Benchmark Brawl II: HTC Evo 4G vs. T-Mobile G2

Here’s another set of benchmarks to illustrate that the T-Mobile G2’s 800MHz processor is far from underpowered. This time around, I ran benchmarks on my friend’s Evo 4G (thanks Steve!). Last time, I used a Samsung Fascinate running Android 2.1 for comparison. Like I said before, that’s an apples and oranges comparison since the phones run different versions of Android (though that didn’t stop some idiots on Reddit for blasting me and the article — morons). This time, both phones sport Android 2.2 (FroYo).

It’s the same deal as before — I used Greene Computing’s Linpack andAurora Softworks’ Quadrant benchmark tests. Each test was run three times and the scores were averaged. Here are the results.

Linpack

  • Evo 4G: 33.4
  • T-Mobile G2: 33.267

Quadrant

  • Evo 4G: 1,311
  • T-Mobile G2: 1,668

The results are pretty interesting. The Evo 4G uses a 1GHz CPU that’s made with an older process and the older Adreno 200 GPU. Even though the G2 runs at a lower clock speed (800MHz), it’s made with a more efficient process. The real kicker is the G2’s newer Adreno 205 GPU, which offers significantly better performance. That’s a big reason the G2 bested the Evo 4G in Quadrant.

Don’t get me wrong, the Evo 4G is a fantastic phone and I really enjoyed using it. The G2 is also an excellent phone and I’m currently loving it. I just wanted to fight against the stupid people on the Internet that are blasting the G2 for having an 800MHz processor. Clock speed isn’t everything people!
