Sharp is yet to announce the AQUOS SHL23 in Japan but someone has managed to get their hands on a device and run some benchmarks. And not only did the device run them well but also managed to top the charts.
What we have here is the benchmark score from Basemark X, which is a gruelling GPU benchmark for mobile devices. The AQUOS SHL23 running the Snapdragon 800 processor blazed straight to the top of the chart with a score of 13.1, narrowly beating the LG G2 that runs on the same processor.
The Snapdragon 800 SoCs uses the new Adreno 330 GPU, which is one of the fastest on the market today. In comparison, you can see how the Adreno 320 from the Snapdragon 600 on the US version of Galaxy S4 stacks up.
