Tests: How well does the TECNO R7’s 6-core processor perform?

Posted by

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:

R7 AnTuTu

R7 Quadrant

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.


  1. Awesome research but There’s no hexa core mtk processor for any mobile. Mtk6592 is octacore. Please check the number of cores on the Tecno r7 on antutu. I suspect its quadcore. Thanks

  2. Pls i’ll like to knw the use and the quality of this phone cos am thinking of getting it cos my Phantom A+ was stolen. or if u have any other devices that i can go 4 with price range of 45k
