In terms of the phone, most of the specs are the same, although the screen is understandably smaller at 4.3-inches (1,280 x 720 pixels), as is the battery (1,500mAh).

As Engadget's Myriam Joire notes, the benchmark tests run by the publication illustrate the SoC's "ludicrous speed," with the tablet hitting 20,762 in quadrant and smartphone racking up a score of 22,022. The SoC also fared well in AnTuTu 3.x, maxing out at 35, 783 (tablet) and 33,828 (phone), respectively. Sunspider? How about 657 (tablet) and 674 (smartphone).
