HTC Flyer Benchmark Tests
In an age where dual-core processors are increasingly becoming a must-have with most tablets, especially when they intricately focus on various multimedia functions, some might be irked to find other tablets deciding to stick it out with single-core processors instead. Nonetheless, the HTC Flyer is able to step it up from the usual set of Snapdragon processors we find used by most smartphones since it clocks in at a mind blazing 1.5GHz.

Just quickly operating the tablet, it’s more than evident that speed is something that’s prevalent with the HTC Flyer when it comes to normal operations such as kinetic scrolling and navigation. Still, we’re sure there are some people out there that take pleasure in knowing what kind of benchmark scores it’s able to dish up.

Running the Quadrant benchmark app a few times, we’re able to get scores between 1,810 and 2,263, which is definitely pretty good versus some of the other smartphones relying on single-core processors. In contrast though, it’s still not as impressive when comparing it to the results we’ve seen put out by some of today’s high-end smartphones and tablets using dual-core CPUs. Additionally, we ran the AnTutu Benchmark test where it managed to pull in an overall score of 2,761, which again, is clearly behind the numbers put up by devices like the Motorola XOOM and LG Optimus 2x.

In any event, you still can’t judge a device merely on the figures it’s able to generate with these benchmark tests. Honestly, it still exudes a good amount of speed and responsiveness when it comes down to normal operation, which is undeniably what matters the most. On the other end of the spectrum though, we’re curious to see what kind of battery life it’ll be able to achieve.

I think that Desire HD is overclocked.

I played with the Flyer at Best Buy today. Very nice, very very responsive and I love the size of 7" tablets.

I'll rather go for a dual core tablet...
Flyer doesn't impress me much even with its Stylus (sold separately for 80 buks).
I don't see many people would prefer Flyer over samsung 8.9 tab which is coming out shortly.

For me, its a big NO for flyer.

Not very bad for single-core.

I'm test driving a Flyer right now and despite that its just a 1.5 ghz single core, this thing is very snappy and love the size for sure. It turns on very quickly and has no lag at all. So far I'm enjoying this unit, it will be a gift for my daughter, so I will see about the Samsung 8.9" but I do like that its less than a pound.

Also the battery life is pretty decent...I've been going a day in a half with pretty heavy use...
