Allwinner A31s AnTuTu Score Inflation

In a review of the Onda V975 9.7-inch Retina-class screen tablet [Google English], IMP3Net drily notes:

An Tutu latest 4.0 version changes a lot of test items, so the score with the old version does not have a comparative value, the machine twenty thousand multisection not low, but it does not reflect the actual control experience.

Better translation:

AnTuTu 4.0 changes a lot of testing, so this new score can’t be compared to the old one. Although this tablet scores in the 20,000-range, that does not reflect the real-world user experience.

This is the first acknowledgement of the A31s score inflation versus real-world performance in a review.

With AnTuTu 3.x, the Allwinner A31s scored in the 11,000-12,000-range. It seems the actual user experience remains the same, despite the — possibly fraudulent — score inflation with 4.0.

The tablet itself is yet another with too little RAM — just 1GB, with sometimes as little as 200MBs free. Web pages spontaneously close or the browser crashes altogether. There are also problems with some large games.

If tablet makers can’t get 9.7-inch Retina-class tablets right, do you really hold any hope for Retina-class iPad Mini clones?
