VRMark for Android will test the Readiness of your Device for VR

Written by Hassan Abbas

It is difficult for a typical user to understand which smartphone meets the requirements for launching content in virtual or augmented reality, and which one is not. But such a tool already exists, this is the VRMark application, and recently it was released on Android.

VRMark is a test suite for evaluating the readiness of a mobile device to VR and AR, which was originally available on a PC. The app contains three tests – the so-called rooms. The first two (Amber Room and Purple Room) are designed to test the maximum performance and ability of the gadget for long-term playback of virtual content without heating and slowing down. The third Indigo Room test is a familiarization mode that includes several excerpts for evaluating the quality of VR using headsets with Daydream View and Google Cardboard support.



When you run the first two tests, you do not need to connect to the VR headset. Therefore, if you plan to buy, for example, Google Daydream, but do not know whether your smartphone or tablet will work correctly with this accessory, VRMark will help you in this.

The app was not found in the store. 🙁

The results of all tests are displayed in the form of diagrams, they can be compared with other results of a similar model of the device, as well as look at the rating of the best smartphones for VR and AR. To run VRMark testing, it is desirable that your device meets the recommended requirements:

  • Operating system: Android 7.0 or higher
  • Memory: 1 GB
  • Processor: ARM
  • API: OpenGL ES 3.1 or OpenGL ES 3.0 with MSAA support
