OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
CF-Bench for Android Devices
XDA Recognized Developer Chainfire just launched a pre-release of CF-Bench for Android devices. According to the developer, the application is meant to give a more “stable” score compared to others. It supports multi-core and the option to test both native and Java code. As soon as it gets finished, it will be available on the market. However, for those willing to test a pre-release, you can find the apk file on the original thread. The app does not perform any GPU-based benchmarks.
Some device scores can be found for reference.
Please let the dev know what you think of it.

CF-Bench is my attempt at a benchmark (so far). It can handle as many CPU cores as you can throw at it, and performs native as well as Java benchmarks. It does not currently do any GPU-based benchmarks.
I know, there are lots of other benchmarks. But they don’t give me the numbers I’m personally interested in comparing. Few really support multi-core or test both native and Java code. This benchmark is also supposed to give a more “stable” score compared to some others.
Yes. This is not a finished app yet, which is why it is posted only here on XDA and not on Market yet.
One major thing is, it does submit the scores to my server, but it does not yet give you a “comparison” screen – I’m still working on some server-side things related to that. But releasing it here now will give me more data to work with.
Right now it also only allows you to do a full benchmark, not a custom (partial) one.

With XDA being a community of Android enthusiasts, it is not uncommon to see lots of bashing on Apple's iPhone here. There are different reasons for the hate, but we'd like to hear your number one reason for not going with the iPhone. Let us know your thoughts below!
If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
