Top Android App: Quadrant Standard

Top Android App: Quadrant Standard

Quadrant is a CPU, I/O, and graphics benchmark. It’s a great way to test the performance of your phone and compare it to other Android devices.

  • Version: 1.0-beta7
  • Size: 868KB
  • Category: Tools
  • Price: Free

Because it is based on a wide range of criteria, Quadrant Standard functions as a great all-around benchmarking tool. Note: This app may not work properly on phones without a GPU (Spica, HTC Tattoo). Also, it may not be used for commercial purposes (i.e. to advertise one phone as being superior to another).

When you open the app, you’ll see you can run a full benchmark and/or view system information. The system information is quite comprehensive and includes device, CPU, Memory, OpenGL, Sensor, and OS details.

Full benchmark tests:

  • CPU
  • Memory
  • I/O
  • 2D and 3D graphics

After the series of benchmarking tests are completed, your results will be displayed alongside the results from other users/devices. Needless to say, my G1 doesn’t really compare to the latest and greatest devices.

Also not too much of a surprise, the Nexus One running Android 2.2 is by far the best performer. However, the Nexus One running <2.2 scored much lower. Definitely a tribute to the latest version of Android.

I’m very interested to see what kind of results over-clocked users get with their devices. Share your scores in the comments below!


  • Benchmark tests only take a couple minutes
  • App is very easy to use
  • Results are shown in comparison to other Android devices
  • Detailed system information available

Areas for improvement:

  • More comprehensive results, instead of just an overall score (look for the full/pro version in the near future to have this)

Conclusion: An all-encompassing app for comparing Android phones, download and see where your phone lands!

  1. Only 169 with my 1.6 T-mobile G1 :( Haha

  2. just score 1093 on Quadrant, running my Droid on 2.2 at 700mhz. Just behind the Moto Shadow (Droid Xtreme) and Nexus One 2.2.

    not too freakin’ shabby.

    DROID DOES!!!!

  3. I scord a 1604.

    Motorola Droid running 2.2, clocked at 1.2ghz

  4. 1297 faster than the nexus 2.2 with Droid running bugless beast 0.2.1 and Chevy’s ulow voltage 1.2 ghz kernal

    • Pretty impressive scores! Is the difference you gain from over-clocking very noticeable?

      • Very much so…

  5. Over-clocking does increase the speed and responsiveness of the device and the JIT’s presence is noticeable. Droid Froyo @ 800MHz = ~1000…like the first post indicated, almost as fast as the upcoming shadow. Flash, however, is choppy.

  6. Desire (no OC) scored better than the nexus one < 2.2… yet it should be slower than the HTC Incredible… ??
    I hope HTC brings 2.2 for the desire soon!!!

  7. My G1 when I had 1.6 – 203
    My G1 with 2.1 on it – 189
    Same G1, now with 2.2 – 326
    Gotta love Froyo!

  8. Just got my Droid 2 2 days ago. Ran this because I wasn’t sure how it compared to what’s out there… I had a Droid 1 back in January for only one month. Here’s my score:

    Droid 2 (Froyo 2.2 pre-installed) — 1371

  9. scored a 799 on a stock droid running 2.2

  10. 380 on my g1 with froyo and 615MHz oc =]
