HTC Amaze 4G Speed Test Caught On Video

We’ve been hoping to see more of the HTC Amaze 4G on video and thanks to one lucky individual our hopes have been met if only to see speed tests and quadrant scores. If you’ve been itching like we have since the Amaze 4G announcement to see how it would perform on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42Mbps network than pay close attention to the video. These tests are coming straight out of Chicago (next year Cubbies) and we’re liking what we see. We’re especially liking speeds that can reach close to 15Mbps knowing we’re not going to come close to the theoretical network top speed of 42Mbps. Of course we do hope as these phones are released and the network is optimized that we can reach into the 20+Mbps range.

Oh and you wanted a quadrant benchmark score? Well that’s good because this video has that as well showing us the phone is capable of putting up a quadrant score of 2477. In fact just check out the whole vid for a few more speed tests and the full quadrant demo.

    Speed is good, but that ping is terrible.  That will really slow down page loading.

      Giving it the benefit of the doubt, It could be that the network isn’t optimized yet, and if that is the first phone on the network, speeds will be incredible.  Remember Verizon’s LTE hitting 30+?  Now it averages between 5-12 just like Sprint’s WiMax.  But anyway, impressive.

        I average 12 in LA and the pings are usually less than 70ms. That’s much better than Sprint WiMax in this area.

          I’m in Orange County.  Not sure what’s going on with Sprint right now, but the network last week was great, getting almost 2mbps download, and 1mbps up on 3g (yes, that’s fast for CDMA) with 90-ish ping.  But this week is back to being a dog.  4g is a different story, 5-9 consistently, 1.4 up (capped) with a 100-ish ping.

      • THE Verizon & Sprint Guy

        Oklahoma City 45.80Mbps d/l & 10.28Mbps u/l ping=74ms on Vzw LTE on a non-rooted Droid Charge during peak hours…tested it again 1 hour later after a power cycle 30.82Mbps d/l and 6.75Mbps u/l ping=61ms on the Droid Charge and Thunderbolt since I joined Verizon on 3/19/11 and these speeds are always consistent BUT there are times when 4g LTE just drops to 3G or 1xRTT…speaking of Sprint they have a HUGE announcement on 10/7/11…wonder what it will be hmmmmm

          Wow, awesome speeds. It’s slower here in California, but that’s probably due to there being more people. The Sprint announcement is going to be improved reception, switching from WiMax to LTE, and probably something else, but I’m sure we’ll be surprised.

    Nice speeds. But they will not be allowing users to get even close to 42mbps, still. Great speeds. But for real speeds, go to speakeasy or cnet speed test. Their test is right in your phones browser!

    I can’t wait to see what the Galaxy S II will do. Good job T-Mobile.

  • Ilyas_k15

    I am so torn between this and the GSII. Can’t… decide……………….. Brain… malfunctioning

      Let me help.  Galaxy S II. It’s cheaper AND better.

  • Zigfreid5

    My mytouch 4G gets 2400s with a custom rom and overclocked cpu. I thought I saw a screenshot or two of the gs2 getting over 3200. Not impressed with the amaze. I’m waiting for an ice cream sandwich phone before I burn my upgrade, though.

    • Anonymous

      im in the same boat as you.  I like the amaze, but with rooting the mytouch4g it makes an awesome phone even better.  Im thinking im waiting for the ICS phones.  Might just get the new nexus.

      Quadrant’s aren’t a good basis to compare phones especially when considering one is running at WVGA resolution and the other at qHD.  The Amaze 4G is a qHD phone so it has to churn out more pixels which affects the quadrant score.

    • Flashy4bb

      Trust me the gs2 will be on top of the amaze 4g. Its qt will be between 3000 and 3500.

      • Anonymous

        and that will only be because it’s running at a lower resolution that the Amaze.  Again, not a fair comparison.  I’m sure the Amaze will be just as snappy as the GS2

    • Devin Irvine

      Well, the other thing is that he used the regular bench mark and not the one that is specialized for dual core phones.  If the test was done on the proper benchmark app you might see a different score.

    thats lame… my nexus one.. gets up to 12mbps … in a small town … tmobile.. and a friend has sprint n the old evo.. goes up to 12ish on 3G n like 21ish on wimax…. small town again… called stockton ca.

    • http://twitter.com/Jrperiod Lord Bailey

      12mbps???

      Isn’t the N1 supposed to max out at 7mpbs+? My N1 if i was lucky got 2 and change. in NYC

    • http://rpad.tv RPadTV

      I don’t believe your numbers for a second. The Nexus One’s radio doesn’t support the speeds you claim. Neither does Sprint 3G.

    • Anonymous

      The nexus one has a max hspa modem of 7.2mbps.   You’ll likely see between 3-5mbps on that phone at most.

    • NotTryingToBeAJerk

      Sorry Sprint phones can’t hit 12 Mbps on CDMA 3G.  Makes me wonder if the 21 Mbps WiMax figures you speak of are fake too?  

      Sprint 3G doesn’t do anything faster than 3.1 Mbps in theory and usually is less than 1 Mbps in real world tests.

      It’s alright, everyone, everything that comes out from Stockton is a lie! Hella ghetto city, doubt T-Mo has any reputable data speeds out in any of the cities out in the Central Valley. Maybe Fresno, but nah not in the whole 209. SF doesn’t even get those speeds, I was showing 1.5-3 on my N1 out by the Haight.

        “It’s alright, everyone, everything that comes out from Stockton is a lie! Hella ghetto city, doubt T-Mo has any reputable data speeds out in any of the cities out in the Central Valley”   Jeff, thats a pretty broad generalization of a whole city and its people!!!! But I do agree that this particular individual is lying through his teeth.

      um, the Evo can’t hit any speed higher than 3.1Mbps and the Nexus One can’t hit any speed higher than 7.2Mbps

      Stop using mobilespeedtest to measure network speed, you’re embarrassing yourself.

