What you may be setting it up as is a ‘other’ mail account that is for general POP3/IMAP. You shouldn’t encounter that screen if you’ve chosen Gmail as your account type. You should just delete that account and create a new one on the iPhone as follows:

The most straightforward way to do this is go to Settings > Mail > Add Account… and right away you’ll see large buttons for mail providers, including the one for Gmail. Tapping Gmail will just require your name, address, and password.
