Benchmark Results for the LG Optimus 4X HD Show Impressive Results
Originally unveiled at the MWC (Mobile World Congress), the LG Optimus 4X HD would be LG’s first flagship in 2012. While the South Korean company hasn’t shared us the actual release date for the phone, some amazing benchmark results have circulated in the Internet, which tells us what we should expect from the phone. The benchmark involves a Snapdragon S4 quad-core smartphone, the HTC One X, and they put up some impressive figures in both the ANTuTu and Quadrant benchmark tests.
In the Quadrant benchmark, the LG Optimus 4X HD produced lower benchmark score compared to the HTC Once X, putting the 4512 mark below the 4909 score obtained by the HTC One X. Fortunately, LG’s upcoming smartphone held its own in the AnTuTu test with 11,147, which is slightly above HTC One X with 11,030.
In the hardware department, the upcoming LG Optimus 4X HD is definitely no slouch, however, considering LG’s history, which is littered with software issues; consumers may need to temper their expectations somewhat. Experts pointed out that during the development stage; the pre-release software of LG Optimus 4X HD appears to be struggling, due to LG’s sluggish UI that is slapped on the top of the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The smartphone may arrive somewhere in May, while the HTC One X is now already available in some stores. At some point in the future, the phone will arrive on T-Mobile’s network. Unfortunately, Nvidia Tegra 3 doesn’t support LTE capability, that’s the reason why HTC choose Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 for the One X instead.
