My EVO 3D scores just under 4000 on Quadrant.

Try RL Benchmark and see what those times look like.
Nice I will give it a try. It was a little confusing as Quadrant seen both of my cores on the Samsung.

Could this be the reason for the low scoring??

Re: Samsung Galaxy Tab vs. Archos 80 Gen9 Comparison Videos.

As for the processor I did not see any real advantage in performance of the TI processor over the Samsung, especially the 50% faster that is being touted by Archos. In my Quadrant Benchmark Scoring test the Archos got a 1664 and the Samsung got a 2289 which was surprising to me as all the talk abou...

Re: Samsung Galaxy Tab vs. Archos 80 Gen9 Comparison Videos.

The difference is only $130.00 more, and if you add a 8gig sd card to the Archos that difference will shrink to about $115.00, that really is not a lot, considering the build quality of the Archos. What!!!? Archos 80 G9 = $269 Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 = $499 Difference = $230 = Archos 80 G9 is nearl...

Re: Samsung Galaxy Tab vs. Archos 80 Gen9 Comparison Videos.

If you are having a price difference of appx. $150 between the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the Archos 80 G9, that's not less than 50% increase! How can you say, that's "only" $150 more?! The Samsung-Tablet might be the "far better" tablet, but it's also "far more expensive"! (btw in Germany the price di...

Re: Fairwell Archos, you have been great to me.

I agree with both of the last two posts. I my self need a much higher quality tablet. Now with that said, I will be getting my daughter a new Gen9 10.1 with the 3g dongle. As I think it will suit her for her needs. As for her Gen8 10.1 well that one is getting bequeathed to her 3 year old son to pla...

Re: archos g9 display glass or plastic

Most of the new HTC phones have Gorilla Glass, and there have been hundreds of pictures of people's EVO's being utterly destroyed (as far as the screen is concerned). The GG doesn't really add anything, it's just a proprietary mixture to make the glass that happens to be a little more resistive to ...

Re: Trying to build custom themes I need help with compiling

OK, so I did some digging and what I have found is that the file size of the original framework-res.apk is 9.32mb. Once I rebuild it whether I modified anything or not the rebuilt .apk is only 7.34mb. Upon further inspection it seems to leave out all of the "value" named folders from the newly built...

I am trying to create a custom theme, by modifying the framework-res.apk. I have been successful in porting some really cool .png files, but my problems start with the de-compiling & recompiling the .apk so I can modify the .xml & .9.png files. It seems every time I recompile my .apk it sends me in ...
