LG Star leaked, benched

Written by


Tegra 2 outpaces ARM siblings
LG’s upcoming Star smartphone has leaked onto the interweb and some early benchmarks have already appeared on Android Forums.

It appears that the handset easily beats all currently available phones by a significant margin. It is 30 to 40 percent faster than the Nexus One, Motorola Droid X or HTC Evo. It’s about twice as fast as Samsung’s best selling Galaxy S.

Mind you, the tests were done on Android 2.2, but there is a strong chance that the Star will end up with Gingerbread and the production model might even have better performance. Aside from the Tegra platform, the Star is not exactly a spectacular piece of kit, but it does have some clever features, such as HDMI output. This will surely come in handy with the extra graphics muscle.

So new ARM cores are compared to older ones and 2.2 is compared to 2.1.
That being said, Tegra 2 does quite poorly, with all of the hype I expected more, but hey, they're other manufacturers out there.

considering tegra 2 is one of the most energy efficient ARM SoCs out there that joke was just pathetic

ironically though it has one of the weakest graphics cores for this generation

Well, nvidia DID paper launch it like... last year? IIRC, the Galaxy S was released this year with a newer processor (albeit cortex A8), but it's still a marked improvement... (wait, is there a difference in fab processes between the two?)

It's unfortunate that we can't have a direct comparison using the same android iteration though, since there are so many android versions =(

xda, they make stock for all the android phones out there...
what i really want to see on android right now, is hardware acceleration for the UI and some better os optimization for each specific chipset

I want a phone with a break out cable to VGA and 2 USB ports (for keyboard and mouse). I would buy one in a nano second. No more need for a laptop/netbook etc. Just put it all in one device already 8) Would be very handy in a data centre and.. who knows, playing media too.
