LG G2 benchmark: Quadrant, AnTuTu, GFXBench and Vellamo
One of the key aspects of the LG G2 (see our unboxing here) is its super-powerful Snapdragon 800 chipset. While some may see this as an overkill, we can definitely say that G2 users will appreciate the extra power, as it makes the phone move incredibly swiftly and fluidly. The LG G2 is really a no-compromise smartphone that can easily serve as the benchmark for the whole wireless industry right now, and speaking of benchmarks, how about we run a few on the G2?
Don't feel like watching the whole video? OK, then, here are the results, compared to some other hot Android smart phones:
Higher is better
LG G2 20654
Sony Xperia Z Ultra 18158
HTC One 12481
Samsung Galaxy S4 12078
Higher is better
LG G2 35376
Sony Xperia Z Ultra 29732
HTC One 23308
Samsung Galaxy S4 24701
GFXBench Egypt HD 2.5 onscreen (fps)
Higher is better
LG G2 50
Sony Xperia Z Ultra 52
HTC One 31
Samsung Galaxy S4 39
Higher is better
LG G2 1229
Sony Xperia Z Ultra 1153
HTC One 781
Samsung Galaxy S4 704
Vellamo HTML 5
Higher is better
LG G2 2951
Sony Xperia Z Ultra 2937
HTC One 2395
Samsung Galaxy S4 1702
Please note that our LG G2 version has a different software version from the one that the phone is going to launch with, so this might have an effect on some of the benchmark results.

They wanna make it look bad. In the beginning of the video, the previous run in Antutu, it showes 27000 and yet they put the 22000 score. Sucks.

so it's getting obvious now. samsung marketing money in circulation?

I think cause of the heavy skin it's running above vannila Android! ™

That's impossible. I score around the 22000 range on Antutu and 50 fps on Egypt HD 2.5 with my Nexus 4! It's probably those graphic tweaks in 4.3 though.

Antutu it scored 27.5k, but it should be achieving 30k+. Obviously Nexus 4 will have a higher framerate, its onscreen not offscreen. 1080p vs 768p.

really it cant be antutu 22000 mark r u kidding me
5. amansingal14 (Posts: 283; Member since: 08 Sep 2012)
22000 on Antutu and 47 fps on GFX 2.5?
6. itsdeepak4u2000 (Posts: 2341; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)
Very low, I think these are not proper results. Can be seen best in reviews.
7. ckoch125 (Posts: 187; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
That's not really that good. Hope its because its unfinished software and not because of LGs skin.

Here's my (free) advice regarding benchmarks -
1] Stop using Quadrant. It's junk, it's useless, it has no merit.
2] For GFXbench, don't just run on-screen tests. Moto X on-screen numbers will be more than HTC one, because the resolution is much more in HTC One. So, to avoid that also run off-screen tests. Also run 2.7 T-Rex HD C26Z16.
3] Use 3DMark or something very intensive like Basemark X.
4] Check Browsermark, Sunspider, mozilla kraken, google octane, peacekeeper for browser tests.
5] Use Geekbench for CPU.
6] When you use AnTuTu, the final result has no meaning. It's literally ambiguous how they come to this final number. Rather check the sub-values for individual tests.
Just a few observation. It might make people consider your articles more.

off-screen tests shows the power of the chip only while on-screen tests shows how the chip perform on THIS device. So on-screen tests are better representative of the device performance.
22. rd_nest (Posts: 684; Member since: 06 Jun 2010)
I believe both are important. If you want to judge how that particular device performs, check on-screen values. If you want to compare the device with another, use off-screen numbers.

I don´t think so, when I use my device the screen is ON, so there is no reason to run off screen tests. If a oem is putting a higher res screen then deal with it.

I think i will add somethink to your advice:)
Stop using Antutu, everyone is optimizing and tweaking in it, it is absolutely useless. Nexus 4 should in theory get better results than for example HTC ONE but it doesn´t.
Sunspider is also easy to optimize,
3D Mark and Geekbench are the only benchmarks that you can trust at least a little.
23. rd_nest (Posts: 684; Member since: 06 Jun 2010)
I would agree on that. Forget AnTuTu totally.
Also many vendors 'optimize' on basis of Sunspider. I agree on that.

GFX benchmark is all about high graphics and Moto X handles it better than HTC One and others
10. wicpromd (Posts: 266; Member since: 20 Aug 2013)
lower than galaxy s4 and htc one
so this is the way it will break records???
12. thanksly (Posts: 2; Member since: 30 Aug 2013)
I have a g2(korea version).
Antutu score 30335^^

LG phones have always been like this, awesome specs but low on benchmarks. But have you ever noticed that these LG phones are way less laggy than Samsung and other phones. So it do perform in real life but not in benchmarks. From my point of view benchmarks means nothing.
Great phone LG. Now lets wait for the Note 3 and see the battle.

Very odd AnTuTu score there, I get over 28100 on my Exynos 5 Octa GS4, the G2 uses the "more powerful" S800 so it should be scoring in the region of 29,000-32,000.
21. Author2013 (Posts: 1; Member since: 30 Aug 2013)
yeah,it maybe,but you notice that in the beginning of the video, the previous run in Antutu, it showes 27000 and yet they put the 22000 score.
17. bodzio1809 (Posts: 63; Member since: 28 Aug 2013)
Make few tests in this benchmarks and give us a average score. Not the lowest like in AnTuTu...
24. Lethe (Posts: 10; Member since: 30 Aug 2013)
kidding? Benchmark during charging? And even lower result? For what?!
LG need to spend more money~~~~ hahaha
28. Heatfan316 (Posts: 332; Member since: 21 Aug 2011)
You ran the benchmarks while charging, if you do that it will effect the overall score, thanks for wasting our time.

It has the EXACT same internals as every other handset. So unless HTC skimps again and uses the slower DDR2 vs DDR3 ram in their HTC Maxx like they did for the HTC One, the Xperia Z Ultra, GS4 A-LTE, LG G2, HTC Maxx, Note 3 will all be the EXACT SAME s**t minus software and how many pixels they push. Hardware will be almost indentical in performance.
So who cares what the LG G2 benches, its just as fast as the Xperia Ultra regardless of what benchmarks say. Although the Xperia Ultra could perform slightly better because it doesn't have to thermal throttle as much and doesn't have to worry about battery as much but the LG G2 will perform just as well as every other simalar sized S800 device because the hardware is the SAME. Regardless of what the benchmarks say.

Moto X beats Galaxy S4 in three benchmarks!!! that's Awesome n proof higher number of cores doesn't matters it's all about performance

If the First Gen Exynos Octa Core can score 33,000 on AnTuTu and higher across the board of these different benchmarks. Then the result showing on all these devices on this site is not a proper representation of any of these device's capabilities.
35. mustafa.muhammad (Posts: 2; Member since: 20 Sep 2013)
These results have something wrong, every other site states G2 scores about 30,000, you can search youtube for Antutu G2 and find all them are around 30,000, and in your video the last run was about 27000
Please PA repeat the benchmarks, they are affecting every comparison you make (and we make)
