as well. When it comes to CPU efficiency, the N1 scored 45,121 compared to the 28,446 scored by the latest version of Apple's 7.9-inch tablet.

Among other Android tablets, a Samsung branded model scored the highest with a tally of 15,899. If you're curious about the silicon under the N1's hood, it is a 64-bit quad-core 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580. The image processing efficiency test showed the N1 posting a score of 12,623. This time, the iPad mini 3 was pretty close with a score of 10,102. The Samsung slate tested had a score of 3190.

The Nokia N1 is powered by Android 5.0. This is not a forked version of the OS, so you will have access to Google Services and apps like YouTube and Google Maps. Priced at the equivalent of $257 USD, the AnTuTu benchmark tests suggest that the Nokia N1 gives you plenty of bang for the buck.


Thanks for the tip!

UPDATE: The Nokia N1 beatdown of the Apple iPad mini 3 also occurred on the GFX Benchmark site. Running three tests (Manhattan, T-Rex and 1080p T-Rex offscreen), the Nokia N1 beat the Apple iPad mini 3, although the margins of victory on each test was pretty slim.

Wonder what the Samsung tablet was because there's no way it was a Tab S.

It just means your needs are different. Just because YOU won't buy it doesn't mean others shouldn't know about other products. I, for one, know many people who are willing to pay a bit extra for that gorgeous and sharper amoled display. Also, you do realize the cost will go much higher if they decided to bring to US right ?

Of course, the Z3580 offers a flagship grade perfomance with a cheap price.

Intel always was the way to go as Snapdragon is very power hungry and pricey.

The only reason to go for Intel is that as of late they seem to be giving this SoCs nearly for free. Intel used to be A LOT more pricey than Snapdragon and they have both around the same power consumption.

I would hold saying such statements before the power efficiency of this processor can be confirmed on N1.

LOL!!!! No mention of iPad Air 2. Why? Because it equals = 62,856. LOL!!! Their is no faster ARM processor until the next gen SnapDragon and Exynos release. I don't even think it will surpass 62,000. The next gen A9X, not A9 should get a performance increase by 25-30% in performance. That equals 77,000-80,000 on Antutu by this time next year.

And the iPad will STILL have no file system, making it useless for my light duty photo work (Not everyone needs the full workflow)Power is nothing without capability, and when the entire operating system is severely gimped so that its easy to use for the brainless hordes it pretty much makes it useless for me. and the only thing you would use that much power for on a tablet is gaming, which doesn't work out so well when all you have at your disposal are touch optimize games which pretty much suck when you go for first person shooters and other 3d heavy games. With my android tablet I can simply plug in an Xbox 360 controller with a $2 adapter and it just works no craziness needed.

You obviously don't have any iOS brainless hater. Just download Documents app from appstore and You'll get file manager that will open just every format except ipa. I f you want browse system files you need jailbreak and iFile but same goes for android. And guess what : you can plug every controler via camera adapter (it costs more I agree on that) and it will work flawlessly. I don't think on Android I can plug my guitar on trip and use it with 4 different apps at same time.

You do not need to root an Android device to use the file browser, hell most of my android devices came with a file browsing app stock. a hell of a lot more people take pictures then use a guitar. moving files around is simply easier on Android devices.

Yes, you can! And can do more on Android.

Or just get a surface pro 3 and laugh at them all. Seriously, 3d heavy games on a tablet...let me laugh a second. Ok, come on, the decent tablets are from samsung, costing nearly as much if not more than a surface pro 3. I want to test drive this tablet bad, but i have had, and still do have android tablets, and they cant replace my 11.6 windows tablet from 2yrs ago.

I have a Surface Pro 1, I cannot justify upgrading yet.

yea I love how the SP3 doesn't make the list for comparisons...oh wait. it's the MOST powerful "tablet" on the market. no way PA could admit to that.
