Hi every body!

I am making decision on buying an android phone with the following specs:

Android 4.0.4 OS
Dual core processor clocked at 1GHz
PowerVR SGX 531 GPU
1GB RAM
4.5 inches 960?540 pixels qHD resolution.

The performance is as follows:

Quadrant benchmark score : 2651.
Antutu benchmark score : 6562.
Nenamark 2 score : 23.8fps.
Linpack : Single : 37, Multi : 57.

Now my concern is the Nenamark 2 score, as it is only 23.8 fps and low compared to similar devices. Would it be an issue for playing heavy games?

I really like to hear from you guys!

Yes mate afraid so, my gs3 gets 58.8fps on nenamark2 and even some games have a bit of lag.

For playing heavy games your probably looking for a device that has a dual core cpu 1.2ghz or above, with a gpu like the adreno 225, 305 or 320. Or a mali 400mp like in the galaxy s2 and my s3. If your looking at power vr chips, your probably looking for one like the 535 or above.

If a gpu can hit about 45+ on nenamark2 id say that'll be fine to run heavy games.

1GHz? 1GB of RAM? 960X540 is not qHD. Antutu 6562? My phone gets a 39751 Antutu score and I'm not happy. And I'm not a gamer. (Although with a 60.4 Nenamark 2, the phone would probably do pretty well.)

That phone is great for gaming - it were 2010. It's 2014.
