Letting Basemark X Make Our Devices Sweat
Once you've opened up Basemark X, you're greeted with a simple user interface. There's the Basemark X logo in the top left, the bottom left has 'Options' and to the right we have the following three options: Start Test, Results and Exit.
Jumping into Options, we find a bunch of graphical options we can play with. The top options let you play with the anti-aliasing settings, which can be either 2x, 4x or a stressful 8x - lastly, anti-aliasing can be completely disabled.
The second option we have here is the Run Mode, which can be set to Test for benchmarking, or Demo to take a look at it. The last option we have is On Screen. This option is the most important, where you can choose the resolution Basemark X will be run in. On-screen will run Basemark X at your devices' on-screen resolution - which varies from device to device. There are two other options, which we prefer - off-screen 1280x720 and 1920x1080.
These options are the most logical choice for reviewers, as it pits devices against each other in a much fairer way.
Back to the main menu we go, and we'll take a look at the Results screen. This is a simple menu that shows you the results of the benchmark you've just run, so depending on how you've benched your phone, you'll be displayed with your two results - on-screen and off-screen.
In the top right of the Results screen is a tab for 'go to Powerboard', which is Rightware's comparison list. You can see what other devices are scoring, which is nice. I would've loved to have seen some more social integration, which 3DMark for Android has - so I feel Rightware has some growing to do with Basemark X, but I guess it's still early days.
