These days, it's 1366 x 768 on my laptop and 1600 x 900 on my desktop.

Honestly, the only reason these resolutions "work" is that most TV is produced for 16:9 now.

>>52241318

On desktop, main 1080p + secondary 720p is the bare minimum. Dual 1080p is a sweet spot for comfort and bang for buck. From there it's up to taste, some people like having three or four 1080p monitors, others might prefer two 1440p screens, others still a single ultrawide monitor.

On mobile, 1366x768 is cheap trash. 1600x900 is bearable. 1080p is standard. Anything better than that (eg. Apple's 2880x1600, the popular 3200x1800) is nice to have.

On a 4-inch phone, 720p is standard. 1080p is nice, but unnecessary. Anything higher than that is simply a joke.

>>52244499

I was using a 1600p display years before the "retina" marketing was coined. I won't deny that Apple have done something to further high-resolution displays in the mobile space, but we'd have high-resolution displays on desktops even if Apple didn't exist. If nothing else, they'd still be feverishly pushed by GPU manufacturers.

>>52244362
If he's reading Japanese he's not only reading Kanji, which is inherently Chinese. He would better have said he can read Japanese just fine. A Chinese speaker could look at Japanese texts and get the idea through the reading of the Chinese characters alone (Kanji literally means Chinese characters).

Again, who gives a shit? If you're reading those characters when they're used in Japanese, they're called kanji. I couldn't give a single shit if the symbols or meanings aren't original. You're not reading Latin when you're reading this post, are you?

>thinking Chinese is [s]derived[\s] stolen from Japanese

That was a typo which I quickly corrected, l2readingcomprehension

>strikethrough tags

where the fuck do you think you are? lmao

>>52244665

Kanji is more complex than kana and hence more challenging to read on a low-resolution screen, so it was probably worth specifying.

Japanese people are reading Chinese.
Kanji is Chinese characters.
Therefore when you read kanji you are reading Chinese. You're right, we don't read Latin when reading English because we're reading English, but Chinese and Japanese aren't an alphabet, so it really is pointless comparing an alphabet to ideograms.

Wrong. Kanji is mostly, but not 100% the same as Chinese (about 80%, iirc). There's lots of examples of kanji and Chinese characters that look the same, but have different meanings.
