No matter what you buy – a smartphone, a notebook or a tablet, you buy hardware that comes with a processor, memory and other components. The reason behind your purchase is to run programs and run them quickly so that you can get your things done. But there’s always one itch – you want to know how fast your hardware is and then compare it to other users so to do so you use benchmarking software.
AnTuTu is one such piece of software but it is designed for Android smartphones and tablets. It does the same job – it gives you an idea how fast your device is and it does that in a great way. In fact AnTuTu is the most popular smartphone/tablet device benchmark out there and there is a reason for that – this software app examines your device inside and out putting it through a number of different tests that show its strengths and weaknesses.
AnTuTu does not feature anything special since it is a benchmark test. When you run it you will see three sections that are pretty much self-explanatory – Test, Ranking and Device Info. Well, since this is a review we will say a few words about every section. Test gives you access to the actual test, which takes a while so be prepared to wait. Ranking pits your device result against other similar devices so that you can see where your device is, while Device Info gives you very detailed information on your device hardware.
Using AnTuTu is very easy – go to Test and then touch the Test button. The benchmark starts and it will take a few minutes. After it finishes it will give you an overall score and then you can compare it to other devices. If you need more information then tap on Device Info to get more details. This is it. Easy, isn’t it?
There isn’t much else to say except that AnTuTu is free. So if you like to play with your hardware then download it and then run it. And if you need some more information you can take a look at it here on Google Play.
