    Type in Quadrant into Market search and download the free app and run it.

    It basically tells you how fast your phone run fps and such.

    It will give you a different reading every time. I think they are worthless. JMO:)

    cool thanks. cuz i was wondering what the benchmark thing in the setcpu app and did a "short bench" and "long bench" and it just tells me "lower is faster". do you know what this is telling me? and whats a short and long bench? also native bench?

    No problem.

    Yea man I was running @1600's after froyo OTA with nothing done to my phone.

    After I rooted, got rid of bloatware and installed a ROM it was running so fast.

    But when I ran my benchmarks they were reading @800's. So numbers tell me

    nothing:) I know how good my phone runs.

    chkmate is right, the quadrant scores mean nothing, people are in this overclock war and are like ZOMG WITH A 300 VOLT TWEAK I CAN RUN MY PHONE AT OVER 9000 QUADRANT FOR LIKE 2 MINUTES BEFORE IT XPLOEDS IT'S SO AWESUM!!!1!!122@ONE!

    I think it's dumb as well - I undervolt at 1.2 and it's smooth as silk with a 1600 quadrant
