Principled Technologies and the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community release MobileXPRT 3, a free performance evaluation app for Android devices

Durham, NC, February 1— Principled Technologies and the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community have released MobileXPRT 3, a free app that gives objective information about how well a tablet, smartphone, or any other Android device handles common tasks. Anyone can go to MobileXPRT.com to compare existing performance results on a variety of devices, and to download the app for themselves. MobileXPRT 3 is also available in the Google Play Store.

MobileXPRT 3 is a benchmark that evaluates the capabilities of Android devices by running six performance scenarios (Apply Photo Effects, Create Photo Collages, Create Slideshow, Encrypt Personal Content, Detect Faces to Organize Photos, and Scan Receipts for Spreadsheet). It also provides an overall measure by generating a single performance score. “MobileXPRT is a popular, easy-to-use benchmark run by manufacturers, tech journalists, and consumers all around the world,” said Bill Catchings, co-founder of Principled Technologies, which administers the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community. “We believe that MobileXPRT 3 is a great addition to MobileXPRT’s legacy of providing relevant and reliable performance data for Android devices.”

MobileXPRT is part of the BenchmarkXPRT suite of performance evaluation tools, which includes WebXPRT, TouchXPRT, CrXPRT, BatteryXPRT, and HDXPRT. The XPRTs help users get the facts before they buy, use, or evaluate tech products such as computers, tablets, and phones.

New benchmark to evaluate smartphone performance

Principled Technologies (PT) and the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community, which PT administers, are pleased to announce a new a benchmark, PhoneXPRT 2013.
 
This benchmark, which the community will be developing, will evaluate the capabilities of small form-factor devices. “We’re excited to be announcing this exciting new initiative during Mobile World Congress 2013,” said Bill Catchings, Chief Technology Officer of PT. “As popular as smartphones already are, the market is still developing, and today’s offerings differ widely in performance and responsiveness. The new benchmark will provide a fair and consistent basis for comparing the growing range of smartphones on the market.”

Community feedback will shape the new benchmark. Like all the BenchmarkXPRT benchmarks, PhoneXPRT 2013 will be based on real-world user scenarios and provide user-relevant metrics and results. The first operating system it will support is Android, but the intent is to support additional operating systems in the future.

“We invite all interested parties to participate in the creation, evaluation, and testing of this new benchmark,” Catchings said. Anyone can participate in the Development program by registering as a member of the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community. Community members have the opportunity to help shape future versions of the benchmarks.
