can you help the other retards by telling the rest of us how you were so gullible as to buy into that horse shit? i felt like every time this came up we were abundantly clear that it was a retarded feature to splurge for.
>>
>>52952912
There is NO need for a QuadHD screen, it is literally impossible with the naked eye to see the difference with a 1080 screen.

All it does is drain charge from your battery and money from your wallet.

Be advised.

i didn't cae that much about the screen as I cared about the rest of the phone. I have a lg g4 btw

>>52952972
I can assure you when I got the M9 before the G4, I did see a difference. I saw the pixels, and I didn't like the screen because of it.
>>
>>52952972
I can see the pixels in an iPhone screen, and can't in mine. 1440p here.

That's because it's been lying in a drawer.

the lg g3 is so shit oh my god
so many people use it at my work and it's such a wretched thing
>>
>>52956913
no, that's because i've properly destroyed 6 tempered glass protectors and 3 leather cases.
>>52956965
won't lie it was pretty shit out of the box, but as with almost every android (apart from the thermal throttling issue) it can be fixed.

Do you sit several feet from your screen? If you are at a normal distance from the screen (about 6 inches) then you can see the difference if you concentrate. There is a difference.
>>
>>52957037
One of them has the colors on a portion of the screen warped probably because the excess heat fucked up the screen.
It burns, and I use an MBP so I know heat issues.

It can be pretty good my man, but very flawed out of the box.
The replaceable battery has also come in handy many times, for example when I've taken more than 2000 pictures in a single day.
>>
At least amoled isn't a meme it really is the most beautiful type of screen

Holy fuck, six inches from your eyes?

Yes, or else you are not exploiting the graphics available. Also it will let the screen fill your field of vision.

I have always stated how stupid was anything larger than 1280x720 for a 5 inch phone. Were there is a marginal benefit going 1920x1080 for a 5~5 inches phone regarding sharpness of small text, truth is that is not really even slightly confortable reading a zoomed out website/book with minuscle text to the point the resolution would have any benefit...

However, While QUADHD and even 4k are utterly ridiculous pointless marketing features for clueless peope that think more is better, I can't really say that development of such displays for high end phones was bad, since I'm still hyped for Virtual Reality Headsets and for those applications anything bellow 1440 lines of resolution is unnaceptable due to magnification of the lenses.

And while some try to argue that a 4k vr is pointless since modern gpus wouldn't be able to render games at such high resolution, the solution for that is already pretty clear: Low Latency 120hz Eye tracking with local rendering. This has already proven to work with Fove VR Headset. it's a chame that the first Oculus won't implement any Eyetracking technology to popularize it with developers and gpu drivers early, though.

LG G3 master race reporting in.
>>
>>52957069

The point is, if the Note 4 was exactly the same than it was but with an improved FHD display instead of a QHD, the battery would be EVEN BETTER.

QHD has twice the pixels to render than FHD, this means more work for the integrated graphic chips, this mean
>>
>>52957551
Shitty 3d performance though, not all games have a resolution setting.

>virtual home button occupying space of the screen
Nope.apk
I prefer my Note 4.

You're going to go fucking blind you goddamn retard. You wasted your money, your battery and now you're going to ruin your eyesight. EPIC BRO JUST SIMPLY EPIC.
>>
>>52952904
There are a few things you can do. If your phone is rootable and bootloader unlocked, you can install cyanogenmod (probably) and then use a root-level program to change the internal resolution to something less retarded.
>>
>>52957937
>falling for the watching close to the screen damage your eyesight meme
KEK.
>>
>>52957964
Unless you want to look to a 4 inches minuscle image with black borders all around it, there is no point in reducing the display resolution since the gpu will still need to upscale the lowered resolution to be displayed on all the screen and any decent upscale algorithm (bicubic, lanczos or better) actually consumes calculation and thus battery. This would only help for 3D applications, for regular UI display I doubt there would be significant battery savings by doing that.
>>
>>52958035
Yes it's totally a meme, confirmed when I talked to my professional optomotrist and he personally told me it's a bad idea to shove shit right into your face to see all the pretty pixels.
>>
>>52958086
It can't possibly be worse than leaving it at 4k can it?
>>
>>52958149
Upscaling a 1280x720 video into my native QHD monitor using Laczos (which actually isn't the best upscaling algorhtim and produces ringing artifacts, mind you) consumes over 25% of my 970's video engine processing power. Yes, I think it would be worse than rendering the UI natively.
>>
>>52958367
Welp guess 4k memetards are fucked then. Sorry OP. Try and sell it to some gullible retard I guess.
>>
>>52952972
You actually CAN tell the difference between 720, 1080, 1440 and above with the naked eye (talking about ~5 inch screens)
But the same rule applies as it does with super expensive stuff like "audiophile 1k$+ headphones": if we are honest, it does not make a big enough difference to deal with the downsides of these products for a big majority of users (talking 90%+).
With headphones the drawback is obviously the price, with this thing, its the battery life.
>>
>>52952904
Who the hell had the idea to put 1440p or even 2160p on a fucking 6" screen. Anything above 1080p is just a waste of battery.
>>
>>52958118
Different anon here. It is indeed bad to watch at screens very close to your eye for too long, but I dont think the anon above was talking about a distance closer than when you read a book.

Its not bad for your eyes because its a fucking screen, but because of the distance. Did your doc forget to tell you that, or did you leave it unmentioned on purpose?


>b-but screens stress the eye more
Not really, unless the screen is the only or main source of light.
The placebo effect works in both ways, maybe if you stop believing all the bullshit people tell you, you wold live a way happier life.

I used to be like you. then I got a qHD phone and did a complete 360. I went from 720 -> 1080 -> 1440, each time I switched I'm more satisfied with the screen.
>>
>>52952972
It does when programmers still can't do antialiasing right.
>>
>>52959445
I went from 1080p to 720 and noticed no difference.

My qhd screen doesn't kill battery too bad, get 4 days usually

>>52952990
What are you doing with that phone? Cracking encryption for NSA? My G4 lasts for two full days, three on particularly light usage.
