LG G Pro 2 Review: See You 2morrow: Synthetic Benchmarks

Synthetic benchmarks

LG G Pro 2 is powered by what until recently was the standard-setter in chipsets, Snapdragon 800. The four Krait 400 Central Processing Units (CPU) cores are clocked at 2.26GHz, with an Adreno 330 graphics chip @ 450Mega Hertz (MHz) and 3GB of RAM. According to the system status apps, about 200Mega Bytes (MB) of Random-Access Memory (RAM) are reserved for the GPU, while the rest is available to the OS.

The LG G Pro 2 runs the latest Android 4.4 KitKat. The Operating System (OS) is supposed to be lighter and more responsive thanks to Project Svelte, which optimizes memory usage and overall system performance. KitKat also support the latest OpenGL 3.0, so you can like the best graphics to date.

Until we acquire a chance to test the overclocked Krait 400 in the latest Galaxy S5 or the newer generation Cortex A5x, the standard Krait 400 Central Processing Units (CPU) clocked at 2.26Giga Hertz (GHz) is still the reigning champ. The single-core performance varies across devices but consistently holds on to the top of the charts.

Now let's go on to the GPU testing. We ran GFX Benchimprint T-Rex (GFX 2.7, OpenGL 2.0 test) and Manhattan (GFX 3.0, OpenGL 3.0 test) in both 1080p off-classy screen and on-screen, which is also the native classy screen resolution for the current crop of Android flagships. The G Pro 2 matched the Snapdragon 800 competition on this test. Naturally, the LG G Pro 2 does worse in the on-classy screen tests compared to the 720p devices, but is once again on par with the rest of the S800 crowd.

The LG G Pro 2 has demonstrated top performance so far, but what happens when it comes to web benchmarks? The JavaScript performance is on par with the other Snapdragon 800-powered smartphones. The overall browsing performance (BrowserMark 2) is top notch too, beating every smartphone we've tested so far, but the Galaxy Note 3 Neo.

The LG G Pro 2 runs Android 4.4 KitKat and the latest LG Optimus UX glitch-free, posting overall better numbers than an Android 4.4-running Galaxy Note 3. Even with the recent crop of flagships just around the corner, the LG G Pro 2 will be able to hrecent its own. After all, the Snapdragon 801 chipset has the same hardware with just a small higher clock speed.
