LG Optimus 2X vs T-Mobile G2X – How Does The Software Affect Your Phone’s Performance

by Mihai Matei on May 15, 2011


The LG Optimus 2X and the T-Moblile G2X are basically the same phone. Not only they both pretty much look the same but they are also identical spec-wise. The only major difference between the LG Optimus 2X and the T-Mobile G2X is the software each of them run. While the T-Mobile G2X runs on a stock version of Froyo, the LG Optimus 2X runs a skinned version of Froyo. Not only that but the T-Mobile G2X is running Android 2.2.2, whilst the LG Optimus 2X runs on Android version 2.2.1.

In order to figure how does this software difference between the two smartphones affects their performance, the guys over at AndroidCentral ran the Quadrant benchmark on both of them. Let’s see what happened.

As we’ve established earlier, spec-wise both the LG Optimus 2X and the T-Mobile G2X are similar. Both of them pack a 1 Ghz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM and an ULP GeForce GPU. Interestingly enough though, as we can see in the screenshot and the video above, according to the Quadrant benchmark the LG Optimus 2X is performing better than the T-Mobile G2X.

We know that it isn’t that much of a difference between the results and that you can’t actually rely on this kind of benchmarks because in reality a smartphone can perform a bit different than it does in a benchmark. However, benchmarks do provide an “overview” of a device and even though benchmarks are not in reality the perfect measurement unit for a phone’s performance, in this case with the T-Mobile G2X and the LG Optimus 2X we are in essence talking about the same hardware, still the LG Optimus 2X performs a bit better ( not enough to make a difference in the real world though ).

Thanks Androidcentral for the  on the  T-Mobile G2X vs LG Optimus 2X test.
