Possible bad CPU in my Photon?General

    I just ran the Quadrant benchmark on a used Photon I got off of ebay, and I only got a score approx. 2100. I noticed that the CPU tests took FOREVER; the Epic 4G Touch I was running with it neck and neck was done with the entire test before the Photon even completed the CPU tests. The E4GT ended up with a score of approx. 3500.

    Does this sound kind of fishy, like maybe something is wrong with the handset? I used to own a Photon last year, and I don't remember my old phone being this slow and buggy. My old Photon got better signal reception than my current E4GT, which is why I bought this thing off of eBay in the first place as a possible replacement (and travel phone)...

    Benchmark tests are not necessarily reflective of the overall performance of your phone. Some tests favor specific hardware,which could be the case here.

    Bottom line :

    If you are otherwise happy w/the performance of your phone, I wouldn't worry about benchmark scores.

    I would think that other things running in the background could also affect the benchmark results...

    Absolutely! IMHO,the best time to run a benchmark is right after a factory reset,before restoring all you apps,etc....

    It was just after a factory reset. The CPU tests took WAY longer than they should have...

    Well, the benchmark I took had the E4GT cpu faster than the Photon, but the photons GPU was superior. So, to me, it evens out. That said, I couldn't be happier with my photon. I take relief in knowing my reception and call quality, which is the most important, is FAR superior to anything Samsung could put out.
