In what's sure to be a hit with hardware nerds, AnandTech has run a suite of benchmarks on 27 different devices. The line-up is dominated by Android, but also includes the iPhone 3GS (both on 4.1 and 4.2.1), iPhone 4, iPad, Blackberry Torch, and the WP7-powered HTC Surround. The results? Broadly speaking, Android comes out looking damn good. As for the dual cores - well, as you'd expect, they performed even better.

The hardware was all over the map, including dual-core devices such as the TI OMAP 4430-powered LG Optimus 3D, the Tegra 2-powered Optimus 2X, and the Exynos 4210-powered Samsung Galaxy S II, all the way through today's run of the mill (single core) high(er)-end devices packing A4's, Hummingbirds, Snapdragons and beyond. Take a look at the results:





Like I said: Android certainly manages to impress, and the dual-core devices even more so. For a more in-depth technical rundown of the testing and results, follow the source link!

    stupid framerate caps on EVO, lol

    • Eric

      Are you kidding me? The Frame caps didn't affect this at all. The first few tests don't deal with framerate, and the last 2 it gets like 7fps, nowhere near the cap.

    Is phone arena linked to Anandtech? Because those graphs are clearly taken from them:
    I see now that they are linked as the source, but please link to Anandtech directly if possible - it's their work :)

      This. Source is needed.

        Thanks for pointing it out, guys - I just fixed it all up.

          Whoops, my mistake guys, thanks for pointing it out. As you can see, Artem fixed it for me. Sorry!

    I've really got my eye on the optimus 3D. I would just love to know an idea of U.S. release date and price.

  • DKasler

    The EVO got spanked. Its a shame all of HTCs new phones are only slight improvements on the last line. Nothing in the new lineup stands out... AT ALL We need a new HTC flag ship for sprint... SERIOUSLY.

    my N1 running CM7 just got 4293 on SunSpider... lol... take that, Tegra 2!

    How did the Galaxy line of phone perform so poorly? Maybe because they're stilll running 2.1 and don't have the JIT compiler?

    I'm running Cognition 3.04 on my Captivate and got 6150 on SunSpider.

    i hate iphones but how is the 3GS spanking the iphone 4

    • Lucian Armasu

      Same GPU, 4x less pixels.

      • ari-free

        true...atrix is the only phone that comes close to the iphone 4 resolution.

    You've gotta be happy with these results if you are LG.

    I'm just happy that my phone (G2) is in the top 10 on all those charts.

  • Chris

    So basically the OMAP is quite a bit better than the Nvidia Tegra 2? Wow.

    Was thinking of getting the Atrix, but that makes me unsure again ;)

    • ari-free

      atrix resolution is 540 x 960. LG Optimus 3D is 480x800 so it's harder to compare.

    The Nexus One is still performing pretty well for an one year old phone.

    *Hugs my myTouch 4g* I originally shuned you for being branded myTouch, but you've turned out so awesome. Can't wait to root you and see what you can really do! *pauses, realizes he's talking to his phone, puts it down, and walks away*

  • ari-free

    One thing is clear: WP7 isn't a performer. Look at Samsung Focus, LG optimus 7 and HTC Surround. Even the Blackberry Torch is faster. I think they made these WP7 phones because they 'had' to.

      ...and so much for the XBox phone idea. Microsoft should've given the project to the xbox team, not the zune team.
