The LG G2 was officially unveiled mere hours ago, and so far we've already heard that all the big four carriers in the US will sell it eventually. T-Mobile and Sprint have already confirmed their intentions, with the other two soon to follow undoubtedly.
The benchmarks Droid-Life ran were AnTuTu and Quadrant, two of the most commonly used tests to pit phones against each other. With a five star rating from AnTuTu and the largest Quadrant score probably someone ever seen, it's a safe bet that the G2 can perform under pressure.
LG G2 when powered on, the 5.2-inch 1080p LCD is stunningly sharp and bright. On the bottom you'll find the microUSB port, headphone jack, and speakers, and the top features only a small IR blaster and microphone. The back cover is non-removable and contains a 3,000 mAh battery, and there is no microSD card slot.
We are all excited about the Galaxy S5 release in about 15 days or so. Here's are some more information regarding to the specs of the two Galaxy S5 variants, SM-G900H and SM-G900R4, showed up on Antutu's database with very different specifications, they literally have nothing in common in-terms of specifications except the camera sensors.
The premium variant (SM-G900R4) of the Galaxy S5. According to the benchmark result, the device is equipped with a Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974AC) SoC with a clock speed of 2.5GHz, Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, QHD (2560×1400) resolution display, 16-megapixel main camera sensor, 2.1-megapixel front facing camera and is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
However, the standard variant (SM-G900H) of the Galaxy S5. Benchmark reveals an Octa-core Samsung Exynos 5422 SoC with a clock speed of 1.5GHz, ARM Mali-T628 GPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, Full HD (1920×1080) resolution display, 16-megapixel main camera sensor, 2.1-megapixel front facing camera and this unit is also running Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
Samsung would be launching two versions of the Galaxy S5, during the launch last week, the South Korean manufacturer unveiled only the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 based version of the device.
The SM-G900H featured an Exynos eight-core CPU with clocks of 1.5 GHz, ARM Mali-T628 GPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and a full-HD screen. The numbers are identical to the benchmarks seen on GFXBench today, with a few differences. The CPU clock on the GFXBench test is at 1.3 GHz, which is what the four Cortex A7 cores run at.
The four Cortex A15 cores on the Exynos 5422 are clocked at 2.1 GHz. It is likely that the benchmark was run with only the four Cortex A7 core enabled. Or it is possible that Samsung was intentionally throttling the CPU to gauge how it functions at lower frequencies.
We should note however, that smartphones can be fairly easy be manipulated by the manufacturer to run at underclocked CPU speeds, and even to make a display run at below native resolutions, so this might be Samsung testing the phone's behavior in various situation.
