THL T100S, 8-core MT6592 Antutu Benchmarks


Now that we are recovering from the Turkey and presents it’s back to work on testing some of the latest 8-core Chinese phones. First up is a quick look at the THL T100S Antutu benchmarks.

The THL T100S, aka the Monkey King 2, is one of the most anticipated 8-core Chinese phones of the year. The phone boasts a 1.7Ghz MT6592 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB memory, 13 mega-pixel rear front and rear cameras and an f2.0 aperture on the main shooter! In short it’s a feature packed device and all wrapped up in a high-tech, Sony Xperia-esq design.

We have already posted our initial thoughts of the THL T100S, along with a short comparision with it’s rival the Zopo ZP998, but while we work away on the full THL T100S review have decided to post an update by way of Antutu benchamarks!

THL T100S Antutu

thl t100s antutu

With an 8-core 1.7Ghz processor on board and 2GB RAM we had high hopes for the THL T100S and we aren’t disapointed! Running Antutu on our review phone we managed an average score of well over 26,000 points! With a bit of optimisation we could well see 27,000 or more from the flagship THL!

For our full THL T100S review we will post more benchmarks, but in reality you can probably determine that they will also be exceptionally high too.

Thanks again to Antelife for sending over our THL T100S for review.

    This is not the MK2 it is the Iron Man. MK2 is the updated W11.

    Were you using Antutu X? If not then please do and give us the Antutu X results!

      This. I think all Antutu results nowadays should be done using Antutu X, and I don’t mean just Chinese manufacturers, but also big names such as HTC, Samsung and LG as well.

      Also, Android Authority has already posted a full review of this, and the benchmarks indeed look fantastic. And the even better news is, GPS seems to lock really fast!! Can’t wait until GizChina has posted the full review 🙂

        If that’s true about the GPS then I will definately get one. At the moment I am tossing up whether or not to upgrade but more accurate GPS would be enough to convince me

        The gps working fine! This is a Wonder!
        The only thing that discourages me is that the T100 does not have Gorilla Glass.

    What I’m really waiting for is Mediatek to sort out KitKat support, especially for the slightly older chipsets! My mtk6589 powered thl W8s wants a taste of KitKat 🙂

    Can you investigate? Cheers

      Don’t hold your breath for Kit Kat support anytime soon. Most reports say the earliest Kit Kat will be available to the masses is July. Even so the Chinese market at a whole moves at such a fast pace that support for older devices is often lackluster. I would not be entirely surprised if we don’t see wide spread Kit Kat until next year’s flagship’s are released.

    TCL Idol X+ is way better than ThL i am sure…
    In all possible ways TCL beats ThL out of the box be it the design, be it the compactness or the Antutu scores…
    I am just waiting january 15th to come….
    I am already saving for it….
    what do you guys think about TCL ? or you still want to buy ThL only ?

    • Nahúm Pérez Mesa
      December 28, 2013

      for me the TCL is PERFECT! the ThL model is just so good but the GPU frequency at 2Ghz for the TCL model is just amazing, and the dimensions for the ThL are too big for a 5″ phone, but in other way the TCL is finner, For me TCL

      Tcl idol x+ is probably the most boring looking phone in the world… I am going for thl t100 as soon as the mt6595 version is available.

        Ha Ha…. compare both side by side if you get an opportunity. or atleast with pics & specs…
        TCL wins over ThL in more than 50% + points…
        I must appreciate you have a great taste if you still say ThL design is way better than TCL…

        • highwind
          December 31, 2013

          I did compare both and I dont see the TCL winning anything…

          much better design + exchangeable battery + SD-card slot is just much more important to me than lousy 300MHz + pseudo-compact housing (pseudo because it is only a trade off achieved by NOT offering exchangeable battery and SD-card slot)

          Also:
          THL offers stock android while TCL has some kind of TouchWiz-lookalike UI which I really dislike

    at the beginning of the year this would have been the best phone out there… today though, it is just mediocre. What a difference a year makes!
