The Onda V975M: Not All That?

Previously, I published from an IMP3Net review an AnTuTu score for this machine that was in the 30,000-range.

Now a user who has rooted the machine has published a substantially different AnTuTu score [Google English]:

OndaV975MAnTuTuRoot

I would trust the user’s AnTuTu score. Why? Aside from rooting it, the user installed a modified Onda ROM. What likely happened then is all of the cheats Onda had were bypassed, thus showing its truer — and much lower — AnTuTu score.

This is why I hate writing about Chinese tablets. There’s so much damn fraud. And passing it along in ignorant good faith makes me feel dirty.

    Hi Mike,

    Very interesting. I ran AnTuTu X on Onda V975, with 1.05 software and I got score over 30k similar to the AnTuTu 4. But during the tests I measured, that CPU was clocked up to 2.0 GHz, not 1.6 GHz.
