Smartphones Ranked by Quadrant & Antutu Scores

We’ve had over a dozen high-end phones reviewed and tested in the last couple of months, including the yet-to-be-released Samsung Galaxy S4. We gathered a lot of them and ranked each one based on their Quadrant and Antutu Benchmark scores.

Take note that all but one of the smartphones we included here have quad-core processors. Only the Motorola Razr i TX890 has a single Intel Atom processors while all the rest have either an NVidia Tegra 3, a Snapdragon S4 or Snapdragon 600, an Exynos4 and Exynos 5 chip as well as a custom Huawei K3V2 chip.

Here’s the chart showing all of them with their Quadrant scores:

Here’s the chart showing all of them with their Antutu scores:

The S4 maintained its lead in both benchmarks with its Snapdragon 600 chip. The Padfone 2, HTC Butterfly, Xperia Z and Optimus G all ranked close to each other with their Snapdragon S4 chip.

The Motorola Razr i XT890 fared really well despite its single-core processor, giving us an idea that number of cores does not generally translate to better performance.

* Note that scores from respective smartphones were taken during the time they were reviewed and as such, may have newer/better results (like the Galaxy S3 which was still on ICS when we made the review). We hope we can get an updated results from some of them that have newer firmwares and Android updates.

    My note 2 has an Antutu score of 18,205… noob cguro nag benchmark dito baka hindi pinatay yung background processess. … Note 2 should hover in the 17k – 18k territory. ….

      o nga, noob nga siguro yung person sa yugatech. Sobrang noob naman ng isang professional technology journalist. Napakanoob niya. Talino mo siguro. Napakacool mo naman.

      in quadrant, nexus 4 surpassed note 2, while on antutu its the other way around.

      what’s the reason?

    • lolwut says:

      IMO, most of the benchmarks were done when the phone was fresh from the box with no other extra apps other than the factory installed. If you are comparing the current state of your phone now would not generate an accurate score. If you’re really curious maybe you could reset the phone to factory defaults and perform the benchmarks.

    Lol naka power save ang S3 at Note 2 sa Antutu…HTC One X mas mataas pa Sa Nexus 4? Me Golly. … mali mali. Sinong lasheng gumawa ng benchmark?

    • ikaw na magaling says:

      ikaw na magaling. gawa ka sarili mong blog tapos post mo mga benchmark dun.

    • Grumphus says:

      If you look closely, it is the HTC One X+ which has a higher clocked processor (1.7 GHz) than the Nexus 4’s 1.5 GHz Krait

    Wheres Optimus G Pro and HTC One? iphone 5?
    masyado nmn pinahalata ung result di sinama main rivals.

    • abuzalzal says:

      Pang Android lang ang Antutu at Quadrant…. Di pwede ang iPhone brad…. I’m sure kung may universal benchmark app eh backmarker ang iPhone 5 sa mga latest Droid flagships

    • yuga says:

      We have not tested or review those Android phones.

  4. bijz says:

    i hope you can include battery life efficiency in all performance benchmarks. we want the most appropriate processor but with the longest battery!

    these are at STOCK ROMS with no Mods or Tweaks that boost performance so if some devices dont perform like you expected its because theyre working as they should normally

    • abuzalzal says:

      The law of averages suggests that something wasn’t done right in these benchmarks…The Nexus 4 has a more sophisticated gpu + cpu YET the Jurassic One X still beats it? ??….I’m running on a stock Rom and the Note 2 and the S3 arent supposed to exhibit such low scores (my S3 has a 16k score)

    • yuga says:

      @abuzalzal – the S3 review was done 10 months ago and was still running ICS, thus the low scores.

    • Anon says:

      According to a an article I read somewhere, the reason why some Nexus devices have lower benchmark scores is because they’re always using the latest Android version of which the benchmark tools aren’t fully compatible yet at the time of the test.

    Anyare sa Lenovo K900?

    Hi po sir Yuga,

    How would samsung phones with exynos par with Hyundai 3G T10 Quad Core. I’ve read they’re using Samsung Exynos as well. I hope you can do a review as well as quadrant and antutu scores for this one.

    Also, can you confirm if it really is the carmaker, Hyundai, manufacturing this tab? I’ve read it somewhere from a Russian site, I don’t remember though.

    I hope this tab will land in ph. This would be an awesome all-in-one tab for just 11+k.


    • rob says:

      well I think abe’s gonna be searching for Hyundai T10 exynos… I’ve heard it scored 15k in antutu.. not sure if its antutu… hopefully this will land in Ph… there is also some unknown level of integration in some Hyundai cars.. Aftetal, it’s a quality brand..

      Napakamura na tablet for an exynos CPU ah. I hope nga this will make it to the country. Di rin ako makapaniwala na Hyundai car-maker ay nag-invest na din sa tech gadgets.

  8. Selle says:

    Hi sir! Sorry di ako techie so what does scores in Quadrant and Antutu mean? And ano differennce ng 2? Thanks!!

    • lolwut says:

      They are benchmarking software, meaning they measure the capacity/capability of the system with regards to hardware versus OS operation. Pareho halos silang nakaka measure ng speeds ng CPU, RAM, Graphics at kung minsan battery life. The difference between the two are very minimal, meron lang mga geeks na gusto ang Quadrant kesa sa Antutu. So, ang mga scores na lumalabas dito eh basehan ng mga techies kung ang phone has better hardware specs and makakapagsabi na rin kung kakayanin nito ang intense operations like gaming and multi-tasking.

    It really is simple and stylish as opposed to the curvy designs of its peers.
    I’m not really impressed with the medium range bags.
