The LG Optimus 2X is one of the first Android phones with a dual core Tegra 2 processor so you can expect it to be pretty fast. This video goes through a few Benchmark tests such as Quadrant Standard, Smartbench 2011 and Linpack. Quadrant Standard took a few tries before it would show any results without crashing, but once it worked, we saw quite a good score of 2480. The Smartbench 2011 score came out to respectable, but not terribly impressive 2259. Linpack’s MFLOPS benchmark turned out to be 36.915.
We also took a look at the web browser to see how quickly it could render web pages. The Optimus 2X did pretty good, but in the video you can notice some significant lagging when trying to interact with the site while it’s still loading. The HD7 did not experience such lagging, but did take quite a bit longer to load.
The dual core goodness really shows up if you install some apps that are made to take advantage of the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. We downloaded the Tegra Zone app in order to find a few and then bought one of the games; Samurai II Vengeance. The game performed quite well with 3D graphics and speedy swordplay.
