Here is why you see varying game graphics quality on different flagships (Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6)

As we showed you in our analysis of the Gamebench game graphics display comparison, resolution can't be televised. There are very murky arguments about the advantages of, say, the 1440p display of the Galaxy S6, against the 750p display of the iPhone 6. First off, most games aren't optimised for such high resolutions, meaning that the image is simply upscaled, reducing the overall quality, and second, even if it is, the fairly orthodox nature of mobile game graphics means that the difference just won't be very noticeable for the typical eyesight...

Shocky you did not even know Adreno GPU was based on Ati GPU so instead of trying to bash on me give some info you idiotic moron. as Alex3run said go on google and stufy mobile GPU architectures and stop been an idiot.

Still it doesn't help Adreno to win the competition against Mali and Exynos (others have low GPU configs). According to my own tests Adreno isn't looking good in terms of pixelling/texturing. But yeah - its compute power is a lot higher.

Well you would wrong, as always. Not really sure how that's relevant.

Go to google and study mobile GPU architectures, okay? ;)

That's one of the reasons I'm not a fun of mobiles that go above 1080p, I mean in the end it just steals more power out your CPU as well as the GPU, besides this is not ps4. Mobile games are not meant to run on full HD, so forget 2K who needs that on a phone!

Hmm, Apple's Metal was not mentioned here. I wonder if Samsung created something similar to Metal yet. Anybody knows?
