A 6-core processor on a smartphone is a novelty (I don’t know of any other besides the R7), and I was curious to see what difference it makes. I ran two popular benchmark tests on the TECNO R7 just to see what they would turn up. What is the fun in benchmark scores if you cannot compare? As such, I am pitting the R7 against two quad-core devices in its class. Have a look:
|Huawei Honor 3C||Motorola Moto G||TECNO R7|
|1.3 GHz quad-core Mediatek + Mali 400 GPU||1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 + Adreno 305 GPU||1.5 GHz 6-core MTK MT6592 + Mali 450 GPU|
|AnTuTu: 17,027||AnTuTu: 17,214||AnTuTu: 22,324|
|Quadrant: 5,887||Quadrant: 8,505||Quadrant: 9,653|
The R7 came out with good results, beating both compared quad-core smartphones back significantly. Benchmark scores aside, however, the R7 runs very smooth in use. But then, it is still early days. I will have more to say about this in my full review at a later date.
