    We’ve seen and played with a few quad core Qualcomm CPU-based smartphones and this new model manages to score much lower than those ones. In the video below you can see the AnTuTu benchmark and the Quadrant one in action, with the phone getting 14k points in AnTuTu, which is about 6k lower than the ASUS PadFone 2 I’ve already played with. It’s also more than 10K lower than the Lenovo K900, an Intel Clover Trail+ handset tested recently after its launch at CES 2013.
