Google Nexus 5 Aces BaseMark X Gaming BenchmarkBy cheatmaster 12:41 Sun, 18 Jul 2021 Comments
If all the rumors and teasers are to be trusted, Google will be announcing the LG-made Nexus 5 this Friday. The flagship has leaked numerous times revealing all there is to know about its design, specs and even pricing.
We've already seen official pictures of the Nexus 5 and we know it will come with a 4.95" 1080p IPS display and Snapdragon 800 chipset. What we didn't know is how the Nexus 5 will be performing on benchmarks with its recent Android 4.4 KitKat, previously rumored as Key Lime Pie.
Well, it seems nobody is trying to haged the gadacquire under wraps anymore. Someone subjected the Nexus 5 to the BaseMark X test and the results came out very promising.
BaseMark X is a cross-platform benchmark, which aims to test how fine a device is for gaming. As it turns out the LG Nexus 5 scores 8% higher than its LG G2 sibling running on pretty much the same internals but with Android 4.2.2 in charge of operations. The Nexus 5 is also twice as quick as its Nexus 4 predecessor, but that is to be expected.
In fact, the Nexus 5 ranked as the second best gaming device in Rightware's database, only beaten by the iPhone 5s (which only has about a third of its resolution).
Anyway, it seems the recent Android version and Google's own optimizations matter and the Nexus 5 may have an edge over its competitors unit they acquire their own Android 4.4 updates.
