The LG G Flex overtakes the mighty LG G2 on GFXBench, thanks to its lower resolution screen

LG's 6-inches of flexible G Flex goodness will be on its way around the globe sooner rather than later, and if the bizarre-sounding self-healing back cover, or its curved battery and screen haven't gotten you excited just yet, then perhaps good ol' benchmarks will. Luckily for those of you who still attach way too much weight to synthetic tests, the G Flex should rank as nothing less than a treat, seeing as it manages to claw its way to the top of the food chain.

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.
