Sony Xperia T2 Ultra dual benchmarks

Sony announced its Xperia T2 Ultra in January and the phablet was designed specifically for Asian and African markets where the big screen smartphones are all the rage. We took the 6-inch device for a benchmark spin and stacked it up against some of its competition.

The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor along with 1 GB of RAM. The specifications of the phablet are quite decent for the mid-range, but has the company managed to get the most out of it? Let’s find out!

We started with the single-core CPU performance test with the help of the Benchmark Pi app. The smartphone turned up with a mediocre performance, scoring 309. We also ran the multi-thread Linpack test, and the latest Xperia phablet found itself in the middle of the pack.

Now, let’s move to the GPU test. The Adreno 305 GPU was made to sweat with the Epic Citadel. The low-end graphics chip didn’t exactly post new records, but it showed that it’s perfectly capable of offering playable framerates even with heavy titles.

The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra dual come out with a mediocre score in most of the tests we ran, but given the positioning of the phablet in the market, that was to be expected. When you put things in the mid-range perspective, the scores are actually very good and the great thing is they are backed by the real-life performance. The smartphone runs pretty smoothly in day to day use and that’s what matters in the end.
