HTC Amaze 4G shows off its muscle in this video
The soon-to-be released HTC Amaze 4G for T-Mobile has starred in a video that shows off its HSPA+ 4G speeds as well as its processing muscle in the Quadrant benchmark test.

The HTC Amaze 4G has all of the makings of a flagship device. For starters, it has a 4.3-inch S-LCD display with a resolution of 960x540. Powering the handset is a dual-core 1.5GHz snapdragon processor and 1GB of RAM. It has an 8 megapixel camera that is sure to impress considering its similarities to that of the myTouch 4G Slide. It will be able to record video in full 1080p HD as well as a slew of other features. So how about those speed tests?

It faired decently in the Quadrant benchmark. In its best test it produced a score of 2477. That is not anywhere near the score put up by the variants of the Samsung Galaxy SII, but you can attribute that to HTC’s Sense UI and what many consider to be an inferior processor to that of the Exynos. As far as the speed test went on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network goes, you may like what you see. The Amaze 4G was capable of producing download speeds of close to 15Mbps. Not too shabby.

The HTC Amaze 4G is rumored to be releasing within the next couple of weeks. With specs and performance like this, it’ll be an incredibly hard smartphone to pass up. Check out the video and tell us what you think about it.

Epic 4G Touch beats this by far.

Exactly just goes to show you that its not how much you overclock the processor but what kind of processor you have to begin with. I have heard the sgs2 in general at 1.5 gets scores of over 7000.

Nice looking phone, and the speeds are amazing!!! Just wondering, is snapdragon not as good as other processors like Nvidia Tegra 2 or Exynos? because clocked at 1.5ghz i was expecting much higher scores. My atrix is clocked at 1ghz and gets scores between 2600 and 2900.

But of course i know quadrant cant determine how good a phone really is.

the snapdragon is the weakest dual core processor on the market right now.

snapdragon < tegra 2 < omap < exynos < exynos gen 2 (now rumored to make an appearance in the nexus prime.. wouldnt that be awesome)
