will we see a Nokia aluminium phablet with 1080p display this year...we alreay know that there is a Nokia 1520 coming this month...but what about the previously leaked picture on the aluminium shell in mass production?

Nokia would never touch that crap, aluminum is weak and easy to dent/scratch. If they use metal it will be something more reliable like steel or magnesium alloy (magnesium alloy is better than both steel and aluminum, way more durable than plastic)

I guess you've never heard of the Lumia 925.

i guess i just mentioned phablet with 1080p display...Nokia lumia 925 is not fully aluminium my friend..it just has a frame made of aluminium...m talking about the leaked pictures of the big size aluminium shell that were released back in june...i guess u may need to go back and do some homework of cheking the leaked pics on phonearena

I don't need to go back & do anything. My comment wasn't a reply to you, it was to Shatter. I know the 925 has an aluminum frame. He said Nokia would never touch aluminum & I was simply proving him wrong.

Wow, how oblivious one must be to think that 4.4 is still named key lime pie? Has this person been living under a rock recently? :P

You can't blame the person asking because Kitkat 4.4 was announced after the last episode of PA Q&A. This is kind of a problem in this "series", questions shouldn't be asked in the comment section and be answered weeks later. It's a little late.

Still prefer Super AMOLED though. The saturated colors are just... Perfect.

Super AMOLED is the best bro.

No, it is not. At least for today.

User preference. Duh.

Technical thing is not a user preference.

AMOLEDs have over saturated colors, low brightness level and they cannot display white correctly. Isn't that enough to prove that AMOLEDs aren't the best? I'd say the LG G2's screen is much better in terms of color accuracy and brightness.

Yeah, me to. Thanks Ray, its just sad that KLP still not out, i was really looking forward to it.. And another question. Why is my IE 10 not compatible with you site? Its showing this "You are using an old version Internet Explorer which PhoneArena.com no longer supports. Please update to Internet Explorer 8 or better, Chrome or Firefox." yet im having the latest IE available. Ang becoause of that i cannot comment.

Sorry, but why are you using IE10 in the first place?

Will iPad 5 have a higher resolution display and will the latter really be manufactured by SHARP?

The Ipad 5 has a high resolution display. A higher display is nonsense.

34. slavytodorov

Posts: 48; Member since: Jun 23, 2012

I'd rather disagree. In order to be able to compete with other high-end tablets in terms of screen, the iPad 5 should have a ppi of over 300, isn't that right? I'm not saying the current resolution isn't very high but why not be even higher? Think about it. :)

37. garlic456

You are right, but other high end tablets have a lower resolution than iPad (except the Nexus 10 and one or two others). You can see the pixels if you look very closely even with devices with 441 ppi (at least I can do) but in normal usage, you look at the phone like 20 cm away and at the tablets nearly 40 cm, so even with 200 ppi, you can't see the pixels on normal usage. If iPad 5 has -for example- 4k resolution, then there wouldn't be much visual difference, but it would definetly get slower.
