The LG Gpad F2 is LG's next generation tablet following up to last year's version. Last year's version was only a 7" screen this year is sporting a 8" HD WXGA LCD Display (1280 x 800). Comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM expandable to 2TB with MicroSD. Runs Android 7.1.1 and has a 1.5 Ghz Octacore MT6750 Processor from MediaTek. Sprint current cost as of this article is $149.99 or 0 down and $6.25 for 24 payments
This is considered a mid tier device based on its specs. The processor is the key to this level of consideration. The Octacore is made up of 2 separate quad-cores each with 4 Cortex-A53 core processors. 4 high-performance cores clocked at up to 1.5 GHz plus 4 low-power cores clocked at up to 1 GHz. Most of the time, the lower-powered set of cores will be employed. When advanced tasks are needed, however, the faster set of four cores will kick in. This design was built for energy efficiency and not necessarily for high performance.
As with all my phones I run a series of benchmark tests to determine the phone's ability to handle its processor and memory available. I like to know where my phone stands in comparison to other devices. I have tested the device using 4 different performance management software each yielded some great results. When I run my tests I do this first before setting up any other application or service. I have minimal services running in the foreground or background so as to not skew my results.
This performance test again measures the GPU's ability and the CPU processing power. Geekbench 4 scores are calibrated against a baseline score of 4000 (which is the score of an Intel Core i7-6600U). Higher scores are better, with double the score indicating double the performance. The LG Gpad handled itself quite well with a single-core score of 598 and Multi-core of 2218. The processor is showing signs to be able to Midlevel usage with some graphic intense games. In comparison closest match would be based on the Galaxy S5. Processed a CPU benchmark test yielded a result of 1609. The Galaxy S6 only handled a score of 1963.
PCMARK for Android
Utilizing the work 2.0 performance test the application ran its myriad of tests checking processing, picture manipulating, and editing ability of documents, navigating interweb and data manipulation. Along with this test I evaluated the Computer Vision option which aims to focus on the devices performance with image recognition tasks. Finally, the Storage test which checks for the devices ability to handle fast smooth stutter-free performance when accessing storage content. Work 2.0 performance yielded a score of 3125, Computer vision came in at 1569, and the Storage component was 3680. All these scores are in line with mid rang devices. The LG G6 had a score of 5303, 2973, and 4194 in comparison results.
With 3DMark I was unable to run the intensive Sling Shot Extreme which utilizes the OpenGL ES 3.1. Graphic tests are based on a 2560 x 1440 screen resolution. I had to resort to the standard Ice Storm evaluation test. This test is based on the OpenGL ES 2.0 benchmark with displays of 1280 x 720 which the LG Gpad has as a screen resolution. This test is the lightest of the graphic intensive tests. The program runs 2 types of graphic tests measuring both the GPU performance and lots of vertices. It then measures the GPU performance along with pixel processing. Finally it test the overall CPU with its standard physics tests. The LG Gpad score again was in line with other mid-range devices. It yielded an impressive score of 8484 as it was able to produce graphics rendering at 30 frames a second.
Antutu Benchmark & 3D Rating
This Benchmark application measures multiple layers of evaluation from memory performance, CPU integer Performance, and 2D 3D graphics Performance. The overall results of this test yielded a score of 35918. This score came back with the device handling a 3D game performance at mid-level mode. CPU processor also confirmed to support mid tier level use for the average user.
The LG Gpad Is great device for a Mid-level user not wanting to have high gaming needs but a tablet for regular daily use. With the MT6750 Processor from MediaTek users can will be very pleased with the tablets abilities for navigate web and application use.
Enjoy and remember never use your phone or tablet while driving, be safe and healthy.
