    Default anyone with the X willing to run quadrant on it?

    I know a lot of people don't believe in benchmark test, but how about someone running quadrant on their X and posting the results

    I quickly fell out of love with benchmark scores about 3 years ago when I first got into rooting/custom ROMs. Everyone was obsessed with overclocking their processors for better benchmark scores. After doing the same and achieving god-tier Quadrant scores, I realized the only thing that changed was my phone got hotter and my battery died quicker; real use was entirely unaffected. Shortly after that I became keen on underclocking for better battery performance, with no noticeable drop-off in real world speed. But my Quadrant score was worse, so I had no bragging rights, I guess. That's when I began to realize the enormous disconnect between benchmark scores and practical performance.

    It's all very, very silly to me.

    Glad to see the Moto X deserves the high end phone price tag with mid range specs and low end Quadrant scores. Enjoy.

    If its faster, smoother and has better battery life... Maybe the correlation between quadrant and real performance just isn't there.

    Those scores will only benefit people obsessed with numbers. I'd rather have mid range numbers with a much better user experience than high numbers with average experience. So far, it seems the correlation between numbers and experience isn't the end all be all answer some of you are looking for.

    Couldn't agree more! And I own an S4 as well. It's no comparison.

    id gladly trade off a slower phone for a few hours of battery life. i had an htc one and it got hot and drained battery fast.but it scored great on quadrant tho. whats the point of a fast phone if u can only use it for 4-5 hrs? its nonsense. when u ask the phone to do something does it respond quickly? does it lag? who cares what the damn numbers say.

    I stopped using quadrant as a consideration when I realized my s4 q scores blew my note 2 q scores out of the water.... Except my note 2 didn't lag on simple tasks and would last all day on one charge.

    Over 9000? That's too midrange Jerry. How are we going to beat any Super Saiyan with that score?

    All I can say is that I have the S4, The HTC One, the Nexus 4 and the Moto X here in front of me. Anyone who says this device needs more cores is wrong.

    I agree... I got 12612 on my S4, was hoping with the hype the X would do better

    here is my S4, snappiest phone I ever had, ad a hard time switching from moto razr to Samsung...but the X's specs just was not there and I was tired of my phone lagging..tried the S4 and best phone so far...I am not much into talking to my phone...I just need my phone to do what I need it to do when I am away from my computer...and that means its gotta have some guts,...not just a lot of talk.

    Lol @ this thread
    I didn't know that anyone even cared what quadrant said anymore. Compare it to the gigahertz wars back in the day. People were OBSESSED with overclocking the balls out of their computers, until we finally accepted that optimization+better functioning cores was more beneficial. This phone has a quad core GPU, that means that it can handle ANY game on the entire Android market, I bet my left nut. Android is a lightweight operating system, that's why it has two dedicated cores, that's all it needs, and to break it down:

    CPU
    0: android os (floating point, random seed, threading)
    1: current apps (floating point, basic flops)

    GPU:
    2: touchrender (touch calculations)
    3: vector (drawing, sizing, and coloring infinite resolution)
    4: vsync (vertical/horizontal refresh calibration)
    5: raster (drawing, and coloring defined resolution)

    Beowulf parallel:
    6: voice commands ("OK, Google now...", tts)
    7: active notifications (Duh)

    Now, each core is dedicated to those, unlike the other multi core devices that just have a bunch that do whatever, so each core has it's own job, and everything is smooth, because it's orderly, and defined.

    Also, just a side note, a CPU can only do one job at a given time, but swaps between jobs several times a second, so they don't become unresponsive, so a multi core device will almost always have one core focusing on the operating system.

    Now, name me ten apps that will scale to all those CPU cores that aren't benchmarking apps. That was easy mode (lots of games, right?) so now here's HARD MODE: name ten apps that aren't games that will take advantage of four cores. Good luck, have fun.

    I wish there was something else I could tell you to convince you otherwise, but it doesn't even seem like you want to read your own thread. It's a shame too; you're missing out on a great phone because you're enthralled with benchmarks instead of practical performance.

    That's okay. The S4 is a fine device and I'm sure the next phone that comes out and bests it in Quadrant will be plenty worthy of an upgrade.
