Use PCMark for Android to benchmark the performance and battery life of your smartphone and tablet. See how well your device performs, then compare it with the latest models.
The Work benchmark measures the performance and battery life of your Android device for everyday tasks such as browsing the web, watching videos, working with documents, and editing photos. The tests use real applications and native APIs whenever possible giving results that reflect real-world performance.
Storage speed is one of the most overlooked measures of smartphone performance. No matter how fast the processor, when the storage is too slow you get a laggy, stuttering experience. The PCMark for Android Storage benchmark tests your device's internal storage, external storage, and database performance. You get detailed results for each part of the test as well as an overall score to compare with other Android devices.

"PCMark is actually a solid example of mobile benchmarking done right."
Alexandru Voica, Senior Marketing Specialist at Imagination Technologies
"tends to test every aspect of a mobile device, unlike microbenchmarks that can often miss aspects of the system that can affect performance."
Ganesh TS, Senior Editor at AnandTech
"Battery life is generally difficult to quantify due to the huge variation in potential workloads...The best test we have for this is PCMark, which performs a few common tasks instead of purely synthetic loops."
Matt Humrick, Staff Editor at Tom's Hardware
"one of my favorite battery benchmarks because it mixes together various different tasks, stresses different parts of the hardware, and in general gives a very good idea of how battery life will be when the user is doing many things with their smartphone."
Brandon Chester, Smartphone Editor at AnandTech
