Sony’s Xperia Z4 Leaves Upcoming LG G4 in the Dust in Benchmarks

Sony Z4

LG’s got nothing on Sony

The GPU benchmarks of two upcoming flagship handsets from both Sony and LG have surfaced, and it seems that Sony’s upcoming Z4 leaves LG’s next flagship choking in the dust. The benchmark, done through GFXBench’s Manhattan 3.1, test the graphical prowess of devices both big and small. Sony’s Xperia Z4, which is rumored to receive Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor managed to score extremely high marks with its Adreno 430 GPU, coming in just below the Opus E350.

GFX Bench

LG’s upcoming G4 however, is left far behind, as the new device is slated to receive Qualcomm’s hexa-core Snapdragon 808 with a far less powerful Adreno 418 GPU. To put things in perspective, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4, released a few months ago and uses the Adreno 420 GPU scores higher than the G4 – which speaks volumes about LG’s choice to ditch the top tier processor for a lower spec’d one. While GFXBench only measures GPU performance it’s a good indicator of things to come.

  1. Flagship,..un ang ibig sabihin dto….pano mgiging flagship ang G4 kng kulelat sa mga benchmarks…bka ung Lg note ang flagship..

  2. Parehas silang Flagship kaya comparable sila. hinid about resolution or GPU. probably, LG is planning a step up from its G series. maybe LG will release something better.

  3. Well given that G4 is not using the fastest Qualcomm chip, it’s understandable na mahuhuli sya sa benchmark BUT they are not using the same resolution dahil sa move ng sony to use 1080p for Z4(1080p variant). Dapat man lang sana yung Z4-QHD ang ginamit for comparison.

    Why don’t you guys checkout how S5 and M9 are both faster than S6 because of resolution? 🙂
