LG Unveils High-End Android Phone

Is it a plane? Is it a rocket? No, its just the super-fast latest Android-powered LG phone straight from South Korea – the LGLU3000.

While there is not much known about this handset on this side of the world so far, one thing seems very apparent. It is fast, really fast. The good guys in the East have given us a nice display of just how fast the phone is with a video comparison against an iPhone4 and a Samsung Galaxy S. The video (see below) sees a YouTube app being launched simultaneously on the three devices and without a doubt the fastest is the LU3000. The next task given the phones is to play a video and again the LU3000 is far and away the fastest of the three devices.

What is known about the device is that it will feature a 3.8in WVGA IPS screen, runs on Android 2.2, has a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, has an HDMI out with support of 1080p video and powered by an OMAP 3630 1GHz.

Whether or when we will see this speed demon over here in the UK is unkown but if it does appear it will probably be under the moniker of Optimus. While judging a phone based on a video on YouTube is not the most scientific of review methods, its all we’ve got so far and we have to say we like the look of the LU3000 so fingers crossed it will appear here soon.

Just ran this "test" on my Desire and it's slightly faster than the LG...

Looks pretty quick but isn't the iphone's default youtube app doing some sort of conversion on the vids before they play? Maybe the others are as well, but the iphone at least is a bit quicker playing direct from the youtube mobile website.

I would like to see the amount of running apps on all devices (save the iPhone), plus the samsung was using a live wallpaper and the GPS was active (see the status bar). The LG's bar is clear save for the wifi indicator.

Seem like a flawed test... at best. Still seems to have some chops, and a metal back plate!!!!!!

Lol @ iPhone's epic fail

I don't get it. This appears to be showing differing download speeds more than anything else.

If i was feeling cynical, I would say that the LG was connected to wifi and the others were on 3G. The iphone particularly seems to to AGES to start youtube

@Ed - Yip suppose it does, but then if the iPhone and the SGS are on the same table and they are using presumably the same connection (be it 3G or wifi) doesn't that say something?

Not that it matters however as the test is flawed to start with.

is this the first of the nvidia tegra2 devices?

If this can play 1080p mkv files with 5.1 audio over the HDMI connection, it may be the phone to upgrade to from the Desire...
