3DMark Android Edition now available, let the benchmarking begin!
This version of 3DMark features the beautiful Ice Storm Extreme test, which will surely make your Android device sweat. It's available on Android and Windows right now, but it should soon come to iOS and Windows RT as well.
Tech site AnandTech has already put a bunch of devices to the test and by the looks of it, the Google Nexus 4 by LG is the current leader in the graphics tests, while the HTC One takes the cake in the physics-based tests.
You can download 3DMark for Android here!
Take a look at the results below!

Well, Nexus 5 is still packing the latest Qualcomm GPU, while not having a 1080p display.
And the result shows

yea pretty good but the HTC One still outperforms overall. The 1 frame a second loss is worth the more advanced physics.

The Nexus beat the One in graphics and One beat the Nexus in physics...I wouldn't say it necessarily outperforms it. Plus the Nexus 4 is almost 6 months old. Props to LG and google for making a beast that still competes.

I have a Galaxy Nexus and i get this message in the play store: "your device isnt compatible with this version"

How come note 2 scores only 9 points and s3 scores 26.7.....! while note 2 has better graphic chip than s3

The Note II uses the Mali 400 same as the Galaxy S III international version. The Mali is still a beast when it comes to graphics. They used the 400 in the S II back in 2011 so its still hanging in there.

ok Mali 400 on both....agreed
but why big discrepency in points on benchmark sheet?
12. imkyle (Posts: 1046; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)
That is odd as both are clocked at 440mHz and have the same screen resolution.

It has something to do with Mali 400 as even low end devices like xperia u uses that GPU.

My Nexus 4 may not be so obsolete as some have been thinking :)

I would like to see Galaxy S4 in that list.
Plz update your results with latest flagships added. Wanna compare One with them.

I'll assume the Optimus G performs the same as the Nexus 4 so I don't have to test it out myself. Cool.

Nexus 4 ($350) vs HTC ONE ($A LOT MORE)

Looks like this has a lot of bugs in it. Especially older phones scoring much higher than newer phones with better graphics chips.

283 mb is just a little too much for a benchmarking tool..
22. HDShatter (Posts: 1021; Member since: 17 Jan 2013)
283 mb is a lot more accurate than egypt and quadrant... That benchmark actually uses what modern phone games look like.

People saying that the benchmark is flawed because older devices score more than newer ones please take in mind the difference in resolution, that's why the s600 in the one is scoring almost the same as the nexus 4 because it is pushing full hd instead of hd, and the diference in the galaxy s3's score and the note 2's score is because the galaxy s3 in question is the Qualcomm s4 and not the exynos and it seems the adreno is better in that test.

your points makes sense, they should mention these intricate details, otherwise people would be biased....

The Note 2 is using an older GPU and a 32nm a9 quad core processor while the nexus 4 is using a quad core 28 nm partial a15 processor paired with a modern adreno 320 GPU. Of course it's going to beat the note 2.
