Susan, I too think that including Chinese smartphones in the mix is very interesting. Considering the growing number of mobile users and smartphones in China, the move is timely.

Like the "benchmarketing" term. (I noticed BDTI is marketing its benchmarket study in this article--marketing benchmarketing.) It will be interesting to see the results of the study. I'd like to compare BDTI results to Consumer Reports'.

I think testing should happen in US and China at least during the first year of test. I'd like to see if there's a difference in results. Interesting story. Thanks, Junko.

Patrick, "benchmarketing" ain't bad.

The reality is, though, no matter how skeptical and cynical you might get with benchmarketing, benchmark results are often touted and marketed aggressively by those who have money, power and vested interest.

Junko,

Benchmarks should be renamed to Benchmarketing. (Did I just coin a new term?). I have been involved with becnhmarks since the PREP benchmarking days for FPGAs in the late 1980s and the early 1990s which were gamesmanship at best. Benchmarketing - that's what it is - your mileage may vary ...

So I guess the door is open for someone to go to Mediatek, Nvidia or Broadcom and develop a competing smartphone benchmark.

One of the most frustrating things for reporters is this. When we ask chip vendors about the performance of their apps processors for smartphones, for example, their answers tend to be specific numbers based on the benchmarking results of CPU and GPu; or they would respond: "Well, it all depends on use-case scenarios."

I'd love to have some answers based on system-level benchmarks -- a tool that measures the performance of a whole phone, based on specifics that consumers care about.
