There are many benchmark tools available for mobile devices but realising how accuracy differs amongst them, Samsung and other companies like Broadcom, Huawei, OPPO and Spreadtrum have come together to form a consortium to create a standard performance metric for mobile devices.
The consortium is called MobileBench and revealed more details about their plans when they met in Shenzhen, China. Although the consortium is looking for new members, MobileBench will create two tools – MobileBench and MobileBench-UX to evaluate performances of mobile devices.
MobileBench-UX will be a PC-based software that delves a little deeper by evaluating UX performance when the device was connected through USB to a PC.
The consortium also plans to release a consumer-centric app so that end-consumers can benchmark their own devices.
