Android at Arms (legal news)
A week ago, I posted a head-to-head comparison/buyer's guide of the Asus Transformer Pad (TF300), Transformer Prime (TF201), and Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700). The most upvoted comment: how is the internal storage performance? So I sat down to benchmark 6 devices.... and with the help of the team, ended up benchmarking 11:
- HTC One S (S4)
- HTC One X (T3)
- Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx
- Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.1 - Jelly Bean)
- Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.0.4 - Ice Cream Sandwich)
- Samsung Galaxy S III (S4)
- Asus Transformer Pad (TF300)
- Asus Transformer Prime (TF201)
- Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700)
- Nexus 7 (Android 4.1 - Jelly Bean)
- Toshiba Excite 7.7
