    So, I just read Anandtech's review of the new Moto G. What interested me the most was GPU performance graphs.

    Much fuss has been made about the Snapdragon 615 and its GPU performance. Many have written off buying the Moto X Play for this very reason.

    However, these graphs from Anandtech reveal that in every 3D benchmark performed on-screen the Huawei P8 Lite (SD 615, Adreno 405, 1080p) slightly outperforms the LG G4 (SD 808, Adreno 418, 1440p). It even rivals the Nexus 6 (SD 805, Adreno 420, 1440p) in some cases! It appears that the lower display resolution makes up for the less powerful GPU. Therefore, there isn't really any need to worry about GPU performance. It won't beat phones with 1080p displays that have more powerful GPUs but can provide a gaming experience on par with current flagships such as LG G4, Nexus 6 and one has to assume the Moto X Style too!

    Very good observation. Although it is a bit disappointing that both the 615 / 1080p and 808 / 1440p combos are outperformed by last year's and 2013's popular 801 / 1080p combo. Ever since the Nexus 5 (2013), performance on Android has basically hit a wall because any performance gains have been negated by QHD displays.

    I would really like to see Anandtech compare the displays of the Play and Style. QHD resolution doesn't matter much to me, but it would be interesting to know if one display is brighter or has better contrast and viewing angles than the other display. If the Play had a brighter display and / or better contrast, it could actually swing me in that direction.
