ECOO E04 Aurora gets over 40,000 points in Antutu


ecoo e04

Mediatek are on a roll with their 64bit chips and this is benefiting low-cost phone makers such as ECOO who have posted a score of over 40,000 points for their Ecoo E04 Aurora.

The Ecoo E04 is on presale now, and will cost $210 once it is in stock and on sale internationally. There is a lot of competition at this price, so Ecoo have loaded their phone with a 3000mAh battery, 2GB RAM, 64bit MT6752 processor, 5.5-inch FHD display and even a fingerprint scanner on the front.

With those specifications the Ecoo E04 is on par with the JiaYu S3, Elephone P7000 and the iOcean M6752 Rock (at least on paper).

We have already seen some impressive benchmarks from some of the other MT6752 phones over the past weeks, and now Ecoo are in on the action to with a score of 40,199 on Antutu. The score is really very good, but what we would like to see are some other results from Geekbench, GFXbench, Vellamo etc to see how well optimised the Ecoo ROM is and how it really compares to rival phones.

    Yep a lot of important missing sensors and with still big price this phone has.
    Here are the missing sensors:
    No G-sensor
    No Gyro
    No Linear Accereration
    No Rotation Vector
    So why is it still this highly overpriced ?
    Jiayu is more complete!

    Like most of the buyers will do, first buy, then complain!

      According to the official website Ecoo Aurora has:

      Light-sensor
      Proximity sensor
      G-sensor

      And maybe other things too, they don’t seem to give out a lot of details.

      EDIT 25-02-2015: I have the phone now and it has all of these sensors

        You can confirm, for sure, that the ECOO 04 has Gyroscope sensor? It´s that I saw a information of antutu that says that he do not have.
        It is important for me because I wanted to buy this phone, but I need that he has Gyroscope, for a measurement program that I use. Thank you

          I cannot confirm it and all Gyroscope apps (three) say the phone doesn’t have one. I did use a drive game that way though…

    Everybody that’s equipped with MT6752 does 40000 on Antutu and since most phones on the Chinese market are going to use this SoC (anyone remembers MT6589?) we’re going to get accustomed to this score.

    If anything it shows how weak the pricey Qualcomm SoCs are/were (a point that I would always espouse). It’s great to see that someone other than Apple is making truly powerful SoCs instead of being content with incremental improvements (like Qualcomm does or Ti Omap before her)

      I agree with you when you say that Mediatek is doing better than Qualcomm and the competition is going to push them into real improvements.
      That said, I disagree when you talk about powerful socs mentioning Apple.
      Since the battery technology is behind they should push to make low consumption chips because most of the time we don’t need all that power but we need more autonomy. Look at Apple customers, they are always plugged somewhere (car, train, Starbucks, office etc.)

      • Stef

        Well the reason that Apple products have bad battery is because of Apple’s notion that a phone should be slim. Without it apple products could well be the best performing in battery life. They kinda shoot themselves on the foot there (it’s not as if their fans won’t buy their phones anyway, but still…)

        • MaxPower
          January 31, 2015

          You are missing my point.
          You can even put a 5000 mha battery and still your phone won’t last a full day if you let your SoC run at full speed. Most of the time all that power is not needed and that’s why you put your phone on battery saving downscaling your CPU and lowering the brightness.

            I think im not. I implied that Apple has great battery life per mAh of battery

            To make the issue more concrete, an iphone 6 of 1800 mAh of battery performs about the same as other brands would perform with a 2500 mah battery @ the same screen size. Expanding from that a 3000MaH iphone 6 would be unparalleled in battery life. But that would add around 2 mm in thickness which is not something Apple would abide…

              The Deal is, as i get it, that Apple only makes its Os for THEIR phones taking and making the most out of software integration to hardware, SO is not that their SoC are the great deal is just that their Os is tailorMade for their chip. if they were to do the same on a galaxy S5 hardware THE THING WOULD maybe READ YOUR MIND and stuff!!!

              I think it goes further than that. Apple allows for little to no background processes. If you ask me the number 1 reason of certain androids’ bad battery is background processes, wake locks and in general doing many things at once. That’s always the greatest advantage of android but also the greatest disadvantage (for ram too).

            you know that for now the most consuming parts are display and LTE? Just try to change the frequencies of SoC at 2 times less, but if the display brightness and time would remain, you will not get incredible battery life
            I was trying to fight with 2300 mAh battery of nexus5, but it is impossible just because of the screen and LTE. And no software can help

      How it can be Sony sensor? IMX135 or IMX214 are only 13MP !!!

