    Default PPI Question

    So i know the HTC One has a PPI of 468 Pixels per inch! But my question is that pixels per inch squared or is it just a linear pixels per inch?
    And is 468 really that big of a step up from 441? I am already set on the phone but i feel like reviewers are boasting the Pixel density but i feel like from 441 to 468 isnt a big change

    There is no difference to the naked eye above 400 pixels per squared inch.

    I have been lurking since the announcement for the HTC one. But yes, I've seen your post, that review...and even got a member of the press to show me the galaxy s4 in full sunlight for the cost of a cigarette. I think Samsung finally made a OLED screen I would be proud to use. (I wasn't too happy with the s2 or s3)

    I offered him dinner and free drinks if he would let me play with it while he ate...his reply was that he would get fired and probably flogged by his coworkers if he didn't get back to his office right away with the phone.

    The funny thing is, you would think that the HTC people at radio city or times square would be willing to let me see the one, but everyone told me that they didn't have one to show off.

    Squared? That makes no sense. Here is a description of PPI: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixel_density

    It's linear. There are that many pixels in a 1" line. The total number of pixels in a square inch area is 486^2.
