Beautified with the visual eye-candy experience of Sense 3.0 running on top of Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, we’re digging the responsiveness of the handset from the onset – in fact, it’s able accomplish most tasks without breaking a sweat. Though, its fluid movement while navigating across the homescreen is reduced when graphically intensive live wallpapers are used. Nevertheless, it’s nothing eye straining enough to cause us to scoff at it in a vehement tone.
Turning our attention over to Quadrant, the HTC Amaze 4G is able to pull up scores ranging between 2,228 and 2,658, which are nothing too commanding versus the competition – especially when we’ve been jaded to what we’ve seen obtained by the Samsung Galaxy S II. On the other hand, the AnTutu benchmark test gave the handset an overall score of 4,235. Granted it’s decent, the result is actually behind the heavy movers in the landscape.
Generally, we really need to take benchmark tests with a grain of salt, mainly because there are multiple factors that come into play that can skew the results. Above all, we’re most concerned about the handset’s actual real world performance, and by quickly gauging what we’ve seen in the short time, its shiny new processor seems to do justice – well, for now that is.
