#15 "The iPhone's lower screen resolution makes games play faster."
So this one is ... unexpected. When I posted that the Samsung S4 had 35.06% more pixels than the iPhone 5 and that it was true 1080 HD where the iPhone had a non-standard size, I got some strange replies.
The most unexpected one, though, has to be the assertion that because the iPhone has to push less pixels for gaming, it is a faster gaming device. Now, to some degree, it is true that the less pixels you push, the faster your game. But who among us is going to want to play a 640x480 video game on our PCs anymore? No, we want both speed and image quality.
I'm going to say this, though, so you know I'm fair. The screens on both the iPhone and Samsung S4 are spectacular. Their processors are lightning fast. I have no speed complaints with either one. You can have a lot of gaming fun on either device.
Should Apple users feel better about themselves because of this? No, but not because the device isn't good. The iPhone plays great games. It's just a dumb argument given everything else you need to consider.
