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.

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.
