Although we know that benchmark tests only tell part of the story, we still rely on them for our initial impressions about the device. This is why manufacturers tend to make sure that their phones do well in such tests, to ensure that the phone meets a certain level of customer expectations. Recently, Vernee released a hands-on video of the Vernee Thor. The video also showed the phone’s first AnTuTu benchmark test and the scores are pretty good.
According to the video released, Vernee Thor scores a good 38,347 in the AnTuTu benchmark test, which is the highest we have seen among other MT6753 powered smartphones. Given that there are numerous phones in the market with this MTK chipset, it looks like Vernee has done a good job optimizing its performance. Of course, as compared to other phones, this isn’t much, 38K+ on a $100 device is definitely impressive.
The phone is already in the pre-sale stage and is currently available at $119.99. On some websites, the price is even lower, at $99.99 which is a steal for the specs you get.
