Basemark X, The N5, and what to expect from AOSP on G2
First, the PhoneArena article: http://www.phonearena.com/news/Basem...-phone_id48870
The article highlights benchmark results from Basemark X 1.0 which puts N5, with 14.27 fps, second to the iPhone 5 at 15.54 fps. (Web page slightly outdated, as the app shows the Xperia Z1 as 2nd with 14.49)
For fun, I tried the same benchmark on my VS980. I'm on Malladus 1.1.7 and had Trickster tweaked a bit for performance and got 14.234 fps before I got bored tweaking...after like four iterations...so basically nothing.
I don't personally put much stock in benchmarks but I thought this was somewhat revealing as to how a barely-tweaked G2 compares to stock G2, N5, and iP5.
If the past is any indication, we can obviously look forward to significant bench improvements as our talented developers progress.
