Stagefright vs Opencore In Sapphire 1.0.0, I have disabled the stagefright media player and defaulted back to opencore. This was done because there were reports that opencore produced better quality audio on several applications that stream mediaover the internet. Sadly, opencore also takes more time to decode H.264 video, an item that Quadrant uses to determine its score. Thus, the score suffers dramatically due to the use of opencore over stagefright. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THIS LOW QUADRANT SCORE DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE PHONE RUNS POORLY. OPENCORE vs STAGEFRIGHT WILL ONLY AFFECT MULTIMEDIA PLAYBACK, NOT OVERALL PHONE PERFORMANCE. IT IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHY A BENCHMARK SCORE SHOULD NOT BE THE END ALL AND BE ALL OF HOW FAST YOUR DEVICE IS. Regardless, for those who would rather run with stagefright, I have developed an update.zip t Original post : I don't know why but my QS score absolutely plummeted upon upgrading. I can't get over 700 now clocked at 1.2ghz. My phone hangs during the h.264 encoding test whereas it never has before, but my fps is also significantly lower on each gfx test as well. Anyway, I thought I would see what scores others are getting. Post your QS scores here.
