The Meizu MX5 scores 53,330 on AnTuTu

The Meizu MX5 scores 53,330 on AnTuTu
As most AnTuTu users know, the device whose score they were chasing all of last year was the Meizu MX4. With an average tally of 47,765, the MX4 edged out the Nexus 6. The stock Android phablet averaged 47,079. In third place with a score of 45,817 was the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the OnePlus One were fourth and fifth with scores of 44,669 and 44,516, respectively.

Tuesday morning in China, the Meizu MX5 was unveiled. Would the MX5 be an AnTuTu powerhouse like its predecessor? The answer to that question can be found by watching the video of Meizu's event. Stop the video at the 27 minute 42 second mark and you'll see that the Meizu MX5 had quite an impressive 53,330 score on AnTuTu.

The Meizu MX5 is equipped with a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 401ppi. The 64-bit MediaTek Helio X10 SoC is under the hood, containing an octa-core 2.2 CPU and the PowerVR G6200 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside with 64GB of native storage. A 20.7MP camera adorns the back of the handset and a 5MP snapper can be found in front. A 3150mAh battery keeps the lights on, and the metal-clad smartphone comes with the Flyme OS pre-installed. The latter is based on Android 5.0.

Will the Meizu MX5 follow in the footsteps of the MX4 and top the AnTuTu Benchmark site this year? It is way too early to say, but the phone is off to a great start.

Thanks for the tip!

Antutu doesn't mean s**t. Does anyone have Geekbench numbers?

So MediaTek still has a lot to learn, Samsung and Qualcomm still are the leaders.

MEdiatek sucks when it comes to GPU....why use a crappy GPU for top of the line chips

My 9month old Note 4 scores around the same with an old Snapdragon 805. Seems nothing can touch the Galaxy S6 so far.

Why do people care about benchmarks? They're different everytime. All I care about is if my phone doesn't lag everytime I try to do something.

And how do you check that BEFORE buying? Because that's the reason why people care about benchmarks.

Actually benchmarks reveal very little about phone's performance in everyday use scenarios.

That may be your personal opinion, my experience is that they say a lot about the chipset and the performance of the phone over the time.

I am curious about how well the latest Exynos would run on a 720p display like the Alpha. The Note 4 despite the newer GPU performed worse than the Alpha because of the resolution. The Exynos in the GS6 with a 750p display would kill the crap out of anything. Fortunately for Android fans, they don't care about benchmarks at the expense of display quality like Apple does.

The Note 4 performed better than Alpha. Check out the Exynos Note 4 variant. Besides, there is almost no game that runs at 1440p anyway. So the real world performance(not on-screen benchmarks), a QHD screen performs about the same as a 1080p one. Though the game quality also remains the same as a 1080p one.

Top the AnTuTu chart? No, it's already behind the Samsung S6 which scores 67,000+,

69,000+ actually.

And the price is actually 1/3rd of the galaxy S6(in most part of the world)....

I don't really care about Antutu, long as my phone performs fluidly and the graphics aren't choppy, I'm all good..

Then you should avoid this phone the graphic sucks.

I'm more curious about the graphics performance score.. In real world it it the only thing that end users will feel. A UI that stutters or a camera that captures videos with dropped frames is something that would cause a gripe. Anyway have high hopes for mediatek atleast they're progressing and heading in the right direction unlike qualcomm who took a dive with the sd810

Awful, the MediaTek Helio X10 (AKA MT6795M) uses a PowerVR G6200 GPU and the GPU performance is already known: around the same as Adreno 320, which is just barely enough to move the UI at 1080p. You can see the performance of the HTC One E9+ wich uses the same SoC here:

Somehow MX5's GPU is significantly more powerful than E9+ like LeTV X600's. It's comparable to most powerful Adreno 330. How can they do that open to debate. It can't be done with overclocking IMO. Difference is too much. It doesn't seems possible to me with just 2 cluster of PowerVR G6.

You are right on both accounts, I only checked the HTC one E9+ because it has been quite tested alreay, but the difference is huge. Looks quite fishy to me, like some insane overclocking to boost up the real performance of PowerVR G6200 (which is nothing to write home about).
