Get an Early Glimpse of AnTuTu Benchmark 5!

There are two kinds of people here at XDA-Developers: those who focus on the looks and functionality of a device, and those who focus almost exclusively on raw power, performance, and how well it stacks up against other devices within the same tier. The latter group relies heavily on certain types of apps and modifications that boost performance (tweakers, kernels with various governors, etc.), as well as benchmarks to measure said performance benefits.

Since the introduction to Android, we have seen various benchmarks that have allowed us to see how tweaking settings affects the performance of a device. One of the biggest names in this field is without a doubt AnTuTu Benchmark. For those not familiar with this class of benchmark, apps like AnTuTu utilize a series of tests that measure graphical and arithmetic performance, as well as I/O read and write speeds and several other factors. These results are then compiled and given a numeric value in the form of a component and total scores.

AnTuTu has been around for a while and it is currently officially in version 4. But just like most things in the Android ecosystem, if the app intends on staying on top of this ever shifting world, it must evolve. With this in mind, XDA Forum Member AnTuTuLabs comes to us bearing good news for the performance-a-holics here. Version 5 is currently in its development stages, but it seems to have reached a point where it is safe enough to test drive. The new benchmark suite seems to include various goodies such as a single-threaded performance test, as well as a few types of graphics testing that will utilize the full potential of your 2D and 3D graphics chip. This then allows you to obtain a rather clear picture of how well your device compares to others.

The app promises to be a ground breaker, much like its predecessors. If you are interested in generating your own opinion regarding the app, please take a look at the OP of the thread and send an Email to the address provide. You should receive an early preview to the app shortly, courtesy of AnTuTuLabs. Needless to say, please report any bugs you may run into.You can find more information in the AnTuTu Benchmark thread.

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
