To conclude, the P Smart 2021 performance (257) was higher than most low tier devices. However, when comparing the device performance with other devices having the same battery size, the P Smart performance is lower than expected. The Huawei device performs better than the Xiaomi Redmi 8 (251) and the Motorola G7 (131) but is behind some of their main competitors’ devices like Realme C11 (266), Motorola G8 Power (275), Oppo A5 (280), Wiko View 5 (385).

ViserMark tests are performed with the strictest protocol in a controlled environment to ensure repetition and consistency powered and automated by SmartViser’s test automation solution viSer. The automation test includes a variety of user actions from calls to social media and periods of standby times.
