xiaomi Mi4 vs Huawei Honor 5 vs OnePlus One Antutu V5 Benchmarks

3 of the best compete head to head in a benchmark war but who will win? The all new Xiaomi Mi4, the surpassing Huawei Honor 6 or the OnePlus One?

Try launching a smartphone in China and not have every single detail from it splashed around the web in less than 24 hours. It’s something every Chinese manufacturer has to carefully prepare for, especially when there are worthy rivals waiting in the ranks.

The Xiaomi Mi4 hasn’t even been released to buy yet, but someone has managed to run all the most important benchmarks on the phone, and better still compare the new Mi phone to the Huawei Glory 6 and the OnePlus One.

In China each of these phones costs from just 1999 Yuan ($320), and each boast killer features for that low price. If you were to use one of the other you would find them each to be fast and dependable, but there can be only one winner in a Benchmarks war!

Just a word on the test. The OnePlus One is the Chinese version running ColorOS (but in our tests it makes very little difference the the benchmarks over CM11S), the Mi4 is a pre-release phone and the Huawei is the only one of the 3 not to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Xiaomi Mi4 vs Huawei Honor 5 vs OnePlus One – Result

In Antutu the really surprise is that Huawei Honor 6 and it’s Kirin 920 processor. It is quite shocking to see the Huawei machine (and Huawei chip) out perform the OnePlus One and keep up with the Xiaomi Mi4.

The same cannot be said about 3D Mark where the Huawei’s Mali 628 GPU simply cannot match the output of the Adreno 330 CPU.

From these benchmarks we can conclude that the Huawei Honor 6 comes 3rd, the OnePlus One a solid 2nd and the Xiaomi Mi4 shines though to take the win. Not only does the Mi4 do better in Antutu than the other phones, but it has solid and stable GPU performance too.

In real life usage the OPO and Mi4 are going to be hard to tell apart and both are going to be fast dependable gamers and daily phones. The Huawei Honor 6 is also a fast device and for usual use you won’t see an issue, and in reality most current games aren’t going to stress the Kirin CPU too much.

Our take, which ever you choose you are going to have a great phone, and with prices like this you won’t have to save up long to choose the next flagship that takes your fancy.

Is this what you expected from the benchmarks? Did one phone perform better than you had expected? Let us know in the comments below.

    The difference between v4 and v5 is much. Why that much improvement on performance of devices? MI4 was always going to be good.

      What is the position re use in UK/Europe and USA, I am in UK with 800 on o2

  • deep zpain

    I think Xiaomi has potential to throw Samsung from Top Android mob company in next 2years.

    • Qwerty

      You’re the dumbest person I’ve ever read a comment from.

      • deep zpain

        Why? worldwide, the MI-3 and Redmi have been ranked inside the Top 10 best selling smartphones by one market research firm in February

        • Allanitomwesh

          Because their distribution and product line variety simply cannot match Samsung in only two years. They sell well,but they only made the list because a majority of the world population is in asia. Samsung will always recover the difference with US and Europe.

          • Airyl

            Considering how they ONLY sell their phones in Asia, I don’t see how it’s impossible. They’re sales should increase considerably once they enter different markets.

            • Allanitomwesh

              My point remains.
              1.there is no way they can expand to US .Europe,The middle East and Africa in 2 Years.
              2. There is no way they will start shipping 30 million units in 2 years,more for the budget phones too (like Hongmi)

            • Sarthak Parikh

              And there is no way u have any tech knowledge ,hahah

            • Allanitomwesh

              I’d reply to you on just how much tech knowledge i have but then I’d be entertaining your stupidity

      • Sarthak Parikh

        you’re also

    • Usman

      I agree with your comment

    • Cyber Revengeance

      only if they are able to supply enough phones at time. Now they are out of stock.

    The Huawei may come in third in your overall rankings but for practical purposes it surpasses both the One Plus and Mi4. First it’s dual sim, second it has an sd slot and most importantly it has a huge 3000mah battery for a 5 inch phone. It deserves to be compared to other dual sim phones as like for like. But, again, it smokes the other two in real world terms.

