ZTE Axon Elite benchmarks are impressive

Strong benchmarks for the ZTE Axon Elite reveal a very capable flagship killer that won’t break the bank.

We’ve been putting the newly announced ZTE Axon Elite through its paces this past week and one thing that has stood out above all else is performance. With a Snapdragon 810 and 3GB RAM, it’s almost on the same level as top-ranking handsets such as the OnePlus 2. Our Geekbench 3 results showed a strong average score over 5 tests, with an average multi-core score of 4624 and an average single-score of 1300. To put this into perspective, we’ve created a graph below putting it against two close competitors:

As you can see from the results, it actually beats both devices on single-core performance and only narrowly misses the top spot in the multi-core test. On the AnTuTu test it’s a little less impressive, with the Samsung Galaxy S6 still reigning supreme and the OnePlus 2 only slightly behind. Still, this is definitely a very powerful budget handset. Look forward to our full review very soon…
