Performance Testing of an HTC Touch Pro (AT&T Fuze) against an HTC TyTN (Cingular 8525)

November 17, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

 

With my previous Windows Mobile phones– Audiovox SMT5600 and an HTC TyTN (Cingular 8525)– I did not do much in the way of changing WM registry settings to try to improve WM performance or otherwise configure the device beyond basic application settings (ringers, power, other standard stuff).  This time around– with the HTC Touch Pro (AT&T Fuze)– I figured it was worth my time to see 1) how much the AT&T customizations affected device performance, 2) how much enabling Exchange email sync and running TouchFlo would affect performance, and 3) if the HTC Advanced Configuration settings I was applying were doing anything.

The following programs are available to test performance on WinCE-Windows Mobile platforms (all are free for personal use):

 

Here are just the results from running Spb Benchmark on my old HTC TyTN (Cingular 8525) and new HTC Touch Pro (AT&T Fuze) in various configurations:

*Y1: running programs: TouchFlo. Adv Config Cust: Perf>FSCacheSize=2MB, Perf>FSFilterCache=4096, and a few other minor settings which shouldn’t affect the tests.

*Y2: running programs: TouchFlo, ActiveSync (corp email sync). Events/Notifications on, Adv Config Cust: Perf>FSCacheSize=2MB, Perf>FSFilterCache=4096, and a few other minor settings which shouldn’t affect the tests.

*"Pocket World document open" test skipped as it Failed in all configurations even though it appears on the device as if the test is running properly.

Findings:

1) AT&T Customizations which include enabling TouchFlo (as it’s not run by default in the Base ROM), don’t hurt device performance much and help in other areas.  I only ran Spb Benchark a total of three times for each configuration, so it’s possible with more runs the numbers would smooth out more and more accurately reflect the configuration.

2) Through some arrangement of the settings my phone has arrived at, I have somehow hurt file I/O in a major way.  Without digging into it more it’s hard to say how– is it Exchange email sync?  Is it the HTC Advanced Configuration changes?

3) As for how effective any HTC Advanced Configuration changes are, that’ll have to wait for another time as I didn’t want to spend too much time on this activity.
