Got an LG Q6 from Fido Store

Last weekend, I went to the Fido store at the Brentwood town center. My old cellphone is Jianguo YQ601. I used almost two years.

Now I feel the old one is too slow and its battery can only run 4 to 6 hours. Just one week before, I received the txt message from Fido. It gave me an exclusive promos. Two years plan, free LG Q6 smartphone. Small plan is enough. So I bought this  LG Q6 at the store.

When 4G connected, I did a speed test.

4g-speed-test

Fido has LTE 1700 first.  Now it starts to enable other bands, including 700 and 2600,  to whole Canada. That is why my cell phone, YQ601, does not always get LTE, or 4G connection. Because YQ601 has 2100/1800/2600 only.

PHP 5.4 is a little bit faster than PHP 5.5. Both PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4 are almost 1 second faster than PHP 5.3.

Performance between PHP5.3.3 and PHP5.5.12

I installed PHP5.3.3 and PHP5.4.28 at the same time in one VirtualBox guest OS.

Basic information.

  • Host OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
  • VirtualBox 4.3.12
  • Guest OS: CentOS 6.5 64bit with 512MB base memory
  • PHP5.3.3 is installed as mod_php
  • PHP5.5.12 is installed as php-fpm with mod_fastcgi

 

Run PHP BENCHMARK SCRIPT to get the total time.

php-benchmark-5.3.3

The total time of PHP 5.3.3 is 6.746 seconds.

php-benchmark-5.5.12

The total time of PHP 5.5.12 is 5.628 seconds.

I  repeated the test many times. The average difference is 85%. On the other words, PHP 5.5 spend 1 second less than PHP 5.3.
