DROID X2 Benchmark Results Confirm Tegra 2, qHD Display?


Benchmarks usually only reveal the existence of some devices, but one was run on the DROID X using NenaMark and it revealed a bit more than usual – that the device will have the Tegra 2 processor that was previously rumored and that its 4.3-inch display would have a qHD resolution.

The benchmark itself shows unimpressive results, but the unit tested is obviously not ready for retail and it does take a lot more juice to feed images to that larger-than-normal qHD resolution. We can’t wait to hear more about this device. [NenaMark via PocketNow]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Locked bootloader means another dud. Motorola will never learn

    1. I hardly think that the locked bootloader made the Droid X a “dud”.

      In fact if you look at the latest poll on droid-life, people really don’t give a crap about locked bootloaders. Only angry nerds that can live within the confines of a carrier contract emorage at locked bootloaders.

      1. What is a locked bootlader? I have been considering rooting my Droid X, as I read about a lot of the cool tech stuff, but I’m a little hesitant especially after reading that there might be a crackdown on rooters.

        1. With a lockd bootloader you can’t use custom ROM’s… you can still root it though, I believe

          1. You can still use custom ROMs on a locked bootloader, but they might be lacking in features. The major thing with the locked bootloader is that it prevents you from changing the Linux kernel. So, if someone designed two ROMs, one for a HTC device and one for Motorola, I believe the HTC ROM will have a few more special effects/features because of the custom kernel changing.

            Someone correct me if I’m wrong, that’s just how I interpreted it from another forum.

        2. Go ahead and root your X. I did just a few weeks ago after being nervous about it for months. Took a few minutes and allows me to do a few things I’ve wanted to do, but couldn’t. Just ignore every post you read about the locked bootloader as none of the people posting that own the phone, they simply read it and now hate Motorola based on nothing at all. In fact, not only can you root your X, but you can also install the rooted Gingerbread upgrade which I plan on doing this week.

          1. Couldnt say it any better a lot of people that diss the x never even owned one I do everything on the x that I did with my droid 1 and routing is nice but heavily overrated imo

          2. I don’t think it’s overrated. No one really talks about root, unless you’re on a site such as this or XDA, or anything related to modifying your Android phone. To a lot users, rooting is pointless; I doubt any of the older people or new users, or anyone completely happy with their phone will care about overclocking, taking screenshots, or applying a custom ROM. You can already get everything done on an unrooted Android phone. Rooting an Android device is nothing like jailbreaking an iPhone, in my opinion. Android users root to get everything(emphasis) out of their phone, where as iOS users jailbreak their phone to well…. use it.

            Edit: I guess I should also elaborate on the “no one talks about root.” I go to a very hipster art school where most people use iPhones. I’ve heard many talk about their phone being jailbroken. There aren’t as many Android users, but I don’t think they know much about rooting because it as much of a requirement as it is for iOS.

        3. The bootloaders on the DX/D2 are encrypted (not the same as simply locked – locked bootloaders can generally be unlocked, but you aren’t breaking a 1024-bit RSA unless you are incredibly, amazingly lucky) meaning that unless you have the key, or are one of the luckiest people in the universe, you’re going to be running ROMs built on the current build. For example, the current build on the Droid 2/X is Froyo – Android 2.2. You can certainly root, over/underclock, remove bloatware and run custom ROMs, but only ROMs built on the 2.2 kernel – unlike the Droid 1 which was about as open as you get and root users (myuself included) were running true Froyo ROMs months before the official release. For most people it is a non-issue, I personally hate encrypted bootloaders because after owning a D1, I was addicted to flashing new ROMs – nightlies every night, new builds, tweaks, overclocking kernels, etc. When it was switched out for a D2, I no longer had that ability which isn’t to say that the Droid X/Droid 2 aren’t good phones; they’re great phones, you are just at the mercy of Moto and VZW for an update or a “leaked” 2.3 kernel. If updated custom ROMs aren’t your thing, then this is all a non-issue. I still have my D2 which I basically use as a mini wifi tab and dev phone and still run Liberty 1.5 on it @ 1.35GHz and it works great.

          1. Thanks for all of the replies and info. So is a custom ROM similar to a custom launcher? Or is it something completely different? As for overclocking, I’m assuming that allows the phone to operating faster and/or smokther.

          2. A custom ROM can be anything technically. But it basically is the developer’s custom version of the OS. There are a million types out there, CyanogenMod pretty widely known (not for Droid X unfortunately)


      2. Exactly, a locked bootloader has no bearing on the actual use of the phone.

        Its the extra things you might wanna do that a locked bootloader comes into play.

        Some ppl wanna credit the success of the Droid 1 to it being so open. No, the success of the Droid 1 had to do with Verizon’s advertising, Android and good hardware.

        I’m sure I was like most ppl that got the Droid 1…I didnt know about custom ROMs until after I got my phone. Custom ROMs was never a factor in me getting it.

  2. What’s the difference with the LG Optimus 2X and the South Korean version?

    1. It has a bit different hardware – for example it has a hardware button like the desire or the galaxy s.
      If you want more info google LG SU660 (the international version is the LG P990, the US version will be the LG P999)

  3. How will this differ from the Bionic other than cosmetically? No LTE? Maybe it wont have the lame pentile matrix screen.

    Also, scores are only 5-10% less than phones with lower resolution screens which is not bad.

  4. What’s a Nexus S Trinity??? o_O

    1. It’s a Nexus S with a custom kernel. Some Trinity ROMs can get up to 1.7GHz, which result in some impressive benchmarks. That score is probably from a 1.4GHz version though.

      1. Sweet, thanks for the info. I learn something new everyday.

  5. How is it not impressive when its only a lil lower than the LG 2X? Does that mean the LG 2X score isnt impressive?

  6. Rock on Nexus S! Untouchable.

  7. Dam why can’t Moto start making 4.7 or bigger screen sizes already? Apple will surly follow Im sure …alol.
