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. I’m pretty sure the phone sucks, considering the score it posts on Antutu, So how do you mean by “beating…”

  2. 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

  3. 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