    • Faux-News

      Its the slimmest of all too, with 7.5mm thickness.

      • Airyl

        The Mi4 is 6.7mm thin.

        • Faux-News

          From what i read, Mi4 is 8.9mm

          • Airyl

            Really? I just double checked through a few websites, pretty sure that it’s 6.7mm.

            • Faux-News

              Mi.com and Xiaomiworld.com both show 8.9mm for example.

            • Airyl

              Well darn. Thanks!

    • Airyl

      Mi4 has a 3080mAh battery with a 5 inch display, and it’s thinner. Just saying the facts here, not disagreeing in any manner.

      • TheOracle

        Is it dual sim and does it have an sd slot? No.

        • Airyl

          When did I say it’s better? Did you even read my comment?

          • TheOracle

            You pointed out two features they both have and I re-emphasized two features only the Huawei has. Nothing more. The whole comparison is apples to oranges anyway. The honor 6 can only be fairly compared to other high spec dual sim phones and on that criteria it obliterates the competition especially price wise.

            • Airyl

              You clearly said “and most importantly it has a huge 3000mah battery for a 5 inch phone,”. This is good, yes but it’s not exactly an advantage since the competition has outperformed it. Once again, did you even read my comment?

            • TheOracle

              I read your comment and replied appropriately. Here are some facts that you seem to have conveniently overlooked since you’re a Mi3 owner and Xiaomi fanboy. The Mi4 is 8.9mm vs 7.5mm for the huawei, the huawei has a slightly bigger battery (3100 vs 3080) and the huawei is DSFA with an sd slot. Again it should only be compared to other DSFA phones like the K920, HTC e8, S5 dual sim etc. I have a k910 that’s great and it was the best dual sim available specs wise before the Honor 6 came out. The K920 may be even better but based on what I’ve heard so far I’d still prefer the Honor 6 and I’m a Lenovo fanboy.

            • Airyl

              Dude, you never read my comment. I clearly said “Just saying the facts here, not disagreeing in any manner,”. I was never even saying the Mi4 was better, I was agreeing with you. I was just pointing out that you got some facts wrong in your comment. Seriously dude, what the hell?

            • TheOracle

              I didn’t get any facts wrong “dude”. I simply stated what the honor 6 has. On the other hand, you have mistated the thickness of the Mi4 in another post. Again, the phones aren’t comparable and it’s a testament to how good the huawei is that it’s in the Flagship debate as it’s dual sim. Give it a rest “dude”, I’m sure many people will buy the Mi4. I just won’t be one of them because it doesn’t have an sd slot and isn’t dual sim.

            • Airyl

              I know they’re incomparable. I was just misinformed about the thickness. Anyway, this is going nowhere. How about we bury the hatchet and forget about this?

            • TheOracle

              Hatchet buried.

            • Sarthak Parikh

              with two sim slots and a memory card slot makes a phone best then i have a phone that has both and it costs only 50$ haha

  • Usman

    Andi whats going one, at first you mentioned a score of 37000 from mi4, and now 44000, which is real?

    • oc

      Who cares?

      The Mediatek MT6595 wipes them all. At 1/3 of the cost.

      The latest thing from Xiaomioii or whatever it’s called is another crappy iPhonesque overpriced crap. 5 inches for me is like 3,5 inches for iPhone5 users, you know, crap. A FHD resolution is what it had my Zopo C2. So the Antutu scores are poor.

      A QHD 5.5 inch screen with Mediatek 6595 chipset will be my next phone, so of this phone grows up to this specs, and maintains its build quality while keeping costs down under 299$, then they will take my money.

      Until then, I don’t even consider losing time watching it.

      • Faux-News

        Have to disagree. 5inches is a big relief for many users who dont want a big slab in the pocket and don’t want the phone to be used with two hands.

        A phone with the MTK chip would be unveiled by next year by which time competitors would be on 64bit chips.

        • oc

          You can’t be more wrong.

