JXD s5110 perfomance review and improvements [W.I.P.]

Hi!
   In this post I´m going to test the JXD s5110 with different ROMs (ICSs and GBs) and show the performance results using the Android Antutu Benchmark program.
   The objective it´s to decide which software configuration will push the s5110 to its limits.


   Let´s start with an out-of-the-box s5110 with Android 4.03 and let´s compare it with an Xperia Play. The Xperia Play it´s at the top of the "mono core" Android gaming devices and both units has similar specifications.

    The Xperia Play I´m using has a locked bootloader (so Stock Kernel), root and a modified GB v2.3.4 ROM: Gin2JellyBean v1.8.1. This modified ROM is one of the fastest ROM available for this device. (More info on XDA)
    The JXD s5110 has an Android 4.03 ICS ROM from JXD.


   
I´m using the Antutu v3.0.3 Benchmark program to test both devices. This program is a very well-known Android benchmark utility and it´s widely use.
   The results it provides are used to make a percentage comparative between the two devices.



   After running the Antutu´s test these are the results:

- JXD s5110:  4.070 points
- Xperia Play: 4.450 points

   Approximately the Play scores 28% more points than the JXD unit!!!


   Let´s see it in more detail (SoC):



Both devices have an ARMv7 instructions set 1MHz CPU unit from different manufacturers:

JXD s5110: AMLOGIC MESON3 8726M SKT SH (ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore) with a MALI-400M
Xperia Play: Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 MSM8255 with an Adreno 205

- JXD s5110 CPU Integer: 491 - CPU Float point: 565
- Xperia Play CPU Integer:727 - CPU Float point: 491 

- JXD s5110 2D Graphs: 393 - 3D Graphs: 1724
- Xperia Play 2D Graphs: 500 - 3D Graphs: 1969




   The numbers speaks for themselves...the Xperia Play it´s a winner



   This result has to be treated with care. The JXD unit it´s a very low cost device meanwhile the Xperia Play it´s a 2011 device that in 2013 it´s still the ONLY mobile device with hardware controls for playing. Back in the 2011 the Play was a mid-range device
   A new JXD s5110 devices costs just 63€ meanwhile a Xperia Play (GSM) are being sold for 150€ more or less (second hand units in perfect conditions)
   So an Xperia Play cost 3 times more than a JXD s5110 unit. These facts balance them very close.

   Conclusion: The JXD s5110 it´s a very low cost device with a great performance. It has a BIG screen (5"), nice controls and it´s rooted by default. It´s specifications make this device handle perfectly well most emulators. So it´s recommended buy.




  • Part two.
   After updating the s5110 stock ICS ROM to the v1.6 ICS Skelrom the device seems to run better although the Antutu Benchmark are the same more or less:

- JXD s5110:  4.024 points - v1.6 SkelROM
- JXD s5110:  4.070 points
- Xperia Play: 4.450 points 

- JXD s5110 CPU Integer: 594 - CPU Float point: 428 - v1.6 SkelROM
- JXD s5110 CPU Integer: 491 - CPU Float point: 565
- Xperia Play CPU Integer:727 - CPU Float point: 491 

- JXD s5110 2D Graphs: 395 - 3D Graphs: 1690 - v1.6 SkelROM
- JXD s5110 2D Graphs: 393 - 3D Graphs: 1724
- Xperia Play 2D Graphs: 500 - 3D Graphs: 1969


   After several days using the s5110 with the v1.6 SkelROM, my advice is to stick with it. The original Stock ROM it´s a little slower and it has some bugs that Skelton has solved.

  
  •  Part three.
   After updating the s5110 v1.6 ICS Skelrom to my v1.7 (firmware v2.5) ROM the device seems to run better although the Antutu Benchmark are the same more or less:


- JXD s5110:  4.017 points - v1.7
- JXD s5110:  4.024 points - v1.6 SkelROM

- JXD s5110 CPU Integer: 599 - CPU Float point: 428 - v1.7
- JXD s5110 CPU Integer: 594 - CPU Float point: 428 - v1.6 SkelROM

- JXD s5110 2D Graphs: 398 - 3D Graphs: 1572 - v1.7
- JXD s5110 2D Graphs: 395 - 3D Graphs: 1690 - v1.6 SkelROM

   After several days using the s5110 with my v1.7 ROM, I´ll stick with it.





   W.I.P. post. 
   Things I´m going to test in the JXD s5110 device and post the results:
   - Skelrom´s Gingerbread ROM comparing the performance with the stock one
   - Kairnage´s Rabid ROM v1.0 (ICS)   - 00Zip00´s zcr 1.0 (GB)
   - Different tweaks to speed up this device.
