Quadrant Benchmarking App Updated For ICS Friendliness

The Android benchmarking app, Quadrant, was updated today to add Ice Cream Sandwich functionality, support for multi-core CPUs, as well as added support for the Polish language. However the use of Quadrant for reliable determination of your smartphone’s power is still irrelevant. It’s been proven that Quadrant can be cheated to achieve unrealistic scores, and currently you can (if you have a Galaxy Nexus) compare your scores against the Galaxy Tab and Nexus S, which honestly isn’t very useful.

Of course this isn’t to say that Quadrant is entirely useless. In fact, in can give you a decent idea of how your phone holds up, albeit on a generalized scale. However the best way to judge a smartphone’s power and speed is to obviously use it yourself.
