DROID3 Gets Benchmarked, It Was Just a First Run (Updated)

Update:  Just like we assumed, that benchmark was a first run.  We’ve received another batch that were done after the device warmed up a bit and the results are much more favorable.

I’m not going to start making excuses for the DROID3 yet, but I’m certainly hoping that this was a first run after its first boot up because this is embarrassing.  In the days of phones with dual-core processors (this phone being one), we’ve got to at least break 2000 on a Quadrant benchmark.  After all, single core devices that have been overclocked can certainly eclipse the 1700 mark.  To see what real benchmarks look like, you’ll want to check out this post we ran for the Galaxy S II and the DROIDX2.

To be fair though, we know that most benchmarks mean nothing and we also haven’t handled the device yet to run it through the DL set of tests.  So I’ll try to hold back too many opinions, but what I will do though, is ask that all of our readers who received D3s early, post up their top benchmarks. This is not exactly what we were hoping to see from an OMAP4 – especially with the DROID Bionic likely running one.

Linpack score after the break.  

Cheers ShadowOfAnAndroid!

  • I have to show some appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from this particular difficulty. Because of browsing throughout the the net and seeing strategies which were not pleasant, I believed my life was done. Living without the presence of solutions to the problems you’ve resolved by way of the post is a crucial case, as well as ones which may have badly affected my entire career if I hadn’t encountered the website. Your actual understanding and kindness in controlling every part was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a step like this. I can also at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for the professional and result oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to endorse your web sites to any person who needs to have guidance on this situation.

    “DROID DOES?” I don’t think so… not with this phone by MOTO!

  • I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

    If you compare D3 out of the box to various phones with custom ROMs, kernels, etc., it will appear to underperform. You can overclock and trick out a phone until its quadrant scores are much higher than when it originally shipped. One of the ROMs I used on Thunderbolt actually had a utility that allowed you to boost your quadrant scores artificially. You can also overclock a kernel to the bleeding edge and get a benchmark before the phone shuts down. Benchmarks can be played, and even when there is none of that going on, they tend to measure a narrow spectrum of performance, which may or may not be relevant to real-world performance.

    Not making excuses, nor do I need to. 2500 quadrant out of the box is a solid quadrant for a dual core at 1 GHz. I would expect a dual core to do little if any better than a single core on a single-threaded benchmark, but much better on a multi-thread benchmark. I expect RAM size and speed to play a role, as well as GPU, although their role in user experience may be more or less significant than the benchmark suggests. Finally, operating system and skin are likely to have a dramatic impact on your perception of the phone, but less so on the benchmark.

    I don’t expect the D3 to outdo the SGS2 for a variety of reasons, but I would like it to beat down the X2. The OMAP and DDR2 should position it ahead of the Tegra.

    • They both have ddr2.

      • Anonymous

        No… I’m pretty sure you’re wrong. The DX2 has DDR. The D3 has DDR2 because it is required by the OMAP processor.
        Maybe you mean both of their processors are dual-core?

  • Matthew A Nicholson

    Got mine today, writing this on it in fact. New blur is okay, but the entire system got way more snappy as soon as I switched launchers to ADW…I should bench…

    • Anonymous

      sweet. I think the new Blur is actually pretty cool. I like the shading on the widgets and flexibility. The text messaging is pretty cool and they added Bold, italics, and under line. It does not seem to be slowing it down allot either. How is the memory doing, do you still have plenty left for multi-tasking?

  • Anonymous

    You can have a high quadrant but not enough power. Power is what a phone can do without slowing down. Speed is what a phone can do one thing at a time. You need power for multi-tasking. Droid 1 owners know this. My OG Droid can do 1577 quads but when it comes to multi-tasking it slows down and can start lagging depending how many things i’m trying to do.

    • Anonymous

      You need RAM to do good multitasking. The problem with the Droid 1 is that we only have 256 RAM so Android closes apps that we want open. It has to restart services all the time that phones with more RAM can keep open.

  • Maybe its because Motorola uses unimaginably shitty GPU’s and companies like Samsung and HTC use Adreno’s and the like. I bet the GPU in this thing is hardly better or maybe even the same as in my X.

    • HTC sensation/evo3d benchmark the same or lower than this. They are complete turds of dual cores.

      What are you talking about?

      HTC evo 3d @1.8ghz only ran ~2900, It’s what a stock atrix does at 1.0ghz

    • Go to smartbench gaming and see what Samsung Exynos and Adreno does…….lol

    • Leroybrute30

      I am consistently getting 2800 to 3100 highest being 3103 on my stock dx2. 4790 on antutu. Why is mine running so high? I once in a while get a 2500 but not much.

    • This phone has the same GPU as the Nexus S 4G and many other Samsung devices…  Yes this is the first time Moto has upgraded from the PowerVR SGX530 to the 540 (not their fault – limited by the OMAP platform).  So some the the other phones had a slower GPU, but this phone has a good one.

