Windows Phone 7 Benchmarking App – WP Bench

Do you own any Windows Mobile and are forced to think that whether your and your friend’s mobiles are both same or not? I know that the answer of this question would be no and many times, you might have thought about your device and might have compared your device with those of your relatives and friends. We all also know that when we compare the handsets of WP7, they do not come out as similar. They all appear to be different, I would not say all but infact mostly are different. This difference further increase when we compare the handsets using the Micro Sd card and Nand memory.

Robin Varga has released a benchmark application by the name WP Bench for Windows Phone 7 devices with which you can test your mobile for its hardware performance. Robin Varga is from ComputeMark and he has done an excellent work by releasing this app. WP Bench helps in testing the Gpu, central processing unit, display, battery, memory and storage of handsets.
