HTC Butterfly tops benchmark scores

Last week, we finally decided to buy the HTC Butterfly so we can make an early review of the unit on our own. For the past several days, we’ve been using it as a primary phone but what impressed us the most are the scores in our synthetic benchmarks.

We had our first impressions with the HTC Butterfly a couple of weeks ago here and before we publish our full review, we’d like to share with you the benchmark scores first.

These scores reflects more on the performance of the new Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chip. Three of the most common benchmark tools that we use here measures the number-crunching powers of the CPU, the speed of the GPU in pushing pixels to the screen and the over-all performance of the other main components (RAM speed, read/write speed of internal storage, etc)

First off is Nenamark 2. The HTC Butterfly scored 59.5fps which looks like a typical frame rate offered by many other handsets before it.

However, consider that this unit is pushing more than twice the number of pixels per frame. At 1080p, it processes over 2 million pixels per frame compared to your other 720p HD displays which only has about 920k pixels per frame. That means we get an effective performance increase of at about 100%.

Next up are the Quardrant scores and the Antutu Benchmark score.

For Quadrant, the device scored a high of 8,014 (the first one we’ve seen to hit the 8k mark) while Antutu Benchmark score is an unbelievable 20,085 (first one to get above 20k mark).

The last time we saw really high benchmark scores were with the HTC One X+ (Quadrant: 7,195; Antutu: 16,173) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (Quadrant: 6,592; Antutu: 13,540)

Of course, these are just numbers and don’t really reflect actual real-world performance. At least the numbers can somehow give us some sort of a relative comparison with the other flagship phones.

Watch out for our full review of the HTC Butterfly by end of the week.

      ? HTC tops all the android devices regarding design ?
      KAMAKAILAN LNG TO AH…
      LG Electronics (LG) announced that seven of its mobile products received the highly sought after and globally recognised 2013 International Forum (iF) design awards.

      LG’s winning products included the recently launched Optimus G, the Optimus L9 and five other smart mobile products.

      “LG invests heavily in smartphone design in order to create products that are uniquely differentiated from those offered by our competitors,” said Dr Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

      “As far as we’re concerned, strong design is crucial as it not only complements, but also enhances our high-performance hardware. Perfecting the balance between style and full mobile functionality has long been a part of LG’s design heritage and it will continue to be so.”

      LG gave its Optimus G a stunning black uni-body form, which combines simplicity with a sleek finish. The handset also features a luxurious look and feel, with a 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS Plus display and LG’s patented Crystal Reflection finish.

      The Optimus L9 is the embodiment of LG’s premium L-Style design DNA; a blend of sleek form and modern square design. Its 9.1mm body and eye-catching metallic streak provide comfortable grip and a touch of elegance.

      LG’s other iF design award winners include the Optimus LTE 2, the world’s first smartphone with 2GB RAM, and the LG Lucid 4G, a variation of the Optimus LTE for Verizon Wireless in the US.

      Also taking home awards are the Optimus L7, a high-end model from LG’s L-Series lineup, the Optimus Life, a popular LTE smartphone recently launched in Japan, and the LG Smart Dongle for wireless access to LG Smart TVs.

      The 2013 iF Design Awards ceremony will be held on February 22, 2013 at BMW World in Munich, Germany. – TradeArabia News Service

  9. aze says:

    lately ive been seeing die hard fans of LG bashing other products on different blogs, black propaganda against other companies while boasting LG itself and this post is full of those trolls that gives me the impression that LG is not a fair company, i think only Nexus 4 is the real deal that LG released in the past few years, in smartphone bus. ofcourse.

  10. boomerwhang says:

    Maybe this trolls are from LG? Hell, the last Android phone that LG released; that meant anything was the Nexus 4, which also turned out to be one of the biggest debacles in recent phone release history.
    Not enough phones were made, very high prices in countries with out the Google Play Store, which left most prospective buyers,feeling used and gouged.
    What a bunch of idiots… again, idiots.

      KASI HTC UNANG GUMAMIT NG ANDROID OS.

  13. Suplado says:

    Kanina ko lang to nakita sa Glorietta while looking for the Sun Cell hub. Anyway, if I’m an Android user, I’d definitely buy this phone. It’s a beast. Could this be the mother of all android phones to date? If I’m right, around 35-36k yung sabi nung girl from HTC.

  14. Lito says:

    I think this troll is not from LG. Baka may store cya ng LG pero di nabibili kaya naisipan balck propaganda to lure buyers. Tsk. Tsk. I look at LG and IMHO material looks cheap with poor design both in hardware and software. Again IMHO there are myPhone which have lower price and better design than LG. Sorry though I still prefer HTC, Sony or Samsung who uses unibody for strength and feel.

    • Aaron says:

      sir Lito
      baka lang po di nyo pa nakikita lahat ng mga magagandang DESIGN AT FEATURES NG LG SMARTPHONES.
