Benchmarks are a funny thing. I think we’ve mentioned it close to a hundred times how, in real world usage, they don’t really amount up to diddly squat. Well, let me clarify that — they can give you a general idea of a mobile device’s performance, but they’re not always the bible truth in gauging the “speed” of a phone or tablet to the end user.

Be all that as it may, Futuremark has just released an Android version of their popular 3DMark benchmarking application and while this wont tell you how “fast” your Android device is, it will accurately measure the graphical performance of your phone or tablet objectively, showing you the frames per second your smartphone is capable of pushing using Futuremark’s intense graphical demos. The best part is you can see how your device stacks up against iOS or Windows devices, giving you not just another way of gauging the size of your manhood, but single handedly validating your device purchase in the process. Check out the trailer followed by the link to the Play Store. What score did your phone or tablet get, bro?
