Sharp Aquos S2’s SD630 Antutu Score Floors The Helio P25

by Jed John 9

The Sharp Aquos S2 has just been launched and it came out as the first smartphone to feature Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 630 processor. If you think the SD 630 isn’t a chip to reckon with, you better think again. AnTuTu has released the benchmark score of the Snapdragon 630 SoC and it shows the processor has the potential of being a powerful mid-range 630

AnTuTu didn’t share the details of the phone on which the chip ran but in its Weibo post, it revealed that the Qualcomm chip scored an average of 69,000 points. Strikingly, this figure dwarfs the score of MediaTek’s latest mid-range Helio P25 chip which averages around 66,500 points on AnTuTu as seen on the Ulefone T1’s benchmark score.

    And the Snapdragon 650 still humillates the 630….

      Still love the SD650 in my Redmi Note 3 Pro…the Adreno 510 is perfect in a midrange phone

  • princetom

    And the s2 continues to nose dives… From sdm 835 to sdm 660 and now released with 630? Oh lawd

      Not quite, remember its PRICED like an SD835 phone, so that’s something at least!!

    I wasn’t aware that a 2500 point difference on Antutu was considered”floored.” I seem to recall 2500 point variations on the same SoC depending on hardware and software variations between devices.

    • Rob

      My thoughts exactly, the journalistic talents of the writers on here diminish with every passing day. This chip is clearly designed to compete with the P25 and clearly is benchmarking around the same. ‘Floored’ is clearly a term used by a QC fan boy.

        No one has argued against the fact that both chips are designed to compete against each other.But the result shows some prospect of the SD 630 getting some more firepower than its MTK contemporary. Of course, posterity will judge which of them is more powerful because one will surely be superior, mildly or otherwise.

      I was about to say the same thing. Gizmo is going down by the same road as gizchina.

    From 660 to 630? Is a suicide.

    A 660 at least has 820 performance and that is the saving grace and it will be interesting.
