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

    I have to express thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this particular incident. After looking out throughout the the net and getting things which are not powerful, I assumed my life was gone. Existing without the strategies to the problems you’ve sorted out as a result of your entire review is a critical case, and those that could have adversely affected my entire career if I had not discovered your web page. Your actual natural talent and kindness in controlling a lot of things was invaluable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a subject like this. I’m able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you so much for this professional and effective help. I won’t think twice to refer your web sites to any person who should receive direction about this subject matter.

    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.

    droid 2 hitting 2400 @ 1 ghz so that is sad thanks cm7

    • Anonymous

      Quadrant scores can be manipulated, it’s nothing more than a synthetic test that isn’t indicative of real world performance.

    • Anonymous

      Removing all the blur would speed it up so u getting 2400 is nothing go back to stock then see what you get. If Droid 3 was running cm7 it would be alot higher too.

    Still such a low linpack score? Or is thay still the first test?

  • Owlcitybelanova

    Quadrant – 2470
    LinPack : MFlops – 47.276
                  Time – 0.19 Seconds
                  Precision – 2.2

    3G EvDO Rev A Speed Test: Download – 2.2Mbps
                                               UpLoad – 0.75Mbps
                                               Ping – 35 Ms 

    Wi-Fi Speed Test (Fios lol) – Download – 30Mbps
                                              UpLoad – 7Mbps
                                              Ping – 4 Ms

    Not a bad start, 3G speeds were strangely good for me and i just ran a wi-fi reliability test to see how well the phone connects to my home network.

    No Audio/Keyboard lag like on the X2 
    Pentile looks better haha

    Haven’t found any yet

    • Anonymous

      Well if blur was removed like on your x it would be higher too.

  • User

    My friend got his today and got a score of 2156. Not sure what else he had running, this is his first android smartphone. Either way, the phone looked and felt great and was nice and smooth in the few minutes I played around with. Its just too bad its not 4G.
