There is a very important battery benchmark missing.. And that is the battery time when gaming. An easy way to test would be to run a CPU/GPU benchmark like geekbench and Antutu over and over until the battery dies, to get an estimate of the battery time for intensive use... The current benchmarks for video, browsing are very easy to be tweaked by phone-makers.. Running a long-running max-benchmark (that the vendors also want to look good at, when they compare performance) will ensure that both the CPU/GPU benchmarking scores are kept honest and that battery times are valid even fro intensive usage.
Apologies if this has been asked before but with the loudness of the outputs from the line out jack is there any way you can put an actual figure to this rather than just saying it's loud or not very loud? I'm sure your test equipment will give you an output waveform so would be good to see these for comparison.
Z5 premium with an hour video play back, an hour Internet and an hour 3g calls I would have to charge up every 4 to 5 hours. Not sure where 66hrs comes from. Am I not understanding your tables?
Could you please tell exactly what kind of video you use for battery test of video playback (resolution, compression type, bitrate, audio...) or perhaps provide a download link of your test video (if not copyrighted)...
I am trying to guestimate state of batteries on bunch of old phones ;-)
Brought a SONY XPERIA XA Nano SIM model F3113. Feel satisfied with performance except low audio which Sony themselves admitted.
One more question about audio:
For devices with dedicated HiFi DAC, are audio output tests ran on the HiFi mode or normal mode?
About audio test: Which sample rate/bit depth are you using for playback and recording? are they 44.1k/24bit?
handset is very impresive look,weight,water proof,also 4G ,,,,high quality speker,
this very usefull product,,,,
I love lumia and special 650 good phone
But some future is missing
1 battery back up ...2000mah is poor for life stayl
2200 to 2500 is better of this device
1 only 720p no hd record
And ram 1gb
1.5 to 2gb is better
And other think is excellent ...nyc
Friends you can buy ...no probably ...but carry with power bank
My sony expirea e4 battery draning verry fast and also while doing wall charging it's charge but 10% charge in 1 hours this never happen before please resolve my problem or give some solution
My phon (GT 190601) camera application has broke down since 3 days ago. When I turn it on this message appears
"Camera failed" . What should i do ?
I have restarted it again and again, but it doesn't work.
Please start using 24bit 96KHz files when testing with RMAA. Almost every new smartphone supports high resolution audio, and you are still using 16 bit 44,1khz to test the phones. you have reached a wall and are refusing to go over it although you have everything you need to do it.
