For the moment, this product is aimed at manufacturers and operators.
I'm skeptical of the usefulness of this test in that the "un-boosted" side is obviously very poorly written/optimized; I'm overclocked to 1GHz and no app should be as laggy as this one was. Sure, the boost code may be able to vastly improve unoptimized code, but how would it compare to a better-written app?
I did it ... too easy ... someone asks for some help ... I don't mind. It took about 2 minutes out of my day.
Motorola Razr Maxx
That's what I'm sayin'.....
For example...I usually run two miles in about 12:45 to 13:00. If I run a 12:30 I can say I've improved 15 seconds. But if I purposely run like 18 minutes, then run my regular 13:00, I can say I have improved 5 minutes from my last run time.
I'm not saying that's what they're doing her, per se.
But I get a little peeved when a company wants to use us for free to gather all their test results (much better than paying a group of people to do it of course), and basically use us to get some big corporation to buy their product, which we probably will never see. Because either a) TMobile/ATT/whoever doesn't buy it, b) it's on a brand or type of phone that we would never use, or gets purposely used on a cheap crappy phone to speed it up for cheaper than actually having better hardware, or c) it really barely works.
To me, as an interrogator (and perhaps this is me being extremely cynical because of that), the evasive answers of the OP leads me to believe that there is a 0% chance this would ever be released for the market to the consumer. Yes, it only takes a minute. Yes, perhaps you might see a benefit a year or so down the road.
But in that case they should offer their testers some sort of compensation, even if that means giving them access or something via some sort of promo code to get for free or even buy the code they are developing that wouldn't otherwise be available to the public.
Back when I had my Mazda that was modified I tested many products out for companies. I had about 20 legitimate sponsorships. One time, for example, one of my sponsors was testing out a new product but needed an original part (in this case, a spoiler being made out of complete carbon fiber). I drove around without a spoiler on the back of my car and holes in the body for about 4 weeks. And they gave me a brand new carbon fiber spoiler after it was done.
Sorry if it seems like I have strong feelings towards this, but I just get the vibe that the company is preying on the hype of their product to get internet forums into a frenzy (a lot of which are younger kids) so that they can get free research and test results.
The top half was clearly "faster"...the point lagged behind my finger a cm or two....not sure if this is expected or not.
The bottom half was crud...
I have my droid beasted and at 1GHz...so surprised that the lag at the bottom was so bad.
