LG G4 Review: A Competent, Capable Android Alternative

Performance: CPU and Device

AnTuTu’s latest benchmark returns a number of scores—too many to graph so we’re including a look at all the numbers in a table. This test measures subsystem performance in various areas like Database IO, Storage IO, CPU (Int. and Float), GPU (3D), and RAM (speed).

This suite of tests puts a variety of strains on the system, largely testing general performance on routine tasks that you're likely to encounter in an average day. The LG G4 held its own, largely hitting within the range of scores achieved on the HTC One M9 and both of the new Samsung Galaxy S6, which we view as the handset's closest rivals.

The MobileXPRT benchmark runs through a variety of tests to evaluate the responsiveness of a device along with its ability to handle many everyday workloads. The G4 fared well here on the individual tasks, though across the board it fell a bit short of the marks posted by the Galaxy S6 duo.

GeekBench does a good job showcasing a phone's ability to handle straight CPU workload. The G4 did decently, outpacing all of last year's Android phones, but it still fell short of the marks set by the octa-core Samsung Exynos-powered Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, or the octa-core Snapdragon 810-powered HTC One M9.
