The LG Optimus 3D scores 2958 on Quadrant, Samsung Galaxy S II did "just" 1950
Proving our suspicion that NVIDIA Tegra 2 might not turn out to be the fastest dual-core 1GHz chipset of them all, the LG Optimus 3D, which is powered by a dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP4, was shown scoring 2958 on the Quadrant synthetic benchmark test at LG's presentation.
Our review unit of the LG Optimus 2X, the first dual-core phone with 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset, scored consistently in the 2700 range, but close to 3000 for a stock handset is simply amazing.
We also ran a test on the Samsung Galaxy S II, as Sammy has been totally hush-hush about the capabilities of its Exynos dual-core chipset with quad-core GPU. Our prototype Samsung Galaxy S II unit scored 1950 on Quadrant, which is way less than the other dual-core chipsets, and made us wonder if Samsung's Exynos actually is as powerful as we thought before.
Or, alternatively, it could be the same issue with the file system that warranted the creation of the lagfix for the Galaxy S. Android 2.3 Gingerbread, though, is the first version to feature the new Ext4 file system, which is what the lagfix recreated, so either Sammy has messed with that, or these might be the actual phone capabilities. Not that it matters, though, it is still powerful enough for anything currently out there, and in the final iteration the score might be different.
Have a look at our own Quadrant tests on the LG Optimus 3D and Samsung Galaxy S II below, where the 3D-capable handset scored slightly lower at 2800 than what we saw at LG's presentation, but bear in mind these were still in non-final versions. Regardless, 2800 is the largest result we've tested stock.

LG is bringing it's A-Game now. I'd prefer the Optimus over Sammy's S II

The lagfix created symlinks to nand storage. Not ext4

Looks like same issue that plagued the first galaxy s. See how it stalls at the database tests... hand it over to the community and we'll see that score double. I'll take the classy S 2 over the LG any day.

Samsung Galaxy S II has already been overclocked, hitting scores way over 4000.

I just tested mine new from the store Galaxy SII and scored 3017. So the article is bull shit.
