Below this article we’ve embedded a YouTube video from L BS demonstrating speed testing on both of these handsets. The testing is quite extensive and you’ll see an Ookla Speedtest with upload and download results followed by a variety of apps being opened to see which is quickest each time. The testing also involves browser speeds, page scrolling, and games being loaded, and then some benchmarking.
Benchmark tests involved include AnTuTu, Geekbench 3, and 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited, There’s a note reminding us that overheating can affect benchmark results, and at the end there’s also a bootup test. Throughout the video you’ll see a counter on the left for the LG G4 and one on the right for the Lenovo K3 Note. Each time a handset wins a test its counter goes up, so that at the end there’s a final result for the speed testing.
