another new finding is the performance will not be affected even u are using video recording function….

I unboxed this phone yesterday, so no damage or viruses. 🙂

Hi all, I just want to share benchmark results for my phones.
ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML – quad core Intel Atom Z3580 @ 2.3 Ghz – Android Marshmallow – Score – 1311 (tested in Performance Mode)
Huawei P8 Lite 2017 – octa core Kirin 655 @ 2.1 and 1.7 Ghz – Android Nougat 7.0 – Score – 1816
Lenovo K8 Note – deca core Mediatek Helio X23 @ 2.3, 1.8 and 1.4 Ghz – Android Nougat 7.1.1 – Score – 1876
I figure that the benchmark does not use and A72 cores on the K8 Note?24. December 2017 at 23:36 #5534
There is no reason not to use them. Why do you think so?25. December 2017 at 0:02 #5537
It is all managed by android system and depends on which cpu power plan is used. On linux is possible use cpu affinity and “pin” thread to chosen processor (in our case we could run dosbox core on strongest cpu). However I cant get it work, somewhere I found that google team blocked this feature directly in kernel since android 5+ ;(
I updated list, thanks 🙂 It pretty grows 🙂25. December 2017 at 0:44 #5538
The score and how the benchmark ran in itself. A72 cores are said to be more powerful than A53 cores. With that kind of power, you’d at least think that you may get a better score from them. Even the P8 Lite ran more consistently in my tests (K8 Note runs very fast at the start of the benchmark but tanked at the later areas)
Then again, the Snapdragon 821 score was worse, and that is flagship level CPU :-\25. December 2017 at 14:01 #5539
Yeah, the bigger cores inside the 821 are tweaked A73 and it’s doing worse than most of the other chips. So it has a lot to do with software and instruction implementation. Unless you see another MTK with similar core setup doing far better, then that may be just how much it can do.25. December 2017 at 14:33 #5540
@kupao that’s a clear sign of overheating and throttling. It’s a Snapdragon thing, they don’t like cpu-heavy stuff.1. January 2018 at 3:28 #5553
Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
Android Oreo 8.1 (Nitrogen OS)
Default interactive governor, average: 1114 realtics1. January 2018 at 17:47 #5555
Wow, is Snapdragon 650 so good with default cpu settings? I can now buy one from second hand and I want update it with android 8, because I want implement some features introduced in Oreo. Runs Nitrogen OS without issues?1. January 2018 at 18:08 #5556
Very interesting. I wonder what they did to that particular chipset design. ?1. January 2018 at 18:43 #5557
Weird is why they put inside Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 slower Snapdragon 625 🙂1. January 2018 at 18:56 #5558
Because it is way more efficient (built on 14nm process while the 650 is on 28) and that makes a significant difference in battery life which is the phone’s strongest point. On other hand most users wouldn’t be able to feel the difference in power in most tasks. While Xiaomi faced some backlash by the enthusiasts for using it, I think it was a good choice overall and it’s no surprise that it easily became their best selling phone and the best selling mid ranger in China and India where they sold it officially. They used 625 in a lot of their phones last year and are using it once again in the Note 4’s successor.
By the way, you’ve written 825 instead of 625 in the table.2. January 2018 at 2:01 #5561
Yes, there are some Oreo custom roms for the Redmi Note 3. Im using Nitrogen OS since the first Nougat builds and they are great5. January 2018 at 4:35 #5582
Galaxy Note 8 (N9500) (Qualcomm 835)
normal mode (interactive governor) = ~1000
performance mode (performance governor) = ~800
