Benchmark results

AnTuTu 9 - Benchmark

The AnTuTu 9 benchmark is very well suited to measuring the performance of a smartphone. AnTuTu 9 is quite heavy on 3D graphics and can now also use the "Metal" graphics interface. In AnTuTu, memory and UX (user experience) are also tested by simulating browser and app usage. AnTuTu version 9 can compare any ARM CPU running on Android or iOS. Devices may not be directly comparable when benchmarked on different operating systems.




Geekbench 5 - Single Core

Geekbench 5 is a multi-system benchmark and measures the performance of a computer. Geekbench version 5 contains new test fields such as augmented reality applications and calculations for machine learning.
