LG G Flex scores 33336 on AnTuTu, flaunts G2 specs, but 720p display
0. phoneArena 25 Oct 2013, 07:49 posted on
G Flex, the bendy 6-incher coming from LG, has appeared on AnTuTu, reconfirming specs and performance very similar to the LG G2. We are getting a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, clocked at 2.2 GHz, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, as well as 13 MP camera. We already noticed that the G Flex also has buttons on the back, which leaves the main difference between it and the G2 to be the display...

On a 6" phone? Heck no it isn't. Don't be fooled by Steve Job's lies. The true phone 'retina' PPI is 477 at a viewing distance of 12".

So you're saying you can distinguish every pixel on the Nexus 7, Nexus 10, iPad Mini w/ Retina and iPad Air? Wow you must have the best vision in the world.

He's just provided some scientific evidence to prove something and you go on bashing him? Did he even say that the displays on the devices you mentioned look pixelated and need improvement? no.

Thank you. I think I should just never respond to the little smurf anymore. He clearly likes to just rile people up for no reason.
14. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8580; Member since: 14 May 2012)
False. So according to the article, no one can distinguish pixels on a HTC One?

It appears superman just joined phonearena....with pixel vision.
13. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8580; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Those were examples of screens with high res displays that are typically used from about 12 inches away from the human eye. As a person with 20/20 vision, I can't even distinguish individual pixels on the Nexus 7 (2013), HTC One, Galaxy S4, G2 or Nexus 10. I have never heard or met someone say they can. I've read that article when it was published after the iPhone 4 announcement, and as of now, I take it with a grain of salt.

I agree that all the phones you've listed have amazing screens and I can't see pixels on them either. But, you've just listed phones with PPIs close to 447. So, ya. 720P on a 6" display is bad. Which was my original point you ass.
9. NexusPhan (Posts: 497; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
Actually my vision is 20-14, so it's pretty damn good.
Just read the article. According to the eye expert, not some internet blog commenter, the average person will notice pixels on a smart phone up to the point of 447PPI.
After using the S4 and back to the N4, I definitely agree.

So next year when they switch to 1440p someone with perfect vision will not be able to see pixels?

Perfect? Galaxy Round 1080 that's mean excellent?. Oled technology of LG still behind samsung.

I would not mind a phone like this just for trying tho
4. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8580; Member since: 14 May 2012)
I don't understand what the words on the chart say, but 33K is pretty damn impressive. On screen must have been a really high number!

It is really bad alrdy ~
LG never done a great job on optimize software ~
Even it have clockspeed higher than Sony phone , it still have a score that lower than sony phone ~
And both of them have the same spec, that all about LG software department ~

All it takes is an update to make a device shoe it's true potential.

"Not the most resolute out there, bue something had to give in the production of this top to bottom curved display, we guess."
10. Kevinphantom (Posts: 82; Member since: 17 Jun 2013)
I love 720p phones just for the gpu boost
12. vipervoid123 (Posts: 127; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)
Actually Sony Xperia Z1 f have better score compare to this on the same resolution ~
16. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8580; Member since: 14 May 2012)
I rather have the G Flex than the Z1 f due to the shatter proof screen.
20. vipervoid123 (Posts: 127; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)
Does LG said anything special about it screen , if u said shatter proof , that is only because of it design make it that way ~
And it look weird ~
22. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8580; Member since: 14 May 2012)
The flexible screens from LG and Samsung are shatter proof. That alone is a reason I'd buy the phone. No more OtterBox case and praying it doesn't land front side to the ground.
40. o0Exia0o (Posts: 398; Member since: 01 Feb 2013)
Just to clarify, the screen is shatter proof; the digitizer that sits on top of the screen (which is the reason that your touch screen is a touch screen and is usually coated with Gorilla Glass) is not. You would still need a phone case to protect you phone.

No more LG for me. I currently have the G Pro, coming from the G. They are excellent phone's. The issue is with updates. The G Pro is still on 4.1.2., that's truly unacceptable. The G Pro is still on ICS! I know you can root, but really? These were the company flagship's. Stop blaming carrier's, it's not always them.
18. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8580; Member since: 14 May 2012)
You said the G Pro is still on 4.1.2, which is Jellybean, followed by it's stuck on ICS... G Pro was never meant to be a flagship. If you really want updates, you always have the option to root.
19. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2306; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
The G Pro was never meant to be a flagship? The G Pro = LG's version of the Note series. It had top-notch specs upon release. That's flagship enough. It should be past 4.1.2 by now. 4.2.2 at the minimum. Although, you're right about the first part of Mike's post being confusing.
23. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8580; Member since: 14 May 2012)
HTC Butterfly and Butterfly S had top notch specs when they released and were never HTC's flagships. LG just released a device in hopes of competing against the Note series.
29. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2306; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
My point is that whether or not these devices are actually considered "flagships", they deserve updates. It's as simple as that. Unfortunately, the biggest deciding factor these OEMs use when determining whether or not these devices will updated is sales.

36. justsayit (Posts: 213; Member since: 09 May 2013)
really? Optimus G in my country already jelly bean at launch...
as far as i know,
all the flagship(atleast for optimus g ,optimus g pro) will update to 4.2.2 after the lg g2 available global
why i say like this?
when lg optimus g announced,it was on 4.0.4
but after lg optimus g pro announced, just about 2months it get jelly bean
so it means 1new flagship = 1 new updates
37. justsayit (Posts: 213; Member since: 09 May 2013)
when g pro announced ,it was 4.1.2
after about 2 monthes lg optimus g also get 4.1.2
not to mentions the lg optimus 4x hd also get 4.1.2

That's exactly what i was saying when Iphone benchmarks are compared to Android benchmarks, it's utterly irrelevant because of the screen resolution, Androids are rocking 720p and 1080p displays whilst Iphone is Loling on costumers with gibberish resolutions.
32. SonyPS4 (Posts: 255; Member since: 21 May 2013)
720p is already enough for me. I expect Z1S to outperform Z1 too.
33. samara_saeed (Posts: 3; Member since: 25 Aug 2013)
i dont trust on LG products LG G2 gives a good score on benchmark but lags on games like dead triger 2 !
34. dwill458 (Posts: 2; Member since: 25 Oct 2013)
aww it's ok to say the reason an android phone gets high scores in benchmarks is because of the resolution but when it comes to iphone and it worse than 720p screen its the most powerful phone out there gtfo!!!!!!!!!!
38. mike2959 (Posts: 246; Member since: 08 Oct 2011)
Let me clean up what I'm saying.
The G pro was the top shelf phone at the time it was launched. 5.5 display the only screen this size with a 1080P, SD 600 again the 2nd phone with this processor, released with 4.1.2 which at the time was already a 3 updates behind, 4.2.2 was released 5 months before this phone! The G pro HAS NOT received a Android update since it's been released. There was the value pack update for the AT&T version. That's it.
Released 11/12 With 4.0.4, almost 3 updates behind.
I have both phones. They are both excellent. However LG does not support updates. Period.

Why they Call it G Flex when it is just Curved..not actually Flexible.....
41. o0Exia0o (Posts: 398; Member since: 01 Feb 2013)
The screen is, but not the rest of the phone. Considering that the screen is trapped under the digitizer you will never get to flex the "flex" screen. Though I do agree with you. The sould have named it the LG G Curve
