Few flag­ship phones launch to­day with per­for­mance with which you’d be dis­ap­pointed, and thus our bench­mark re­sults that re­veal which is the fastest phone or the most pow­er­ful phone be­come less rel­e­vant. Rather, con­sumers look to which phone of­fers

the long­est bat­tery life, the best cam­eras or the coolest ex­tra fea­tures, or they go with the brand with which they are most fa­mil­iar or the phone they think looks the best.

We all have our own opin­ions on which is the best smart­phone, but this doesn’t mean bench­marks don’t mat­ter. As such, we con­tinue to run all smart­phones that en­ter the An­droid Ad­vi­sor Test Cen­tre through our usual bench­marks, which look at pro­cess­ing per­for­mance, graph­ics per­for­mance, JavaScript per­for­mance and bat­tery life. These tests in­clude:

AnTuTu 3D (pro­cess­ing per­for­mance) Geek­bench 3 bat­tery test (bat­tery per­for­mance) Geek­bench 3 (pro­cess­ing per­for­mance) GFXBench T-Rex and Man­hat­tan (on­screen graph­ics per­for­mance) JetStream (JavaScript per­for­mance)

Keep in mind while brows­ing our re­sults that bench­mark boost­ers are real, and there is lit­tle we can do about this. Bench­marks should be taken with a pinch of salt (we’ve seen phones giv­ing vary­ing re­sults within min­utes of each test), and used as only one fac­tor in your pur­chas­ing de­ci­sion.
