ABOUT THE TEST

LATEST VIDEO

From being shared by the vice president of marketing at Apple to being used in promotional videos by HTC, our "PhoneBuffStyle" speed test has become the industry standard for benchmarking smartphones and tablets.

 

The test itself consists of racing two devices through a virtual “track” made up of different apps and games. Each device’s processing power is tested in the first “lap”, with its multitasking abilities tested in the second. The device that finishes the race first is declared the winner.
