Huawei P8 (GRA-UL00/Standard Edition/Dual 4G)

1 Kirin 935 core Huawei P8 performance test

From Huawei P6 to Huawei P8, from HiSilicon K3V2E to HiSilicon Kirin 935, it is also very appropriate to interpret it with the four words “like a water flowing year”. As early as the global conference of Huawei P8 in London, England, in mid-April, we evaluated the aircraft, but because it is an engineering machine, it is subject to some restrictions, so we have not analyzed it too deeply in terms of performance, and today it is made up, let’s see how strong this HiSilicon Kirin 935 octa-core core is.

What chip is Kirin 935? Huawei P8 performance test

As we all know, Google’s 64-bit Android 5.0 operating system has officially begun to push as early as last year, and the Android flagships of various brands are gradually upgrading to this latest system. Huawei P8, as Huawei’s annual flagship, is naturally no exception. The so-called good horse with a good saddle, the 64-bit operating system is available, and the hardware is naturally to keep up with the pace and upgrade to 64-bit.

The eight-core HiSilicon Kirin 935 adopts four 2.2GHz A53 cores + four 1.5GHz A53 cores, and big.LITTLE large and small core design. Unlike the ARM Cortex-A53, which cannot run on high main frequencies, Huawei solved this problem and independently developed the Library on the basis of the Cortex-A53, forming a new A53 architecture, so that the processor can run stably on 2.0GHz. At the same time, it also makes the new A53 core the main big core.

Huawei’s choice of this A53 design can better balance power consumption and performance, which not only improves the performance of large cores, but also controls power consumption within an acceptable range. At the same time, in the Kirin 935 chip, Huawei also added a coprocessor, which is based on ARM TrustZone’s hardware security technology, with Huawei’s EMUI 3.1 operating system, built-in encryption algorithm, support secure boot, can effectively protect user information and payment security. This function is the same as the coprocessor of fingerprint recognition technology in Huawei’s previous Mate 7.

High performance and low power consumption are actually fish and bear’s paw in many cases, but Huawei mobile phones have been doing well in this regard with the help of Kirin series processors, and Kirin 935 is even better. The Kirin 935 core works with the world’s first App power consumption firewall built into Huawei P8, which can shield abnormal power applications, which according to Huawei’s data, can extend its standby time by 2.3 days, normal use for 1.5 days, and heavy use for 1 day.

In addition to power consumption, it also has a corresponding optimization improvement in signal. We know that Huawei has deep knowledge in communications, and Huawei P8 also has a good signal performance on high-speed rail. Although there is no opportunity to test on the high-speed rail, but through my test of Unicom 4G on Beijing Metro Line 10, Huawei P8 communication, 4G network time and speed are also better than other mobile phones.

Beijing Metro Line 10 connected 4G speed test results

Judging from my 4G speed test at Haidian Huangzhuang Station – Huixin West Street North Exit Station of Metro Line 10, the Huawei P8 has an uplink speed of 9.71Mbps and a downlink speed of 21.74Mbps. Friends who often take this line should know that the network signal of this section of the road is actually not very good compared to other subway lines in Beijing, and Huawei P8 can measure this result during the rush hour.

Looking at the game test, we chose Real Racing 3, which is a relatively large racing game on mobile devices. Huawei P8 runs the real racing 17, the game loading speed is good, the game process is relatively smooth, playing for about half an hour, the heat of the fuselage is also controlled within an acceptable range.


Huawei P8’s Kirin 935 does not pursue fever performance too much, but gives users a balanced and comprehensive experience from multiple aspects such as power consumption and battery life, network connection, etc. At present, smart phones, in fact, for most users, performance is excessive, and the replacement of smart phones is relatively fast. As the core of a mobile phone, the processor should not consider how high the score can run, but what kind of experience it can bring to the user. Obviously, Huawei P8’s Kirin 935 sees this, and people want a stronger signal and better power consumption.
