Doctor says Apple exaggerated claims on its "Retina Display"
So according to Doctor Soneira, you would have to hold your iPhone 4 about 1 1/2 feet in front of you before Apple's claim is true. And even then, for the iPhone to deliver an image that appears perfect to the eye, it would have to have a resolution greatly higher than the retina and that is not the case. The Doc says that the iPhone's resolution is "significantly lower" than the retina. He adds, "It's a great display, most likely the best mobile display in production (and I can't wait to test it) but this is another example of spec exaggeration." As we reported yesterday, Samsung claims that the Super AMOLED display on its Galaxy S handset is superior to the display on the iPhone 4. A verdict will have to wait for a side by side demonstration.
