Xiaomi Redmi 3 Review: Precious Little One: Performance

Performance

Xiaomi Redmi 3 is the first smartphone we meet powered by the Snapdragon 616 chipset. The recent SoC offers eight Cortex-A53 cores, four of them ticking at 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) and another four running at 1.2GHz. The GPU in charge of graphics is Adreno 405 while the available Random-Access Memory (RAM) is 2GB.


The 616 model isn't just a minor step from the 615 flavor, but it will undoubtedly provide more than enough power for the Redmi 3 as it is running everything on the undemanding 720p resolution.

The multi-core performance as shown by GeekBench 3 is nothing to brag about, but it doubles the processing power of its predecessor and is on par with any other affordable octa-core Cortex-A53 Central Processing Units (CPU) (the Meizu's smartphones). It also does almost the same as the S616-powered Oppo F1, which costs twice as much.

The compound AnTuTu 5 oddly outs a lesser result as in comparison with the Oppo F1, but it's still about on the average, and that's more than enough. Plus, notice the jump from the Redmi 2.

The compound BaseMark Operating System (OS) II 2.0 once again puts the Oppo F1 ahead of the Redmi 3, maybe becautilize of the Oppo F1's 3GB of RAM. Still it does better than the Meizu's notes and not that far from the Helio X10 performance of the Redmi Note 3, which is great.

The single-core performance of a Cortex-A53 may not be much to write home about, but that's why the Redmi 3 has eight of those.

Finally, the Adreno 405 can perfectly handle any 720p content you throw at it, and that's noticeable in the GFX 3.0 on-classy screen benchmark.

The 1080p Offclassy screen test results, o the other hand, can show you how the chipset stacks against the competition as far as the raw GPU performance is concerned.

Xiaomi's Redmi 3 is one beautifully designed smartphone with an excellent classy screen and quite a powerful chipset. It may cost very cheap, but offers power you'd usually acquire for twice as much. Only OpenGL 3.1 compatibility is missing for rendering high-discontinue mobile graphics, but then again we'd refer to the price - it's not a gaming phone after all.
