Nvidia Tegra 4 vs Samsung Exynos 5 Octa vs Snapdragon 800

If you are a mobile enthusiast, yo would be absolutely licking your lips at the prospect of the result of this post. Yes, in the title are three processors which are by far and away the highland flagships of their respected manufacturers. All the three SoCs come from potent players which have made waves in the market. The Snapdragon 800 has been seen in the brand new Galaxy Note III, LG G2 and more recently the Sony Xperia Z1 and is widely considered by many as the best chipset out there.

SoC benchmarks

Tegra IV is obviously an upgrade to Tegra III which to be honest, did not really take off and was widely blamed to be one of the reasons why the HTC One X despite killer looks and build, did not really get its nose ahead of the Galaxy SIII in the hay day.The Exynos 5 Octa is found on some of the newer Samsung devices such as the Note III and the Galaxy S IV but has not really convinced the folks of its prowess, so in theory the Snapdragon 800 should walk the test.

But, to see how the device really perform, here is an interesting video by Mobilegeeks pitting these three SoCs against each other, check out to find out the best.

LG G2 Benchmark Scores

In the past few days, we have heard and read about plenty of drama surrounding how several smartphone manufacturers have tried to configure their smartphones in a way that their devices perform to the optimum best when tested. Anandtech, the popular website was really the first one to point out that Samsung was a culprit and later went on to reveal they were not the only ones.

How this works is that the Android smartphone runs at full throttle when a benchmarking app such as quadrant standard is run. This certainly means most of the benchmark tests are tailored deeming them not really worthy of much use. However, since just about every device is tailored, we feel although these tests are really not a true indicator of performance, but still could be used to see which manufacturer has gone to greatest lengths at optimizing their devices for such tests.

So keeping up with our Benchmarking tests, we have the LG G2 with us to see how the device fairs. It is without a doubt one of the best smartphones on the market and one of the only few devices to be running Snapdragon 800 SoC which should certainly give it a rock solid headstart over the competitors.

The following are the tests we conducted and their scores.

Benchmark Tests: HTC One

If you are a regular Blogtechnika subscriber, you might well be aware that at Blogtechnika we like to throw a lot of devices in hand through a series of Benchmark tests. No, the benchmarks do not give out the true performance quotient of devices, but it does give a fair idea of how the device might well be performing. We recently conducted the benchmark tests on the Nexus 4 and the LG Optimus G Pro. This time around, it the turn to put the favorite Android smart phone on the planet through these tests, yes we are talking about the HTC One. The device has quickly become the standard setting when it comes to Android smart phones and no wonder we are extremely curious as to how the device will perform.

Again, we would like to reiterate that benchmark tests scores can vary and depend upon settings of your device, but they do give a fair idea of where the device stands against a very competitive Android OEM market. With that, let’s dive in and check out the benchmark performances of the HTC One.

Quadrant Standard

So, the overall performance of the HTC One was more than satisfactory. yes, these are some of the best benchmark scores we have seen on a device that is mainstream in the market currently. We will definitely keep comparing the scores as and when newer and better devices come in.

LG Optimus G Pro Performance Benchmarks

Android devices come in all shapes and sizes. The latest trend is obviously having a phablet device that doubles up as a phone and a tablet. the market is littered with loads of them, but there are only a few that are cutting edge. Two of them that really run close to being crowned the best phablet on the planet are the Samsung Note II and the recently announced LG Optimus G Pro.

We have been using the device steadily over the past few days and we recently started a new section on Blogtechnika where we tested the benchmark scores of various devices. The first device to go through the test was the LG Nexus 4 here, and next in the cue is the phablet LG Optimus G Pro. Howe well does the device perform and score in the benchmark tests? Let’s dig in and find out:

Vellamo Test: Higher the score, better it is

Metal+HTML 5 scores compared

CF Bench Scores: Higher the Bar Graph, better the performance


Antutu Bench: Probably the most famous benchmark test for Android devices. Again, higher the score, better it is.

Linpack Scores: Both the Single thread and multi thread tests were performed

Quadrant Benchmark: Simply the most famous benchmark test there is.

Note: The results of the Quadrant benchmark really varied, we even had scores as high as 9000 and as low as 6000 and as a result, the average was around the 7300 mark.


Overall, the performance of the Optimus G Pro was consistent, and although we expected higher scores than we got, but guess the scores do not tell the whole story. It comes down to experience with the device and that has been pretty good. We will be putting up the full review of the G Pro soon, so stay tuned for that.

Featured: LG Nexus 4 Benchmark Scores with PowerSaving

There are a plethora of Android devices in the market currently in the market. We can all compare the device based on the hardware they run, but specs alone do not tell the whole story. This is the reason why benchmarks have become one such way of comparing the devices. This is primarily the reason behind us starting this new feature on Blogtechnika where we will put as many Android devices as we can through various Benchmark tests and publish the scores here.

The first device we will be picking for this section is the Nexus 4. The device we are using is running on Stock ROM and Franco M3 Kernel. Also, keep a note that these benchmarks may be different from device to device. We at the time of benchmarking the device were using the Snapdragon Battery Guru and Greenify. We will soon be doing a test with all these services turned off. The reason being simple, these are the most optimum settings any user uses on their device. So lets dive in and see how the device performs:

RL Benchmark: Lower is better


Vellamo Test: Higher the better

So, it is clear from the results that the Battery saving methods really hamper the performance of the device. We will perform the same tests at full throttle with battery savings turned off and see what the results are. Stay tuned for that.
