Samsung Galaxy S II vs LG Optimus 2X benchmark tests - guess who scored 3732 on Quadrant

0. phoneArena 30 Apr 2011, 03:13 posted on

We ran Samsung's Exynos chipset against the first dual-core phone with NVIDIA Tegra 2 silicon, the LG Optimus 2X, and the Samsung Galaxy S II results on the synthetic benchmark tests went off the charts...

Just look at the FPS counters in the video to see what I mean.

@ios5 where the hell riding you get the information that LG has a better screen than gs2? you are highly misinformed even the original galaxy s has a better display than the LG.

Samsung are making most components for their smartphones and tablets and LG bought some components from other companies.

Samsung is a winner in research and developments in components that Apple and others are depend on.

@Lzoe yes LG 2x has better screen its LCD IPS panel the screen looks like blasma TV and Super Amoled looks like LED TV?! i try out the Super Amoled with galaxy s and LG opitmus 2x i know that Super Amoled plus its diffrent than normal Super Amoled but still it looks like Super Amoled. still prefer Sony Ericcson Arc Mobile BRAVIA engine screen for watching youtube video and movies belive that its better than both!

Good to see the optimus keep up with that Samsung beast I have a g2x should be even closer when the g2x gets 2.3 but I still love that Samsung

One thing that should be mentioned:
The Galaxy S II is capped on 60 frames per second, while the Optimus 2X is capped on 120 frames per second. This tends to skew results for GPU benchmarks. (Note how much more frames it's getting in the relatively weak "Planet" test in Quadrant. Meanwhile, the S II would've likely gotten much more in Nenamark if it hadn't been capped.)

Okay, we need to bear in mind that the Galaxy S 2 runs on a 1.2 GHz dual core chipset, whereas the Optimus 2x runs on a 1 GHz dual core CPU. That's about 400 MHz of difference right there. It's almost like you're comparing the Wildfire with the Incredible S. Plus the GS2 runs on Gingerbread whereas the Optimus 2x runs on Froyo. Upgrade it to Gingerbread and then we might have a fair comparison. As all may know, dual core CPUs run better and faster on Gingerbread or Honeycomb. But of course, we can't take away anything from the Galaxy S 2. It is a remarkable device indeed.

In terms of display though, there is no match to Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus. It probably is the best there has been and to be honest that has been their major selling point, the displays. So this seems like a slightly unfair comparison to be honest. I personally would like a comparison between the Motorola Atrix 4G and the Optimus 2x. That would be more fair I think. Good day.

fagmuffin.. that isnt 2 cores running at 1200... its 2 cores running at 600 to make 1200....lol.

Wow, I have a lot to learn from a nutpicker like you. So according to you the Galaxy S 2 has four cores? LOL :D

You crack me up man, big time :P

i believe your wrong. if im not mistaken its 2 1.2 gigahertz processers. why would they need to give you 2 processors for 200 extra megahertz when old phones run 1 gigahertz or 1000 megahertz with only one processor that doesnt make sense broseph.i guess ignorance is bliss

@remixfa... i think its you who is wrong lol its 2 cores running at 1.2ghz.....follow this link if you dont believe me.

your link is dead.

but yes, i was incorrect about how the clock speed is calculated. I was thinking back to an ariticle about power consumption and how one of the cores turn off and the other will drop mhz to conserve battery when not in use.. which makes them better juice sippers than single core...

Still.. ragmuffin, going from 1ghz to 1.2 ghz is not 400mhz of difference which is what i was commenting on to begin with. Its 1 chip running at 1200mhz with 2 cores in it. that doesnt mean its really a 2400mhz chip, which is what you seem to be implying by the 400mhz comment. The cores arent added together to make a new number. the mhz is the mhz.

for those confused with dual core the clock speed remains the same but the ability of the device to process data is faster depending on how many cores are used

hope this helps clear this =)

And... What can you do with this GHz multicore toys?

Playing Infinity Blade? No.
Playing RealRacing2? No.

Only running stupid Benchmarks :P

Hi!
I was just curious about them,but I HATE arguments about Android vs. Android phones,'cause both of them are very good.I just bought my SGS(1),and now I'm very happy with it,well satisfied as well.
But guys,please don't hate LG,or SGS2,hate iPhone,Apple,or everything else,but not Android.We must hold together.Share things,enjoy things together,not flaming each other,b'cause somebody loves LG,somebody loves Samsung.
Love both of them.Peace.and hate Apple,if you want to hate on something.

It's also the magic of android you can love Samsung and hate LG even if both deliver a good user experience, but cmon I agreed with someone that has a low end phone (hate those) things can be possible

Where is this supposed everywhere? Be real, the Android fans bring up iPhone comparisons first. iPhone fans are in the minority if you want to be honest, or at least they seldomly comment on these articles. Go ahead thumbs down me. It seems almost every logical and rational comment is thumbs down because it's contrary to this Android crave. Grow up.
