T-Mobile LG Optimus T breaks cover, gets benchmarked

We still don't have a firm sale date for the LG Optimus T (see our hands on here), but it's showing up in some T-Mobile locations, and even getting benchmarked.  It's clearly no speed demon, but our tipster says "Overall real-world system performance isn't too bad, though it obviously lacks horsepower."  We also are told the soft-touch coating feels pretty nice in the hand, and it's not full of nasty surprises in the app drawer.  It's clear that this one has entry level written all over it, but it does have some perks we can't overlook --  it ship with Froyo on board (nice work there LG), and my wife reminds me that it comes in purple.  Thanks to you-know-who!

  • isnt it funny how no matter what new phone comes out and gets the benchmark test, the old played out, many phones dominate it,a thing of the past nexus one 2.2 always seems to be at the top of the benchmark screen shots,,lol. idk. is it played out and dominated or doesnt that really mean squat, idk, lol. snapdragon with weaker gpu, idk.
  • My question has always been, why does it not show the evo on quadrant, both clocked and not.
  • those benchmark scores are generic. I cant remember the last time they said anything different. It just gives u an idea on where it stands. There are faster phones than the Nexus, its just a "standard" i guess. The g2 is faster out of the box, the galaxyS is way faster with the lagfix, ect ect ect. Quite a few phones are faster than the nexus on 2.2 now. They really need to update that :)
  • Jerry, So your getting the purple one? :DDD
  • Only cause it doesn't come in pink :p
