Xiaomi Mi 5 scores 179,566 on AnTuTu

Performs better? Have you watched some speed tests? S7 is destroying Mi 5 :-) I saw Exynos S7 vs Mi 5 second version with higher clocks, but 3GB of RAM.

Dear #bodzio1809, if S7 is already superior, WHY in the history on mankind were you watching that video? Atleast you are concerned about the thing that MI5 may rip off your S7! Hahahahahaha

Because I am unbiased and I want to know all facts? I got Exynos S7E. It's destroying even S820 S7. Have fun with your worse and slower device :-)

You are irritated because a cheaper phone looks and performs better than your current phone..

That's how it is. Fanboys gonna be fanboys - with bias included.

As you are quite new to PA, i would like to inform you that i am not a fan of any Brand... i only admire great package in a smartphone (from price to feature)... I don't even care about Xiaomi, Samsung, Apple's profit share or market share...

PapaSmurf You do not know me. What makes you say I'm not new here? Because you sound like talking out of your ass. And what's wrong with the number of my posts?

He's says that because we all know you're Hexacore. And this isn't his second account, Smurf. This is 3 or 4 at least.

Chinese Copycat not only copies samsung and apple, and now cheating on benchmark too? These benchmark tests really just proved how worthless and useless they are.

Their software is optimized than samsung. I am using their MIUI 7 on my Note 4.

That's Chinese quality for you. This laughable score cheating really makes me cringe. And their attempt to imitate Samsung is not a copycat thing, I'd rather describe it in a more corrected term: "a counterfeit Samsung Galaxy phone". They literally can buy popularity from blind customers, but they definitely CAN'T buy class. Only moronic people would risk themselves with this non-historical background company.

Like that classy company who hired people to post fake reviews about their competitors? http://qz.com/139092/samsung-paid-bloggers-to-kick-htc-while-it-was-down/

They stopped that shortly after the Galaxy S4 was released, no cheating from Samsung any more.

It's still interesting the they're the one who started the idea.

Are those numbers with smartphone encrypted or not encrypted? Can it be encrypted if it is not encrypted? What kind of encryption does it run if it is encrypted? Xiaomi's own encryption with a back door or encryption from Marshmallow?

The number of encryption in your comment is too damn high..I think PA should encrypt your comment too

Your statement did not contribute to an answer so there for your criticism was not very helpful

Not criticism. saif2711 was just joking, wasn't he? Chill out.

GSMArena tested the variant and got 130k. Just proves how easy it is to fake Antutu scores. It's the same SoC, you can't get 30% extra performance out of it, unless you overclock.

LOL those Geekbench screenshots are from GSMArena but not quoted in the Source. http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_mi_5-review-1411p5.php

Just more proof PA can't do anything right. They need a whole new staff. Trying their hardest to make every phone they review that isn't a "Galaxy", look better than a Galaxy. So every other site scores the S7 at 131,000 on Antutu, PA comes up with 116,000. Other site gets 131,000 on Antutu for the Xioami, and PA somehow gets 179,000. LOL Yet they don't think anything is wrong with their testing?!

@TechieXP1969 Just more proof that YOU can't get things right! Did you even check the source link? That 179k AnTuTu score was not benchmarked by PA! Stop trolling PA staff and educate yourself!

Irrelevant really, they still posted it and added their own comments. No quality control here on, if it gets hits they post it.
