Why do companys keep putting quadhd screens on smartphones? Would anyone else rather have better battery life without any percievable quality diference?
You have to keep in mind that those 2560x1440 phones use a pentile matrix so they need a higher ppi to hide the effect as compared to a regular RGB matrix. Plus the VR headset also benefits from a higher ppi.
Recently upgraded from 720p nexus4 to the s6 edge plus 720p to 1440p was such a huge jump and loving every minute of it, battery life is also amazing on this phone, granted I came from the nexus4 witch only lasts a few hours, so no experience with battery centric phones. Camera is the best hands down, I use Snapchat alot so the lowlight from nexus4 to edge 6+ is literally from not seeing anything to seeing myself. Also case options. Nexus is not as popular as the galaxy phones so I was very limited to cases
Have a 1080p xperia z5 @5.5 inches. Fucking impossible to see pixels. No problem whatsoever. Xperia z5 premium with a 4k screen is just next level bullshit. Why do consumers get a boner over pixels they can't see?
It's the only way the idiots making them know how to market them. They know smartphones have reached a point where they have no new good ideas, but they keep shoveling shit in there just to have bigger numbers than the last year's model and the result is overheating and awful battery life.
QHD and 4K will push MANUFACTURERS to increase battery life. Sure Samsung fucked up but S7 might bring awesome battery life. I'll never understand this argument. It can be a 800x480 display and MANUFACTURERS will still give you average battery life. Thought /G was smarter than this.
You're dumber than dogshit. The biggest battery in the world won't help when your SoT is in the toilet due to placebo PPI.
And li-ion battery life improvements are at a dead end anyway. Unless there's a new type of battery, you can forget it.
Stupid bitch don't call me an idiot you fucking faggot. Remember the HTC One Evo days? Phones STILL had "decent" battery back then.
And today we STILL have phones with decent batteries with all of their internal and screen improvements.
SO NATURALLY GOING BY HISTORY YOU STUPID MOTHER FUCKER. manufacturers WILL FIND A WAY TO PROVIDE GOOD BATTERY LIFE DESPITE THE HIGH RES SCREENS
STUPID BITCH DONT EVER INSULT ME YOU DISGUSTING INSECT. ENJOY YOUR SHIT BURGER KING JOB
I thought high dpi phones are a meme too for a long time but this is the reason for me I wouldn't mind even higher resolution on our phones
>Why do companies put 1440p screens on phones
Because it's something to make a phone stand out when marketing specs.
This brings the question, what resolution is best. This depends pretty much on a single question right now: Are you using your phone for VR?
>No, I am not using my phone for VR
720p. Anything higher is pretty much placebo unless you start downscaling things.
>Yes, I do use my phone for VR
As long as the phone can power it, higher is better right now as far as I'm aware, which brings in 1440p is a meaningful resolution. The DPI actually becomes quite noticeable when holding looking at distant things in an image 2 inches from your face.
desu it's pretty dank on the note5 senpaitachi. Got it a few weeks ago.
Not him, but I'd love a 720p 4.5 inch phone.
While my g3 and it's 1440p screen looks beautiful, I feel like its overkill and killing my battery.
720p, 4.5 inch, flagship specs, big battery.
Would buy it in a heartbeat.
Another reason to prefer 720p is performance since its rendering half as many pixels as 1080p.
It might not look as good when held close but for me since I'm usually holding it about half a meter from my face the difference is negligable.
On the other hand, I'm thinking of getting cardboard vr for my g3 since it is 1440p and I'm curious.
Is Oneplus really worth it? I wanted an OPO but it's out of stock and the X is kinda the "meh" version of it.
Innovator edition doesn't work with the note5 you literal retard. Why would I get the version that doesn't work with my phone?
