LG Optimus G benchmarks
Saying that we were pretty excited to check out the LG Optimus G first hand would be an understatement. After all, it is the first Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro based device, sporting a very capable quad-core processor humming at 1.5GHz, reinforced by Adreno 320 graphics and two whole gigabytes of RAM. Droolworthy specs indeed. To no surprise, the pre-production unit that we got to play with for a while was very responsive, thus solidifying our positive initial impression.

Yet if you don't take our word for it, here are some benchmark results demonstrating how the LG Optimus G compares to other Android high-end smartphones. Impressive figures, don't you agree?

It's over 9000!

Quadrant scores doesn't really paint true picture...apart from cpu scores nothing is trustworthy...my one x with msm8960 topped at 4901 overall...2d=962 and 3d=2046...and this is with 225 gpu...compare it with what we have from 320...almost similar results...if I overclock msm8960 to 2.0, then except cpu...it can trump apq8064 on evrey other score per quadrant...I don't believe quadrant much!

Watched the video and I'm not quite sure exactly what's wrong with how it switched orientation other than LG's horrible transition color choice.

yea man i seen the video and i did shake my head at the orientation switching........at first i thought the dude wasnt holding correctly but then it jus seemed to be lag......so i dont know about LG but i really would like to see that rumored HTC X5 come into play soon

In addition to the downsides, I just had a look at the hands on video, the aspect ratio fits nicely on the lumia 920 (4.5") but this 4.7" is just too wide..

It's most likely the way in which accelerometer timing has been implemented (i.e. "switch orientation if phone in portrait mode for more than 2 seconds"), nothing to do with CPU power. But who knows...

hey saw that comment on youtube :)
yeah as i said in the reply, its not the time that it takes to rotate thats unbelievable, its the time it takes everything to load. Or re-load should I say. By now these companies should have fluid, no-lag experience of just simply switching icons around.

The N9/L800 design is the only one i find beautiful enough for comparison as far as minimalist designs are concerned

AnTuTu score tells more than Quadrant.
My GS3 scores over 14,000 on AnTuTu.

LG FAIL.

8. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)


So you scored 14,000 on antutu, good for you... soooo I am assuming that the S4 Pro will probably out score your GS3's regular S4 by maybe 2 or 3 thousand.

Not sure why you posted "LG Fail" when everyone knows that the Optimus G is arguably this years fastest Android device ever.

My GS3 is the International Quad Core Exynos version. Good try though.

14. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5592; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


i'd still project this going 1 or 2k over the International SIII due to the slightly better architecture and better GPU.

posted on 18 Sep 2012, 00:47 5

17. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)


Oh so you have the International version with the Exynos, nice... You see here's the thing.. the S4 Pro, is also a Quad core.

Im not sure if you've heard about the S4 "Pro" but its kind of a "big deal" You may want to read up on it some, because until now, it was theoretically faster than the Exynos, but now its about to get real.

I've been at this a LOT longer than you have kid. Don't lecture me.

For the 'big deal' that it is, it's numbers aren't doing much to impress.

Get over it.

"You've been at this a lot longer" another statement you can not backup. I am interested in knowing how you determined my age and background. (hopefully not by my avatar)

Also, this "99%" statistical figure you post... seems also inaccurate and more likely to be derived from your emotional rant rather than any sort of reasoning.

Sorry, but if fighting is your objective, I'm not interested. I've even had long discussions with KingKurogiii where we dont see eye to eye on things but atleast we can have civilized discussions... And in this case, he's even concurred with me.

21. baldilocks (Posts: 507; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)


99% of the problem, is the LG software and hardware that it's running on. Give it to Samsung or HTC and then it will be something.

posted on 18 Sep 2012, 01:09

28. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5592; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


HTC? lol, HTC isn't an option if you want a performance optimized device. they're experienced with using Qualcomm SoC's but the problem with them is that their UI's are typically too heavy. if you want to see what the hardware is really capable of see how it runs on a Samsung or maybe a Motorola or you could just try on a Custom ROM.

32. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4010; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


Yeah, HTC needs some work on their UI... Sense 4.1 made it faster, but it's not good enough. I'm hoping the alleged Sense 4.5 coming out on the HTC phablet will be closer to stock.

HTC would still, without a doubt, be better than LG dood....

35. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)


I'm not sure how this is turning into a debate over brands when I think the focus was more on the S4 Pro processor VS the Exynos, but I guess if I can add anything this, it would be that: Yes HTC (overall) is a better choice than LG at the moment. However, this particular model that LG has made is a step in the right direction.

LG has put a some commendable effort into the Optimus G and It certainly deserves a spot in the top Android contenders.

37. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5592; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


it's because some people here don't seem t believe that LG doesn't do the S4 Pro any justice which may be true but naturally that went into what would be an ideal test device.

38. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)


Very true, I think LG is really trying to change that, but their short track record doesnt help.

Personally I think they should drop the "Optimus" name, since it doesnt necessarily bring back great memories.

...Unless ofcourse they call it "Optimus Prime"!! =D

yep, The same thing happened when they showed the power of the dual core G2x (Optimus 2X). That phone was a turd. I had it for over a year and a half and couldn't stand it.

HTC would no doubt optimize it better but there's no getting around how resource heavy Sense is.

touchwiz looks nice and its user-friendly, but all UIs are resource heavy touchwiz is no different. then again i might be a tad partial since i'm using sense 4.1....

68. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5592; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


well...yeah, they all use resources, they're UI's but some are lighter than others like TWUX and Moto's Near Stock UX.

posted on 18 Sep 2012, 15:05

69. remixfa (Posts: 13903; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


yea TW is way lighter than Sense. Sense is the heaviest piece of manufacturer bloatware out there now that Moto Blur has been dissolved.

There is a reason that a samsung device will generally run better than an HTC device even though they are running the exact same chips.

76. true1984 (Posts: 589; Member since: 23 May 2012)


true but sense 4.1 does have a lot of improvements. is it better that TW? i honestly dont know since i refuse to buy samsung phones after my experience with the epic 4g

HI i recently bought Galaxy s3 international variant ... after seeing this i ran antutu my score is 11179... CPU=6449,ram=2314;gpu=1548;ram=871.. and in quadrant i got 6281.. dont know what these numbers mean.. but performance is awesome.. plus on samsung app store in promotion offer got modern combat 3, shadowgun and asphalt 7 free.. plus lg has a poor customer support in my region...

67. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)


Thats good to know. Those are really good scores. The LG Benchmarks show that its slighty faster than your Exynos version of the GS3

...Funny thing is there is a guy on this thread by the name of "Baldilocks" that claims he got 14,000 antutu score.
