The ZTE Grand S II Marginally Outshines The Galaxy Note 3 In Benchmarks

ZTE Grand S II

The ZTE Grand S II has just been spotted in an AnTuTu benchmark listing and has surprisingly outperformed the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The smartphone is set for an official launch on April 1, so this is just the marketing boost the company could ask for at this moment.

Chinese site CNMO decided to pit the two smartphones on AnTuTu, with the Note 3 scoring a decent 34,652 while the Grand S II managed to score 34,938, indicating a sufficient increase in scores.

As we all know, benchmark scores are never indicative of how a device performs. But this revelation merely tells us that the Grand S II is capable of standing up to stalwarts like the Galaxy Note 3.

Both smartphones use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, which is why the benchmark scores are almost comparable. The Grand S II also comes with a 5.5 inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel camera, a 3,000 mAh battery and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Although the ZTE flagship might be limited to China for the foreseeable future, the company is hopeful of bringing the device to the rest of the world markets. We expect to have more information on that in the coming weeks.
