Benchmark Your CPU Performance with Mini CPU Integer Script

When it comes to device testing, there are two types of people on XDA. The first group blindly believes that one additional benchmark point makes a particular ROM or kernel the best, and they install it immediately. The other group takes benchmark results with a grain of salt, and take them into consideration with other performance metrics. Antutu or Quadrant are two of the most popular benchmark applications available for Android. However, there are many, many more options available for those looking to test specific aspects of their devices.

Not every benchmark requires one to have a fancy application with a nice user interface. XDA Recognized Developer broodplank1337 proves this with a benchmark that consists of simply a BASH script that can be executed from a Linux terminal. Broodplank1337’s script measures the CPU integer via ADB using the bc binary ported to ARM. To run the test, your device needs to have the binary installed. To do so, ensure that it’s rooted. The script will then push required libs and perform a number of tests to determine your CPU integer performance. The main advantage of the script comparing to other benchmark methods is its speed. The lack of a UI makes using it blazing fast.

The script can only be executed from a Linux PC, so don’t yell at us while trying to run it on Windows. There is a pretty good guide of setting up Ubuntu on virtual machine, so you can use it as well. You need to install the binaries in order to perform the test, so don’t forget to execute the command ./score –install before going straight to testing.

You can find the script by visiting the benchmark thread. So, what’s your score? Share your results in the comments below.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
