LG G2 first battery test results surface

LG G2 first battery test results surface
The LG G2 has definitely captured phone aficionados attention - it sports a nearly bezelless 5.2” full HD display, powerful Snapdragon 800 chip, a 13-megapixel OIS camera and the unique volume rocker on its back. How does it fare in terms of battery life, though? With a 2610mAh stacked battery that allows the device to be very thin, can it also be long-lasting?

First battery tests show that the device does great in some battery benchmarks and not so good in others. Which ones? When 3D apps and games kick in the load from the 5.2” full HD displays hits the battery hard and the handset lasts way below your average premium smartphone.

Results from the battery test are right below and it includes cream of the crop devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Apple iPhone 5.

Test results are presented at 100% brightness and at a lower brightness level, measured at around 230 nits, good for indoor use.

You’d notice that in certain use cases like the browser, the LG G2 performs great thanks to use of Graphic RAM, or GRAM, a graphic memory cache. If you browse the web long, the G2 will definitely not disappoint. In video playback it also has an above average score, but its 3D apps that drain it really quickly. Take a look at the results below.

So, can we expect this for all devices sporting the Snap 800 or only LG G2? I'm curious as to the battery test results for the Sony Ultra for comparison. It too uses the Snap 800 as will the Note 3 which is why I'm concerned. I really hope the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 is all it's hyped to be!

The battery is very decent on the SD800 S4 (AMOLED).

Web browsing is impressive, video playback is tolerable though not AMOLED level. The SD800/Adreno 330 is a hungry beast at gaming.

The international version has the 3000mAh battery I believe. That extra juice should help with the gaming.

I'm not really impressed with it doing ever so slightly better than the Note II. It needs to do significantly better than the iPhone 5. Battery life is such a damn issue with android.

These results are useless.

This is the KOREAN MODEL with a 2600mAh battery.

The rest of the world will get a 3000mAh battery,

Don\'t forget about processor differences. G2 is 2.26GHz vs the Note 2\'s 1.6GHz. That\'s a 41% increase in clock speed.

Then there\'s the display, 1080x1920 vs 720x1280, more than double the number of pixels to render and update.

Saying the Note 2 is better on battery is like putting a Corvette against a Civic and saying the Corvette sucks because the Civic got better MPG. If you required that Civic to go as fast as the Corvette you\'d need some crazy mods and its gas mileage would no longer be better.

Apples and oranges...
