Recommend your Android device with 3DMark

February 21, 2014

We've updated our 3DMark Android benchmark app. The main change is a new feature that lets you recommend your phone or tablet to other 3DMark users. You can already see mobile devices ranked by popularity on our website. Soon you'll be able to see which phones and tablets generate the most personal recommendations too.

The other changes in this update help prepare 3DMark for our new OpenGL ES 3.0 tests, which are coming soon. For a start, 3DMark now supports the ability to install and uninstall benchmark tests from within the app. With this change you will be able to better manage the limited storage space on your device by installing only the most suitable 3DMark benchmark tests.

We've made it easier to install 3DMark on to AOSP devices, and to install via sideloading when there is no network available. 

Finally, we've also translated 3DMark into Simplified Chinese to better support our users in China and the surrounding area.
