Review Quadrant Standard Edition
A no frills benchmark utility
Author: Jay Feldman
Date: 24 May 2017, tested on ASUS Nexus 7 (2013)
Weak functionality, not powerful enough, low-quality design, is lagging
Quadrant Standard Edition for Android is a benchmark utility for your gizmo; test its capabilities and compare the results against others devices on the market.
Quadrant Standard Edition is a mediocre benchmark utility at best. The presentation is very dry and static, looking like it hasn't been updated since Android 1.5. It does a decent job of benchmarking, but truthfully, doesn't return much info. Most of the results are just stock specs that any Google search will return faster than this app. Plus, it forces you to submit data over the net just to spit back out mediocre and sparse results and I'm not a fan of the intrusion for what little is offered in return.
The interface is very rudimentary and basic, which is fine, but doesn't inspire me to purchase the full version. I have used far better benchmarking utilities that offer more comprehensive testing with a modern interface. For as sparse as this one is, it sure lagged a lot, and sending data over the net almost seemed to crash the whole app. It really sputtered before it came back to life; not good, given what little is actually happening here.
The test went quickly, but hardly felt comprehensive or inspired much confidence. I’m sure the results are competent, but the presentation leaves much to be desired.
Quadrant Standard Edition is just ok. Much work needs to be done to make this fit in today’s marketplace. As it is, it’s just far too limited and dated to merit much of your attention. You can try AnTuTu Benchmark instead.
