Motorola ATRIX HD benchmark tests

Motorola ATRIX HD benchmark tests
Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to find mid-range smartphones packing dual-core processors, which is evidenced by the amount that have hit the scene of late – like the Samsung Exhilarate and Sony Xperia ion. Following in fashion, the Motorola ATRIX HD also wields a mighty processor of its own to distinguish itself as a top-notch competitor on AT&T’s ever extensive Android lineup. Naturally, we’ve seen some blazingly fast smartphones that pack quite a punch with various benchmark tests, so let’s see if the ATRIX HD’s 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM can follow suit as well.

Out of the box, there’s no arguing the speedy and instantaneous nature of the device’s performance. Exhibiting a near effortless performance with various operations, we love the fluidity and responsiveness we’re seeing with the smartphone. Even better, it maintains its high rate of performance with other processor intensive tasks – such as navigating through the homescreen with a live wallpaper. In fact, in our short time of checking out the ATRIX HD, it didn’t yield any instances of slowdown or lag. Therefore, we’re taking a liking to its real-world performance, which some people value more than anything else.

However, as soon as we started running the usual round of benchmarking tests with the handset, we find that the results aren’t that compelling. Well, it still manages to put up some respectable scores, but nothing that’s regarded groundbreaking. So with that, here are the results from our testing.

Because it's behind the SGS2 and Optimus 2X? Don't even mention Quadrant because it's terrible.

Like the article said, Its not ground breaking but it is where it should be... Once again you will not find a better phone than this for the price range people...stop being geeks and get real, this phone will perform really good in your day to day usage...

For everyone complaining about this phone it says in the artical it's a mid range phone. Just like the droid incredable the atrix name is not a high end phone any more. Ok maybe it's a high end phone for a year ago but that's how the smartphone thing works

Galaxy Nexus gets in the 2000's for Quadrant. That is a fantastic phone regardless of the ratings. This motorola for $100 is a great deal.

It has a 1.5 GHz Dual Core Qualcomm Snapdragon processorhttp://www.motorola.com/us/consumers/MOTOROLA-ATRIX%E2%84%A2-HD/MB886-ATRIX-HD,en_US,pd.html?selectedTab=tab-2&cgid=mobile-phones all the way at the bottom under technology

Yep an S4. I had to Google search for the info because the writer of this article felt it wasn't important enough to mention

link's broken... use a shortener, it doesn't like that comma in there. But it is somewhat sad that the phone did not preform very well. Hope they make a better version of it on VZW, just like they did with the Atrix -> Razr. And I'm also not a fan of those on-screen Android buttons.

i totally agree, screw the quad core processors and benchmarks, no need for that...give me a damn battery that last two days..i am so sick of charging these lte battery sucking phones that need charging twice a day just for one hour of searching emails...charge 3 hourse for one hour of real use...how pathetic!!!

It might not be the smartest when the your thinking of the processor but as you see most of the comments are against picking a phone based solely on its CPU power.

yeah but the HD is beyond a threshold to where it really doesn't matter that much anymore, the 3rd generation Snapdragon doesn't.

Are you nuts??? What do you think are their competitors? Nothing in the $100 range has had an S4 before, it scores very well o.O

I ran the bench multiple times and the highest i got was 4970, and the lowest i got was 4840. The guy who did this was clearly an idiot. CLEAR THE APPS BEFORE YOU RUN THE BENCH.

i've had debloated, performance tweaked ROM's on my MAXX HD go as high as 5800 in Quadrant.
