Update KE7. I'm speaking of course of the Galaxy S II, a device we've got on hand for massive testing of the benchmark variety. What you're about to see are a few tests done on the Samsung Galaxy S II in its completely NOT overclocked state. You'll see both Quadrant Advanced and Smartbench 2011 hitting numbers over 4000. You'll see comparisons with older tests of overclocked and non-overclocked results on this device as well as on a couple other devices. Welcome back to the Thunderdome!
Motorola DROID3 have emerged, giving us hints as to the specifications of the upcoming Android smartphone. According to the stats at Nenamark, the DROID3 uses a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU powering a qHD resolution, 960 x 540 display. The phone is also running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, or at least was at time of testing. The PowerVR GPU closes off suggestions that Motorola would use the Tegra 2 chipset for the DROID3, instead indicating that it's Texas Instrument's dual-core 1GHz OMAP4430. Meanwhile we already known that the qHD display measures in at 4-inches, and that the DROID3 has a front-facing camera. No word on launch date, but if Motorola is benchmarking the phone then that might suggest it's imminent. [via Droidlife]
heard plenty about recently. Some of those fancy developers at XDA we are always talking about in the android community have done it again, and already overclocked the SGS II to 1.5 Ghz and that is just the start.
leaked. Soon after that you get people that want to test and run benchmarks and see just how big of a difference the version of Android can make. Now we have a little more confirmation on quadrant results.
hands-on with it and a good look at its inside and outsides. Now what we want is, of course, the benchmarks! Which ones shall we chose? Why, Quadrant and SunSpider of course, we wanna know how fast it's processing AND how fast it's browsing - so lets have at it!
Motorola Xoom is quick don't get me wrong, but it just got a lot faster with the overclocking results I have to show you guys today. I went ahead and rooted with the very simple Xoom 1-Click-Root method, in that program you can also flash the latest Tiamat overclock kernel. I did that, took about 45 seconds. Now I'm cruising around at 1.504 Ghz and boy let me tell you, this thing is fast. Check out below to see what I mean.
