LG G4 Preview: A Second Encounter: Performance

Performance

LG G4 is the first smartphone to come out with the Snapdragon 808 chip. elegant Qualcomm announced the 808 revision side by side with the flagship 810 model, but it is only now that we are seeing it in action for the first time.

The Snapdragon 808 offers a hexa-core 64-bit processor with two Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 cores, an Adreno 418 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

According to LG, the chipset is supposed to provide equally fine performance as the Samsung's Exynos 7420 found in the Galaxy S6 - at least for the regular daily tasks.

We ran some benchmarks on a Korean preview unit. The smartphone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop and we'd reckon the software should be pretty much final since the phone is already on sale in its motherland.

LG G4 leaves a lotto be desired in the CPU-centric GeekBench 3 benchmark. The smartphone lags behind this year's crop of flagship smartphone

The trdiscontinue continues in the AnTuTu 5 benchmark, which includes Random-Access Memory (RAM) and storage speed into the mix and is an indication of the overall performance of the device. LG G4 came close to HTC One M9, though it is far from the showing of Samsung Galaxy S6.

Update, May 14: We re-ran the Kraken benchimprint and got a much better result, close to what the Galaxy S6 scores.

We also tried BrorwserMark 2.1 again though it returned the slightly disappointing score from before. We'll investigate the performance further in the review.

Overall, LG G4 didn't impress in our benchimprint performance tests. We will revisit them when we acquire our hands on a retail unit of the device, but the early signs don't see promising.

It is vital to note, that we didn't experience any hiccups while using the smartphone in real life - LG G4 felt snappy and ultra-responsive regardless of the task we threw at it. High-discontinue gaming wasn't an issue either - LG G4 ran Dead Trigger 2 and Real Racing 3 without breaking a sweat.
