Nokia X Benchmark Test Scores – AnTuTu, Quadrant Standard & Nenamark II

The Nokia X is not a powerful device, and this is a known fact, thanks to the dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor along with 512MB of RAM and Adreno 203 GPU, but has Nokia tried to optimize it and make it faster in any way? We did a few standard benchmark tests on the device to see how it fares against the other mid-range to high-end smartphones. As the Nokia X runs the Android-based Nokia X platform, it wasn’t hard to find and install these benchmark apps (check Nokia X Android App sideloading guide to learn how you can do it), and then the tests gave pretty decent results, not lesser than or exceeding the expectations one would have for this internal configuration.

Before getting into the scoring, let me give you some brief info about the internal hardware of Nokia X.

  • Processor: 1 GHz Dual-core, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8625Q chipset
  • RAM: 512MB
  • GPU: Adreno 203
  • OS: Nokia X (based on Android 4.1.2)

AnTuTu Benchmark
This test got the scoring of 7669 points, and that is quite low, even below the Samsung Galaxy S2, which was launched three years back. The scoring got less especially because of the low graphics performance and the limited RAM.

Quadrant Standard
We were happy to see that at least the scoring here was not shameful. When compared to the standard scores given by Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Atrix 4G, the Nokia X fared better with a score of 3020 which was decent enough, considering the parameters which this app takes into consideration.

Nenamark II
This was the final test we did, and this was to check out the graphics performance based on the frames per second output for the high quality graphics content. The score here was 32 fps, an average after trying out the test for three times. It’s again not really bad, considering the various factors.

Nokia X Nenamark II

The AnTuTu benchmark is where the device doesn’t impress at all, but with the Quadrant Standard and Nenamark II, the scoring was quite enough to justify the pricing and the internal configuration of the Nokia X.

    Nokia X seems to be an entry level phone, we shouldn’t compare it with HTC One, Xperia Z and the likes. I would look at it as an upgrade to users who use basic Android phones like Galaxy Y, HTC Explorer, Galaxy Star.

      We surely didn’t compare with the high-end devices, but the pricing doesn’t really match the Galaxy Y (which ofcourse now is out of availability in market) and the Galaxy Star. Nokia has brought this into a mid-range pricing and thus should have justified it with the good performance.
