MobileBench Consortium comes out with own benchmarking app

The MobileBench Consortium was created in 2013, when a number of companies came together with the purpose of making a benchmarking app/process that was standardized and that would be acceptable across all parts of the industry.

Their app – called MobileBench – is now out on Google Play.

We fly to Qualcomm's San Diego office to get a first-hand look, and the results are quite spectacular and, frankly, unsurprising.

Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 64-bit specs leak via benchmark

New PCMark app for Android to provide more useful benchmarks

Futuremark has been in the business of providing benchmarking tools for PCs since the beginning of 3D gaming, so it would make sense that they would at least try to get into the mobile device benchmarking niche where a lot of apps already give their own version of performance benchmarks. The new PCMark for Android is out now to give us what Futuremark says are more useful numbers.

Motorola’s new DROID Turbo appears at GFX Bench

One of those things we love about smartphone manufacturers is when they need their egos stroked (or destroyed) in wanting to see how their new unlaunched, super-secret phones stack up against others – hence the need to use benchmarking software. It practically gives us a full look into the innards of their new phones, like this new Motorola DROID Turbo, which recently made an appearance at GFX Bench.
