How to Benchmark New Device

The basic rules to the benchmarking:

Perform the following steps to benchmark:

  1. Install the benchmark.
  2. Charge the device battery from 85% up to 95% and launch the application.
  3. If the first testing cycle, click the button START, type your nickname and click a button NEXT to start the testing. Otherwise, click a button CONTINUE.
  4. Do not use the device while the test is running. The test will take about 6–8 hours. Once the testing is complete the application displays a table with the current results.
  5. Go back to the main menu. If the main menu contains a button CONTINUE, the testing is not complete for all video-decoders and you need to proceed to step 2 for the next testing cycle. Otherwise, the testing is complete and you can click VIEW RESULTS to see the whole results.
