Antutu Benchmark App for Android
Do you want to know how fast and powerful your mobile phone is? If so, you may want to get yourself a benchmarking app.
The iOS platform is a little bit locked when it comes to benchmarking, but not the Android operating system. In this article, we are going to talk about the Antutu Benchmark App for Android.
The Antutu Benchmark App for Android mobile phones is a very powerful and extensive benchmarking app that subjects your mobile phone into a series of benchmark tests and it will give you a numerical value of your phone’s overall performance.
There are a lot of benchmarking tests that this app will subject your phone into so we are going to go over them one by one.
The first benchmark tool that the Antutu Benchmark App for Android mobile phones will give is the 3D test. Your mobile phone will be given a battery of tests to see the 3D prowess of the hardware of your mobile phone.
I subjected my mobile phone with their battery of tests and my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4) lagged quite a bit among other mid-ranged phones. I only got a measly 18-20 fps on the 3D test which is a little bit slow and almost unplayable in real-world scenarios.
The next test that this app will give your mobile phone is the 2D sprites test. As you’ve probably guessed, this series of tests will subject your phone to numerous 2D sprites and graphics. My phone performed better in the 2D sprites test giving me a total of 40-50 fps depending on the saturation of the 2D graphics. That is more than enough playable framerates if you ask me.
Moving on to the next test, the UNIX test. The UNIX test is a combination of tests that will examine the power of your mobile phone’s CPU. It will perform CPU intensive tasks like rendering, for example, and it will give you a numerical result once it is finished.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 that I have did quite well, although when compared to other mid-range mobile phones, it ranked only third in the list.
The last battery of tests that the Antutu Benchmark App for Android mobile phones will give you is none other than the RAM test. The RAM test will subject your mobile phone into RAM intensive tasks. This can range anywhere from opening numerous test apps to CPU and RAM intensive tasks. Since the Galaxy S4 only had 2GB of RAM, it still performed quite well in this test. Although those mobile phones with only 1GB of RAM may get a poor score from this type of test.
Also remember that since this is a benchmarking app, it will last anywhere between 5-10 minutes depending on your mobile phone’s specs. The Antutu Benchmark App for Android will test your mobile phone automatically and all you have to do is press the “Start test” button to start the benchmarking process.
Another thing to note is that since this is a benchmarking tool, your mobile phone will run quite hot. This is normal and there is nothing to worry about. Also, make sure that you are connected to the internet so that you will know where your phone stands amongst other mobile phones that have similar specs to yours.
