For starters, its performance out of the box is very similar to other recent smartphones from HTC’s camp – like the HTC Sensation 4G, EVO 3D, and Amaze 4G. Even though its processor speed is clocked down from what’s found with the HTC Amaze 4G, it’s able to still deliver a responsive platform experience with very little evidence of slowdown or lag. However, turning on a live wallpaper to test out its strength, we do witness just a subtle about of jerkiness with its movement – though, it’s nothing detrimental at all.
Moving onto the nitty gritty, our first task at hand was to see what numbers it could pull out running the Quadrant benchmark tests. Unsurprisingly, it boasts scores that are expected, but nothing mind-blowing when you compare them against the competition – say like the Samsung Galaxy S II. In fact, we’re able to get scores ranging between 1,500 and 2,094 running the test a few times over. Granted that they’re nothing to brag about, it’s consistently hitting the 2,000 mark on the average. Meanwhile, running the AnTutu benchmark test, it’s given an overall score of 4,571, which again isn’t mesmerizing – but rather, something that’s typical from what we’ve been seeing with other HTC smartphones of late.
Beyond the numerical scores that benchmark scores provide, we’re accepting of the HTC Vivid’s performance out of the box – mainly because it’s real-world execution appears to be in standard high-end fashion for an HTC smartphone.

Not really impressive at all. I can score 4905 with my first generation Atrix (un-rooted and everything).

Expected lower than the GS2. More interested in camera performance and how this monsters screen performance is. It should be fairly seamless in it's real life operations. My Wife wamts a great, huge monster screen and a camera with the best quality. If this doesn't deliver on those two fronts, what does it really offer? The AT&T LTE network will not kick into high gear until next year, and the LTE offerings will come fast and furious soon. The Vivid needs stand out on something more than a near non-existing 4G signal to get some love.

If she wants a big screen and good camera, the sgsII skyrocket should be her choice, but I would rather have this. Oh, and I can name a stand-out feature this phone has: 60 fps 1080p video recording!

Seriously what is wrong with HTC sticking with Qualcomm SoC? It's obviously outclassed by every other dual core offering but they just won't switch over to ti omap

In terms of real world execution (smoothness and whatnot): Exynos > OMAP 4430 > NVIDIA Tegra 2 > Snapdragon S3 The older architecture is to blame for this. Watch the T-Mobile GS2 review and compare it to the AT&T version. The AT&T one is much smoother, while the T-Mo version, using the Snapdragon, lags ever so slightly just scrolling around the interface. Touchwiz is by no means a heavy skin either. I don't think HTC is friendly with Texas Instruments, or not anything like the way they are with Qualcomm. It's a bit odd that Sense is the most graphically taxing skin out of all the OEM, but HTC decides to use the worst SoC.

The Sense UI is to blame for this low scores against SGSII skyrocket using the same Qualcomm dual core. Sense is serious resource hog bogging down the performance of phone.
