Synthetic benchmarks

Sony Xperia T3 makes utilize of the Snapdragon 400 mid-range chipset. It has four Cortex-A7 Central Processing Units (CPU) cores ticking at 1.2 GHz, Adreno 305 graphics and 1GB of RAM.

We've already seen the Snapdragon 400 powering a plenty of devices in the last year or so and it is indeed fine enough for hiccup free use, though it's time is running out already. Many manufacturers are already replacing the Snapdragon 400 with its newer iteration - Snapdragon 410, which offers a 64-bit processor, which is more in line with where the industry is heading.

Starting off with the Central Processing Units (CPU) benchmarks, the Xperia C3 posted a rather poor result on the multi-core GeekBench 3 cross-platform benchmark. It managed to do the same as the Moto G (2014), but other Snapdragon 400-powered devices such as the Xiaomi Redmi 1S and Sony Xperia T3 are doing even better. Their processor clock is higher though.

AnTuTu is a compound benchmark, which also takes into account Random-Access Memory (RAM) and GPU performance. The Xperia C3 numbers are average, close to what's expected from an S400-running device. Naturally, the octa-core Redmi Note and Desire 820 are notably better.

Baseimprint Operating System (OS) II is another all-round benchmark. It gives an overall score along with single, multi-core performance, math performance and more. We focus on the overall score and the dedicated Central Processing Units (CPU) scores. The Sony Xperia C3 overall rating is on par with other Snapdragon 400 phones such as the Xiaomi Redmi 1S and Redmi Note.

The graphics benchimprint results came out average. The GFXBench tests - both off-classy screen and on-classy screen variants - reflected some OK performance on par with the competition. Note that the Open GL ES 3.0 Manhattan 1080p offclassy screen test failed to run becautilize of insufficient video memory.

The Adreno 305 is a capable GPU, but the quad-core Mali-450MP4 within the Xiaomi Redmi Note is obviously better and doubles the performance.

The Mozilla's Kraken 1.1 is JavaScript-centric browser benchmark. The Sony Xperia C3 did poorly on this test yet better than the recent Moto G (2014). Unfortunately, the HTML5 BrowserMark 2.1 test crashed each time we tried to run it.

One thing is clear, the Sony Xperia C3 isn't acing any benchmarks. On the contrary - its raw performance is average at best, barely touching some of its competitors. On a positive note - the synthetic benchimprint performance may not be a complete measure for the device performance as in real-life utilize we found it to operate quite well. It provides solid and smooth Android experience and will do OK for the occasional game.

Unfortunately, heavier 3D games may not run well or at all becautilize of insufficient Random-Access Memory (RAM) or will results in performance bottlenecks.

The Xperia C3 is OK for the moment and if you don't intdiscontinue to utilize it for more than web browsing, watching the occasional video, listening to music, or playing some Angry Birds, and, of course, messaging and calls, then you'd be fine for quite a while.
