LG Optimus 2X whips iPhone 4 in browser speed tests

In a test that should really surprise nobody, the dual-core Tegra 2 powered LG Optimus 2X got caught on video demolishing an iPhone 4 in browser speed tests over WiFi. What is most impressive is that the 2X apparently had Flash 10.1 fully enabled at the time, so those who visit Flash-enabled websites on a regular basis should be especially excited for the phone. It seems LG has improved the software since we last saw the phone showing off back in late November. Look for much more coverage of the device come CES and check out the video past the break. [PhoneArena]

  • It also very handily smacked down the Galaxy S in the same test.
  • Wait... seriously... talking about the vid, but not linking or embedding it... :( sad face.
  • Sorry about that, it is embedded now.
  • Um don't all Android phones beat the Iphone 4 in browsing...
  • LOL ya, now where is my Gingerbread for my nexus one to prove this once again!? :)
  • The LG Star had the page pre-loaded, you can see when he tried the second time it came last.
  • Nope. If it had been pre-loaded, the thumb would have shown in the bookmarks menu. Just a nice demo of next gen hardware, with Adobe Flash running, beating what many consider the best current gen hardware without Flash running.
  • The iPhone may have loaded the text first, but the 2X got the entire page + pictures loaded way faster.
  • dual core phone beats single core phone. Whoopie
  • Nope single core to single core... Unless it is running Honeycomb.. Android Gingerbread and lower DON'T/CAN'T use the second core. But to be fair the iPhone is running a Cortex A8 vs the LG's A9.
  • AAWWWWW the little iphone is so cute. It should be offered in pink. And I didn't know Steve actually let his users have a single button.
  • Take that isheep!
  • Very impressive! Does anybody know where to get or what exactly is the live wallpaper running on the LG? Looks like fireworks, but very fluid movement and a nice looking wallpaper at that
  • I think its a 2011 countdown live wallpaper. Not sure but looks just like what I got from the market.
  • So, shoving notebook-like power into a phone defeats a single-core phone on 1 web page? That's so impressive. How is it on battery life?
  • Um pretty sure it is impressive, cuz it whooped the single core Yphone with one core tied behind its back! It doesent run 3.0 so therefore doesn't make use of two processors.
  • Nice phone
    Hopefully they do not, like Samsung, promise updates they can not deliver.
  • It is a nice phone, they HAVE to abandon that ripoff touchwiz UI. Why in the world would you wanna ripoff a Ui that ripsoff the iphone UI and just plain sucks as bad as touchwiz? Just liek Touchwiz, looks like the kids colored it with crayons .. cheeeeeeeeeeesy
  • Try to open a real large web page and pinch zoom.
    Wish Android could have hardware acceleration UI like iOS (or Opera could fix their bugs and finally release lol).
  • seems to me the nvidia power tegra doesn't need any hardware acceleration, it smoke the nice tryphone just opening the browser, and still finished first while loading flash Btw we've enjoyed pinch to zoom for a while now
  • The 2x? Lmfao I think I might've just seen this advertised in a KPOP video...(Knock Out by TOP and GD)
