The HTC Droid DNA started the 5-inch 1080p screen era in the United States just last week, but it is just the first of many devices with such insanely detailed screens coming up…

Meanwhile in the laptop world, they are still releasing "HD ready" screens of garbage quality for $ 1000

if it will work properly then I welcome advances in technology. by then manufacturers will know how to mitigate battery consumption.

I think the 1080p screens are great. However, I think that my 720p screen from the galaxy note 2 is just fine for now. Its a bump up yes but not so much where I feel I would have to jump at an upgrade. I would look forward more to after that as screen tech might stick at 1080p for at least another year until either something higher spec comes (like it will matter as our eyes cannot tell the difference) or huge boosts in battery and pen tech. That probably will not happen with the next upgrade. I figure I have about 2 maybe 3 years before something like that comes out.

This is the time I've been waiting for. I'm waiting for a FULL HD 1080P ANDROID PHONE probably will wait till 5.0 KEY LIME comes out. While the iphone still doesn't want to use the TERM HD or won't have 1080P on their phones.

The only bad thing is that there are not many apps optimized for this kind of displays. I have a 1080p tablet and some apps look bad.
