To date, I have owned every model of the Google Nexus phones, albeit briefly in every case. I just received my Nexus 4 yesterday and decided to run it through the Quadrant Standard benchmarks.
My Galaxy Nexus had a previous total score of 2120.
The Nexus 4 came in with the following results.
- CPU – 10597
- Mem – 6635
- I/O – 4407
- 2D – 327
- 3D – 2149
Total – 4823
Interestingly, the CPU was not the only major improvement between the devices. The memory score shot up from 1544 on the Galaxy Nexus to 6635 on the Nexus 4. Also of note, the 3D score remains nearly unchanged.
