ZTE device (Axon 2?) scores a jaw-dropping 140,086 on AnTuTu

ZTE device (Axon 2?) scores a jaw-dropping 140,086 on AnTuTu
Recently, specs of a previously unseen ZTE device popped up on GFXBench. Packed to the gills with powerful specs including a Snapdragon 820 processor, it has been speculated that ZTE's 'A2017' device could be the successor the Axon smartphone. Now, the very same handset has blazed through AnTuTu with a monstrous score of 140,086. 

For comparison, the Snapdragon 820 edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 scores 125,288 points on AnTuTu, while the LG G5 musters over 130,000. In fact, the ZTE device is only bettered by the Xiaomi Mi 5, which recently set new standards with a score of 179,566

Away from the Snapdragon 820 SoC, the device is equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of real estate. The powerhouse will also be furnished with a quad-HD 1440 x 2560 display, 21-megapixel main camera and the very latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

There's no telling whether this device is the rumored Axon 2 or something else. But with specs and leaks popping up all over the place, it probably won't be long before ZTE officially unleashes the beast.

140K? Despite featuring the exact same SD820 and Quad HD resolution? WTF! I take that score with a truckload of salt.

Am not sure what these chinese do with SOCs but they usually ahead of the pack comparing Meizu Pro 5 vs Galaxy S6 both Exynos Xiaomi Mi Note Pro Vs all SD 810 phones And now this ZTE Last year i almost got this Axion phone since it has an inbuilt HiFi DAC and lots of other enticing goodies but its UI is damn UGLY

The Chinese just knock your SOCs off

Benchmarks cheating.

I have the Axon Pro and it's a great phone, if you don't like the UI just put a Launcher on it, that's what I did.

I have the Axon Pro too and I am all in. If ZTE puts out a 6-7 incher, with Pro specs (and a better battery), I would buy the $#%/ out of that phone.

I wonder if they are using the faster ram like Xiaomi in the mi5?

If it uses the regular SD 820, it uses 1866 MHz LPDDR4. Basically all SD820 have the same speed RAM, unless it's a lower bin. like the Mi5 lower end variant.

First Mi5 pro rumored scores, then HTC 10 and now Axon. I'm starting to believe there is a chance the 820 on S7 it's just not optimized properly. I guess we'll see in two more weeks when the G5, the HTC 10 and the Mi5 Pro are on sale.

that we will see when all of them are out there and speed tests measuring opening speed and multitasking apps per lap are available.

140K isn't a big improvement from ~130K on the 820 S7 That could easily be better thermal design or firmware The higher scores on the Mi5 Pro and HTC 10 are quite strange, not sure why. Could be cheating, more likely IMO Could be newer firmware and thermal design (full metal body on the HTC 10), but less likely IMO

Damn, the best I got on my s7 edge with sd 820 was 133k.

Samsung intentionaly lower it performance to balance with baterry life. Why care so much about number so much I'm sure I can't notice the difference.

mabye its an sd 820 on a 1080p res

And as usual it will sit on top of ZTE's ridiculously bloated skin, this thing will defitnetly not be as fast as the S7 and Edge and vice versa, especially the Exynos version. you know i dotn understand why people would buy a ZTE phone that is near the price of the S7 which is the best phone on the market right now ? Like why?

Either like some have said here they are falsify the results, duping the the benchmark app or the Bench mark app is just just not coded to handle and test the SoC properly.

6S is getting 132k. LOL!!! Why is this news? The 820 is comparable to the A9. The 820 is not even in the same sentence when the A10 releases.

You do realized that the manufacturing process Will likely be done by Samsung using either their 14 nm process or smaller right. Yes, TMSC will also play a role but without the capacity a huge portion will likely be done by Samsung. So without the Samsung capacity Apples design of the A10 would be just a design. So it is a symbiotic relationship between Samsung/Apple inc. A love hate relationship that only benefits us the consumers. Apple the best designs Samsung the best maufacture.

This sounds like an anti-Apple speech. Bottom line...the A series processors are very good. Exynos are good processors as well. I believe SnapDragon's aren't as good as either Exynos or A. Apple will most likely stick with 16nm FinFet process as the results were better than Samsung's 14nm FinFet. I am waiting for Apple to release 4 cores on the A. If this happens benchmarks will be destroyed in sit within the i5/i7 range of 3800/7000 within GB.

The A10 is probably going to be 16FF+, TSMC's newer 16nm FinFet process Apple can't simply add more cores (just ask AMD) If Apple release a 4 core SoC they will have to use smaller cores or a big.LITTLE-like config, otherwise it would overheat None the less, it would be very interesting to see

But iPhone 6S has a much lower sceren resolution, 750p vs 1440p.

And Antutu v6.0 is only tests single corep erformance In real usage both single core and multi core performance are important
