LG G2 scores nearly 30,000 on AnTuTu

LG G2 scores nearly 30,000 on AnTuTu
Once the hoopla over the launch of the Motorola Moto X dries up, New York City will be the home to another smartphone unveiling on August 7th. That is when the LG G2 is expected to see the light of day. While the Moto X seems to have captured much more attention, there is no reason for the LG G2 not to produce drool at a mere glance of its specs. And the lack of front and side buttons could also have you looking forward to touching that uniquely placed volume rocker on the back of the handset.

The LG G2 took a spin through the AnTuTu benchmark test using the code name LG-D802 and tallied an impressive score of 29,909. The first smartphone to offer the combination of the quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and 3GB of RAM, power users spanning the globe are going to be drawn to the device. Toss in a 5.2 inch screen, 1080 x 1920 resolution and a 13MP rear-facing snapper and we could be looking at a serious challenger in the Android market for the latter months of 2013 and early 2014. Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed out of the box.

Wait i thought the 3 GB of ram was unconfirmed?

It will definitely have 2 gigs of RAM. Samsung only started to manufacture the modules that add up to 3, and they intend to use it in the Note III first, which comes out after the G2 (plus I'm not even sure LG uses Samsung memories).

Note 3 would have 40000 I think :)

I would buy this if it was running TouchWiz or Sense UI. LG's UI sucks balls

Touchwiz and Sense UI suck just as many balls.

Only touchwiz

I'm not a fan of LG's Optimus UI either. I thought maybe they would overhaul the whole thing like HTC did with Sense on this one, but from that recently leaked video, it's looking like the answer is no.

Wait a month and root it, install custom /stock/ ROM?

Just 33-34k. Over.

there was one reported here with 36K.

Oddly results, or outlier figure, should not be concluded as the representative number of a fluctuative number. 1.6GHz Octa has experienced 31-32k point Antutu on several handsets, while GSMArena's one scored only over 26k.

See the huge benchmark discrepancy for the exact same Qualcomm 800 chipset and gpu and ddr3 ram? So is Sony cheating and a disgustingly shameful company too or do people just like to unfairly call out Samsung because they are butthurt about them being more successful than their "insert fave company here" ? I am guessing the latter is accurate.

Don;t you see the differences of Sony's Flow UI to LG's UI and Touchwiz? Think first before you comment hello.

Are you saying Sony's UI and LG's UI better than Touchwiz? If yes, in what way?

37. Taters

Lol I think of everything unlike most people here. Sony's skin is pretty bloated and shouldn't score higher than the rest. The Xperia Z skin is MUCH, MUCH heavier than stock Android and it pushes way more pixels at 1080p and the benchmarks on that still creams the Google Nexus 4 with a measley 720p screen and feather light stock Android, despite them having the same S4 pro chip set. You do the math. Your logic is completely flawed and you shouldn't ask someone to think before they comment when you don't.

You can run a benchmark again and again and you will still get a different score. There are times you can run AnTuTu and get 30k and the next time you run it the score may be 33k. The benchmarks can usually fluctuate a few thousand.

AnTuTu score is pointless, change the kernel and scores will change, that just doesn't make sense since the HW remains the same. Trust the benchmarks AnandTech runs, they are as accurate as it can get.

Hardware is dependence on kernel, a phone smooth or not, fast or not depends on how the kernel tweak and interact.

Yet more sophisticated benchmarks produce more consistent results over kernels and units. The SD800/A330 is a much bigger leap in performance than 25k to 30k, as shown in the proper CPU and GPU-centered benchmarks. Dunno why AnTuTu is the most popular, but ppl. could not have chosen a worst tool, sometimes there are 5000pts difference between the same phone but different units while both are capable doing the same.

And I don't have the slightest clue as to why the Moto X has gotten so much attention. Their best product , the Razr, was like 10 years and it wasn't even that great of a flip phone. Since then all they have done was the Atrix and some ugly looking Droids. I am aware of the Google factor but even Google seems more buddy buddy with Samsung and LG than they are with moto. While the LG Optimus G and Nexus 4 were pretty awesome 2013 phones. this should get a lot more buzz than the Moto X. It is weird how Americans think sometimes.

CAUSE MOAR GHZ AND POWERZ = BETTER. The Motorola X is the most innovative phone released in a long time. It will prove that benchmarks don't mean anything for performance.

I never mentioned anything about specs. Using recent accomplishments or resume as a predictor, which is how we hire people and judge someones ability in the real world, puts LG way ahead of Moto. The Motorola X hype is out of left field for sure. There is zero reason that it exists unless you actually think the Droid Maxx was that good. I certanly do not.

you know..i really do not trust anything any more coming from ASIA except JAPAN. they just copy everything. Hack they even copy themselves:)) lg g2 is nothing else but galaxy s4. For me personally the top 4 smartphones of 2013 untill now are nokia lumia 1020, htc one, moto x, sony honami (even if it's not released yet). this is just my opinion.

In G2 form it will kick ass for about 3 months. In Nexus 5 form it will kick ass for 2 years!

LG is going to be the first one again but I'm afraid that the final execution will be poor, as usual

What's wrong with the execution of the optimus g? hell of a phone, if you've ever held one
