Sony unveiled its flagship device, Sony Xperia Z1, earlier this week at IFA 2013 in Berlin. The device brings top of the line specifications and is considered the “Best of Sony” by the company itself. After its launch, the folks at PhoneArena managed to run a number of benchmark tests, including Quadrant, AnTuTu, GFXBench and Vellamo, on the preview unit to check the capabilities of the new device.
The device managed to generate some decent numbers, but I was expecting way more from the Sony Xperia Z1. The device managed to get 14,835 on Quadrant, 17,148 on AnTuTu, 46 on GFXBench and 991 on Vellamo. The results show low numbers in my opinion as the device brings top of the line specifications.
LG G2 gave some decent numbers in all the tests and it’s powered by the Snapdragon 800 as well. LG G2 scored almost 22,000 on AnTuTu and 16,000 on Quadrant, which is way higher then Sony Xperia Z1. But one should not draw conclusions based on these numbers as you cannot judge the performance just by running synthetic benchmarks.
Sony Xperia Z1 features a Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB RAM, 5-inch display with a 1080p resolution, 20 megapixel camera with G Lens technology, 16GB internal storage with a microSD card slot, 3,000 mAh battery and runs Android 4.2.2 on top of it. The device is expected to hit the shelves by the end of this month.
These results might differ from the retail unit so just don’t put your entire faith on these numbers. Sony Xperia Z1 seems to be a very impressive device.
