Android Tablets From Google and Samsung -->
Agawi's findings are part of its latest TouchMarks benchmark that measures touchscreen latency of popular smartphones and tablets. Most discussions on touchscreen displays are about pixels per inch and quality of image. Agawi has created the world's first benchmark that measures how fast a touchscreen responds to touch -- as important a factor as display image quality.
Agawi's TouchMarks II report measures the Minimum App Response Time (MART) scores of popular tablets, and the results are surprising. The iPad mini, with a response time of only 75 milliseconds, is more responsive by a factor of 2X when compared to the Google Nexus 7 and the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0.
However, in another surprising show of performance, the new Kindle Fire HD touchscreen also beat the more expensive Google Nexus 7 and the Galaxy Tab 3.
Agawi is making the benchmark, and the methodology, openly available on its website, and invites the industry to join in outlining future TouchMarks benchmarks that it plans to publish.
"App responsiveness is judged by how quickly an app can respond to your touch inputs," said
