myTouch HD flexes its muscles -- gets benchmarked

Another day, another Android device pushed to its limits by Android enthusiasts. This time it's the T-Mobile myTouch HD under the microscope, and the results are satisfying. Take these results with a grain of salt, as the community is divided on how much these test scores actually matter. Regardless of which camp you're in though, these tests do help gauge a phone's horsepower, and I feel they're a decent indicator of a handset's processing capabilities. How well those processing capabilities translate to a smooth UI and fluid user experience, well, that's a whole different ballpark.

Scoring a Quadrant score slightly higher than 1,800, the myTouch HD bests devices such as the Evo 4G and Nexus One. However its Linpack scores fall just below those of my Evo. But like I said, take these numbers with a grain of salt.

These aren't the highest scores we've ever seen, but they're certainly not bad, and should be a reliable indication of the myTouch HD's performance. These test results may not tell you exactly what you can expect from the myTouch HD, but what they should tell you is that its scores are right on par with some of the most popular Android devices out there, and that's definitely a good thing. Couple more pics after the break.  [via Android Spin] Thanks, Alex!

  • Psssh my Evo gets 2500+ on Quadrant and 38+ on Linpack.
  • Stock or overclocked?
  • Overclocked. And did anyone see the Droid X and Droid 2 have been overclocked to 2ghz. And stable at 1.45 ghz? Not too bad for phones that were said to be unhackable.
  • This phone will get very high benchmark scores as well once you start overclocking it. Look at the results for G2: But I have to admit, I am surprised that Droid 2 can o/c to 2GHz!
  • Stock
  • Kind of weird to think the most powerful Android phone is going to be a MyTouch.
  • I agree that benchmark doesnt mean anything. Ill stick with my x
  • Does the fact that the tested phone is showing edge network have any impact on the scores?
  • No it just shows T-Mobile's network is pretty short reaching (and don't start calling me out, I'm on T-Mobile, I know). And it's funny because if you see the video on these were taken by someone who was getting trained on the
  • The images above were taken by a device tester for T-Mobile and are not from the guy who is about to be fired for making that video as you obviously identify that guy, LOL.
  • The guy from the meeting who recorded the benchmark on the sly (hello reflection), was on the H network.
  • And you can also use the app to find singles in your area. LOL
