Asus PadFone X Review: Like No Other: Performance

By 10:32 Sat, 14 Aug 2021 Comments


Synthetic benchmarks

The Asus PadFone X is powered by a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2.3Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core Krait 400 CPU. The GPU is Adreno 330, while 2 gigs of Random-Access Memory (RAM) ensure smooth operation at all times.

The PadFone X doesn't feature the latest elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC as most of the high-discontinue Android devices do these days, but this is hardly a deal breaker in our book. After all, the 801 is essentially a version of the Snapdragon 800 with slightly higher GPU and memory frequencies.

GeekBench 3 and AnTuTu 4 are all-round benchmarks that test the entirety of the hardware build. The Asus PadFone X posted flagship-worthy results on both occasions.

Baseimprint X is designed to put the Adreno 330 GPU to the test by throwing a heavy load of graphics to render. The PadFone X bested the likes of LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy S5, and came slightly short from topping the HTC One (M8).

Things change considerably in the anti-cheat version of the benchmark. On this instance, the PadFone X didn't post such impressive numbers and came in last among the other high-discontinue devices we tested.
