Mobile Benchmark - Benchmarking Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 920T (Honor 6 LTE)

Huawei's own chip maker arm, HiSilicon recently updated their Kirin family of SoC with the release of Kirin 920.This SoC is an Octa Core (4 Core Cortex-A15 + 4 Core Cortex-A7) using the latest ARM's big.LITTLE Architecture.

Recently, we manage to get a hold of Honor6 smart phone, the first smart phone using the new Kirin 920 paired with 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The downside of this Octa-Core chip set is that the SoC still uses Mali-T628 MP4 GPU for Graphic even though a newer generation of Mali GPU is already available and used by Mediatek in their latest SoC offering.

On paper, Kirin 920 would still be a force in the SoC world but only a real world test would actually show any truth to their Octa-Core superiority.

With the help of few friends, we've manage to run our basic benchmark test using Basemark OS II that is available for almost all mobile OS here.

The test was done without any intention to beat anyone so, the result might be different from you readers out there as the test was run on a working mobile phone with running background apps.

We've manage to gather few models from Xiaomi, Apple, Samsung, Nokia and Honor and here is the result.

Overall Score
Let Start with the Overall score result where Apple’s new Iphone 6 Plus seems to be the overall winner here, leaving every android phone in the dust. Honor6 come in 6th and the overall score for Kirin 920 is still below the established Snapdragons used by Xiaomi's Mi3 and Samsung's Note 3.


On the System side, Honor6's Kirin 920 manage to beat all the other Snapdragon smart phones. This might be because of the adoption of ARM's latest big.LITTLE architecture.

GPU Graphic

Graphics GPU on the other hand are the Kirin 920's Achilles heel as the older generation Mali GPU just cant generate the numbers that Adereno 330 that available in HTC One M8.


Kirin 920 by HiSilicon might be great with the latest big.LITTLE architecture and Octa-Core in the processing side but the GPU still fall short from other main SoC players. Maybe with the introduction of Kirin 925 HiSilicon can actually catch up in this very demanding SoC environment.
