Motorola DROID 4 benchmark tests

Motorola DROID 4 benchmark tests
Considering it brought Android to the next level, it’s rather surprising to know that Motorola’s DROID-only family was never known to push the envelope in the processing department, but rather, it had the perfect balance of ingredients to cohesively justify the beauty of an Android device. As we’ve seen consistently, each new DROID smartphone coughed up the iterative improvements to keep each one in good light with the competition. Continuing the trend, the Motorola DROID 4 boasts a 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor that’s coupled with 1GB RAM – that’s actually double the RAM amount of its predecessor.

Something we naturally expected to see out of the box, the Motorola DROID 4 appears to offer a responsive performance with most operations. However, there’s this strange ghosting effect happening as we’re navigating around the homescreen. Who knows if it’s related to its processor or display, but it’s prominent enough for us to take notice right from the onset. Regardless of that, the handset continues to deliver the same smooth performance when even navigating across its homescreen with a live wallpaper, but it’s very weird to find pinch gestures greatly exaggerated by choppiness within the gallery. As a whole, we’re content by its overall speediness, even more when its interface is packed with tons of 3D effects, animations, and transitions.

So how does the Motorola DROID 4 fare out of the box with its benchmark scores? Well, they’re nowhere close to being stellar on paper, but instead, it produces numbers that are admirable enough to keep itself in good company with other highly-prized devices. Taking into account that its CPU isn’t anything ground-breaking over other things, we’re nonetheless humbled by the early results. As usual, it’s ultimately going to come down to how it’ll perform with real-world implications – so with that, here are the results from our benchmark tests:

  • Quadrant: 2,535 to 2,955
  • AnTutu: 6,031
  • Linpack: 53.973 MFLOPS at 3.13 seconds
  • Vellamo: 1,063
  • Neocore: 58.7 FPS
