Quad HD vs 1080p display comparison: see how the phone with the highest pixel density stacks up
Pixel density is not everything on mobile displays, as there is color representation, black levels, and viewing angles to take into account, but it definitely serves as bragging rights. Thus you might be interested in seeing close-up shots of a Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels), and a "regular" 1080p mobile display.
The panels are mounted on the Oppo Find 7 and Find 7a, so it is as close a comparison between the two as it can get. Oppo revealed two versions of its flagship not long go - one with 3 GB of RAM, 3000 mAh battery, and the said 5.5" Quad HD screen, while the Find 7a is with 2 GB of RAM, 2800 mAh juicer, and a 5.5" 1080p screen. The Find 7 is the phone with the highest pixel density announced so far, at 538ppi, and is expected to arrive in May for a price that is still a mystery. Its Find 7a version is currently on preorder for $499 (EUR 399), but that price includes an Easy Style cover, an extra Oppo battery, and a 32GB SanDisk microSD card, so it's a pretty good deal.
We've already seen an overview of the two displays, but this one goes into more granular details, literally. Keep in mind that the Find 7 in the pictures below is a non-final unit, so the screen might not be calibrated the same way it will hit retail out of the factory. Still, if you disregard the color representation differences for now, that 538ppi pixel density looks like a sight to behold, even when compared with a 1080p display.
