quadrant only runs at the native resolution of the phone and in the droid x2's case it has about a 30% higher res and the score reflex that.
The internal phone storage
Internal Memory and
The 16 GB internal storage is a total figure combining the two internal partitions.
Before I slammed my "Internal phone storage" with apps it was reflecting basically 2GB of storage. This only tells you how much is left, not total. I'm assuming the space not accounted for resides here for your OS system files.
Internal memory is showing 12.01 GB of total storage. You basically use this portion of memory as if it was an SD Card. You mount this along with your SD Card when connected to your computer. So, basically it looks like two SD Cards are mounted at the same time.
And 3rd of course is your 16 GB preinstalled SD Card. Or possibly your 32GB SD Card that you purchased.
I also just need to say that I've never seen so many completely inaccurate reviews on a device. I've seen for example where someone said this only has a 4 inch screen and people really don't understand the difference between RAM and internal storage/memory.
My guess is that there is 512 MB of RAM, but a certain part of it isn't detected by programs that report on it.
Loving my 2100 Quadrant scores. I also tried Linpack and got a score of 38-39 MFLOPS. Just a great performing snappy phone. Beautiful screen that can get really bright if wanted or needed.

I know the difference between rom and ram. I was not originally asking about internal rom. I was asking about random access memory. In fact the revo has 512mb ram with 368 available. I confirmed this with lg customer service, droid life and people on the forum.

Android assistant app tells me the same thing, 368.25 MB of RAM. I wonder if the Android version isn't reading the RAM correctly or isn't set to make use of all of it?

Alot of these android devices dont let you make use if all the ram. For instance on my fascinate I only have 348 available out of 512, because it is dedicated to ram for screen gpu and various other system tasks I believe. I am not sure but I think the revo has a dedicated video chip, so that may be why it is as fast as the tb which has more ram.

That is correct. The Revolution has the Qualcom Adreno 205 GPU. That's a pretty good theory as to why this has such good performance compared to devices with more RAM.
