Motorola Droid Turbo 2 And Droid Maxx 2 Review: Shatterproof And Value Android

Performance: CPU and Device

AnTuTu’s latest benchmark returns a number of scores—too many to graph so we’re including a look at all the numbers in a table. This test measures subsystem performance in various areas like Database IO, Storage IO, CPU (Int. and Float), GPU (3D), and RAM (speed).

This suite of tests puts a variety of strains on the system, largely testing general performance on routine tasks that you're likely to encounter in an average day. The Motorola DroidTurbo 2 again provides better scores than the Motorola X Pure Edition, thanks in part to a particularly high RAM Speed score.

The MobileXPRT benchmark runs through a variety of tests to evaluate the responsiveness of a device along with its ability to handle many everyday workloads. Although the Maxx 2's overall score ends up being on the lower end of the systems we've recently tested, it manages to eke out a win over the Turbo 2 in the User Experience section. 


GeekBench taxes the CPU cores in a handset, with both single and multi-threaded workloads. This is another test in which the Maxx 2's hardware keeps it on the low end of the comparison pool. Then again, this is the budget phone and you're bound to sacrifice power at its price point. At the other end of the chart, the Droid Turbo 2 provides some competition to the Galaxy line, but can't quite match those Exynos-powered scores, at least in this test.
