Quick comment on processors
The MediaTek MT6592M processor got 23849 points at the Antutu benchmarking. (tested for Huawei G750-T01, GizmoChina)
When we look at the detailed comparison of the MediaTek MT6592 and Snapdragon 800 processor chips at ChinaSmartphoneReview, the scores at Antutu shows that “Snapdragon 800 still is the fastest among the Soc but not by a large margin”. But, when measuring the processor power “MT6592 blew away the competition scoring highest among the two.”
The report further says that in 3D graphics rendering the octa-core processor shows struggle. But overall performance of the processor is satisfactory enough to never let you down. We however will wait to see how the software tweaks done by Xolo impacts the performance of the processor, or the phone as a whole.
