The past week has been quite crazy in my lab here in Australia. Last week I thrashed my devices with Futuremark's new 3DMark for Android, this week Rightware have given out Basemark X. Basemark X strays from the competition in that it is ready for all devices - iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
This gives us some room to move in terms of what we can show you in our results, where we can finally throw Apple's latest and greatest smartphone - the iPhone 5 - into the same ring as the Android-based devices. This has me excited, as I've been waiting a while for this day to come. And here we are.
Rightware have been on the scene for a while, and you're most likely familiar with their other products such as Basemark ES 3.0. Basemark X is an entire new ballgame for them, something Rightware will use for a long time to come.
Rightware have gone with a landscape UI for Basemark X, with the entire application never going into portrait mode at all. It gives the UI more space to move, but it feels weird to be using an application purely in landscape that isn't a game.
It doesn't prohibit Basemark X from any functionality, but I would've liked the option to use the benchmarking software in portrait if I wanted to. Let's move on and take a closer look.
