Performance

26 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

So for the few of us that have one already how are you finding the performance so far? Any popular games you have played? Seeing Pauls second run Quadrant score was a little worrying as it is ridiculously low. Pretty sure my Defy can clock at least 1500 at stock speeds!

What about ways to improve the performance too? Once the source is out i'm sure we will be able to overclock it if only a little maybe 1ghz? Only know of the Galaxy Ace having the same cpu and can't find any overclocking info on that,

I'm dying for a bigger screened phone to tide me over until next Feb/March. :)

I know as you said in another thread :D

I can see me sticking to the Defy just I'm addicted to the feeling of a new device when all the development first starts! I'm sure you know what I mean Paul!

That is terrible, do you have your hands on one yet? Curious to see if the Blade bugs have been fixed.

I am too and I had a play with an unbranded version last month which seemed a lot better! All the gunk that Orange have put onto the phone hasn't helped performance.. it's way too low.

This is not the upgrade people expected. A replacement for the Blade yes, but an upgrade.. no way.

I think people are disappointed because of the high standards and the low price of the Blade. ZTE made a reputation but it hasn't managed to live up to it. If this was a phone made by another manufacturer or even by ZTE if they didn't release the Blade, people would have been all over it.

Well if we get rid of the Orange bloat then performance might improve.

That's the hope! Ideally we need a stock Gingerbread build from an unbranded device or somebody to build one from code aurora.

Or sort CM7 out.

As soon as I get my phone, the CM7 challenge begins :)

Are there any videos out there of a retail unit that shows off the performance? Torn between this + a 3DS or just a recent, expensive phone instead.

The unboxing video does to a certain extent - it's on the forum page. I don't think there's one apart from that.

How would you want to see performance in a video though? In the unboxing mentioned I show the movement around homescreens and app drawer.

For the record I just scored high 900 in Quadrant, but only 300 in Smartbench 2011...

Initial looks at the camera aren't too impressive, but I'll cover that more in the review, which will hopefully be up over the weekend.

This is a really good point, the blade is such a great price.
