OnePlus 6T Web Browsing And General Compute Benchmarks

For our first tests we're using the JetStream benchmark for Javascript performance and RightWare’s Web Test 3.0 for comprehensive, mixed-media web performance analysis, including HTML5 rendering. Here we'll primarily determine how the OnePlus 6's Snapdragon 845 SoC handles this workload, along with its OxygenOS, a healthy 8GB of RAM and the Chrome web browser...

Perhaps there was a web browser update or something with respect to Android 9 Pie, for the One Plus 6T but it doesn't even quite keep up with the previous generation One Plus 6 in these tests, though it's based on the exact same Snapdragon processor and 8GB of RAM setup. We'll chalk this up to an outlier on these runs and look at heavier duty tests next.

GeekBench
Synthetic CPU Benchmark
In the GeekBench test, we're stressing only CPU cores in a handset (not graphics), with both single and multi-threaded workloads. The test is comprised of encryption processing, image compression, HTML5 parsing, physics calculations, and other general purpose compute processing. 

GeekBench One Plus6T

GeekBench slots in the OnePlus 6T essentially right on top of the OnePlus 6 and in the top quadrant among other high-end Android devices in the market. 

Futuremark PCMark For Android
General Purpose Pocket Computing Performance Metrics
Futuremark's PCMark for Android is a new benchmark addition here for us, so we have fewer results in our database of tested phones to show you. However, this is an excellent suite of tests that we highly recommend for benchmarking performance of a handset with heavier-duty tasks for things like image and video editing, as well as lighter-duty workloads like email, and web browsing. When you see the test running live it's clear the scripted application tests are carefully selected and tuned to make use of the platforms involved in a very controlled way.

PCMark 10 is a lighter-duty sort of general use and productivity test, though it does run over a longer extended period of time than something like GeekBench. Here, the OnePlus 6T notches notably ahead of the OnePlus 6 and within sniffing distance of the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL. Perhaps its slightly larger chassis allows it a bit more thermal capacity over all, resisting saturation better over extending testing

AnTuTu 7
Platform Benchmarks
AnTuTu’s latest benchmark returns a number of metrics ranked with somewhat nebulous scores, rather than frame rates or time to complete. We tested with the latest version of AnTuTu across all platforms including Android, iOS and even Windows Phone. AnTuTu returns four top level performance metric results that we are including here: CPU, RAM, 3D, UX (or User Experience), along with a total score.

AnTuTu 7 ranks the OnePlus 6T near the top of the stack here, clocking in right behind the burly ASUS ROG Phone and edging-out its slightly older sibling.
