Finally a cross-platform benchmark app suite: Basemark OS II lets you pit iPhones vs Androids vs Windows Phones


Rightware is finally out with its long-rumored cross-platform suite of benchmarks that allow easy comparison between iPhones, Androids and Windows Phones.

The test includes CPU and graphics stress tests, memory performance measurements, browser benchmarks, as well as exotics like battery testing, and even camera speed tests in cooperation with Sofica. As per Teemu Uotila, the benchmark department head at Rightware:


Some of the features, like breaking down the performance in each subcategory, or the battery tests, aren't available in the free version, but for consumer purposes the ability to pit, say, the iPhone 5s vs Note 3 vs Lumia 1020, in one and the same benchmark program, is certainly a novel and welcome development. You can download Basemark OS II from the respective app store, and it's great that Windows Phone is finally in the mix on a good benchmark app.

This is great, except I don't trust benchmarks anymore... Save it for camera speed and stuff like that of course.

My guess for Top 3: iPhone 5S, Lumia 1520 and Nexus 5 or Z1 Compact, not in particular order. Note 3 is gonna be high, too.

The Xiaomi Mi3 with the AB variant of the SD800 should take the cake.

I have the photo links which proves that top3 overall is: 1# Nokia Lumia 1520 =1048 2# iPhone 5S =940 3# Nexus 5 = 878, though 1 user said that his Note 3 made 1002 overall and then it would be #2 after Nokia Lumia 1520.

A cross-platform benchmarking suite is long overdue. Nothing like an apples-to-apples comparison. Is PA going to adopt Basemark OS II for its reviews?

Click on the first link "Run Benchmark" and it runs all tests also in the free version. That link "Choose Tests" works only in the paid version. My Nokia Lumia 1520 scores: pic.twitter.com/m10yGFYke0

On my 1520 I got. overall... 966 system... 1034 memory... 1231 graphics... 1229 web..........558.... The memory is what surprise's me.. Why is it so high❔ But, I'm not surprised by the web number.. MS needs to do better with IE11 in WP8.1.. The others have much more HTML5 support.. Nevertheless, I'm pleased by what it scored... But, that dang Nexus is a beast, at 1027.11.. A few guys got higher scores on their 1520's like over 1030, but I couldn't.. Pretty cool stuff..
