LG V20 Review: Android Nougat-Infused And Feature-Rich

LG V20 AnTuTu 6 & GeekBench Scores

AnTuTu’s latest benchmark returns a number of metrics ranked with nebulous scores, rather than frame rates or time to complete. We tested with the latest version of AnTuTu across all platforms including Android, iOS and even Windows Phone. AnTuTu returns four top level performance metric results that we are including here: CPU, RAM, 3D, UX (or User Experience), along with a total score.

AnTuTu is also kind to the LG V20, where the Nougat-powered flaghip scores near top of the pack yet again. The V20 was close behind Samsung's rather hot topic lately, the Galaxy Note 7, and not much further behind the Moto Z, which runs a near bone stock implementation of Android Marshmallow. 

Synthetic CPU Testing

In this GeekBench test, we're stressing only CPU cores in a handset (not graphics), with both single and multi-threaded workloads. GeekBench has refreshed those workloads lately in a recent updated release, however, so we have fewer phones to compare to as a result, though many of the current flagships are still represented here. 

LG V20 GeekBench Scores

GeekBench offers a different perspective of performance, where the LG V20 clocks in more middle of the pack. The variances among the group are much tighter here, however, with two notable exceptions. Apple continues to engineer its SoCs with superior IPC (Instructions Per Clock) throughput per core and the iPhone 6s' single threaded performance outclasses all. And then there's the octal-core monster Kirin 950 SoC in the Huawei Mate 8, with its ARM A72 cores, that takes the multi-core metric by a wide margin.
