About this app

Benchmark the performance and battery life of your smartphone and tablet with PCMark for Android. See how well your device performs, then compare it with the latest models.

Work 3.0 benchmark
See how your device handles common productivity tasks— browsing the web, editing videos, working with documents and data, and editing photos. Use Work 3.0 to measure the performance and battery life of your device with tests based on real applications.

Storage 2.0 benchmark
Slow storage speed in a device can cause annoying lag and stutters in everyday use. This benchmark tests the performance of your device's internal storage, external storage, and database operations. You get detailed results for each part of the test as well as an overall score to compare with other Android devices.

Compare devices
Compare the performance, popularity, and battery life of the latest smartphones and tablets with the Best Devices list. Tap any device to see a side-by-side comparison with your own device, or search for a specific model, brand, CPU, GPU or SoC. You can even filter the scores by Android version number to see how OS updates affect the rankings.

The experts' choice
"PCMark is actually a solid example of mobile benchmarking done right."
Alex Voica, Senior Marketing Specialist at Imagination Technologies

"tends to test every aspect of a mobile device, unlike microbenchmarks that can often miss aspects of the system that can affect performance."
Ganesh TS, Senior Editor at AnandTech

"Battery life is generally difficult to quantify due to the huge variation in potential workloads...The best test we have for this is PCMark, which performs a few common tasks instead of purely synthetic loops."
Matt Humrick, Staff Editor at Tom's Hardware

Outstanding app. It's lightweight, easy to use and best of all it compares your device to others in the same category. I only used it to benchmark my A2 SD card and the results I got were on par with the ones I obtained from Crystaldiskmark from my PC using a USB 3.0 card reader. This app does what it says without the annoyance of ads.

It hasn't been updated for years. Can't even full screen on S20. Please update to support newer devices and Android SDK. Edit: found an option to make it full screen, but PCMark won't show any past test results. "My device" section remains blank.
