    Hey, what's everyone's Quadrant score on your phones? Mine's 1700 :p:


    Have Qualcomm acquired alien tech or something? What they're claiming is insane.....
    362... :sad:

    Still, considering how little I paid for my San Francisco and what I use it for, it's remarkable that it's up there with phones twice its price. :yep:

    I'm thinking of buying one of those just to play around with the ROM and then give it to my sis when I get bored with it...they're only £99 or so.

    I would have thought a techie like you would have a decent phone :p:

    If a test fails to run in some ways, you can get hugely exaggerated results. It happens with the SGS if I remember rightly.

    I'm getting 1139, on a Desire wih 2.2. Run it once or twice more for JIT to kick in and get a proper score, but what are you using, and how much have you overclocked it? I haven't seen anything released that should be getting those numbers.

    It is a decent phone. :p: it does everything I need of it and more, on a tight budget (and do remember, that I am still a poor student... but with financial commitments, so I really don't have hundreds of pounds to be splashing around on luxuries!) and it punches well above its weight in terms of features and performance. It's like the old E2200 Core 2 Duos, very cheap, but you could overclock the nuts off them to get high end performance for tuppence ha'penny. And because of its price, it's become very popular in the modding community.

    Every test I've done gives about the same results, ~1700. My mate on his DHD gets ~1900. Using 2.2 and I converted the filesystem to ext2 cos rfs is pretty awful, my score is about the average on the xda forums although some of the new firmware is reporting around 2100.

    Rooted SGS with lagfix:



    I couldn't believe the difference it made, Samsung really need to sort this out.

    Did you change the filesystem? I assume you did if you've done the lagfix?

    It's really bad how much difference it makes though :sigh:

    I rooted first, then installed "OneClickLagFix" from the android market. And yea, the SGS has some really nice hardware but Samsung have messed something up so it doesn't perform anywhere near it's maximum at stock.

    I haven't got one so I can't compare accurately right now, but from my experiences with iphones yes it is just as smooth. I have froyo (android 2.2) though, some report much better results with 2.1. Either way it feels 100 times better than before. I ran the benchmark just before rooting, and got 500-600.

    Yeah I was considering getting one. But I think I'll wait till summer next year since I'll be getting the Desire HD so having a tablet also might not be wise especially since it's unlikely they'll continue to support it.
