T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide benchmark tests

Posted: , by John V.


T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide benchmark tests
Utilizing the same dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that’s found with the HTC Sensation 4G, it’s a safe bet to say that we can expect a resounding platform experience with the upcoming T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide as well. There’s no kidding about it, the handset’s photo-taking capabilities are taking much of the spotlight, but interestingly enough, you can’t hide the fact that it’s all available thanks partly to its peppy processor.

Much like most other high-end devices we’ve been checking out of late, we decided to run a couple benchmark apps to see where the handset is placed amongst the competition. As much as some people gauge performance purely by raw benchmark scores, others simply grade things based on the actual platform experience, which of course is always going to be a good indicator on how specific handsets perform in the real world.

Running the Quadrant benchmark test first, the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide is able to put up scores between 1,914 to 2,002 – though, it broke the 2,000 mark only once during our testing. Moreover, the handset is able to achieve an overall score of 4,210 with the AnTutu benchmark app, which is actually better than the score put up by the HTC Sensation 4G. Obviously, the scores are nowhere close to being mind-blowing, but considering that HTC Sense 3.0 is an undeniably processor intensive experience with its glitzy presentation, our actual results aren’t all that surprising.

Regardless, the platform experience so far on the handset is pretty tight and responsive, but we’ll be installing a few different things and using the handset normally like we do on an everyday basis to gauge its level of performance.

the Sense 3 experience is no doubt good ran by the MSM8660 (i believe) it's still not without lag though unlike what a few other handsets are exhibiting and those handsets created a new standard for me before the Sensation and the EVO 3D even came out.

also, Benchmark scores matter more to me because running the platform is one thing, running the platform and playing an extensive game or using an extensive app is another, Benchmarks give you a better look at how well the handset will run in the most extreme circumstances.

Dude for someone who are on a tech site a lot you have no idea what your talking about. There is no lag in both of those phone. Don't tell me that you have use them because you have not. The MSM8660 only use 1 core at a time until a second is need that is why the score is so low.. Before Antutu updated their program it was only scoring around 2500.

well get ready because i'm telling you i've used both of these phones. i'll admit i've only found evidence of lag on the Sensation. the MSM8660 uses dual" Scorpion" cores which is a Cortex-A8 based processor so processors like the OMAP4 and the Exynos that uses A9 will always do better whatever way you look at it. the scores of the Qualcomm aren't significantly lower than the competition so it's logical to assume that the other dual-core processors behave the same way when they're benchmarked so the benchmarks probably show the performance of the dual-core phones using a single one of their cores. do your homework on ALL of the competition before you try to defend one chipset over the other.

False. Qualcomm dual cores are asynchronous. So the cores operate at different speeds.
Exynos is synchronous So both cores always run at the same speed.

well then i wonder who's got the right idea...
i don't even care about how they work. Qualcomm has both user experience and bad benchmark scores counting against them so i think it's pretty safe to say the MSM8660 blows.

Do you even know how benchmark work? Or how the score are calculated? I call BS on you even using a MSM8660 device for more then 1 hour. Asynchronous help to save battery life. You're someone that only look the score like any fanboy. And think the higher the score or spec the better but you don't understand how the anything work.

does it matter if i know how it works when i can obviously tell which one is faster by using it and seeing the scores? i'm pretty sure benchmarks aren't shown everywhere for everyone to guess why they came out they way they came out if they weren't satisfied with them. keep your battery life, i prefer optimal processor speeds. ;P

also i apologize if you're not good with English for whatever reason or the other but you REALLY need to work on your grammar guy...

The dual core scorpion core is no stronger than a single core hummingbird processor that has been converted to ext4 file system like that in Gingerbread.
Its nice, but its the walmart of dual core chips.

Ya there is no way, even if you look at benchmark scores it will tell you otherwise. Common sense. The fact that the evo 3D can run flash better then my Nexus S 4g tell me otherwise

lol, ive had my galaxyS benchmark over 3000 on quadrant. Snapdragon dual core hasnt even hit that yet. And the graphix side of the comparison the hummingbird always outdoes it. Run the nenamark test on a galaxyS against the DCSnapdragon. You will be suprized at who the winner is. Look at the apps list of highest phones and u will see galaxyS phones all over the top of the list.

Dual cores are better on the internet than single cores because they can load more than 1 thing at a time. As far as performance goes, my hummingbird moves the internet smooth as butter.. flash playing and all.

Calling BS on your 3000. I have a Nexus S 4g and overclock 1.4 gHz and only been able to get 2600. Do you realize Qualcomm dual cores are asynchronous right? There are video of the snapdragon dual core and the hummingbird running the same benchmark and the snapdragon finish first but score low why is that?

has pretty impressive benchmark scores.. i can only wonder how its going to perform when rooted and overclocked :)
