The LG G Flex overtakes the mighty LG G2 on GFXBench, thanks to its lower resolution screen
You may wonder how that's possible, and that's somewhat understandable. Despite having the same internals powering the G Flex and the G2, however, the former has to push considerably less pixels than its 1080p compatriot (or most any other flagship currently on the market), giving it an edge in onscreen tests. As you can see below, off-screen performance has taken a slight hit, though that shouldn't bother you at all, seeing as you'll be needing that screen. What should bother you, however, is how well a 720x1280 resolution looks on a 6-inch display.
Regardless of the weaker points of LG's novel phone, it's kind of interesting to note that at this point in time, it would appear that it has taken the crown from under the nose of none other than local rival Samsung. While Sammy's Galaxy Round beat the G Flex to market, the wait for LG's truly flexible 6-incher may have well been worth it.

So you are acknowledging that lower screen resolution accounts for better GPU performance....
But when the iPhone benchmarks, never is that mentioned. Its always the "power" of the A7 chip. Never the low resolution eh?

What are you talking about? Its common knowledge that a lower resolution screen is less taxing on the GPU. But it still isn't intelligent to knock the A7 because it is indeed powerful. Not only does resolution have something involved in performance but the RAM foot print also has much to do with the GPU performance. Not always "more RAM is better" because on paper it is. More "optimized RAM is better" and comparing Android to IOS (Not the latest build of Android), You'll see that IOS has a much smaller footprint than Android.

Yah. PA or iPhoneArena totally never mention about iPhone low resolution in their iPhone Benchmark Topics, and most iPhone User always say that their iPhone can beat any Android out there and what if Apple iPhone 5s A7 have a resolution of 1080p? can it make the same benchmark scores that 640 x 1136 pixels have which is totally far far away from 1080p. But those 1080p SmartPhones can score near Apple iPhone 5s and what if a LG Optimus G2 or Sony Xperia Z1 have the same screen & same resolution? it would probably blow out iP5S benchmark scores.

Don't forget the iphone screen is even worse than this, its 2013 and its not even 720p which is pathetic.

how do you calculate the resolution for iphone 720p and 1080p are only in the papers dude.apples retina display is far better than 440pi display screens

It actually is better than my s3! I can see pixels in my s3 if i look closely! :/

Are you sure about that? G2's screen > iPhone 5S' screen.
