Performance: CPU and Device
AnTuTu’s latest benchmark returns a number of scores—too many to graph so we’re including a look at all the numbers in a table. This test measures subsystem performance in various areas like Database IO, Storage IO, CPU (Int. and Float), GPU (3D), and RAM (speed).
The Nexus 6 took second place overall here, just behind the iPhone 6 Plus and beating out the Galaxy Note 4. If you examine the scores a bit closer, you’ll see that the Nexus 6 edges out the iPhone 6 Plus in a few of the individual tests.
The MobileXPRT benchmark runs through a variety of tests to evaluate the responsiveness of a device along with its ability to handle many everyday workloads. The results from the Nexus 6 echoed the results from AnTuTu’s benchmark. Here again, the Nexus 6 performed very well and took second place in both the Overall score and User Experience Score.
In terms of its multi-core performance, the Nexus 6 takes the top spot according to GeekBench. In the single-core test, the Nexus 6 comes in third place behind the iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
