Bench­mark Per­for­mance

HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST -

SunSpi­der JavaScript

SunSpi­der JavaScript mea­sures the brows­ing per­for­mance of a de­vice when pro­cess­ing JavaScript. It not only takes into con­sid­er­a­tion the un­der­ly­ing hard­ware per­for­mance, but also as­sesses how op­ti­mized a par­tic­u­lar plat­form is at de­liv­er­ing a high­speed web brows­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. The S8 was the clear win­ner here, but all of the phones per­formed well, de­liv­er­ing a smooth and lag-free ex­pe­ri­ence.


Quad­rant is an An­droid bench­mark that eval­u­ates a de­vice’s CPU, mem­ory, I/O and 3D graph­ics per­for­mances. The S8 was once again the clear win­ner in this bench­mark. Sur­pris­ingly, both Qual­comm Snap­dragon 835 phones per­formed very poorly, los­ing to the older Snap­dragon 821-pow­ered LG G6. We sus­pect the 835 is hav­ing a prob­lem with a spe­cific test func­tion within 4uad­rant, re­sult­ing in its lack­lus­ter scores.

3DMark – Sling Shot Un­lim­ited

3DMark Sling Shot is an ad­vanced 3D graph­ics bench­mark that tests the full range of OpenGL ES 3.1 and ES 3.0 API fea­tures, in­clud­ing mul­ti­ple ren­der tar­gets, in­stanced ren­der­ing, uni­form buf­fers, and trans­form feed­back. The test also in­cludes im­pres­sive vol­u­met­ric light­ing and post-pro­cess­ing ef­fects. We’re run­ning this bench­mark in Un­lim­ited mode, which ig­nores screen res­o­lu­tions.

The Snap­dragon 835 fi­nally bested Sam­sung’s Exynos 8895, with both the XZ Pre­mium and HTC U11 post­ing mas­sive scores. The U11 was helped by its huge 6GB RAM, and recorded the high­est score we’ve seen so far on this bench­mark.

Bat­tery Life

Our stan­dard bat­tery test for mo­bile phones in­volves loop­ing an HD video with screen bright­ness and vol­ume at 100 per­cent, Wi-Fi and Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity turned on, and con­stant data stream­ing through email and Twitter.

Even with its mas­sive screen size and high res­o­lu­tion, Sam­sung’s S8 proved the clear win­ner here, thanks to its low power con­sump­tion AMOLED dis­play. The Sony Xpe­ria XZ Pre­mium was by far the worst per­former due to the high power de­mands of its 4K res­o­lu­tion LCD dis­play.