  • BigMixxx

    Better than Centurylink DSL, really close to bonded DSL speeds….
    Hell I was getting 5 down on my HD2 and I’m averaging 8 on my G2x.  Once things are optimized, I expect it to keep that 14 or so meg down 2 up.

    Now I’d like to see a data plan that’s reasonable for LOTS of usage….

  • Anonymous

    How long does it take for those speeds to hit the different data caps?

    • Awd111980

      Exactly!!!!!!!! 

    • Auser72

      The ability to stream data faster doesnt increase the amount of data of the content you are streaming. The amount of data doesnt increase or decrease relative to the speed its going. However most people are prompted to USE more data because of more options (fluid multi-media streaming) of increased data speeds.

        Right.  Don’t blame the data speed, blame your lack of self control.

      If your driving habits are the same, would you drive more miles on a Ferarri than a Prius just because its faster?

        With Mileage=Data, not MPG. Cause you know someone is going to make that analogy.

    From what I’ve seen T-Mobile users in 42 Mbps areas have the closest experience to what Verizon’s LTE speeds give today.  In some areas equal or even slightly better.  

    I wish T-Mobile had 42 Mbps widely deployed with enough backhaul to back it up. Backhaul is T-Mobile’s biggest problem.  In many HSPA + markets only a small handful of towers have fiber connected to them leaving the others with poor 1.5 Mbps T-1 speeds shared with everyone like in my town.  

    • Anonymous

      That’s a lie, most of the towers in my city have fiber backhaul and the ones that don’t have recently gotten 3G and are in low traffic areas.

    • smylax

      Yeah this is false. In Atlanta all 3G and 4G towers have fiber backhaul.

    I noticed the Wifi Calling app wasn’t in his app drawer in this video?

    Will this device support Wifi Calling????

    • Anonymous

      It does have WIFI calling but you need to update your sim card to the one it comes with in the box for it to work properly. If you get this device, make sure they activate the new one that comes in the box and update your sim.

  • Anonymous

    I played with some older OCed phones and tablets, browsing over wifi is faster despite same speed because the overclock loosens the chip bottleneck. In addition, the lower latency and speed stability make for a even faster web.

    As for this test, we are gaining on two fronts, the phones and networks are speeding up towards 42 Mbps while the CPU/GPU combos are able to chew through that data faster.

    Touchwiz is the #1 reason to take the Galaxy S II over the Amaze 4G. Seriously, it’s a ram hogging resource sucking waste of space on HTC’s phones. TouchWiz is much better than Sense 3.X

  • Anonymous

    Noisy a** camera lol.

  • Jackofalltracks

    Does this or the GS2 have UMA/WIFI Calling?

    • Gabe41521

      It doesn’t come with but an ota update will come through and add it after release

      • Guest

        OTA software update from Samgsung??? I wouldn’t hold my breath.

        Don’t get me wrong, I am debating on which of the two phones to get at lunch … but if history is any indication HTC takes better care of the past devices/supporters than Samsung.

  • Auser72

    Form over function Dilemma. Like the form of the Amaze over the SGS2 but Like the function of SGS2 over the Amaze. Either one wouldnt be a bad trade off, just dont want any regrets after purchase. If only I could get that super amoled plus display on the amaze.

  • Junior

    Does the dedicated camera button allow you to actually take the pictures, too, or do you still need to press the on screen button for that?  I like the idea of whipping the phone out of my pocket to snap a picture, and having the shutter button be at the top of the device (when held sideways) is just a more natural feel for photography.

    • J-Hop2o6

      Of course, lol

      • Junior

        I could only assume – the videos from the release party only showed them pressing the on screen button.  Thanks :)

    Who cares that it will only support 21Mbs? 

    It is done and rocking in China.

    I’m in Chicago and my Galaxy s 4G gets exactly same speeds as Amaze. Quadrant score with custom ROM is about the same too.

  • Rapoport

    I get 12 to 13 mbps on my Galaxy S 4G as it is now, so this is not much of an improvement.  At least things are moving in the right direction though.

    For CPU benchmarks, CF-Bench is better for dual-core devices.

  • HandSolo

    I was able to run four CF Benchmark tests with the Amaze today, and it consistently came in just above or below 5000.

  • UnknownOne1993

    does the amaze 4g also have dlna like the galaxy s ii? other than this, all i need to see is the camera quality and video quality before deciding on one of the 2 phones.

    • J-Hop2o6

      I think mainly Samsung puts DLNA in their phones.

  • Anonymous

    yup and I’m so disappointed. a long time ago we all saw that pic the the hercules pulling in 3359 in quadrant, but in that video it pulls in under 2400. so it’s safe to say that the pic for the hercules was running the exynos CPU and it did not super dual carrier 42 mb/s hspa+ :( I’m waiting for the nexus prime it gets announced on october 11th!

  • Nash

    All of this speed is useless because at this speed you use up your data limits so fast!

  • Jesus Lopez

    I am happy to see HTC come out with an updated smart phone,
    I love that the Amaze comes with a dual core processor and that it has Android version
    2.3 already installed. Paired with my employee Sling adapter from DISH Network,
    the Amaze will be the ultimate mobile device. With the Sling adapter, I can
    steam live and recorded TV to my Android device everywhere I have 3G coverage
    or WiFi. DISH is actually offering free Sling adapters, so if anyone would like
    to get one you can find more information available at http://bit.ly/iKbJ4Q.
