With the EVO moniker in place, there’s no denying that the HTC EVO 3D is going to be one blistering Android powered smartphone, but even more when it’s packing a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 processor with 1GB of RAM and an Adreno 220 GPU. Adding to the fact that it’s offering the Android 2.3 Gingerbread experience with Sense running on top of it, we’re surely going to be greeted with one 3D intensive experience from head to toe.
Quickly perusing various things with the handset, it’s undoubtedly
responsive with its operation – and the experience is tastefully complemented
with some tricked out looking 3D effects and transitions. Of course, it comes
across as one fast handset, but to give us a general idea of how it compares
to some of the competition, we just need to run a couple of quick benchmark
tests to see where it stands.
Running the Quadrant benchmark test first, we manage to get scores ranging between 1,842 and 2,230. Indeed respectable for a dual-core processor, we’ve actually seen better results with devices like the LG Optimus 2x and Samsung Galaxy S II. Secondly, we ran the AnTutu benchmark test where it puts up a total score of 3,210. Again, it’s a respectable mark, but it doesn’t blow anything out of the water compared to the Motorola XOOM and LG Optimus 2x.
Seeing all the glitzy looking effects in play with Sense, we’re still nonetheless pleased with the HTC EVO 3D’s performance so far. Naturally, it always comes down to the real-world experience to fully gauge how well a device executes – and in the case of the EVO 3D, it’s doing a good job so far. Regardless, we’ll be putting it through some further testing to see how it comes out in the end.
