GPU Performance

GPU performance of both the V60 and Velvet are also expected to be quite interesting, given the stark differences in the two SoCs. We don’t know too many details of the Adreno 620 and exactly how much less processing elements we have compared to the Adreno 650, but if the power draw of the phones during 3D workloads are any indication of the performance difference, the S765 should be less than half as performant compared to the S865.

Indeed, in all our benchmarks, we see the LG Vevlet with the Snapdragon 765 roughly fare off about 2.5x slower than the Snapdragon 865. That’s a not too great result, and actually puts the new premium chipset in line with the peak performance of a Snapdragon 835 from a few years ago.

The good news here is the power draw of the phone – at around 1.7-1.8W active system load, the chipset is really only using a fraction of the power compared to the flagship SoCs, even the efficient Snapdragon 865. This means that thermal throttling is pretty much impossible for the chipset and the LG Velvet, making its sustained performance figures identical to its peak figures. In this regard, the chip and phone perform more similar to a Snapdragon 845 device, whilst only ever getting lukewarm at worst.

The LG V60’s more performant SoC falls in line with our latest batch of Snapdragon 865 phones. We’re seeing excellent performance and thermal behaviour, with the phone also nearly not throttling at all after prolonged periods – only reaching ~38°C peak skin temperatures.

    Why does it matter? Does anyone really regularly do anything with the USB port other than charge the device? Android doesn't have a local back up to a computer like iPhone/iTunes and even on that side it seems like most things happen automatically over wireless/wifi connection anyway. I doubt my wife could name the last time she hooker her android phone up to her computer. With her current phone I'm not even sure if she ever has hooked it up to a computer. For my iPhone I don't think I've ever hooked my current one up to my computer. Last time I upgraded I just used the wizard and it copied over what it needed to for the profile and then automatically reinstalled all the apps. Reply

    "Enthusiasts" will hate me, but the headphone jack should be kept, and the USB-C port should be completely eliminated. You can charge with any port. Reply

    USB-C is like an incremental upgrade to USB micro.

    if I'm actually designing something for scratch that would be perfect for phones, I'd have some kind of waterproof magnetic connector that doesn't have a million pins and giant connectors.

    Magnetic would be an interesting addition, but USB also serves as the manner to bootstrap the device once its built and load the OS. So your magnetic connector would also need to do data. Reply

    Yes magnetics do data, the majority do. Reply

    LOLWAT. How is that any better? The big issue with removing the headphone jack is that there is only 1 port, and you cant charge and listen to audio at the same time. Going to just a headphone jack wouldnt make it any better, and no you cannot just charge with "any port", the headphone jack was not designed to charge a phone, let alone charge while also streaming audio.

    What would be useful in a mobile phone review is additionally comparing to an older phone of a similar price (at the time) that someone would be upgrading from, hence their interest in looking at a review of a phone. How much faster is the device - is it even worth upgrading if the phone is otherwise okay? Reply

    Sounds good except you'd need to compare multiple phones from multiple years, there's no telling if one upgrades annually, biennially, triennially, or...it goes on and on. With Anandtech's interface it's not realistic, but with Notebookcheck's at least you can manually add devices to a comparison list, though that would be once every section, e.g. if you added a device in the CPU section you'd need to add it again for a GPU or battery life comparison. Also older devices may not have been tested by the exact same testing methods, e.g. GB4 is obviously not comparable with GB5, crucially, battery tests are also updated. Reply
