The rumored LG Star equipped with a promising dual-core CPU has just been reviewed by Engadget altough it hasn’t been made official yet. Engadget got their hands on the LG Star; and the verdict is a pretty positive heck yes, saying “Basically, Tegra 2 will give anything your current phone’s running an inferiority complex.” Most of the specs have been revealed at this point, so Vlad Savov, Associate Editor of Engadget, spent most of his time running benchmarks to see how the Tegra 2 processor performed.
A more real-world test from Engadget has also shown it to play embedded Flash video smoothly and handle both the GPU-accelerated Android interface and the native YouTube app’s high quality mode properly. According to Engadget, the LG Star feels like the HTC Droid Incredible when held in hand – it’s bigger, though, since it has a 4 inch WVGA display with the resolution of 800-by-480-pixel resolution. By the way, while the blacks aren’t AMOLED deep its viewing angles seem pretty good. LG may also upgrade the phone to run Android 2.3 and could take extra time to polish the OS.
