Work 2.0 benchmark
See how your device handles common productivity tasks - browsing the web, editing videos, working with documents and data, and editing photos. Use Work 2.0 to measure the performance and battery life of your device with tests based on real applications. Or run the original Work test to compare your device with older models.
Computer Vision benchmark
Computer Vision is an exciting field with opportunities for a range of innovative mobile apps. This benchmark uses popular open-source libraries to test the performance of your device for image recognition, graphical barcode scanning, and optical character recognition tasks.
Slow storage speed in a device can cause annoying lag and stutters in everyday use. This benchmark tests the performance of your device's internal storage, external storage, and database operations. You get detailed results for each part of the test as well as an overall score to compare with other Android devices.
Compare the performance, popularity, and battery life of the latest smartphones and tablets with the Best Devices list. Tap any device to see a side-by-side comparison with your own device, or search for a specific model, brand, CPU, GPU or SoC. You can even filter the scores by Android version number to see how OS updates affect the rankings.
The experts' choice
"PCMark is actually a solid example of mobile benchmarking done right."
Alex Voica, Senior Marketing Specialist at Imagination Technologies
"tends to test every aspect of a mobile device, unlike microbenchmarks that can often miss aspects of the system that can affect performance."
Ganesh TS, Senior Editor at AnandTech
"Battery life is generally difficult to quantify due to the huge variation in potential workloads...The best test we have for this is PCMark, which performs a few common tasks instead of purely synthetic loops."
Matt Humrick, Staff Editor at Tom's Hardware
