That's going to be Apple marketing phrase: "A never before seen screen resolution..."

That reminds of how Steve Jobs went on and on about the antennae of the iPhone4, saying no one had ever done one that way before and how ground breaking it was. Less than a week later, massive reports of dropped calls.

It was ground breaking and never done before....

I have yet to place 1/2 an inch of finger on a phone and it drops the signal. You can just place it on the area....dont even have to hold it.

It was wild during that time seeing so many ppl trying to dismiss and discredit scientific proof, technical proof. Anandtech and Consumer Reports trying to be dismissed and discredited was especially hilarious.

Dont worry...it will be justified and made to look revolutionary when it launched...

More proof that Apple arent the trend setters anymore. Maybe they will be again one day.

No worries there. I'm not a consumer of Apple products.
Now that Apple has almost caught up to 2013, maybe they can work on a 1080 screen.

& my 18+ month old DROID DNA is rocking a 1080 x 1920 display.
Thanks Apple for catching up to 2012.

I read this article on 9to5 and I could be wrong but I don't remember them saying this was a fact. I think they were just making predictions, not posting it as something they found out.

Congratulations catching up with 2012's Androids! They're gonna use 'Best display in the world' as an ad, still. And, Fanboys will still be boasting out it's gimmick 'retina' display!

In my opinion, apple screen much better than current android flagship. It not because of retina gimmick or apple fanboy here but the screen itself. You will see the different if you compare side by side. The colour of the screen much better on apple device.

I can tell you, you haven't tried S5.

Thank you. I already had Note 3.. Dont want buy S5 because it pricey plus only 16gb/2gb onboard compare to 32gb/3GB RAM/lower price on my note 3. What I can say, Samsung just want your money, they doesnt care about your phone quality but the quantity.

Well these are the reasons why the S5 is more expensive: Better Processor + A Better Tweaked Display + More compact + Waterproofing + Better Touchwiz + Many more...

Of course, if you already like the Note 3 and have it, there is no reason to upgrade it to the S5. At least the S5 isn't as overpriced as the butts of iPhone prices.

I bet that was hard for Apple to swallow since Jobs said the human eye can only see as good as a "retina" display.

So while Apple has just broke past 2011 by going above 720. Maybe they can work on 1080 while everyone is enjoying the new QHD displays. Maybe the iPhone in 2018 will have it?
I'm sure they will milk this new resolution as long as they can though.
