ANDROID

 

84 percent of all mobile devices run Android. GameBench has already been used to profile 1000+ apps running on 450+ of these devices.

COVERAGE

 

Our app works on the 75 percent of Android devices that run Jelly Bean 4.1.2 or higher. It monitors all key aspects of performance, battery life and resource usage. 

ACCURACY

 

We provide 100% real-world data, with no reliance on synthetic workloads that are easily cheated. With GameBench, the app or game is the benchmark.
