Although benchmarking tests aren’t the be-all and end-all for a tablet’s success, they do provide some interesting insights into functionality and performance.
The key conclusion reached was that Nvidia Tegra 3-based Android tablets are some of the best-performing on the market.
Key differences in tablets were attributed to different versions of the Android operating system, different types of system memory and different processor speeds.
Which tablets performed well?
In the page loading test, the iPad 3 topped the poll with a time of 10.8 seconds, closely followed by the Acer Iconia Tab A700 (11.6 seconds) and the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 (13.2 seconds). The Toshiba Excite 10.1 came in last place in the ranking with a time of 15.6 seconds.
In a battery life test, the time to drain a battery during video playback, Apple’s iPad 3 again came out on top with a time of 10 hours 46 minutes.
This was closely followed by the Google Nexus 7 with a time of just over 10 hours, and the Asus Transformer Prime TF201 with a time of 8 hours 22 minutes. Last place was taken by the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, 6 hours 20 minutes.
Google Nexus 7 out on top
The Google Nexus 7 was deemed to be a great budget buy, with features such as a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and price-performance-optimized version of the Tegra 3, as well as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean helping to set it apart from the competition.
Asus’s Transformer Pad Infinity T700 took first place in processor and memory performance, as well as an Android-only benchmark test.
Apple may still dominate the tablet market in sales terms, but rival devices performing so well it may only be a matter of time before consumers start an Android migration.
