As and when a new flagship smartphone, the upgraded one is launched in the market, the expectations are always higher. With the LG G3 having a Snapdragon 801 chipset supported by Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB RAM, both the performance and the benchmark score results are expected to be good. But although the performance was swift, the benchmark test results weren’t the best, or at least what one would expect from such a powerful device.
Before talking about the benchmark scores in particular, let us talk about the internal specs of the device we tested. It is the Korean variant of the LG G3 (F400S), and it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, a quad-core one which is supported by Adreno 330 GPU, and there is 3GB RAM in it. The highlight of the phone is the 2560×1440 pixels of screen resolution, and the LG G3 runs the Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS.
LG G3 AnTuTu Benchmark Score
The Antutu benchmark score in the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5 are on the top of the list, while the LG G3 could get just less than 31000 points, which is kind of, shocking. Given that the device is new and so there is no much content too, the score should have been high but it didn’t happen here. The Xiaomi Mi3 and in fact, the predecessor to this the LG G2 had got a better score.
LG G3 Quadrant Standard Benchmark Score
This was even more surprising, because even lesser than half of the expected score was seen, especially comparing with the other flagship smartphones. The score we got was just around 5800 while it topples over 12000 is several phones, even the last year flagship devices. One thing we could conclude is here that there is some issue with this particular device we have, because there are a few sources who noted that the score they got was better than what we saw.
LG G3 Nenamark2 Benchmark Score
The Nenamark2 score was the only point where we were happy with the score it got. It gave a score of 59.4 fps for the graphics output, and that is quite good, thanks to the Adreno 330 support given to the Snapdragon 801 which renders the high quality graphics with ease.
What’s the reality – How is the LG G3 performing?
As far as the performance of the G3 is concerned, it was quite good. When we testing the device playing a bunch of different games we found it to be one of the best and there were no lags as such and even while multi tasking on the same the device was perfectly able to manage any task provided to it. The UI feels a bit sluggish once in a while and is not something which everyone would like but apart from that the device has a good form factor making it easy to use.
Most of the flagship smart phones launched in 2014 had a Antutu benchmark score around 35000 to 40000 while the G3 had a decently lower score but the point proved here is that these scores mean nothing when compared to the performance which we get in actual from these devices.
