Ronald Matta,

Futuremark has released a major update for its PCMark for Android benchmarking app. The update will add two new benchmark tests and a new way to compare devices across Android OS versions. PCMark for Android comes with a new and improved Work 2.0 benchmark and battery life test.

As the best way to benchmark smartphones and tablets is to look at the performance of the device as a whole, Futuremark has compared with PCMark for Android how the performance of two popular smartphones has changed across three Android generations. Futuremark looked into PCMark for Android Work benchmark scores for the LG Google Nexus 5 and Samsung Galaxy S5 for Android versions 4.x, 5.x and 6.x. Here are the results: LG Nexus 5 and Samsung Galaxy S5 performance across three Android OS generations.

According to Futuremark, Android OS updates can make wide-reaching changes that affect the whole device. OS Updates will not always bring better performance for every activity. By using a benchmark based on real-world tasks, users can see the areas where an OS update has the biggest impact. For some activities, there might be big improvements as a result of new drivers, OS optimizations or changes to APIs. In other areas, the performance might stay the same or even degrade.
