Speed Test - WiFi / Cellular speed test

Review

When speaking of Cheetah Mobile, we must start with the fact that the cheetah is not a fish of blue sea (let alone being not a fish at all). Cheetah is a fast predator that fights for leadership among the peers and receives it. So it is with the developer that plays on crowded places like galleries or optimizers. Its QuickPic and Clean Master have become industry standards, nevertheless. So what does this carnivore company offer at speed test market?

Design 5/5

There are two ways to design apps; one is to offer all one might ever need, and make it available, and the other is to leave no space for mistakes. Cheetah Mobile obviously tends to the second option, and it works. There is one button on its home screen, with minimum info on how many devices are detected in the same network. You only need to press “Analyze” for scanning the network and getting the result.

Blue colors are the mark of Cheetah style; so this app is also all white and blue. As the app has done its scanning, it displays the result on the same-colored screen.

Well, the app design is first of all laconic. The only thing you really need to know is your actual speed, the developers think. So it’s the only one you see, and it’s perfectly, unmistakably readable.

Content and Features 4/5

When compared to some other Wi-Fi scanners, we see how much this one doesn’t do what others do. In fact, the only thing it does is measuring the speed of your connection by connecting to its servers and downloading and uploading special pieces of data.

When you’re connected via Wi-Fi, it offers you Wi-Fi check, regardless of your mobile status. If you want to check your mobile Internet, you’ll need to turn off your Wi-Fi manually, and then the button in the middle is checked.

In Settings, there is not much to explore. You can select Wi-Fi power saving mode, check new Wi-Fi connections automatically, check security features after connecting, and clean your device of potentially dangerous Wi-Fi connections. Well, all of this makes sense as options, but there isn’t much you’d use daily.

There is no space for mistakes, we have noticed. In fact, there’s too little space for anything else, as well.

User Experience 4/5

While functionally this piece by Cheetah Mobile looks poor and limited, it’s only for the better when it comes to usage. The app doesn’t require a single action from the user but tapping a single button. Then it does the checking and leaps out with the result.

The result is presented in the most visual way. Not only you see the numbers of kilo- or megabits per second, but you also read what this speed is good for. The lowest speeds detected are characterized as “good for chatting”, then comes video streaming, HD video streaming, and video conference mode.

It’s OK that the developer couldn’t help some self-advertising below the result, because you don’t even have to scroll down there.

Compatibility 4/5

With its iOS-like minimal style, the app is only available for Android devices. The version depends on the device you use, but we’ll suppose that the app will be good with Android 4.4 and maybe even 4.2. There’s no version for any other platform, alas.

Conclusion

If you only need to know your connection speed and possible security issues, you’ll be good with this app. Small in size and easy in usage, it will satisfy you, though it doesn’t provide nearly as detailed stats as pro analogs do.
