With 1 GB of RAM, the device performs well in our daily usage. In our benchmark tests, the device scored 20,814 in the AnTuTu benchmark, which is slightly above YU Yunique. In terms of the 3DMark benchmark, the Y27L scored 4,370 in the Ice Storm Unlimited test at HD resolution, 2,634 in the Ice Storm Extreme, and 5,260 in IceStorm. Moving on to web browsing, the device performed without any lags. In terms of the Vellamo benchmark, the device scored 1,590 which is fairly decent. The device does tend to heat a bit when playing games and surfing the web for some time.
When it comes to gaming, the device handles Temple Run 2 and Subway Surfers well. But when we played high-intensive games like Asphalt 8 and Mortal Kombat X, the device started to lag a lot. Asphalt 8 runs well in low graphics mode.
Considering the fact that the device features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 chipset, which is a 64-bit CPU, we were expecting better performance.
The call quality was fairly good. Wi-Fi reception was poor and the phone was unable to connect to a network if there were too obstructions. We tested this with the Gionee Marathon M5, which at least picked up a Wi-Fi network. Location-based services work well in the device, as it locks the positioning of the device quickly.
More work needs to be done on the software for it to be competitive with smartphones by other manufacturers like Motorola which offers stock Android. On the whole, in comparison which devices such as Moto G3, Lenovo K3 note, this device's performance is underwhelming.
