    720p and lower resolution screens needs to die a quick death. 1080p resolution is perfect for any screen size and you don't need to go higher than that.
    On one of my tablets I can see pixels on its 1080p screen. I can assure that 1080p is not high enough.

    Sorry I meant just phones. Tablets can have 1440p and higher screens.

    I can definitely tell that my Note 4's screen is sharper than the Note 3's. The Note 3's screen is great. The Note 4's is mind-boggling razor sharp.

    That may primarily be because of the fact that the Note 3 had a big screen coupled with 1080p, giving it a significantly less PPI count than competition, it had less than 400.

    And the Note 4 has a 500+ PPI display, while Apple may have people believe you can't see above 326, you can.

    If you had a smaller device from 2013, like a Nexus 5 the PPI difference would have been smaller.

    Buuut....QHD displays are indeed useful for phablets.

    So is the new fad toward 2k and 4k displays on smartphones an actually useful feature people want in smartphones, or are OEMs just desperate to find something, ANYTHING, to gain leverage in the spec wars? Can anyone REALLY tell the difference between 1920 x 1080 and 2560 x 1440 on a 5-inch screen? Or does 1440p on such a small screen do nothing but drain the battery faster?

    My Galaxy S3 "only" has a 720p screen at 316 ppi and my Nexus 7 "only" has a 1920 x 1200 display at 323 ppi. I seriously cant see any pixels on either device. I think a high res display would only make a difference on a screen larger than 8 inches. But even then, I used to be disappointed that the Nexus 9 "only" has a 2048 x 1536 display (288 ppi) but when I held an N9 in person the screen looked great. So why do we need phones with 2560 x 1440 displays?

    I assume a thread like this has already been posted before, so sorry if that's the case.

    Yes they're useful features on smartphones, because they make DISPLAYS LOOK BETTER, especially displays that have pentile displays (Note 4). The common argument is you can't see individual pixels on a 1080p display, so why bother upgrading to a 1440p display. And while this is true, the fact remains that upgrading to a 1440p display makes EVERYTHING look sharper and crisper, even though you still can't see the individual pixels.

    Watch this review of the LG G3, because I can't explain it as well as he can:



    Oh and btw I don't mean to nitpick but a "4K" display would have a resolution of 3840 X 2160, also known as Ultra HD (UHD). The correct term for 2560x1440 would be quad HD (QHD).

    I'd like to compare an UHD display vs a QHD display at the same size...say 7 or 8". I wonder how much sharper the 4K display would look.

    Here is something to think about especially for those people on tiered data plans, don't go stream 4k video unless you are prepared for the overage charges that result when you go over your allotment, and most public Wi-Fi can't handle it. So be careful what you wish for, because it will cost you.

    4K is way excessive for a normal phone use, but they will make it and we will buy it.

    280 PPI or higher is all I need. 4" phones at 720, 5" at 1080.

    The display on this old S5 still looks great to me. I can't discern any pixels.