          The one that will be SHIPPED next year is the 64bit MT6795.

          The MT6595 will be shipping NEXT MONTH.

          Get a cave and lock the door…Troll.

          • Airyl

            Considering that the MTK6595 uses the same GPU as the Honor 6, I highly doubt it can best the Snapdragon devices. Maybe in Antutu it’ll keep up, but GPU tests will show that it’s not as fast.

      • insane

        I have to disagree.. cause u have to consider the support of Goole to Mediatek chips, drivers for Android and so on… Better choice is still Qualcomm. BTW Antutu isn’t worth of testing.. scores can be diffrent in every single benchmark from 3k to even 10k points !

      • Sarthak Parikh

        Your big and low cost MTK 6595 can’t handle a qhd screen

      • Kawaii Kurumi

        Fact one Mediatek is shitty, they have low end processors, considering the Helio X10, the CPU power is good, but then the GPU really holds it back from the performance. The thing is that when a company embeds a processors they need to look at all sides, and weather or not it will sell or not, most people would go and throw there money on a phone and then it would go to waste(especially companies like samsung tend to do this) Currently my favourite processors are Qualcom and Hi Silicon, because they are budget and they tend to work really nice with very less lag

    • It depends on the Version of Antutu, also this new score is prob using MUI V6 the last one MIUI V5

      • TheOracle

        Andi, you should do a comparison between the HTC one E8, K920, S5 dual sim and Honor 6. That would be fair and show the great value of the Huawei.

  • Zami

    There is an another issue and that is the capability to meet the demand of the consumers .
    I think Huawei has the upper hand there .

  • monoreviews

    My oneplus gets 39k in antutu v4 latest.

  • tom edison

    Xiaomi mi 4 is like chinese apple, haha, i already bought it at http://goo.gl/E7qOpO

  • Arun Das

    Xiaomi is a flagship phone whereas Honor 6 is a Mid range phone . Let us forget about One Plus because only the lucky few will get it. Honor 6 will be available from Oct 6 through Flipkart. May be thats because of limited stock. One thing to keep in mind is that Honor 6 has hot swappable micro SD card and sim card. You dont have to open the back cover to insert them. I doubt whether Mi4 has expandable memory slot. Another surprising thing is antutu benchmark of Kirin 920 processor . Above 41000 mark? Kirin 910 could hardly surpass 25000 mark.

  • Prashant Annamalai

    This is weird. I’ll tell you what, my oneplus one has an Antutu benchmark for my OnePlus One was 47000 something. The experimented OPO must be defective or fake… OPO always wins over Xiaomi. Except camera. OPO camera takes grainy pictures in low light…

    • Kawaii Kurumi

      Huawei Honor 6, Bechmark score is 50000 Beats the OPO as well as the Xiamoi by miles when it comes to GFX. The only thing holding back the phone is EMUI, if there was Cynagoen like the OPO did then it would have even better score. Another fact is that the Snapdragon processors tend to heat up quicly while the Kirin Processors always stay cool(Except under gaming load)

  • Kawaii Kurumi

    There is a mistake in the article where he has used Honor 5 should be Honor 6, and next thing is that MI (Now im saying this from experience got 2 devices at my house)
    Has a very Laggy and Slow UI, whilist the Huawei Honor series has EMUI which is much better because it is being invented and tested in another different part of the company, the Honor 5X does have a laggy UI and that is because they have embedded a Snapdragon 615 (I think) without going with there Hi Silicon, I have no reason to say that Honor 6 is bad except for the fact that its battery life might be a little below average but lasts long enough for the day(this is with Wifi, Mobile data, GPS, Auto Sync, Auto-rotate switched on at all times) But nevertheless i am considering buying the latest One Plus (whatever number) in the coming future. But if gaming isn’t your main aspect then consider the Huawei Honor series as it is much better and worth it for your money and Huawei Has been dealing with Networking For a long time. If anyone is wondering what the 2 MI devices i have at home are, they are the Mi Pad (The V1) and Xiamoi Redmi Prime both running Mui 7
