General info

1.Has integrated graphics
Qualcomm Snapdragon 653
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
2.GPU clock speed


The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
3.Supports 64-bit
Qualcomm Snapdragon 653
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
4.semiconductor size


Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
5.DirectX version


DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.OpenCL version


Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.


1.CPU speed

4 x 1.95GHz & 4 x 1.44GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.CPU threads


More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Qualcomm Snapdragon 653
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking e-mail will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.


1.RAM speed


It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
2.memory channels


More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
3.maximum memory size


The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.


1.Has integrated LTE
Qualcomm Snapdragon 653
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
2.download speed


The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
3.upload speed


The upload speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can send information to a server or another device.
