The CPU & Antutu benchmarks are kind of disappointing. After all that hype and boasting (5.5 billion transistors and all), people were expecting more. But the benchmarks are more or less similar to the the performance of flagships with SD 835/Exynos 8895 that was made available early this year. And let's forget about even challenging Apple.
And with SD 845 & the next Exynos expected to provide a bigger jump within a few months, the Kirin 970 of the Mate 10 and the upcoming P11 series will be left in the dust.
Anyways, the good take-away is that the GPU performance is stellar, much better than some of the 2017 flagships. And this is because the Mali G72 delivered on it's promises, improving upon the excellent G71. All this makes me more excited for the next flagship Exynos.
Cpt. Power, 18 Oct 2017Man i was one of them. Just for your information. Kirin 970 have 5 pins in other words in like... moreI was talking about raw performance.
I know most 2017 android phones have better and much faster charging speeds than iPhones (3 hrs+ from 0-100% is just unacceptable)
kaz, 18 Oct 2017are you dumb? It's a pre release unit and who said that benchmark is parameter of capability??... moreIn terms of raw performance?
No phone can beat iPhone and that's a fact.
The reason why IPhones are "" slow"" In speed test is because of animation speed.
Do a comparison between iPhone 8 and note 8 after 2 years and see who wins then.
Well, basically a quite well done to Huawei. Significant power, etc.
ZloiYuri, 17 Oct 2017OnePlus have to be removed from any comparing. They cheated but you still put here fake cheate... moreMan stop cry that 500 eur device is as good as 1000 eur device because its real its not acheat. Even MI6 for 400 eur is as good as Note 8.
Flossy420, 17 Oct 2017Where are those who said kirin 970 will beat the A11 chip?
I bet you look stupid right now wi... moreMan i was one of them. Just for your information. Kirin 970 have 5 pins in other words in like 20 mins a phone can charge like 60% of battery from zero to 100%.
Where Apple X or Iphone 8 plus after 20 mins gets maybe 10-15% of battery.
Another difference is Mate 10 have like 1,5x bigger battery than Iphone.
And Kirin 970 consume much less battery than a kirin 960.
With its 5 pins in like 40 mins your phone get full battery while Apple 8 plus after 90 mins will still charging. Thats enough to say for stupid comments.
Vegetaholic, 18 Oct 2017Of course it's not, but if you ask Apple they will just laugh, A11 shows what mobile chipset c... morethat is not true, their chips are better but came out more than half a year after samsung and qualy's chips, both of their next flagship chips will smoke apple and apple will smoke them again after 7 months, it's the same every year
so they caught up to Qualcomm and Samsung after their chips being on the market for more than half a year, good job lol

It's just those companies are really way behind in chipset game and there is a lot of improvement has to be done on their part
XtremE16, 17 Oct 2017Lol no one beat snapdragon processor in android department.. Still waiting for sd 845 beat for... moreThere is 0 chance 845 will beat A11 with single score hoovering on around 2000 on geekbench it is really no chance to make it score 4000 in one year time, same with multicore, a11 at least will be unbeaten for another 2-3 years unless Qualcomm will start to do something about it fast
Vegetaholic, 18 Oct 2017Well expected results, I was bashing this chip because of slow gpu, looks like I underestimate... moreI've tried Huawei in my life. the fact that it doesn't have the "Oomph" you're looking for doesn't mean it's a bad chipset. sure. comparing TO OTHER GPUS it's not the best. that I agree with you. but they are testing their grounds to find what is the perfect balance between excellent CPU Prowess, amazing battery life and impressive GPU. and it's not as easy as you may think.
XtremE16, 17 Oct 2017Lol no one beat snapdragon processor in android department.. Still waiting for sd 845 beat for... morehow do you know it will beat the A11Bionic? DON'T give me the crap of jumping frogs. achieving over 10k points in multiscore is amazing. and trust me that I am a die-hard android user. I internally suspect that the SD845 will get about 9.5k but it's just me... we'll wait and see.
Well expected results, I was bashing this chip because of slow gpu, looks like I underestimated little bit and look very promising on old Manhattan test until I seen results of car chase seen and basemark x, which was lower than 8895 g71mp20, which I expected To be much faster than g72mp12. So g71mp20 it is faster after all, but just by not much. Considering Kirin 970 is half year is younger than competition I will stick to my point, that Kirin is let down chipset, and Huawei should try harder to put more power and not concentrate on some ludicrous AI computation on chip, which on SOC is as good as 8k res on 3 inch screen.
Flossy420, 17 Oct 2017Where are those who said kirin 970 will beat the A11 chip? I bet you look stupid right now wi... moreare you dumb? It's a pre release unit and who said that benchmark is parameter of capability?? It's just a sign that device is powerful or not. Pixel 2 series and mate 10 series can easily beat iPhone 8 in performance test. IPhone is only for benchmark and some very heavy games. Others destroy iPhone in everything other segment.
MickyFoley, 17 Oct 2017Hate to say it, but for half the price, OnePlus kicks the Mate 10 Pro really hard out of compe... more1. op benchmarks are fake
2. Benchmarks are not the real reflectors of performance. Even honor 8 pro beats last year's iPhone 7 which had fantastic benchmark scores. Ask gsmarena if benchmarks really reflect real capability of a device. You will get one answer - "NO Absolutely Not"
Crispypeddler, 17 Oct 2017Incoming users says benchmark doesnt mean anything. when their device on top, they will say it... moreonly apple and mid-range mi fans shout about benchmarks in their respective segments, and result? LOL! This is a pre release unit, so after minor optimisation it can definitely work better. Real world performance and long lasting capability is what most important and there, even honor 8 pro defeated last year's iPhone 7. IPhone is only good in benchmark and games, in all others, other biggies are much ahead
Zenodroid, 17 Oct 2017The p10 plus with 960 can follow up with the 835 in everything I give it. So it sounds like yo... moreyou are correct. The fact is, benchmark is only a pinch of salt. It's NOT the parameter of real capability. It's a pre release unit, so it can perform better in selling units and also this AI chip will remain in the same speed even after 18 months. So it's clear that This Kirin 970 is best in the business
