First benchmarks of the Juggernaut Alpha Windows Phone 8 handset show a 50% performance boost

0. phoneArena posted on 23 Jul 2012, 08:52

Juggernaut Alpha scored 151 points, leaving the Titan II with its 1.4GHz processor in the dust. Now, granted this is a dual-core handset most likely, as Windows Phone 8 brings support for multicore chipsets, but the benchmark comes to show that there will really be an improvement in performance over the current generation of Windows Phone Mango handsets...

WP will be very soon the best OS. Or maybe second best to iOS. Good job, MS!

No that goes to iOS, Im not even against iOS but it is very boring and stagnant compared to widgets and live tiles on Android/Wp7. I guess you could say Blackberry is boring but even they are changing there design iOS is left functional but virtually unchanged from other iterations.

WP8 is destined to beat out blackberry, only thing they don't have is real qwerty, but WP7 keyboard is already pretty great....

Hey I love my windows phone. The ecosystem is growing slowly maturely. Hopefully fast enough to be sustainable. However why do I sense so much hostility from the android camp. Just sit down with a WP device with an open mind and that doesn't mean spending 3 min at your local store. Remember Wp is solid yet like android and IOS it has its flaws. While WP is missing some big features now WP offers a far smoother experience as far as day to day usage performance.

No hostility towards WP at all. I'm actually rooting for them because i have a windows PC. Compatibility makes life easy :)

7Hello folks i hope things are going good for you all. I am not shocked the Windows "8" smart phones will work better than windows 7.5 or 7.8 smart phone One of the main reasons Why windows 7 series smart phones were not popular was because they used Lower Technology components than what the Iphone and android smart phones used.. I used to get angry when i saw internet Phones reviewers put a higher Tech Iphone or a high tech Android phone up against a Windows 7 series smart Phone because the Windows 7 series smart phone were using lower technology. to tell the truth the lower tech Windows 7 series smart sometimes worked pretty well up against the Higher tech androids or the Iphones a testimony of how good the software was written and how well the Windows 7 smart phones were made. thank God Windows "8" smart phone. do not have to have to use Low technology components to run them and will serve their users well.

you WP guys still dont understand the meaning of a mobilephone....

Mobilephone means that the users can use according to their needs... every OS provides the core facility at the highest.... so it all comes to user xperience....

I am from India.. & hardly anyone uses WP in here... even though most people know what it is.. they dont want UGLY UI on their hands... we want customization of our phones... like wallpaper... & no restrictions... like bluetooth file transfer, etc...

hence.. I say as of now Android stand on top of every thing that most of the users wants on the mobilephones...

I dont think WP will make any effect on Andriod or iPhone sales....
