LG AKA Review: Eye Contact: Performance

Performance

LG AKA is powered by the dated Snapdragon 400 chipset, which packs a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor running at 1.2GHz, Adreno 305 GPU and 1.5GB of RAM. Over the past year we've tested a plethora of Snapdragon 400-based smartphones and the chip proved the bare minimum for a 720p device. Hopefully the extra Random-Access Memory (RAM) will give the AKA an edge.


LG AKA does OK on the multi-core GeekBench 3 test - it's on par with other Snapdragon 400 devices, but the Cortex-A7 is slightly behind its A53 successor, found in the Snapdragon 410.

The compound AnTuTu 5 stacks the LG AKA next to similar devices as the Moto G and One mini 2, but it also puts it very close to the 64-bit Xiaomi Redmi 2.

Unfortunately, the LG AKA does slightly poor than its siblings on the BaseMark Operating System (OS) II test, where the web browsing score is hurting it the most.

The BaseMark Operating System (OS) II Cortex-A7 scores for the single and multi-core performance are about correct for the processor's class.

The Adreno 305 graphics accelerator wouldn't be our choice for a 720p display, but it is capable of handling the Operating System (OS) perfectly, and some non-demanding games are well playable as well. The Adreno 305 turned out on par with the newer Adreno 306 within the Snapdragons 410 chip, but much weaker than the mid-range Adreno 405 (Snapdragon 615).

Kraken 1.1 by Mozilla reflects the JavaScript capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy A5 while Rightware's BrowserMark 2.1 offers an evaluation of its HyperText Markup Language (HTML) 5 abilities. In Kraken 1.1 the LG AKA does OK - on par with its competitors.

BrowserMark returned and even better overall score, besting all but the Galaxy A5.

It's clear that the LG AKA is no speed demon, especially with such a dated chipset. All the benchmarks show a middling to lower discontinue performance in raw CPU/GPU, but do a very fine job on the JavaScript/HMTL 5 tasks. Sure the AKA isn't fit to handle the graphic-intensive games but it is perfectly adequate for day to day tasks of any kind and that's what matters the most. The UI is fluid and we saw no lagging unless we decided to heavily utilize QSlide small apps.
