Beautified with the visual eye-candy experience of Sense 3.0 running on top of Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, we’re digging the responsiveness of the handset from the onset – in fact, it’s able accomplish most tasks without breaking a sweat. Though, its fluid movement while navigating across the homescreen is reduced when graphically intensive live wallpapers are used. Nevertheless, it’s nothing eye straining enough to cause us to scoff at it in a vehement tone.
Turning our attention over to Quadrant, the HTC Amaze 4G is able to pull up scores ranging between 2,228 and 2,658, which are nothing too commanding versus the competition – especially when we’ve been jaded to what we’ve seen obtained by the Samsung Galaxy S II. On the other hand, the AnTutu benchmark test gave the handset an overall score of 4,235. Granted it’s decent, the result is actually behind the heavy movers in the landscape.
Generally, we really need to take benchmark tests with a grain of salt, mainly because there are multiple factors that come into play that can skew the results. Above all, we’re most concerned about the handset’s actual real world performance, and by quickly gauging what we’ve seen in the short time, its shiny new processor seems to do justice – well, for now that is.
- Display 4.3" 540 x 960 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S3, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1730 mAh(6.00h talk time)
so.... samsung must have did something to get scores of +3000 on the tmobile version of the galaxy s2 because it doesn't make sense how this only gets 2300 while they both use the same cpu?? To some it up the sgs2 benchmarks are a lie!!!!!

Its true what you said, but its cause of sense. Sense is an awesome UI, but it takes its toll on the overall performance. But still think the scores are too low. Although this is clocked at 1.5ghz, you see phones like the Atrix clocked at 1ghz and get surpringly much higher results on both. on Benchmark it gets between 2500 and 2800, with higher results on rare ocasion, while on Antutu it gets anywhere from 4,500 to 4900. But i think its still a good phone sense makes things look so beatiful.

software must marry hardware. the samsung galaxy s 2 nd iphone 4 are perfect examples of that

you lost me at iphone 4...that thing had its hands full with the EVO 4G, it's smooth enough because of the operating system but in actual performance it won't touch any high-end android device launched within the last 8 months or so. Hell some of the mid-range androids will outperform it

Well well. First of all thats benchmark need to be upgraded first to test the power whitout using the UI. Why? well i found out on my htc desire hd thats the ui is turned off when in-game so basicaly in real world usage the Sense is not really a problem. Then as some other said the benchmark is not made to take into account the new asynchronous cores management. Another thing is the résolutions i found out also thats higher resolution phone will get lower test score. So overall Quadrant is not a good benchmark lol.
