GSMArena feature labs: The tests

26 April 2012
The GSMArena Labs are tests designed to give an objective account of how a device performs in real-world scenarios. In short, it's about what you can expect from a gadget you're planning to buy. Our tests are constantly being developed...

      PhoneAddict, 18 Nov 2021I wish it had a longer battery life on webbrowsing. 12:37hr... moreTotally agree on the first part... 12hrs is a bit too short for Web-Browsing.

      The second part was offending though. Nothing wrong in being a women and categorising one as chatty as a woman is a bit too what may I call it "sexist". And FYI I've got sisters and can guarantee that I talk much more on the phone (Zoom Call dial-ins) through out the day more than all the respected and amazing women in my life. So kind request, lets keep judgements out of here.

        Just peeved at them for only one reason; they don't do a complete review including Battery Endurance Test for mid-ranger phones (which is what I'm focused on - not a gamer but a mostly work on apps specific to the Browsing capabilities). Hence curious on the Browsing Time + Talk Time. Thats all!

        GSMArena Team should create a new list of Battery Endurance Stats for phones which are available for sale; new list should exclude the older phones which are no longer available i.e. > 2years old smartphones should be removed from the looooong list. Their numbers can be included in their individual Specs List Battery Life Test numbers.

          ali, 10 Apr 2020please describe how you score smartphones and quantify them... moreThey can't Mate. They are an informative website not a rating agency. Moreover, if they rated a phone as 4.7 in 2020 - Q4 will the ratings still hold true for the same phone in 2022 - Q1 ? (e.g. iPhone 12 Pro Max would have gotten a ~4.9/5 rating in Q4/2020 - by Q2/2022 would that rating still apply?) Then in such case they would have to devise such a dynamic rating scales which would evolve overtime with the introduction of every new phones. For a rating you may refer to other sites but we love GSMArena for its informative description of the phones and their reviews which is quite comprehensive compared to other reviews we get on the net.

              I wish it had a longer battery life on webbrowsing. 12:37hrs is still pretty weak... On the other hand I care less about the talking time for calls. It's not that I am calling all day. I am not a woman...

                yes, please reintroduce the audio lab test data.
                the music sample test is very nice, but it would be complimented by the raw audio data results, which was always premium section in very review.

                  please don't discontinue lab audio test
                  my previous phone was asus max which shows 93db snr in your lab test
                  my present phone asus 6z snr only 85db

                    Some older reviews have two scores for the endurance rating with and with AOD e.g. Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 and Samsung Galacy A7 2017. Are all the newer endurance rating scores with AOD disabled?

                              The brightness in the display tests for many phones has values that are lower by more than 10% when comparing to displaymate.com at 50% APL. Are the values for 50% APL or 100% APL?

                                        I have read your review on Realme 7 Pro. Coming to Speakers quality it was not good and mobile was VIBRATING at back panel. Have you observed this from your end while reviewing the product. Thanks...
