Redmi Note 3 India version beats LeTV Le 1s in benchmarks, price seen around 17k

benchmark-tests-letv-le-1s-vs-redmi-note-3-india

Latest benchmark results from Antutu and Geekbench indicate that the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is a monster in terms of performance when compared to any of its competitors including the LeTV 1s and the Samsung Galaxy A9.

According to tests, the Redmi Note 3 — India version — scores a blazing 78,000 on Antutu, which is almost 60% higher than the 1s, which scores about 50,000 on the same test.

A clear difference can be seen between the two models in CPU and graphics departments. In CPU performance, Le 1s scores about 17,500, while the Redmi Note 3 scores 25,800.

It should be noted that Xiaomi’s model comes with the new Snapdragon 650 8952 processor, while the other one has Helio X10 6795 Turbo. In terms of clockspeed, the 8952 runs at 1.4 GHz, while the 6795T operates at 2.2 GHz.

Both are made on the relatively old 28 nanometer technology, which is the reason why the SD650 has been restricted to a clockspeed of just 1.4 GHz. Despite the slower speed, the Qualcomm chipset holds the edge in many use cases because of the new ARM Cortex A72 design contained in it.

In terms of graphics performance too, the Redmi model overshadows the X10, scoring around 18,000 points in Antutu against 13,000 for Le 1s.

The difference is visible in the other popular benchmark as well — Geekbench 3.

In single-core mode, the Xiaomi model comes up with a blazing 1600 points, while the LeTV handset manages only 990 points.

High single-core scores indicate that the phone will feel very fast if only a couple of applications are running.

If, on the other hand, you are running 6 or more applications at the same time (such as listening to music, downloading a torrent file and browsing), what matters are multi-core results.

On this front, however, the LeEco 1s is clearly superior as it has got eight cores while the Redmi model has only six. Not surprisingly, on multi-core model, the 1s scores an impressive 5,300 points to the Redmi Note’s 3,800 points.

WHICH IS BETTER?

However, we must warn against going purely by overall benchmark scores, such as those of Antutu. For example, out of the nearly 28,000 point difference between the two phones, around 13,500 points are coming in the UX (user experience) department, which basically measures how optimized the software is.

Similarly, though both phones have 3 GB of DDR3 RAM, the Note gets 7,200 points in RAM performance while the other one only gets 4,700 — again pointing to better software optimizations.

Finally, if you are someone who does a lot of things at once — such as listening to music, downloading and browsing — the CPU inside the LeEco model will be better for you irrespective of scores.

Similarly, some applications like Google Chrome and certain games are very good at taking advantage of multiple cores and the single-core advantage of the Note will be nullified in such cases.

On the other hand, the Xiaomi model will definitely feel faster when you are launching the first application after turning on the phone.

Still the expected price difference of Rs 6,000 for the 32 GB versions make the model difficult to recommend, especially given that LeEco is shipping a huge number of its phones to India and managing to substantially meet demand.

The phone has already around 6 lakh registrations for purchase — the highest ever for any phone in India. The earlier records were in the range of 2.5-3.0 lakh registrations. Moreover, user reviews for the phone have been very encouraging.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi has just finished mailing a set of 100 Notes for testing to selected Indian fans under a pilot program, which means that the phone’s launch date will be around Feb 15 and actual availability will be around Feb 22 or so.
