Verizon First Overall, AT&T Last in This Year’s Consumer Reports Survey

You know what they say: The more things change, the more they stay the same. Such is the case regarding AT&T and this year’s Consumer Reports survey based on mobile carriers. Like last year, AT&T finished dead last in Consumer Reports’ mobile carrier satisfaction survey which focuses on data service quality, staff knowledge, and issue resolution. Similarly, like last year, Verizon finished atop the list. Ironically, even though AT&T finished dead last in overall scoring, they finished first with its LTE network satisfaction. The poll itself polled 63,253 subscribers and the the results will be published in the January 2013 issue which should hit stores within the next week or so.

LG Optimus One gets benchmarked [video]

Image Courtesy of Android Central

We’ve been hearing a lot about the Optimus line in the world of Android news recently, but there’s one question that everyone wants answered: what about the performance? Well, wonder no more, as there is now video of the LG Optimus One getting benchmarked via Quadrant and Linpack, two of the Android benchmarking standards available through the Android Market.

Keep in mind, these aren’t the “official” benchmark results (as if there ever are any), so your LG Optimus One may perform differently, especially if you are rooted, overclocked, or any of that other fancy geek stuff.

From what we can tell the graphics are relatively good, with slower read / write speeds than some other devices. I can tell you personally that the result gotten in the video is about what I would get on my old HTC Hero that was rooted, running CM6 and overclocked.

Enough babbling, be sure to hit up the video post-break to see for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!
