Quad HD vs 1080p display comparison: see how the phone with the highest pixel density stacks up
posted by Daniel P. / Apr 14, 2014, 3:44 AM
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.The panels are mounted on the
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.

Neat. Oppo's ColorOS is one of my favorite android skin.

the question is: Can eyes distinguish between these two?

The pale one is QHd (first photo).When it comes to Qhd vs 1080p,1080p display wins.Because the pixels are not the only things that makes better display.You have to give other ingredients proportionately. That's how little piece of *** iphone's display easily beats s3, s4,s5.

The iPhone 5/5S does NOT beat the S5 display. Before posting nonsense and "facts" out of thin air, try using the phone side by side. The S5 is noticeably faster and has a way better display in terms of viewing angles, color accuracy and the deep blacks. -Sent from my T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5

I could tell in some but not all the pictures. Personally 1080p is still usable up to at least 7 inches. Sounds silly because just a few years ago we had a debate between 720p vs. 1080p in sets smaller than 50 inches. But as long as the tech does not increase the price, not become a burden on cpu and battery power it really does not bother me. Back when quadcore cpu's came out people complained that it would harm battery power. But after reading Anandtech's S5 review it is possible to increase cpu power while making it more efficient. Even the S5's display shows great improvement in both display quality and power saving features.

I don't think you'll notice the extra pixels on a 5" I kind of tested it once, I made a few images with white backgrounds and a random black dot and tried to find it (without zooming), took me a few minutes to find. I then tried again with a black background and white dot, took me under a minute to find, it stood out more. But that's with my eyes as close to the screen as possible, under normal use I don't see any pixels. Don't know about 5.5" screens

This means, when you have a microscope at home - go for QuadHD, if not, 1080p is just fine.... I thing if we put next to these 2 a NOTE 3 NEO - same size with 5,5" with just 720p screen - from the distance of 30cm some would not see the difference.

I think 1080p is the limit for mobile phones for now.

Just buy a Tab Pro 8.4 and you'll actually see the true beauty of a QHD screen. Not on phones though

Those can't spot the different eye not sharp enough. They is different there.

And as soon as Samsung or HTC come out with QHD phones it is all of a sudden the best invention ever.. I think the QHD actually is useful since I am actually able to see some pixels here and there on a 5" 1080p display (normal distance from eyes).
