    This is in regards to Daniels post, and the discussion that follows:
    http://www.windowscentral.com/nokia-...video#comments

    So I made a quick program that will measure the rotation time in CPU ticks. I did not take the time to change the icon or loading screen, so do not complain! It is just a quick and dirty rotation timer thingy.

    I ask that people do it, and report their results. I suggest everybody does it at least 20 times. It reports total times orientation changed, current orientation, orientation change time, and average time.

    So, hold it in portrait, rotate it left, rotate it back to portrait, rotate it right, back to portrait, rinse and repeat until you have an average after 20 changes!

    You need a developer unlocked phone to install it, and it is called OrientationSpeedTest, so you will find it under the O's in the app list, fyi!

    What to report:
    Average time after 20 orientation changes.
    Phone type!
    Phone info, so go to settings, about, and hit more info.


    For me.

    Samsung Focus (rev 1.3)
    OS Version 7.10.7720.68
    Firmware: 2103.11.8.1
    Hardware: 3.1.0.7
    Average CPU ticks after 20 changes: 158


    EDIT: Well, it will not let me attach it to the forum or upload it to the forum. So SkyDrive to the rescue hopefully!

    EDIT B. I had a typo in my ticks at first!

    HTC HD7 16GB (non-S version)

    OS Version 7.10.7720.68
    Firmware: 2250.21.510002.728
    Hardware rev: 0002
    Average CPU ticks after 20 changes: 101


    So is higher or lower ticks better? I'm assuming lower?

    Is this a measurement from the time the devices sensor realized there was a change until the screen completed the rotation change?

    Such a test would exclude the idea that the sensor was more sensitive and if the 710 did have a more sensitive sensor it would just add more time on top of your findings.

    (I also have a Samsung Focus 1.3 and would agree with the initial results that it appears to change MUCH slower than all those demoed.)
