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

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

My 6s on average hits double than what's posted above for 6s... Am I using a different Antutu app?

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 808 wasn't known to be good to batteries but I'm thinking this 820 will be better

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

Check again. PA's scores are lower than other sites. 130,000+ is what I've been seeing so idk what the hell they did.

iPhone 6s scores 135k in Antutu.. yet they put wrong numbers like 54k.. I don't think they bias Apple..

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.
