Here comes the highly awaited phone from ASUS, which claims to be world’s fastest PDA-Phone. It arrived yesterday and after posting unboxing pictures, I went straight to do some benchmarking. Without wasting more time, let us take a look at the benchmarks.
For the benchmarking test, we used 3 devices: ASUS P565, ASUS P552W and HTC DIAMOND. The ASUS P565 is the first windows mobile device powered by Intel Marvell Tavor 800MHz processor. Infact, it is the first mobile device to be powered by such a powerful processor. ASUS P552W is also an extremely fast device powered by Intel Marvell Tavor 624MHz processor. The HTC DIAMOND is powered by Qualcomm 528MHz processor.
Let the game begin!
As one can observe, the ASUS P565 scored the best in almost everything. Note that since ASUS P552W is a QVGA device, it’s processor has to do comparatively less work when it comes to graphic processing. Since, the users would be having their eyes on the VGA devices, which in this scene are ASUS P565 and HTC DIAMOND, it would be more appropriate to pay more attention to their performance.
Now, let us take the ASUS P552W out of the scene to make the comparison more fairer.
Leave the benchmarks aside, does it really feel snappy?
Yes, it does. It is definitely lot snappier than the HTC DIAMOND, whose processor is shared by the likes of HTC TOUCH PRO and HTC TOUCH HD too. Overall, a very nicely made device and we are indeed very impressed with the ASUS P565.
On a side note, the touch screen is very very sensitive. Stay tuned for the full review, which will be published in few days!
