by: Joe HindyAugust 17, 2013

If you’ve been looking for a new way to benchmark your device, then Primate Labs Inc has just launched an app for you.

by: Darcy LaCouveeAugust 7, 2013

And that is no small feat.

Given that the current high score on the AnTuTu Benchmark ratings page sits at just a bit over 20,000 points, the LG G2’s performance is certainly going to be hard to beat.
