HTC Jetstream benchmark tests

HTC Jetstream benchmark tests
Not to be outdone by its ability to one day surf AT&T’s 4G LTE network, the HTC Jetstream is packing some serious hardware under the hood to allow it to smoothly fly through the skies with minimal effort. Blessed with a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 processor with 1GB of RAM, there’s no arguing that it has enough horsepower to execute most tasks without flinching. Still, we wonder how it stacks up against some of the elites in the market right now in the raw processing power department.

In the short time we’ve been checking out the Android 3.1 Honeycomb flavored device running HTC’s Sense UI for tablets on top, we’re pleased with the overall operation as it exudes the same responsiveness as others before it. From navigating through its 3D filled homescreen to opening apps, it doesn’t require much effort on the Jetstream’s part. However, it still exhibits the same choppy tendencies when navigating the homescreen in portrait.

First up on the chopping block is none other than running the Quadrant benchmark app to see how it stacks against some of the competition.  Obtaining scores between 1,829 and 2,243, they’re not all that mind-blowing and they’re actually on par to what we’ve seen with other Honeycomb tablets – like the Motorola XOOM and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 However, the highly prized Samsung Galaxy S II is still able to top all of them with some unbelievable scores. Furthermore, the Jetstream is able to push out a total score of 5,071 with the AnTutu benchmark test, which is indeed a respectable mark.

As much as we come to rely on benchmarking scores nowadays, we have to keep in mind that they don’t accurately portray the real-world experience we’d get by actually using the tablet. Right now, we’re content with its operation, but we’ll be testing out extensively to really get a feel for it.

the prime is a OMAP 4460 processor if the rumors are right. As far as pure power, no the SGS2 is the undisputed king at least until quad cores drop. However, the prime "may" be able to catch up to or even beat the SGS2's raw power with the fact that Android ICS is built with dual core support from the ground up and a bunch of tweaks, where gingerbread is not. Of course, any gains are only temporary until the SGS2 gets ICS then im sure the power divides will be right back to the same area as they are now. I want to see a tablet running an overclocked exynos. Sammy, why hasnt that happened yet!?!? lol

i wouldn't even do a real serious comparison between them until the Galaxy S II gets ICS but between the Prime running a newer, more efficient build of stock Android and it not using Motorola's drivers which i did some research on and found that maybe Motorola's drivers for the GPU may be hampering performance on the OMAP4 in their devices then the Prime might beat the Galaxy S II to begin with but we'll see for sure later on.

If it has the omap4 at 1.8 with stock android with lte with a 720P super amoled screen sorry sgs2 exynos isn't that big of a deal. The prime please take your crown.

14. CostcoHotDogs unregistered

well i'm sure if you clock the exynos to 1.8ghz and put ICS on it, then it will be areal battle for the prime.

the Prime will likely come out on top in the end if it comes to Verizon or even AT&T with LTE connectivity.

i actually get really good service with sprint in my area and so long as I can stream netflix HD without any hiccups- than I will be happy. I wonder if verizon had picked up the gs2 will the prime be as desired?

Lte speeds a great 1.8 processor 720p screen stock android ics its a super phone. SGS2 trembles in comparison.

19. CostcoHotDogs unregistered

Where did you get 1.8ghz from I thought it would be the TI omap 4460 running at 1.5ghz and a dated powerVR sgx540 from the sgs1 just clocked up. If anything I would say the prime is more closer related to a much better suped up bionic without as much flaws. With the 720 screen while it may look nice it will probably weigh down the system even more so I can't see how the prime will be able to make the SGS2 "tremble" your comment is dumb lol.

it'll pretty much be a higher clocked OMAP4430 like what's in the Bionic and the SGX540 as old as it is is still one of the best GPUs you can get. the only exception is whatever Samsung is using with Exynos. i'm not even sure what it uses. some kind of newer, super PowerVR i suppose. yeah, i'm totally not with the HD screens at this point. maybe i'll change my mind when i see em but qHD is plenty clear enough for me.

the prime is clocked at 1.5ghz, not 1.8. And even at 1.5 on the OMAP if they were on the same OS, the exynos would still be stronger at its current 1.2ghz. No matter what you do, the exynos is the stronger chipset. exynos are supposed to be clocked up as high as 1.8 before sammy dumps it for another chipset, so there is still plenty of power left to grow.

yeah, the more patient Android enthusiasts would've still waited i think. we're talking about a Nexus experience here. it's definitely worth waiting for on any carrier. i went ahead and got the Bionic though because Motorola is quicker with updates and the Bionic is already supported for ICS plus it's Motorola which i'm a big fan of. can't really go wrong with it.

OK BIOPHONE OK... rolling my eyes now... OK

Does anyone know what the new TI processor at 1.5 ghz will be on quadrant? Hope the prime can beat the gs2 saying verizon got robbed

both running gingerbread the omap may be close to the exynos at 1.2, but its not going to beat it. the power gains are not that big by overclocking. it might add 10-15% at absolute best.

i'll show you as soon as some CWM or an unlocked bootloader comes to the Droid 3 and Droid Bionic. o:

Lol not gonna happen. Never liked the original sgs but they really did well with my sgs2. First time I can truly say, this phone actually feels as smooth as the iphone.

Posts: 2160; Member since: May 10, 2010 is. Motorola said so and if they said so then it would just hurt them not to do it plus they've already done it for the Photon. it's just a matter of time.
