Leaked LG G5 Geekbench result hints at high-end performance
An alleged LG G5 prototype has made its way in the Geekbench database ahead of the February 21st unveiling. The listing delivers no surprises in terms of internal hardware, but it does remind us to expect high-end performance.

This new Geekbench result is actually for an LG smartphone going by model number F700, a natural progression for the G5 following last year's LG G4 F500 and LG V10 F600. 

Geekbench lists the LG G5 with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, specs which all fall in line well with previous LG G5 rumors.

Unofficial benchmarks are not a strong indicator of real performance. However, judging by leaked Geekbench results, there will a natural performance similarity between the LG G5 and the North American version of the Samsung Galaxy S7. Both phones are expected to feature the Snapdragon 820, and both phones are said to feature 4GB of RAM.

Leaked LG G5 Geekbench result hints at high-end performance


LG has been trying to build up hype in anticipation of the official unveiling, which is set to take place in less than two weeks from now at MWC 2016. Yesterday, the manufacturer officially confirmed that the LG G5 will come with an "Always On" display mode while also teasing fans by revealing the silhouette of the phone.

According to previous rumors, LG will go all-in with the LG G5, and all evidence now points that LG's upcoming flagship will make use of the fastest internal components. However, it remains to be seen if the other rumored specs and features, such as a 5.6-inch, a slightly curved QHD display, an all metal design with a removable battery, and 20MP primary camera with manual settings, will also be accurate.

Or depending if the rumor are true the M10 will be a beast as well.

But LG G5 dual camera setup is what interest me most of all the new thing.

This time Galaxy S series won't have any advantage over the competition in term of performance which sound awesome. seems this time we can make decision on looks features then feeling owing an underpower phone. LG G5 yes feels more interesting to me too. cuz it have new design.. but still LG G5 need to improve its software.. I wish they use AMOLED instead of LCD. I didn't like G4 or V10 displays especially V10 after comparing with number of phones.

For real, has ANY of last year's flagships felt underpowered for you?

I had an amoled phone for three years (GS3) without a hint of burn in. As for saturation, the Note 4 on have had the the most color accurate displays on the market.

Though I may not be getting the G5.. The specs of it gives me hope of getting the second generation v10.. Wch should be a powerhouse and hope it'll challenge the note 6..

I hope this time Samsung put more powerful processor in Note 6 then what we see in S7.. especially they should use more powerful GPU for Note 6.

I have to ask, do you find yourself actually using said edges on the galaxy edge? and if so for what? I've been pondering between normal and edge for a while but I really have a hard time imagining what I would use edge features for.

9. Mreveryphone (Posts: 402; Member since: 22 Apr 2014)


I have the S7 edge plus and I use them from time to time. Apps edge and People edge are really handy. I think there are supposed to be new edge features coming with marshmallow so stay tuned.

It's not just about what the edges do, but also the feel of it feels thinner and good with cases and the device has no bezels and to me looks amazing. The only thing I use with the actual edges is the night clock. I don't find anything usefull with the actual edges but I like the feel and look of it. The edge is a defo must get out of the edge and the regular version

Im gona tell u this. The edge is completely useless for me. Its just aesthetics bro!

27. rubyonrails3 (Posts: 245; Member since: 01 Oct 2014)


Yes correct its just Aesthetics also usability is affected too especially on edges.

Yes, its subjectively okay. But better optimizations may push it a bit longer which i am searching in lg's flagships.

turning up to be a stiller device. I will choose between LG G5 and S7, if 5.5 inch S7 Plus ever made it. Otherwise G5 is the soul device to chose

The curves on the G4 was the best design. Shame the G5 will now look like a Galaxy.

Well I guess last year Moto, LG couldn't have high end performance cuz they used SD808.. so sort of news seems legit ;)

33. wargreymon (Posts: 671; Member since: 05 Nov 2013)


These are 4 strong cores. Android may use all cores in big.LITTLE setups, but they are never used to full extent. Most apps would benefit more from 4 stronger cores than from 8 weaker.

The SD820 uses 2 high performance custom A72 Kryo cores and 2 energy efficient custom A53 Kryo cores, but rumor has it an octacore variant is in the making at request of various companies.

They are still more powerful than Cortex-A72.

Hopefully the battery life will be a lot better than last year.

34. wargreymon (Posts: 671; Member since: 05 Nov 2013)


Well, assuming there is no problem with SD820 architecture or Samsungs 14nm node it should be fine. G4 would have had really great battery life if it wasnt for SD808 being what it is.

37. ibend (Posts: 3507; Member since: 30 Sep 2014)


since they have confidence to use always on screen, LG G5 must have great battery life

Galaxy S7 sd820 has better score. The Exynos 8890 is even better even in graphics. With much larger battery, watter proofing, fast wireless charging, force-touch display, ultra fast storage..etc it's awesome

It's looking more and more like the G5 will be the phone I jump my line for. It'll be the perfect replacement for my V10.
