iPhone 6 Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, and the Nexus 6 is arguably the top four smartphone series that became the mainstay of the respective manufacturers.
Which among them the most qualified when invited to play games? This is trying to look for the answer by GameBench benchmarking software maker.
In a report IB Times, GameBench run 10 popular mobile game titles are voracious resource in a fourth mobile phone, including GTA: San Andreas, Monument Valley, and Marvel: Contest of Champions.
Performance is measured on the value of mobile phones frames per second (FPS) and the median age of a variety of games that run. FPS stability is also included in the assessment. As a result, Apple’s iPhone 6 appearing at the top.
“IPhone 6 on average produce higher value by 10 percent while running tenth tested high end games,” said GameBench in its report.
“Galaxy S6 performed in second place, with more performance bottleneck that causes the framerate dropped to 30 FPS,” said the company. As for the third and fourth positions respectively occupied by HTC Nexus One M9 and 6.
Although the iPhone 6 had won the first prize, GameBench add a note that some games are more optimized for one platform than the other (eg iOS, rather than Android).
iPhone 6 also run the game with a smaller resolution than the Android phones (720p, 1080p versus on Android) so that the processing load is smaller. Screen resolution of the device in question is lower than most high-end Android smartphones today.
Differences that are under GameBench contribute to the high value of the iPhone 6. Going forward, GameBench intend to run tests on an iPhone 6 Plus which has a display resolution standard closer to Android.
Researchers from the University of Hanover, Germany, is developing a technology that can make the smartphone into a pregnancy detection equipment. The researchers will make a sensor that allows the user to perform all kinds of biomolecular tests , including pregnancy tests, and also monitor the disease diabetes.
The sensors will provide real-time results and can be read via the application on the smartphone. Someday actually created, the sensor will be able to monitor the various liquids that taste of the body, such as urine, blood, saliva, sweat, and even breathing.
