For some time, the LG G3 was tipped to drop with truly top-of-the-line specs across the board, with its QHD resolution ably complimented by the spanking new Qualcomm Snapdragon 805.
Alas, we had to make do with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801. Well, we say “make do”; a new report suggests the new Snapdragon 805 model ain’t much faster.
PhoneArena relays figures from a couple of benchmarks, starting with Quadrant, where the QS805-rockin’ LG G3 scores 24,660 compared to 23,551 with the QS801. Meh.
Over on AnTuTu, it’s 33,991 points for the QS805-powered LG G3 compared to 30,634 on the bog standard QS801 unit, which is a decent enough boost, but still a few thousand juice units behind that wily rival, the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Clearly nothing worth getting too upset about, and less important still for Joe Average, who in all likelihood has no idea what a smartphone benchmark even is – never mind fretting about scores.
The real driving factor here, for both Samsung and LG, who’ve rolled out QS805 phones in recent weeks, appears to be the processor’s compatibility with LTE Cat 6.
Ah well, I suppose, in a sense, that’s one less thing to worry about. Or something. Now let’s all see in the weekend with a nice hot cup of tea. Cheers.
