Pre vs Post Update Benchmarks

    Well I decided to revive my floppy attempt at a thread here. ;)
    This time hopefully I can bring a little bit more to offer. I ran 24 total bench marks, in 4 categories. All benchmarks were performed on the device in an unrooted state. No play store updates were ever made to preinstalled apps.

    The categories that I ran benchmarks on were:

    1. fresh install with firmware c
    2. optimized install with firmware c
    3. fresh install with firmware d
    4. optimized install with firmware d

    Since the phone tests were done on an unrooted phone, I use the word "optimized" to mean all system apps were disabled except for the following:
    Download Manager
    Downloads
    Google Account Manager
    Google Services Framework
    QuickMemo

    To average out abnormalities, multiple benchmarks were run on each category.
    3 benchmarks on each category using Quadrant Standard
    3 benchmarks on each category using AnTuTu Benchmark

    Note: If it is not obvious, I/O benchmarks will be disregarded because that score is much more dependent on the sdcard we have purchased rather than the phone itself.

    The results seemed to very slightly be in favor of leaving all system apps enabled. Other than that, there is no significant difference in performance between firmware c and d.

    After running those previous benchmarks I decided to try one last round of tests. I wanted to see how benchmarks came out after running the Automated All Bloatware Removal script to remove all unnecessary preinstalled apps.

    I rooted my device and ran 3 tests using Quadrant Standard, and the results were as follows:
    9139, 9007, 8985 - cpu
    7327, 7236, 7579 - mem
    1014, 1080, 1014 - 2d
    2148, 2194, 2203 - 3d

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. Quadrant Rooted UnBloatware firmware d
    3. tot cpu + tot mem + tot 2d + tot 3d = total
    4.    27131 +   22142 +   3108 +   6545 = 60818
    5.  
    Conclusion: There appears to be no significant improvement after using the bloatware remover.

    So the next thing that would need testing is 4G speeds. Not sure if it already was.

    That's an option, but the full capacities of the phone might not be able to be reached on the throttled MetroPCS network.

    True, but it seems the update did not effect system performance in any way, it has to do with something besides just adding extra bloatware.

    Last week I downgraded to firmware C solely to see if my 4g speeds would improve. For me it did not make a difference so I went back to firmware D.

    Thank you Sepero for the effort that you put into testing the firmwares. I wonder if there is any battery life differences between the updates. To me D seems to give me better battery but I haven't tested it so it is probably just my imagination.

    There was at least one report of fast charging not working after the update, anyone else observe this?
