Hi,

Has anyone been able to actually compare the real world performance of the v500 and the v510. For anyone that doesn't know these are the non-Google play and the Google Play editions.

The hardware seems to be the same but one runs Android 4.2.2 and the other Android 4.4.2.

The original v500 seems run the chrome browser a bit laggy and I'm wondering if if the v510 does the same or does running on vanilla Android KitKat 4.4.2 help it.


Thanks

Ash.

Well it was Verge. I'm sure the article was written on an iPad sporting a picture of Steve Jobs wearing a black turtleneck for a background.

Agreed. I can't even read that crap anymore because it seems like every Android device review has an agenda. Their scores are all over the place, make no sense and are arbitrary and worse yet, they don't even add up to an average. They have the absolute worst scoring system of any website I've ever seen. The comment sections are even worse, full of Apple apologists. They have such a double standard, too. I stay far away from that website at all costs.

The review was not so bad. Anyway I saw the site is a fan boy site. I've a I pad mini and for me the gpad it's miles better...

The review is not that bad really.
And as for comparison between the LGE and GPE this is mentioned:
Quote:

The two G Pads are technologically identical ó a Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, and 2GB of RAM ó but the Google Play Edition is faster at every turn. Chrome opens a half-second faster, and renders pages much more quickly. Multitasking menus open quicker, apps resume sooner, even the keyboard pops up a full beat earlier on the Google Play Edition G Pad 8.3. Itís not that the skinned model is slow, far from it: it plays even intensive games like Asphalt 8: Airborne well, and nothing ever felt overly laggy. But stock KitKat clearly comes with a huge speed boost, and switching from one model to the other for days at a time, I always noticed the difference.

My experience with the non GPE version as regards Chrome is that it opens near instantaneously, if the GPE version was half a second quicker it would be opening before you tapped the icon

Best comment I've read in days XDDDDD

I agree. Non GPE version is pretty fast.
