He's repeating the PR, usually Apple says that kind of crap even when they're merely equal like now.
Yes, because it had 20% less pixels to render.
If you're playing a smartphone game, are you going to pull out the iPhone5 screen and put it in the LG? Or are you going to put the LGs screen on the iPhone 5? Who cares if it has less pixels than the iPhone 5, the GPU side of the hardware is slower but with a phone its an all in one package, the screen resolution makes up for that. Offscreen results at the same resolution matter less than native results.

We are, but we sohuld be comparing the 1080p results where the LG owns.
Why is the iPhone 5 bad? Give me real reasons, not "IT PERFORMS SLIGHTLY SLOWER THAN PHONE X" because I can guarantee you will never notice the difference between the two outside of benchmarks unless you decide to keep the same phone for far longer than the average contract would run for.
You two are clutching at straws with the whole 20% less pixels thing, sure, the A6's GPU is slower...Except as a package (ie. The only way you'll ever get it, or the Krait), it's faster unless you happen to enjoy playing your smartphone games on a HDTV, quite frankly it's humiliating as an Android owner to see people argue crap like that. At this point you're arguing performance differences that just don't show up in the real world for 4+ years (By which time most people will be on the iPhone 6S or Galaxy S VII or HTC Five XL or something) and using semantics that don't apply to the real world and never will to "prove" your points, yes, the iPhone 5 has 20% less pixels...Link me to an iPhone 5 with the same amount of pixels as the LG as a retail and still mobile product, then you can compare results at the same resolution on the native screen fairly, either that or run all the games on that LG at a 20% lower resolution.
