HWBOT Prime for Android Update #6! StrategosSan brings HWBOT Prime for Android record to France: 3404 PPS with Transformer Pad Infinity 2

It's been a little less than a week since we officially published HWBOT Prime on the Google Play Store and so far it seems the benchmark is doing quite well. Of course we are still ironing out the bugs - this is our first Android application after all. The most interesting aspect of the Android benchmark is of course going to surface once we have our dedicated Android rankings up and running. In the mean time, I've quickly pulled some numbers from the database and build the very first HWBOT Prime for Android Top-10 table.

From the looks of it, the Xperia Z1 LTE is a prime (pun intended) choice for HWBOT Prime. Tequilaomega from Austria is the current number one on Android, followed by Hiwa from Switerland and FqqTBawL from Australia. Cool!

// UPDATE 14-04 // Hiwa from Switzerland tops the charts with new record!

// UPDATE 15-04 // We spend the day at the Mobilegeeks offices in Taipei, Taiwan playing with a whole bunch of smartphones. The most interesting devices are without any doubt the ones of the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi. Their Mi-3 features the Snapdragon 800 and is the only device of its kind hitting consistently over 2800 PPS. But the most impressive score of the day came from the Hongmi Note. With 8 cores clocked at 1.4GHz, the smartphone/tablet scores nearly 3000 PPS! That's the highest we've seen for an Android device so far. The most interesting part: this device costs not even EUR €100!

// UPDATE 16-04 // Looks like the competition is sparking up! There are a couple of Note3 scores in, but the top score goes to the Tegra Note P1640 featuring the Tegra4 SoC.

// UPDATE 17-04 // CMDR_Sol from Russia took the lead with a Snapdragon 800 D920 Nexus 5 at an amazing frequency of 2.8GHz. Looks like the battle is on for HWBOT Prime on Android!

// UPDATE 18-04 // In the ever so fast changing world of mobile devices, the HWBOT Prime for Android ranking is updated ever day. This morning I found FTLAUDMAN's Nvidia Shield topping the rankings with a quad-core Tegra4 at 1.9GHz. Who will be the first to OC the Shield and push the record even higher?

// UPDATE 21-04 // The top score keeps going up! StrategosSan - yes, the extreme overclocker - pulled out his Transformer Pad Infinity 2 and set a new top score of 3404 PPS. Interesting is that the hardware is fairly similar to that of the Shield, but the score is about 10% higher. Optimizations? Or perhaps just a less bloated operating system. Who can challenge this score? Good luck!

Cool! Now let's see how we can improve hardware detection!

Belgium Massman says:

Xiaomi Mi3 isn't doing too bad either ...

I always get an error on my note 3... doesn't support this file so it can't submit.... :(

Belgium Massman says:

Doesn't support this file ?

United States l0ud_sil3nc3 says:

Yup I posted the same thing as Joe, the Note 3 data file doesn't upload for whatever reason.

Belgium Massman says:

Ok, added to backlog!

Slovenia tiborrr says:

Which genius replaced a link to Hwbot Prime in Benchmark Downloads to the one that links to Google App store? Please provide the download link for the latest version.

Belgium Massman says:

Finally got the Xiaomi phones to work with HWBOT Prime. Man are those devices awesome! The Mi-3 is about €250 and is the only Snapdragon based device I saw running 2265MHz consistently. All the others were throttling down and score 50-100pts lower. And that Hongmi is less than EUR €100 ... crazy Chinese manufacturers!

Curious to see what PVS bin those devices are?

dmesg | grep PVS

or

dmesg | grep acpuclk

As for the benchmark, not sure what I am doing wrong but on both my ATT Note 3 and Nexus 5 I get the same error, stating the data file is corrupted or the file type is not supported. Is this simply the device not being added in to the database? Or is it because of a third party kernal?

The Note 3 (4.3) is bone stock and the Nexus (4.4) is rooted running FKU for all tuneables. Seems 4.3 is much stronger than Kit Kat.

The app fails to sync with HWBOT when there are non utf8 chars or funky xml in the api communication. I'm making a fix now.

Fixed you are a life saver!

Great job hwbot:)

United States FTLAUDMAN says:

My Nvidia Shield gets 3107 stock. Is this Android phones only? Apparently the app doesn't recognize the device so I can't submit it. Either way, this is a fun addition!

