LG Spectrum benchmark tests
There’s no arguing that the LG Spectrum has a lot to live up to after Verizon customers have been treated to stellar 4G LTE smartphones like the Motorola DROID RAZR, HTC Rezound, and Samsung Galaxy Nexus. In the processing department, it’s outfitted with a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM – so you know it’s on par to those other devices in terms of raw processing power. However, some of us place a good amount of emphasis on benchmark results, so we’re here to see what it’s capable of putting out.

As usual, before getting into the nitty-gritty portion of the benchmark tests, we take a look at the handset’s performance out of the box. Considering that it’s featuring a 720p display and the LG Optimus skin running on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, it would normally give us some worries due to the added processing powered required to operate the handset. However, it actually exhibits the same rate of performance as its contemporaries when it comes down to executing basic tasks – like navigating across the homescreen or running apps. Though, we do notice just a hint of choppiness while interacting with one the preloaded widgets, but it’s nothing detrimental. In all honesty, it seems to offer the same level of performance to devices like the HTC Rezound and Motorola DROID RAZR.

Not surprisingly, the results we’re given with the Quadrant benchmark test aren’t all that alarming, seeing that it’s indicative of any other dual-core processor we’ve seen from Qualcomm’s camp. In fact, its scores range within 2,300 to 2,700, which aren’t mind-blowing per se, but quite fitting for its processor. Meanwhile, the AnTutu benchmark test puts up an overall score of 5,986 for the LG Spectrum – again, it’s a respectable mark that tangles with other reputable devices like the Samsung Galaxy S II. So what does it all mean for the smartphone? Well, they're actually very normal results we’re seeing out of the handset, meaning, we’re neither impressed nor disappointed – albeit, we’ll be seeing how it’ll perform in the next few days during extensive testing to give our final take.

Wow, my phone scores wonderfully on this benchmark, so I can totally....umm...out call other people? Oh yeah, wait a minute...these are PHONES. The next time you wonder why your phone gets 25 minutes off a charger, remember your demands that your phone has a quad core cpu and LTE radio.

it may be in line with what you'd see from a Rezound but NOT from a Droid Razr.
not a totally bad phone though. LG was smart to not price it at the premium $300 price point. btw i dislike the new Google Search Widget.