    Antutu is not reliable.. Snapdragon 800 have better performance than mt6752 but only scores 30k+ … And this mt6752 had a higher score than snapdragon 801.
    Go home antutu you’re drunk!

      u are mistaken!

      check here
      http://roedi7.blogspot.ro
      got the page MT6595, scroll down till u see the 2015 Q1 Chart of ARMv7 & ARMv8

      MediaTek MT6595
      vs
      Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, 805, 801 & 615
      nVidia Tegra K1
      Huawey HiSilicon Kirin 925
      Samsung Exynoss 7 (5433) & Exynoss 5 (5430)
      Intel Atom Z3580
      MediaTek MT6595M, MT6752, MT6592T & MT6592

      notice this: the total score involves the speed of eMMC, RAM, GPU and OS optimization !
      and remember that with the Lollipop 5.x with AARCH64 support and running the score will be HiGHER !

        Antutu is like porn for Mediatek fanboys, they run the benchmark so they can jerk off looking at the high score.
        I rather having less antutu points (BTW, I’ve never turned the perform mode on my SD801 ) and rely on a better GPU and GPS

        • desponent

          What do you rely those GPU for? Candy Crush? So hardcore.

          GPS hasn’t been problem for a long time now, it all depend on the phone vendor.

            Yeah right, go back running some benchmark. Keep it clean

      Good point , that’s why I much prefer Geekbench. It checks ram/cpu alone which (if you also include Emmc speed numbers ) are the only relevant metrics to everyday performance. Traditionally Qualcomm balances cpu with gpu power, mediatek overpowers cpu that’s why you get wimpy cpu on Qualcomm and hence less everyday performance yet better gaming.

      Antutu does not accurately shows the difference between Qualcomm chips and Mediatek’s according to geekbench (and real time performance, I.e. loading screens, scrolling, adding effects on photo manipulation apps) the differences are even greater, the MT6752 crashes any Qualcomm chip out there, even the ultra high end. That’s why I roll my eyes every time this very site (and others as well) is calling a Qualcomm chip an upgrade compared to Mediatek, real time data beg to differ.

      In short if you like gaming buy Qualcomm, if not buy Mediatek, Qualcomm even at its best is mid-end … sorry

      Indeed Antutu, go home, you’re drunk. Mediatek is even faster in real time usage.

      Antutu give too much point for multithread…that’s right! But I see Antutu on s801’s oneplus one it’s 46000pts! It’s still better than mt6752
      But you can compare geekbench single core with the new 64bits mediatek and Qualcomm!
      S410 : about 475pts 1190mhz…mt6732 about 725pts 1495mhz (1190mhz interpolation give 577pts : Qualcomm loose 100pts somewhere…100pts!!!)
      S615 : about 695pts 1536mhz…mt6752 about 810pts 1690mhz…note that s615 make less points despite a better clockspeed than mt6732

      810pts is not as good as s801…but it’s only 20% under with power efficient CPU, that’s quite good…s801 is high-end soc when s615/mt6752 are mid-range. Multithreaded mt6752 score is amazing!

      You can see on YouTube a vietnameese vidéo witch compare HTC 820 and 820s…Qualcomm is far far behind

    Yes, the actual MT CPU’s may score higher, but MT’s GPU’s are still behind. For me a powerful GPU is what truly matters to me… which is why I will still stick with Snapdragon equipped phones, or hopefully a NVidia equipped phone in the future?

    Yes, for current Android games MT GPU’s offer more than enough performance, but I don’t play those games. I emulate other consoles on my phone, and I need as much GPU horsepower as I can get.

      PPSSPP, Drastic, and epsxe work just fine with Mali 450 MP4 in 720p. Guess if you want to game with 4K in a 5″ screen a uselessly powerful, life draining and hot GPU is needed.

      • Akimitsui
        February 3, 2015

        Try playing Gran Turismo on PPSSPP… that really kills the Mali GPU. At least it’s playable with no audio and PSP resolution on the SD 801.

    • Plumplum
      February 1, 2015

      Not on s410 at all…mt6732 is twice better than s410! Yes twice!
      And s615/mt6752 are equal on gfxbench and 3dmark…when mt6752 open applications far faster, I will chose mt6752

      On s80x range…no problem, Qualcomm is far ahead

      • Akimitsui
        February 3, 2015

        Exactly, I have the SD801 equipped Mi4. GPU-wise, I really have not seen much of an improvement from any of the chip makers really, hopefully phone makers make use of an Nvidia chip in the near future.

    What should I buy? Which is better ECOO E04 or Jiayu S3?

    • moshe
      February 9, 2015

      jiayu S3 with 2GB is the same as ECOO E04…
      just choose one

      • Jeep ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ
        February 25, 2015

        Ecoo E04 has fingerprint scanner (I have the E04 and I can say the scanner really works good).
        Next to that the specs are the same. You really can’t go wrong with either one of them I think. Jiayu S3 is also a nice phone 🙂
        So, choose your winner 😉

            Hi Joel,

            The Ecoo E04 does have a notification LED 🙂 I’ve seen green for missed calls and red for notifications.
            If you want to buy it: I bought it from coolicool.com which delivered to me quickly. But another user here on Gizchina also give a discount coupon for Pandawill.com
