LG Optimus L9 Smartphone Review

The evolving Smart Device reviews are now going to have their own page dedicated to benchmarks, instead of including them in performance. This gives us an entire new page to play with, with the graphs and numbers below.


First off we have GLBenchmark 2.5.1, and the 2.1 Egypt Classic Offscreen running in 1080p.




The Optimus L9 gets demolished by the competition with the Xperia Tablet S over doubling its performance, the Nexus 4 over four times the performance, and the Nexus 7 at just over double the L9's performance. This isn't surprising, as we're benchmarking a mid-range handset versus some of the much faster, quad-core-based smart devices.


Next up we have the Fill Rate Offscreen, again at 1080p.




The Optimus L9 does a little better here, but still gets crushed by the competition.


Second to last, we have Quadrant 2.1.1 Pro with the Full Benchmark Total Score.




The Optimus L9 doesn't do too badly here, and we also have a few more devices to look at scores from, too. It's worth noting that the L9 nipped at the heels of the much more expensive Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G tablet.


And finally, some battery tests using GLBenchmark's built-in battery test, running 2.5 Egypt HD 60fps.




Battery life is surprising on the Optimus L9, thanks to its mediocre hardware. It actually beats the Nexus 4 - but the Nexus 4 has the most powerful hardware, at the cost of battery life - obviously.
