Next, we'll take a look at how the Huawei P8 lite compares to other smartphones by examining a few benchmarks that are currently available in the Android Marketplace.
Balanced - This test is balanced between different areas of the language and different types of code. It's not all math, all string processing, or all timing simple loops. In addition to having tests in many categories, the individual tests were balanced to take similar amounts of time on currently shipping versions of popular browsers.
Statistically Sound - One of the challenges of benchmarking is knowing how much noise you have in your measurements. This benchmark runs each test multiple times and determines an error range (technically, a 95% confidence interval). In addition, in comparison mode it tells you if you have enough data to determine if the difference is statistically significant.
We ran the SunSpider test using both browsers installed on the phone. In the past, we’ve noticed that the Chrome browser is typically slower than other browsers in this test. This held true for the P8 lite; the standard Browser returned a better score. Even so, the performance of the P8 lite in this test is significantly worse than other phones, landing the P8 lite at the bottom of this chart.
We see similar results in the BrowserMark test where the Huawei P8 lite is again at the bottom of the chart, lagging significantly behind other phones we have for comparison.
