The Benchmark Scores For The LG G4 Seem To Be Good But Not Great

April 28, 2015 - Written By Justin Diaz

With LG’s latest and greatest handset, there are many things to consider as there will be tons of different aspects about the phone that will be intriguing consumers and making them wonder. For the time being this includes the exact availability dates and any pricing details for most regions. Since the official announcement of the G4 was just this morning, the actual specifications are confirmed with things like the 5.5-inch Quad HD Quantum IPS display, and the 64-bit hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor instead of the Snapdragon 810 like most people thought would be used, since this is the processor LG went with for the LG G Flex 2.

The LG G4 also comes with 3GB of RAM and uses an Adreno 418 GPU to handle the graphics, and it’s powered by a 3,000mAh battery to keep it going all day. How does it stack up in the benchmarks though? Since we have been able to get our hands on the device at the live event in New York, we were able to do some tests to see how it scores in a selection of different benchmarks compared to the competition. We ran the G4 through benchmarks using both Geekbench 3 and AnTuTu to see how things look, and while benchmark scores should really be looked at as more of an indicator of how the device might perform than an exact measure, it’s still no substitute for real world performance. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the scores for all the tests.

First we ran the LG G4 through geekbench 3 to gather the multi-core scores and the single-core scores for the device compared to other top flagship devices from various other OEMs. The LG G4 being a newer device than anything else it was compared to in the test seems to have scored higher than flagships from last year which is no surprise, coming in with a single-core score of 1113. When it comes to the multi-core score it comes out with a score of 3187. When it comes to AnTuTu, it comes out with a total score of 44599 which seems quite high, but according to the benchmarks that is still lower than some of the handsets which were launched months prior to now, including devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the Meizu MX4, and even the OnePlus One. As stated above, although the scores aren’t painting a very exciting picture in terms of processing power for the LG G4 compared to other flagships from this year, it’s still not a completely accurate depiction of how the device will run or feel for you personally during everyday tasks.
