Tweak and Measure Performance With Benchmark and Tuning
From Quadrant to AnTuTu and from SetCPU to Voltage Control, there are plenty of benchmark and tuning applications available on Android. Most of them are reliable, although some benchmarks are a little outdated. Luckily, there are newer apps coming out all the time that help keep things up and running.
Enter Benchmark & Tuning. XDA forum member cgollner has developed this application to compete with the aforementioned tuning and benchmark apps by providing both services in one application.
The features are pretty standard and include:
This app is a must have if you want to run a quick but precise benchmark on your phone, without wasting your battery’s energy. The tested components will be your cpu, memory and input/output capabilities.
This app fully supports multi-core devices and gives you the possibility to choose between single-threaded or multi-threaded tests.
If you want, you can quickly set your cpu frequency and governor, instead of having to use other cpu app.
Submit your scores to our online database and compete with your friends! If you are offline you can also compare your score with stock devices’s scores.
Enjoy and have a good score!
With a really nice user interface and also having the awesome feature of being free, there’s no reason not to check it out.
If this app is something you’d like to check out, you can find additional details, including screenshots and the download link for the Android Market, in the original thread.
