After receiving the LG Nexus 5, the latest Nexus smartphone was put to the benchmark tests. AnTuTu 4.0, Vellamo, Quadrant and 3DMark are the multiple benchmark tests that will show the real potential of the device. Surprisingly, a few benchmark scores of the LG Nexus 5 are lower than other devices with lower specs.
The first is AnTuTu Benchmark. LG Nexus 5 scores only 16,720 points on AnTuTu 4.0. The score of LG Nexus 5 is even lower than older devices like LG Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy S3, Sony Xperia Z and Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The tester pointed out that the processors in the LG Nexus 5 are running at full throttle during the benchmark test.
The second is Quadrant Standard benchmark test. LG Nexus 5 scores only 5048 points. The fifth generation is only higher than the HTC One X a little bit. The HTC One X is powered by the Tegra 3 processor.
The third is Vellamo Benchmark test. LG Nexus 5 scores only 1185 points on HTML5 while Metal is only 1063 points. The LG Nexus 5 is far behind Samsung Galaxy Nexus, LG Nexus 4 and Samsung Galaxy Grand on the HTML5 test while it is ahead of Samsung Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 600 on the Metal test. The results are weird.
The fourth is 3DMark benchmark test. The LG Nexus 5 has maxed out the scores on ICE STORM SCORE and ICE STORM EXTREME SCORE while the ICE STORM UNLIMITED score is 13407 points. The Nexus device is on par with most of the Snapdragon 800-powered devices in the market.
The fifth is NenaMark2 benchmark test. LG Nexus 5 scores 59.9fps on NenaMark2 which is almost maximum.
Lastly, the BaseMark 2.0 benchmark test. LG Nexus 5 scores 59.85 points. The performance of the LG Nexus 5 is near to the maximum score and on par with other Snapdragon 800-powered devices in the market.
Note: Several benchmark results of the LG Nexus 5 hinted that the Android 4.4 KitKat is still new to the benchmark applications in the market. We may need to retest again in the future to find out the true performance of the LG Nexus 5. In addition, the device was tested in Taiwan.
