October 27, 2014
A better benchmark for smart phones and tablets
Our new PCMark for Android benchmark is now available to download from Google Play. PCMark for Android is a free app without ads, in-app purchases, or other restrictions.
- Measure the performance of the whole device, not isolated components.
- Tests based on everyday activities, not abstract algorithms.
- Scores reflect real-world performance, not unachievable maximums.
- Tests use real applications and native APIs whenever possible.
- See every test in action instead of watching progress bars.
- Our guide tells you exactly what is being measured and how scores are calculated.
This first release of PCMark for Android includes the Work benchmark, which can be used to measure both performance and battery life. Use Work to see how well your device handles everyday tasks such as browsing the web, watching videos, working with documents, and editing photos.
PCMark for Android also shows you how your device's CPU clock frequency, CPU average usage, temperature and battery charge level changed while the benchmark was running.
With detailed hardware monitoring, you'll see how newer devices are able to run the benchmark using lower CPU clock frequencies than older, less powerful devices, which can, in turn, lead to improved battery life.
You can already compare the performance and battery life of many of the latest and most popular devices in the app and on our website.
