LG G Flex scores 33336 on AnTuTu, flaunts G2 specs, but 720p display

LG G Flex scores 33336 on AnTuTu, flaunts G2 specs, but 720p display
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. 

The 6” flexible display flaunts 720x1280 pixels of HD resolution, pegging the pixel density at 244 pixels per inch. Not the most resolute out there, bue something had to give in the production of this top to bottom curved display, we guess. 

The LG G Flex release date is rumored for next month, and LG already commented it has flexible OLED panels production in full motion, and we'd wager to bet these are set aside for the company's first phone with plastic display substrate.

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". http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/06/iphone-4-retina/

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.

False. So according to the article, no one can distinguish pixels on a HTC One?

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.

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?

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 ~

Actually Sony Xperia Z1 f have better score compare to this on the same resolution ~

16. PapaSmurf

Posts: 10457; Member since: May 14, 2012

I rather have the G Flex than the Z1 f due to the shatter proof screen.

why ? 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 ~

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 unregistered

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.
