LG G5 shakes hands with Snapdragon 820 to shatter AnTuTu records: benchmark test scores

The new LG G5 is not only a phone with an innovative and radical new modular design, it is also an extremely powerful phone running on Qualcomm's top-end Snapdragon 820 chip.

The Snapdragon 820 is Qualcomm's top chip for early 2016: a quad-core SoC with the first Qualcomm-made 64-bit Kryo CPU running at up to 2.1GHz and in conjuction with 4GB of RAM.

How does that work out in real life? We're yet to find out in detailed tests, but we got the phone for some quick benchmark testing and the results are nothing short of impressive. In fact, the LG G5 breaks all AnTuTu records that we know of, here are the scores we got:

  • AnTuTu: 133,054
  • Vellamo Metal: 3,500
  • Vellamo Browser: 4,925
AnTuTu

Samsung Galaxy S7 136695

I couldn't care less about benchmarks but just want to say that this is the winner for me. S7 didn't surprise me with anything although waterproofing is always awesome, but overall I feel that G5 is better device

This antutu is really confusing for me. Is it V6.0.1? Couple of weeks ago iPhone 6s was said to score some 133000 ish points. What the heck? Plz some one clearly put up Geekbench 3 results for single and multi score..

This just old website hit pitch tactic. Get everyone talking how Sam behind. Lg so great and iphone right there still. Mid march Sam should do what we call a BustOut. They will go on ahead after final tweaking. Lg had to throw all in right now. But just wait it will change

Sorry but Pa does not have updated scores. Here's my iPhone 6s plus antutu score.https://plus.google.com/u/0/114188354242437759670/posts/5fTRXX2iLgg?pid=6254003640117848242&oid=114188354242437759670
Like I said only 50 points lower than the G5

You're prepared to take a smaller battery over a larger battery + water proofing all due to an AnTuTu score? I've now officially read it all here at PA! :'D

G5 have wide angle camera which is essential for me taking video of my chess games. Plus the audio module might be something since I'm a audiophile (own thousands of dollars worth of headphones and equipment). Price of g5 and phone buff speed test is what I'm going to decide from. I hope g5 is significantly cheaper, otherwise I'm going with the year of free Netflix

Wow! That is much higher than I expected.. Im still not convinced that we notice the difference between last year's phones and this year's with regards to flagship speeds

The G4 had DDR3-933 ram and the G5 has DDR4-1600 ram. Which is 40% more power efficient then the DDR3 ram.

Antutu is most broken benchmark. Look at better benchmarks like GeekBench.

Geekbench is for iPhones. Anything else is better than Geekbench. It sucks.

So tell me about good benchmarks. I will know in future :-) I know that Antutu is bad and I was thinking that Geekbench is ok.

Geekbench tests CPU core speed only. No GPU, no RAM speed, no UI rendering etc.

Yes. So there is more reliable benchmark than Atutu with this tests?

Samsung stopped cheating after Note 3 but LG and HTC continued to cheat and likely still are.

50. HomerS (Posts: 155; Member since: 19 Sep 2014)


And Samsung doesnt cheat, the Exynos 8890 can go up to 2,6Ghz when only 1-2 cores are in use, otherwise 2,3Ghz, check the Anandtech site

PhoneArena has NEVER been able to get benchmarking numbers right. I've been here since 2008 and it hasn't gotten any better.

LG could literally score 1 million on the benchmarks and people would still complain about them. Smh...

Kudos to LG!

Curiosity... This is an LG G5 article, correct Victor H./PA???

So, why are GFXBench scores shown here of which LG G5 is not shown to be a part of? Was it not a part of the tests? Did it not score in the top 3? Or, can PhoneArena simply not have an article about a phone doing well at something without also including an iPhone showcase?

46. Droids-R-us (Posts: 29; Member since: 17 Sep 2012)


The results above are not very helpful because they should be stating Single core, Multi core and On screen performance for each phone in separated sections, the results above are very random and non-descriptive. PA also need to include every phone in each section for comparison. To be fair though PA did say they were preliminary results, I do still feel, in this form, these are pretty much useless figures.

Good score but this is just a prototype not the actual that will be sold yet. There will be a lot of changes when the actual will come says lg on androidauth. I cant wait for the real thing.

Phonr Arena has posted the benchmark score for LG G5 and galaxy S7 using Antutu v6, while for note 5 and rest of old devices it is posting score with Antutu v5. There is huge difference between these two version in reporting their score.

I don't think any of these iphone users realize that antutu doesn't take into account your screen resolution, so both the GS7 and the LG G5 have 1440p screens while the iphone's have 1334x750 for the regular and 1080p for the plus. This would drastically change if either phones had the same resolution as the Android flagship counterparts. Your iphone wouldn't top 80k with a 2k screen, while either of these 820 machines could top 150k easily with a 1080p screen instead.

Seems like the performance gains the Samsung has over the LG G5 can be boiled down to the cooling system the GS7 has. The G5 is passively cooled, which obviously limits performance slightly.
