Video: HTC Amaze 4G SpeedTest and Quadrant benchmark scores


The HTC Amaze 4G is expected to be the most powerful and fastest phone on T-Mobile’s 42 Mbps HSPA+ network when it goes on sale on October 10. We can talk about specs all day long, but we’re pretty sure you guys want to see how the dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor and 42 Mbps HSPA+ chip perform in the real world.

Running network speed and processor benchmarks aren’t really an exact science, but they do give us a general idea of how different phones compare to each other. First up is a SpeedTest comparison between the HTC Amaze 4G and the T-Mobile G2X. The Amaze 4G didn’t have any issues outperforming the G2X, reaching download speeds over 14 Mbps. Those numbers don’t even come close to what we’ve seen from Verizon’s 4G LTE devices, but they’re certainly impressive when compared to Sprint’s 4G WiMax network.

The video below also gives us a look at the Quadrant scores for the HTC Amaze 4G. Compared to NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chips, Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon processors typically produce much lower numbers. In the case of the Amaze 4G, the dual-core 1.5 GHz makes it through Quadrant with a score of 2,477 — a respectable number, but still lower than 2,600-2,800 scores produced by phones like the G2X with a dual-core 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2.

Impressed? Disappointed? How do the Quadrant benchmark scores and SpeedTest numbers affect your opinion of the HTC Amaze 4G?

    I like the part that says impressive compared to sprints wimax, dial up internet is impressive compared to wimax so thats not saying much!!!

    • kazahani

      I consistently get 7-9 mbps downlink in Cincinnati. That’s not bad considering WiMAX has been out for almost 2 years now.

    • Richard Yarrell

      What airport are you at when leaving this comment?? You must be getting a real strong verizon wifi signal there.. Vote down another misleading comment from the biggest loitering troll of this site..

      • squiddy20

        Soooo many things wrong with your (as usual) ridiculous statement.
        1. He never said he was at an airport. In fact, he never divulged his location at all. 2. Even with your “vote down” his comment is still rated positively, which makes your effort completely useless. 3. What about his comment was “misleading”? The first part of his comment is true as the article states “…they’re certainly impressive when compared to Sprint’s 4G WiMax network.” And the second part is purely opinion, none of which is “misleading”. 4. BWAHAHAHAHAHA! “the biggest loitering troll on this site”???? You *must* be talking about yourself. After all, you’re the one who comments on Verizon articles if only to bash said carrier when you are a self proclaimed Sprint fanboy. Not to mention pretty much all of your comments are always rated negatively. What a joke.

      • snowbdr89

        Once again dick snot yarrell the ultimate troll makes another useless comment, why would i need a wifi signal moron? Id be way more then happy to compare my speeds to you’re pathetic wimax. Lte makes wimax its BITCH hands down!!

  • Kev

    Considering that WiMax is a different technology used specifically for higher speeds, I love the fact that T-Mobile’s 3G /4G hybrid network can pull down data nearly twice as fast.

  • kwills88

    I am more concern about quadrant than anything else, it got 2400+ now I am wondering what the sgs2 will get considering they are using the same processor if I am not mistaken

  • Blake

    Any idea when we will get the TMO Galaxy S II speed test results?

    I get 3-6 on my G2 on the south side of Houston.

  • dave

    you have to remember that the HTC Amaze has qHD display. scores will be lower since it is a higher resolution (more pixels). T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S2 should post higher scores as it has a lower resolution to deal with.

    • Kev

      Since Samsung has been using their own processors for the GSII line it will be nice to see how the two phones compare when they use the same dual-core Snapdragon. This should get very interesting.

    • Ichigo

      No it won’t. If anybody here is interested in knowing about T-mobile galaxy s 2, head on to It’s a Canadien website and Telus which is a Canadien service provider has the same galaxy s 2 as the tmobile version with the qualcomm processor. They did a quadrant benchmark and u won’t be satisfied. However performance is great.

      • james

        The Telus version has the 1.2ghz snapdragon. Its the same type, scorpion A200. There’s a 1.2ghz(telus) and 1.5(Gs II t-MOBILE).

  • DROID Sam

    I can’t wait for one of these phones to break the 3,000 mark in quadrant. I know there are hacked up phones that get those numbers, but those numbers don’t really count. I’ll be waiting for a quad-core phone next year.

    • Nate B.

      Epic Touch 4G does that now. All on one core because apparently its not made for dual core yet.

      • David A.

        I just ran the benchmark on my Galaxy S 2 and got 3364.

  • Nate B.

    Not trying to be a downer but what is the difference between this and the sensation and the evo 3d.

    • Nick Gray

      Not much really, this phone has 1 GB of RAM compared to the 768 MB on the Sensation, same processor clocked at 1.5GHz, radio chip which can take advantage of the 42 Mbps HSPA+ network, and a back-lit imaging sensor.

      It’s a better phone, but if you own the Sensation it’s not like you’ll really notice much of a difference between the two.

  • David Williams

    Holy bad ping batman!

  • mike

    Seriously don’t get why people freakn test dualcore phones with quadrant IT DOESN’T SUPPORT DUALCORE>>>IT ONLY TEST ONE CORE

    • android4life

      Haha no kidding…can also go into system info on free version since you cant actally see hardware scores for cpu, ram..ect
      and you will see it only detects one core.

      • mike

        and whats funny is our comments are actually getting down rated just goes to show how fucking retarded people are.

    • Chris D

      i stopped taking this site seriously i a long time ago
      I hate when they post rumors as if they’re facts also misleading headlines and now im adding inexperienced people reviewing hardware to the list

      Wild guess but roughly less than half of android community are technically inclined…pretty sad

    • Scotter

      If we are comparing mostly dual core phone vs. dual core phone, it doesn’t matter a whole lot if the benchmark only tests one core, does it? The only way I can see you needing to worry about that score is if you are adding any single core phones into the comparison.

      • demo

        lol that’s not proper benchmarking

        • Mike


          there are benchmarks that support dual core no reason to one that doesnt

  • Sean

    Man, HTC makes some great looking phones! I want this phone just by how it looks. It’s a shame that sense is getting so heavy these days. I used to love sense, but they just keep adding and adding. I feel as though all the new bloat and transition effects really slow down the phone. But god I still want it.

  • Interpol91

    Definitely a great device but I would never use quadrant scores to decide which phone to get. Can’t wait to see its score increase once it’s running a custom rom.

  • Ichigo

    I have always said that T-mobile 4 G networks craps on Sprint’s and AT&T. There it is.

  • Chris D

    Oh no doubt
