The Monster, 30 Oct 2013The Rightware's database is wrong. The best gaming device is, none other than, the Galaxy Note... moretoo bad all the best titles come out on IOS first and then you must hope that the game is optisimised for you Android device..
But do we though? My point is that, similar to the white press renders that were clearly 'fishy' to say the least, there's something not quite right about this benchmark.
Don't get me wrong - am very excited at this phone's release, and these benchmarks, if genuine, are impressive. It's just that I am running searches practically every hour to see if there's anything new and *concrete*. Instead we get rumour after rumour.
I acknowledge, however, that it's probably just my frustration at the lack of hard facts rather than the need of news sites to come up with something, even if they are rumour. So perhaps I shouldn't take it out on them!
You do realize that the score in their top list is based on the off-screen test? So it does not matter which resolution the screen has, they are all doing the exact same workload.
And the reason why the Note 3 is not on top of that list is because of this: http://www.rightware.com/basemark-x-creator-comments-on-benchmark-cheating-pc-perspective/
Samsung cheats in BaseMarkX (and many other benchmarks).
Is this proof that stock Android performs better than a skinned one? As an iPhone user, if I am to go back to Android (love both by the way) a high res screen is a big draw.
On Nexus4 Stock 4.3, on-screen 18.342 off-Screen 7.711 It seems the Off-Screen value is the one that matters.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900V):
Offscreen score: 16.49
Onscreen score: 18.07
Average score: 17.28
Where do I go to see my results updated and listed amongst other devices on Rightware's official ranking page?
It can't possibly be the following site as several, stock devices beats these scores: http://results.rightware.com/
The Rightware's database is wrong. The best gaming device is, none other than, the Galaxy Note 3. It trashes the iphone 5S while carrying three times the iphone's resolution and just over twice of its screen estate. And you could just imagine gaming on that kind of screen with its true dead black and infinite contrast ratio.
i just did this benchmark on my nexus 4 and i got,
on screen : 20.490
off screen : 8.670
Average of 14.58
touzeen, 30 Oct 2013My Z1: OnScreen:17.091 OffScreen:14.302 which averages to 15.6 which is more both the N5 and G2 ?Yeah....i supose that you have customized your phone. Remember that, those benchmarks(n5) are stock.
which averages to 15.6 which is more both the N5 and G2 ?
How is this rubbish? This is a legit benchmark score, which prior to this, we did not have for this device. There's nothing about it that's rubbish. Quit being a jerk for no reason.

I wonder why my Xperia Z1 actually manages to beat the Nexus 5! I get 15.14 fps while the Nexus 5 has 14.17. I'm close to the iPhone 5s with its 15.4.
Remember, I'm not running 4.4. but 4.2.2. and my clock speed is not 2.3Ghz but only 2.17Ghz (Sony set it this way).
It's funny that my Xperia Z1 which is two Android Versions behind, not running Vanilla Android and clocked lower than the Nexus 5, can actually beat it!
I would say, poor optimization by Google and great job for Sony!
first thing after i do after buying the phone is change that pukish looking wallpaper, these leaks have made me sick
This all reminds me of the person in the desert fantasizing about reaching the Oasis. It's ALL a mirage until you actually get there.
