Even though we debunked the notion of always having to perform benchmark tests to see the true capabilities of a device, especially after the whole Samsung fiasco which revealed that the Korean Giants had prepped the S4 to perform better on the tests, they are still considered by many as the only means of judging a phone. While we respect everyone’s opinion and all, we would like it if people would just focus more on the real capabilities of a device instead. In any case, this article isn’t to rant about any of that but to inform all those benchmark lovers that AnTuTu, one of the most revered benchmark apps for Android has just gotten an update.
The update has brought many new changes to the app which are topped off with a complete UI overhaul. Instead of the old look, you will see everything in tabs testing, ranking, and device information. Now not only does the app look way better, it also can determine scores to better support faster devices.
The full change log is as follows:
- New designed professional smart device benchmark matrix
- Benchmark to User Experience added
- Improvement to benchmark algorithms
- New designed GUI for easy and simple operations at user side
- New register system for each individual user
The new registration system isn’t mandatory before you ask and can be skipped if you want to stay under the radar at all times. Personally, the one thing that has impressed me the most in this update is the brand new UI, which has really made the results easier to read. That being said, there are some problems with the new app as well as many users are reporting that the test results suggest that the Nexus 7 2013 is running on a Tegra 3 chip. Anyhow, you can grab the app from the link below if you haven’t or have disabled the auto update option for your apps.
