    FlexyCore asks help from the android community to validate the results on existing android mobile phones by downloading a free benchmark application from the android market (DroidBooster in Application / Demo category).

    When exiting the application, the results can be send to us by the net, and then published on our website at FlexyCore

    (On a LG GW620, we get a performance speedup of x12.60 )

    Thanks for your help!

    F.

    PS: this application is only a benchmark for the DroidBooster product. Its only purpose is to bring back to us some infos namely : brand and model of your phone, and the result of the benchmark, which determines what speed gain could bring DroidBooster on this device.

    PPS: FlexyCore would like to thank all the people who helped us gathering already about 1000 results!

    I would be more willing to try if it was usable system wide. Besides benchmarks are relatively BS or at the very least only a partial indication of system potential (i.e. it's easier to get high benchmarks than actually increase system performance).

    Hi KZIWarrior!

    well these results are important to us: the more we have, the more they are significant :).

    The speed improvement factor is important because it means something, as opposed to a number representing some kind of index that is just useful when compared with other platforms results.

    Here, it the same platform and same code that are compared to each other with or without droidBooster.

    I am not sure to see what you mean by "usable system wide"? This product indeed addresses Android platform.

    Here is a video of the application on an HTC:



    Hope you you will participate :)

    Thank you!

    Thank you!

    Feel free to share your feelings about this, and whether you would be interested , as end user, if a mobile manufacturer or operator decided to use our compilation technology to speedup one of their phones drastically.

    So download, run benchmark, send results, and uninstall? I'd be happy to help as well.

    Not asking me to do anything I don't do 10 times a day already :) I'll send you some info Flexo.

    ** sent the info along. ** The difference was staggering. The upper screen was dead on responsive.

    Abnormal Results

    I was able to generate an a abnormal, not to mention unlikely, result by running my finger along the border between the two sections of the screen. After about three minutes of this the application was reporting just above 103%. Clearly, this isn't how the application was intended to be used so I am not surprised. However, you may want to add some dead space between the two sections in order to guard against outliers like my result.

    Otherwise, any JVM optimizations are welcome in my house. Java can be a real pig, it's nice to see a developer addressing that.

    Are you going to be releasing this to the public (the actual product) or only trying to sell to OEM like Moto etc? From what I inferred from your post it is only to sell to OEM...

    I'll be happy to help, but I'm not clear what we are doing, just letting you know what kind of phone we have??

    plus your youtube video is not available.

    Here's the way I see what they are trying to do:

    They are trying to get everyday users of Android based phones to send them benchmarks and possibly system information so that they can use that information to develop some sort of kernel/JVM or who knows what to make the Android system faster.

    The catch? It isn't (the way I read it) going to be released to individual users. Think of Swype and how they sold their product OEM to TMobile.

    So basically you can help them but the likelihood that you will ever see the result is slim to none unless you buy whatever phone they get the contract with. It's not likely ever going to be some sort of upgrade to the Android OS.

    They are trying to sell their product to OEM manufacturers or services to come preincluded with OEM software.

    So...if I am mistaken, correct me please OP.

    Fair enough. I'll install it after dinner and send the results tonight (phone's charging at the moment). Look forward to seeing if this will be implemented as an actual resource (that's what I meant by 'system wide'). Good luck , shows some promise.

    Hi!

    Here are some further info which can hopefully answer some of your questions:

    This benchmark has been written in pure Java.
    DroidBooster has been applied to a method which computes the image deformation. The result can be seen at the upper part of the screen. At the bottom of the screen is the result for the unchanged java method.

    DroidBooster is based on Java compilation to native code and uses the NDK.

    Finally, at the end you get the acceleration factor between the unchanged and the "droidBoosted" method.

    Thx!

    But will this be available to us in the market (or as a download), or will you be selling this to someone like Tmobile or HTC?
