>>52369228 Right now yeah, it's pretty much only found in the xperia premium. Due to battery costs it literally only runs 4k in the native gallery app.
In a few years when the power use goes down and gpu's can handle them fine, you'd probably see a difference, but not a huge one. Watching native 4K on camera shots and youtube would be cool. MKBHD has a good one on the Z5 premium where he shows you can't really see a difference between the two unless you go up really close.
Even 1440 is a meme. I can't discern individual pixels on my 1080 phone display even when I try. 1440 does nothing but directly waste battery (AMOLED), or create extra chip workload thus indirectly waste battery (LCD).
You can watch a 4K movie on your 720p phone and someone else's 4K phone and you won't be able to tell the difference.
It won't help push shit, because consumers will just start crying that 4K doesn't even matter like they did with 720p or DVD vs. bluray. They'll want to stick with their cheap, ghetto shit that doesn't require a good CPU/GPU just to play video.
>>52374105 Actually, you're wrong on the amoled part. Since blacks are off, those pixels do not waste battery or create unnecessary CPU/GPU workload since nothing is being rendered. 1440p makes sense on super amoled screens, but on LCD you're right, its a waste.
>>52374105 Depends, Samshit definitely needs more than 2560x1440 because of the shitty PenTile checkerboard matrix, yet a 1080p LCD phone next to it has indiscernible pixels. Maybe Samsung should stick to getting 3 stripe subpixels, but we all know they'll just market 4k because bigger numbers are better, and you'll still be able to see an ugly checkerboard pattern because of Pentile.
It's a gimmick more than anything else, unfortunately. Useless and a drain on the battery regardless of it being an LCD or AMOLED, doesn't matter, it just sucks down battery life like a fat person drinking Big Gulps.
Hell, I actually prefer to find 1280x720 these days and they're not all that easy to find in a decent devices. The Moto X 2013 was pretty much the last decent 1280x720 phone ever made, really, and even today it's still a great piece of hardware.
I have a Droid Turbo and while I like the device overall I wish it just had a 1280x720 AMOLED panel in it instead of the 2560x1440 AMOLED it actually has which is 4x the resolution meaning 4x the battery consumption.
I get great battery life but it could be a LOT better if not for that god damned QHD bullshit panel. It's pointless on such a small device - 5.2" panel at 565 ppi making it one of the "sharpest" displays in existence - is just a waste of power even if I use primarily black themes.
Fuck I wish this had a 1280x720 panel in it, I really really do.
OLED panels don't use power for black - it's when a pixel is lit that power gets consumed so having dark/black themes can save a ton of power on OLED (either AMOLED or Super AMOLED) panels.
LCD panels are just the opposite: the native state of an LCD is off aka transparent which lets all the backlight pass through. It's when you block the backlight by powering on the liquid crystals that power gets used.
On an OLED display, black uses the least power (none actually) while white uses the most.
On an LCD, white uses the least power (because it's allowing all the backlight to pass through) while black consumes the most (because it's acting like a blind or shutter blocking off all the backlight).
People really should learn how this shit works before making stupid fucking comments like that one referenced in the post number above.
>>52377552 >LCD panels are just the opposite: the native state of an LCD is off aka transparent which lets all the backlight pass through. It's when you block the backlight by powering on the liquid crystals that power gets used. Depends what type. Some can be Natively Black or Natively White depending on how the Polarizers are oriented. IPS LCDs are always Normally Black because of how its made, so it indeed has lower power consumption for displaying black. TN are mostly Normally white, that's why on older Macs, when you use them outdoors, the sunlight shines through the Apple logo, but not on newer Retina Macs.
4k makes more sense than 1440p due to the fact that you want a 2:1 upscale. The current internet is built around 1080p way more so than 720p. With that said I would rather just stick with a 1080p display.
>4k >not actually 4k >more like 2160p >idiots using the horizontal resolution as the way to describe video formats now instead of the tried and true decades old method of using the vertical >stupid fucking people will be the death of us all
>>52377730 /thread tfw they'll never release the sheer pixel density on phones today, into the large screen t.v market tfw plasma is dead because of retards practically forcing other retards to buy LCD instead
tfw i have no face when the market is determined by retards and the mass amount of marketers on store floors
RIP plasma displays, you are clearly too good for this gay earth.
>>52377673 You did decent. You could have saved a few bucks and went with the z3 compact. Same amount of RAM, storage, and same screen. Only difference's are that it doesn't have a shitty SOC in it (810 is shit) and Sony will drop support in a year (they only update for around 18 months).
>>52377879 Gaming killed plasma. It would cause terrible burn in. If you wanted to do any sort of gaming, you had to avoid plasma. It was only near the end that they fixed that problem. You were better off spending the money on a high end Sony TV.
>>52369228 Currently yes, not supported and the processors aren't even fast enough for it. In the future that will change, but screens aren't going to get any bigger so there still won't be much point to having that many pixels.
>>52372272 The thin about 4k screens on cellphones is that unless you like watching your screen trough a magnifying glass, it's not actually going to provide you any benefit over considerably lower, but still high PPI, devices.
As much as I loathe Apple, they at least went the sensible route of only taking their "retina" displays to the point where at normal use distance you don't see any more benefits with higher resolution due to the accuracy of human eyesight.
