4.5-inch, quad-core Changhong ZS3 scores over 15,000 on Antutu!

Even with all the 5-inch 1080 phones heading to stores, there are many Android phone fans who are happy with a 4.5-inch display, and quad-core CPU. With limited options it’s nice to see the Changhong ZS3 has arrived to offer extra choice.

The original Changhong ZS3 sported a dual-core MT6577 chip and generous 3200mAh battery beneath a 4.5-inch OGS, laminated 960 x 540 display. The combination of dual-core, low resolution and large battery resulted in a phone capable of 400 hour stand-by!

For 2013, the ZS3 is going to receive an upgraded to include a quad-core MT6589 processor, we also suspect that RAM will be increased to a more suitable 1GB too. Full details haven’t been announced, but according to leaked Antutu benchmarks, the quad-core ZS3 is one powerful phone!

Gizchina News of the week

changhong zs3 antutu

We’ve seen a few MT6589 phones with 1GB RAM achieve Antutu benchmarks of almost 13,000, however this is the first we have seen break the 15,000 mark! Best of all is that battery life hasn’t been affected too much due to the quad-core’s more efficient behaviour!

If only the Changhong ZS3 had a 720HD display and it would make for a nice alternative to the Xiaomi Mi2!

    IMHO, with higher 720P display, ZS3 antutu score won’t reach 15K instead ranging 12-13K

    Yeah …… another MORONLY made photoshopped picture, actually I’ll be able to put the “1” from the left side of the “5” better on MS Paint 😀 😀 😀 …. and the other thing is that MT6589 is UNABLE to make over 10500 points on that version of AnTuTu v2.9.3. People, lets thing realistic. This is a 1000% FAKE !!!

    Yep, version used is an old one. Antutu came out with their latest version to prevent tampering of the scores. I don’t think this Mediatek CPU can score higher than 12000. Let’s see them use the new version. Can’t believe that it can be as fast as the S3. I can only get 15100 without any tweaks.

    Qhd resolution makes the diffrence. Low res = more pioints in 3d & 2d section.

    Still worth a punt, as not everyone wants HD, and would gladly trade resolution for battery, especially if Antutu, can be in the ballpark.
