The iPhone 5S display may sport two times the pixel count of the iPhone 5, come with thinner bezel

0. phoneArena 28 May 2013, 03:50 posted on

If Apple managed to score enough yield with Sharp's IGZO displays, which allow record pixel densities in a thin and light package which has a very low power consumption, there might be some merit to this rumor, and the source says it will enter production next month for a release in September, which jibes with the launch rumors we've heard so far...

A lot of the initial comments on this article were, from both Apple and Android fans. Double the pixels?? That's like 652 ppi!! Um, no, but it is a big improvement. And highest PPI does not mean best phone, either.

Don't all the major manufacturers use it as a selling point? I believe they all touted FHD screens as a selling point along with the pixel density. Apple isnt doing anything the others dont do. I know several samsung fanboys that bragged about the S4's FHD screen and higher ppi over Apple so its no different the other way around.

Trolling isn't going to change the bias around here.

Eh, the S4 Mini is in the same category as the Razr M - compact and speedy, but not up to iPhone build or screen quality. Still a qHD Pentile screen. It'll be a better buy than the iPhone, but that doesn't take much.

Now if HTC releases the rumored 720p M4 with a metal body, that'll be solid competition.

Yes, by my definition popping by to dash off 2-3 words that add nothing to the discussion is trolling.

So in your theory, every phone should be 5 inches at least? Not everyone likes the same thing, and have different preferences, please understand that, even if you do hate Apple, no one is saying you have to buy their products, which is why we have CHOICE. Also i dont get how it is overpriced, when other phones are comparable in price. Under-performing? My iPhone 5 runs as smoothly as ever, never a lag in it, since the software is optimized very well. Usable only on wifi? Dont get what you mean by that, but im rarely ever connected to wifi and it works fine. Please try trolling a lil less and stating facts instead of blind hating on a product. If you dont like it, dont buy it. Also please be mature and realize that ppl may have a different preference over your own, and there is nothing wrong with that, everyone is free to spend their money on what they like best, and having all the choices we have is good for consumers, as not everyone may want the same thing.

Doubling the resolution doesn't mean doubling the ppi.

Galaxy s3 4.7" is 720*1280 = 921600 = 306 ppi
Galaxy s4 5" is 1080*1920 = 2073600 = 441 ppi and not the double of s3.

Like to see how the iPhone with an excellent display in a tiny screen vs the best 'period' HTC one in a massive screen (compared directly to iphone) I mean what's the point of having that much ppi in a god damn small screen.