United States FTLAUDMAN says:

Just FYI, if the Nvidia Shield goes to sleep with the HWBot app open then it can't be woken up. v1.03 on 4.4.2.

Belgium Massman says:

Hm, it's possible the Shield is not in our database yet. Let me check if I can add it easily :) As for the waking up problem, I'll add that to the bug backlog. Thanks for reporting!

GENiEBEN says:

Ok, I'm having a hard time getting the scores online with devices. Last two that wouldn't work: * LG P5 610E, it exists in db but it's miss detected in app and moans it can't match it to db * One Touch X'Pop 5035[COLOR="Red"]X[/COLOR], db has only the E version, but they're all the same (5035D, X, E etc) It also acts strange. Press the benchmark button, get a score, minimize app, lose score, run again, complain it's not production app, wtf.

Belgium Massman says:

What does the app say about the LG P5 610E? What device does it say it is?

I just added the Shield to the database. I didn't check if the specs are accurate, but we'll fix that later on :)

GENiEBEN says:

In db it is "E610 Optimus L5", but in device it's recognized something like "Optimus L5 E610". Will double check later.

United States FTLAUDMAN says:

Massman - Thank you for adding the Shield! I just run a 3129 - which for the moment looks to be the new record. No cooling or software tweaks applied, so anyone with a Shield should be able to meet or beat this.

Sweden Marquzz says:

How can you search the database just for Android devices? Got a 3046 with my Tegra Note and I want to see how that stands against any device :)

United States FTLAUDMAN says:

I rooted the Shield and started tinkering. Just submitted a 3476.

Belgium Massman says:

Awesome! Let me update the ranking again :)

Belarus ABS says:

How do I find a data file to submit for a team competition?
I have run the test but do not know how to submit for my team.

Romania Monstru says:

The software is kind of useless....almost 50% of the phones I test are not supported...

Belgium Massman says:

Are they local market phones ?

Romania Monstru says:

Some of them yes (even though it is not that complicated to add Gionee Elife S5.5, E6, etc, which are rebranded by many vendors but performance and chipset wise are the same phones).

My problem is when this happens with HTC One E8, for instance, which is not local, not small brand and not even that new on the market. It happened the same to me with other known brands also...

Put yourself in my shoes - I test dozens of smartphones per year and it would be easy for me to help get this benchmark more popular with more entries and tons of results from tons of phones. Problem is that usually I test new phones and I do not keep them for months. So there must be implemented a solution for an easier way of adding phones so people like me can do this. Because it does not help if the phone is added 3 months after launch - guys like me will not have it anymore so I cannot use your benchmark in my review.


And in cases like E8 it is not that complicated - from HWBot point of view it is an M8 with another id. I say that because the plastic casing, different camera and cheaper price do not change the Snapdragon 801 chipset, the 2GB of RAM and the benchmark performance.


It is a pity because the mobile benchmark is interesting, but it is not really useful if your phone is not there. And HWBot is not comprised of 100 employees. So...how can we make this easier an useful? Give me an option where I can manually add the phones....

GENiEBEN says:

^ Tudor, am bagat azi cam toate HTC'urile nerecunoscute. Problema este cu ruta aleasa, fiecare device are un nume in functie de ROM, care din pacate nu e unic si trebuie atribuit unui produs real. De exemplu, E8 era in vreo 4 variatii de nume. Si da, sunt complet de acord, dar nu ai cu cine sa te intelegi, am propus solutii dar....

Australia newlife says:

When I look up hwbot prime rankings and filter by arm why doesn't StrategosSan's score show up?

Romania Monstru says:

Thank you Genieben. I stick to my opinion that we should find an easier solution if we really want this benchmark to work.

Romania Monstru says:

Huawei Ascend P7... well known phone, out on the market for a while - not supported...

Will add it tonight, keep in touch.

United States VSG says:

The LG G3 isn't supported yet I see. I can run the test but no leaderboard access.

There are over 20 variations of the G3, do you happen to know the exact model name (check Settings>About Phone)?

United States VSG says:

Fair enough, it's the GF's phone so will get you that exact name soon. It is the LG VS985 Silk White if that helps.

GENiEBEN says:

Ohh so the Verizon edition, should be matched now, let me know if it worked.

United States VSG says:

Tried it again today morning, nothing still. I can log in and view my recent submissions from other benches, I can run the benchmark also but no submission available.