    • T Hall

      There is no basis for this at all. Moto is known for the high end components in their devices…

      Also it is quite possibly the first processor to get the Netflix HD certification.

    I’m sure it will do a lot more in the right hands. Run smart bench instead.

    But why would anyone think omap and qHD would produce high benchmarks???

    • Because OMAP’s are epic. The PowerVR GPU’s suck though.

      • Anonymous

        Uh…..no.  PowerVR has the best gpus available.

      • you need to remember you are running a much higher resolution with the QHD to the tune of about 26% higher than a 800 x 480 resolution screens

    This has to be a bad benchmark, because my Droid2 can kill that.

    I have a D2 running CM7 and overclocked to 1300/1000/800/400 and I recently got a 2682 Quadrant and a 21 Linpack.   I’ve always found Linpack to be the best Android benchmark.  For example my D1 got 5 on Linpack out of the box, 9 once it got to Froyo, D2 got 13 out of the box, and 21 with all the good stuff I have done to it, and those numbers are very indicative of the devices’ comparative responsiveness (not a linear trend obviously, but you know what I mean).

  • Once again, people are putting too much faith in benchmarks to gauge a device.

    Post up antutu benchmarks, it’s much better than quadrant.

  • Anonymous

    Run Quadrant three times before you report the actual score.

  • Dude, terrible pictures.  They are too blurry to read anything, especially the first one.

    • Hard to believe. no way this phone would have a score like that. if so , im a little worried since im a, soon to be Bionic owner.

    Another dissapointment from MOTO…

        Low score, pentile screen, locked loader, shall I continue..not new, have been a contributer. As a former owner of the D1, D2, Eris, incredible, tbolt, charge, and still went back to my X, I expected more from the flagship phone.

          The score looks better now. Still unhappy about this phone. I would have really preferred this phone had it been packed with some better stuff. 4G, better screen, drop the number row and make the keys bigger, unlocked bootloader.  

          Am I asking too much? Yes. But considering that the Droid 1 was truly a remarkable phone when it launched, I expected it’s sibling to do the same. I am looking for a phone that won’t make me regret buying it 2 months later when something else comes out. My D1 would have lasted me the full 2 years had it not broken. I personally went from the D1 to D2 to DX to Charge and back to DX. My wife went from Eris to Incredible, to Tbolt, and now she is on the Charge.

          Slap the Samsung screen of the Charge on this D3, a 4G LTE radio, make a bigger version of the original keyboard, make it easy to root or unlock,  and I would be as happy as a pig in mud for the next 2 years. That is what I was hoping for out of the newest bad boy on the block. 

        • where is my bionic

          What in the world does someone need 7 phones in roughly 2 years for?

            Variety? For me, the majority was spent 1yr with D1, second year DX. I live
            in a strange part of my city and the coverage is spotty. My wife prefers HTC
            but we kept having to send them back because they kept dropping connection
            and calls. MOTO has a superior antenna so I never had that problem. She went
            Eris, Incredible, Thunderbolt. We ultimately dumped that for a Charge.
            Apparently, it does not suffer from the same problem in my area. VZW
            actually did a site survey with engineers just for my wife’s problems. No
            more HTC for us.

            I’m on my 4th phone in a year and a half and the answer is easy.

            Many people bought a Droid 1 when it came out. We fell in love with it and all of the amazing things it could do. All the roms and customizing and we got hooked!

            When the next Droids came out we wanted more power and larger screens… And everything would have been great but there were bumps in the road… (Locked bootloaders).

            Sadly the phones are getting better but nothing yet has lived up to what could have been.

            This is why I am currently on the T-Bolt and loving it…it can be fully unlocked. And I’ve never had an issue with my phone like so many.

    People are reporting much higher Quadrant scores in various forums. Between 2200 and 2600. Was that a single or multi-thread Linpack? I find 42 hard to believe.

  • Alan Paone

    Isn’t that linpack like 3 times the droid2’s score?

    • Yes but it is half that of the Droid X2 with a Tegra 2.  This processor was expected to outperform the Tegra 2.  So… It could be the UI Formerly Known as Blur is causing the slowdown, or it could be that the benchmark tools are not configured to run properly on OMAP4 devices.  We have seen this in the past with both Linpack and Quadrant having issues with certain TI OMAP3 processors as certain phones were released.  This may very well be the case here since this is the first CDMA OMAP4430 processor.  Lets hope anyway.

    New MotoBlur FTW! Um, yeah…

  • womp womp

  • GotSka81

    Actually, this would be great if it’s true…it’ll make it easier for me to not get one…I’m trying to hold out for the GS2!

    • people rely way to much on these scores. I’m more worried about what the phone actually has and can do rather than some number that will not benefit me whatsoever in the long run.
