A recent Geekbench 5 record has been dug up for the Sony Xperia 5 III that shows the Snapdragon 888-powered compact-ish smartphone producing very healthy results, especially over its Xperia 5 II predecessor. The Xperia 5 III outgunned powerful rivals such as the Samsung Galaxy S21+ and Asus ROG Phone 3 in the single-core and multi-core tests.

Not too long ago an alleged Geekbench test result for the brand-new Sony Xperia 1 III turned up that revealed how well the new smartphone managed to utilize its Snapdragon 888 in synthetic benchmark testing. It seems that record could have actually been the genuine article as a new listing for a Sony Xperia 5 III has turned up with very similar results, which can be expected as the two new Sony smartphones are practically two peas from the same pod, although the larger Xperia 1 III has a RAM advantage (12 GB vs. 8 GB). The record for a Sony XQ-BQ52, the global variant of the Xperia 5 III, shows a single-core score of 1,127 points and a multi-core score of 3,606 points.

Those results stack up very well against the competition and predecessor device. The Geekbench charts certainly have a lot of omissions, but you can at least get a general idea of the comparative performance ability of a smartphone. The Sony Xperia 5 III’s results are a theoretical maximum though, which needs to be taken into account when comparing with the average results taken from multiple tests for the phones in the Geekbench charts. In single-core testing, the Xperia 5 III takes the current leader Samsung Galaxy S21+ by +11.81%, while the poor old Snapdragon 865-powered Xperia 5 II is overwhelmed by a huge +48.48%.

The Galaxy S21+ isn’t the occupant of the Geekbench multi-core top spot, which is taken by the Asus ROG Phone 3 with its Snapdragon 865+. The Sony Xperia 5 III’s result puts it +11.16% ahead of the ROG Phone 3 and +16.14% beyond the Snapdragon 888 version of the Galaxy S21+. These are good results for the Sony phone, although once again it is worth remembering this is potential maximum versus average. As for the Xperia 5 II, its multi-core score of 2,369 points leaves the Xperia 5 III with +52.22% gains, neatly demonstrating the generational leap accomplished by both Qualcomm’s processors and Sony’s smartphones.
