I for one don’t want that big of a sceeen thats one of the reason i haven’t gone with samsumg. I love my iphone and always will keep using apple product. Also IOS is way better then the OS system runs way smoother. i dont really care about some of the features on the galaxy has long has my phone runs smoothly and has great game and few specs that i want than i am happy with it.. i think the screen at 4inch is good but if they do go big no bigger then 126.96.36.199 inch would be good
The iphone 5 and 5s screen are HD. For sure, for sure. The PPI, or pixel density, is way higher then high definition standards at 326.
In the beginning, several resolutions were published as “HD”, but that’s for big TV displays. Even at super high resolutions, big TVs have a much lower pixel density than iPhone 5. A 1080P TV will be far less HD then iPhone5.
There are very few phones with higher pixel densities than iPhone. The HTC One does have a higher density. The Samsung really doesn’t, because its a Pentile screen, which means its missing 1/3 of the subpixels, which reduces its effective resolution. When then divided by the massive screen size, the resolution is worse, or lower res, than iPhone 5.
Most of these recomendations are to make IPhone be just like Samsong Galexy or some of the other existing phones. IPhone needs to be leading with new ideas and new technology and not following or catching up.
Next generation Iphone needs to have the smae Wow factor and the same kick in the pants technology as we all felt when the very first Iphone was introduced. It should make you want to stand in line for hours just to get it and not be able to put it down.
What is the point of increasing the resolution on a device that already has pixels smaller than the human eye can discern? Doing so will not make ANY difference in the perceived display quality and will only serve to use up processor bandwidth for no reason. Who writes this stuff? Some amount of technical knowledge is required to write about technical issues, not just a Journalism degree. Sheesh.
When is the new MacBook Pro and new Imac 2014 coming out? Do you have a release date?
Will apple be making ITV meaning televisions?
Which is better the Imac 27″ or the MacBook Pro 15″ with retina display?
Please can you advise?
1. NOT a bigger screen. I want it to remain a one-handed device. I hate these phablets, they are a PITA to carry around and use. I want to be able to hold my coffee and type. Or hold onto the straps on the subway and still use my phone. If I wanted a giant device I’d just buy a tablet.
The article is titled “What We Want From Apple.” I have no idea what “we” you are speaking of, but each and every iPhone owner I have ever spoken with has longer battery life on their list of ‘wants’. I never heard an owner say ‘I am sure glad they made the iPhone 5 thinner – my 4s was so thick’ but I did hear them lament about the poor battery life iPhones have.
Finally a bigger screen! So excited for this so I can go back to the iPhone. So funny to hear all these people that think that they dont want a bigger screen. You can still use everything with one hand with a s4/s5! (How important is this really?) Plus it makes watching videos, surfing the web, and typing so much better! (Things that really matter with a smart phone). Come on guys have you even seen and iPad!? They are huge, not even close to any of the “phablet” phones, not even the notes. After 4s i went to Samsung becuase of the bigger screen and when I borrow my friends ipohnes it feels like a babies phone and is so lame for web surfing and video watching. Once apple finally releases bigger screen phones and people get used to them, I predict people will all think that they old iphones were to baby phones.
