Top 10 Performer smartphone of 2016 2nd quarter


Along with the release of many new smartphones in July, Antutu updated the Top 10 Performance Smartphones in July. From the list, we can see that at present Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 4GB/6GB RAM, 64GB ROM has become a standard configuration of many flagship models. Therefore, the gap between different flagship models is not big in terms of Antutu performance score. Want to know more about the detailed analysis of the performance ranking of July? Come and check with us now.

Statistical rules:

  1.Score: the average score of each model (not the highest score)

  2.Period of data statistics: from July 1, 2016 to July 31, 2016

  3.Data amount: At least 2000 data sample for a single model

  From the average scores of Antutu backstage, we can see that the top 10 performance models are :

  Number one, Oneplus 3,with the average Antutu score of as high as 140288. Oneplus 3 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU( the highest clock speed, 2.2GHz),  6GB RAM and 64GB ROM. With excellent performance configuration, Oneplus 3 continue to claim the top position of July.

  Number two, vivo Xplay5 flagship version. This model adopted the configuration of Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU( the highest clock speed, 2.15GHz) with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM, the average Antutu score is 138706. The performance of vivo Xplay5 flagship really caught our eyes as the first example of Android Phone to be equipped with curved plane screen.

  Number three, LeEco Max2. This model adopted Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU(the highest clock speed, 2.15GHz) ,6GB RAM,64GB ROM with the average Antutu score of 138026. LeEco Max2 is a highly cost effective product with affordable price, powerful performance and  integrated Letv ecosystem.

  The top newcomer to the expanded list also includenubia Z11(standard version). This model is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU with the highest clock speed of 2.15GHz, while adopting the 4GB RAM+64GB ROM memory combination. With average Antutu score of 137685, following behind LeEco Max2 closely, nubia Z11(standard version) ranked fourth in the Top 10 list of July.

  PS: Regarding nubia Z11 XV VIP version (Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 6GB RAM+128GB ROM), because backstage data sample of this model doesn’t reach statistical standard, the Antutu performance score of this model will not be a reference at present.

Reliance Jio - Info and Services



Jio, also known as Reliance Jio and officially as Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (RJIL),[2] is an upcoming provider of mobile telephony, broadband services, and digital services in India. Formerly known as Infotel Broadband Services Limited, Jio will provide 4G services on a pan-India level using LTE technology.[3][4] The telecom leg of Reliance Industries Limited, it was incorporated in 2007 and is based in Mumbai, India.
The services were beta launched to Jio's partners and employees on 27 December 2015 on the eve of 83rd birth anniversary of late Dhirubhai Ambani, founder of Reliance Industries. It will commercially launch its services in the second half of 2016.


Reliance Jio app ecosystem


Reliance Jio is trying to differentiate itself from other operators by focusing on three key areas — VoLTE HD voice calling, high speed data and content services. The company has already rolled out its app ecosystem — available across Android and iOS platforms. Let’s take a quick look at these apps and what they do.
MyJio: This is the core app where you can find all details about your account – such as your tariff plan, account balance, data consumption, recharge, profile, and more.
JioJoin: The app works in conjunction with the JioFi 2 or your Jio SIM card — allowing you to make HD voice calls, even from a non-VoLTE supported smartphone. As of now, the app is only available for Android, since all of the iPhones on sale now are LTE enabled. You can also send and receive text messages and chat with other Jio users with stickers, emojis, send files and more. ALSO READ:Reliance Jio: How to use JioFi 2 wireless hotspot and JioJoin app to make HD voice calls to any number in India
JioBeats: It is a music streaming app just like Hungama Music, Gaana, Saavan and Apple Music. The service has a collection of 2.5 million HD songs in 20 different languages including Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Bhojpuri and more. In terms of genre, you can choose from Gazals, Jazz, Hiphop, Party, Rock and more.
JioOnDemand: The app lets you watch OnDemand movies, just like Netflix, BigFlix, Google Play Movies and other services. It also includes popular TV shows such as Tarak Mehta Ka Ulta Chashma, CID, The Kapil Sharma Show, Aadalt and more.
JioPlay: It is a live TV steaming service that lets you catch all the live TV shows on the go. With more than 291 live TV channels, including 41 HD channels, you can watch your favorite TV shows and movies in 15 different languages. It also includes daily TV guide, record option and repeat telecast option too. Jio has also tied up with Hotstar, which gives access to premium Hotstar content for freeALSO READ: JioPlay Review: Good service, let down by poor interface
JioSecurity: Android being an open source platform, it is also highly prone to a large number of viruses and vulnerabilities. We recently came across QuadRooter vulnerability that allowed hackers to take control of Android smartphone by gaining root access. Powered by Norton, JioSecurity app aims to keep your Android smartphone save from such attacks.
JioChat: Just like WhatsApp, WeChat, Hike Messenger and others, the JioChat is an instant messaging app. The app let you make voice and video calls, and chat with users. You can also send stickers, doodle, share files and do a lot more using the JioChat Messenger app.
JioMoney: The JioMoney app, as the name suggests, is a digital wallet that lets you pay for different services such as landline and electricity bills, mobile and DTH recharge, send money to recipients and more. You can also pay at participating merchants without having to carry your credit or debit cards. We did try out the app and here are our initial impressions. ALSO READ: Reliance JioMoney Wallet app first impressions: Good potential, needs design overhaul
JioDrive: The app is a one stop shop to all your data storage, backup and recovery needs. JioDrive users get 5GB of cloud storage space to backup photos, videos, contacts, SMS and more. The best part about the service is that you can also access it from multiple devices — including your smartphone, tablet, desktop PC or laptop.
JioMags: Reliance Jio has two apps – JioMags and JioExpress News. While the JioMags lets you read all the popular magazines and comics, the JioExpress News app is similar to Flipboard and News Republic – letting you read all the latest news from tech to sports, business, lifestyle, health and more from variety of online publishers across the globe.

Gionee M6 Mini with 5.3-inch display and 4,000 mAh battery

Last month Gionee unveiled two new members of its M-series, which is comprised on smartphones having a huge focus on battery life. The M6 and M6 Plus do this too, the former sporting a 5,000 mAh battery, while the latter has a 6,020 mAh cell. With these two handsets, Gionee has cornered the market for 5.5" and 6" phones with huge batteries, but what about going smaller?
Well, it turns out that in the near future an M6 Mini will join the two in Gionee's portfolio. It has been certified for sale in China by TENAA, the regulatory authority that's akin to the FCC over there. And this process has, as usual, revealed some images of the smartphone.





Alongside these we also get a list of the M6 Mini's specs. It will come with a 5.3-inch 720p touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 5 MP selfie snapper, a 1.5 GHz octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, 4G support, and a 4,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Its dimensions are 149 x 73.3 x 8.2 mm, and it weighs 170g.
It seems to have a metal construction like its two bigger siblings. For now it's unclear exactly when it will launch, or how much it will cost.
