    Im kindof surprised the 6582 produces exact the same antutu results with a 720p screen then with a qhd screen like my onn v8 star for instance. gps seems to work fine with this processor and the psp emu runs as fluent on this as it does on a rk3188 based tablet with 2 gig ram. kindof impressive.

      Probably a case of better software optimization from Huawei?
      And that’s very impressive. Hoping to get my first MT6582 phone in the next few days!

    why not the MT6588 for the model “C” and the MT6592/95 for the model “X”?

    I smell rigged benchmark scores… companies have been known to do this so I’m not so sure this isn’t the case here.
