SMArt­phoNes & tAblets

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

When it comes to smart­phones and tablets, we pre­fer let­ting our read­ers know how the de­vices we re­view ap­peal to us in terms of per­for­mance, de­sign, fea­tures and other as­pects such as bat­tery life, us­abil­ity and its over­all value. To test these de­vices we re­place them with our own daily use de­vices and use them as we would any smart­phone or tablet.

As for An­droid based de­vices, we use a trio of bench­marks to gain a more tan­gi­ble idea of their per­for­mance and these in­clude: • AnTuTu Bench­mark: At the mo­ment, AnTuTu is one of the best bench­marks as it is a com­plete pack­age that gives us an all-round hard­ware test that in­cludes the likes of Mem­ory Per­for­mance, CPU In­te­ger Per­for­mance, 2D and 3D Graph­ics Per­for­mance, SD Card Read/Write Speed and more. • Quad­rant Stan­dard Edi­tion: Ever since Quad­rant was re­leased, it has be­come a sta­ple in the ar­se­nal of smart­phone and tablet re­view­ers as it pro­vides a com­pre­hen­sive set of tools that test the per­for­mance of a de­vice’s CPU, I/O and 3D graph­ics. • Epic Ci­tadel: We re­serve Epic Ci­tadel for de­vices that fall in the high-end and mid-range cat­e­gories as this bench­mark truly shows the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of a de­vice’s GPU. Pow­ered by the crit­i­cally ac­claimed Un­real En­gine 3, Epic Ci­tadel fea­tures ef­fects such as Global Il­lu­mi­na­tion, Dy­namic Spec­u­lar Light­ing with Tex­ture Masks, Ver­tex De­for­ma­tion, Skele­tal An­i­ma­tion, etc.
