Not a popular post I'm sure, but it is true. The HTC One X has the best quality display on the market. It is better than the iphone 5 display.
I do not know why HTC has such a poor market share, but it is NOT b/c their phones suck. They are the best engineered phones on the market today. The One X is tough as nails and bests the iPhone 5 in many areas.

Do we need retina + resolution? Nope

I think there's a difference between discerning pixels and discerning quality. For example, I can't see individual pixels on my 1366x768 TV from across the room. But I'm sure I would notice the increase in picture quality if it transformed into a 1080P or 4K TV.

Although I agree that there are other areas of the iPhone that should be improved first, Apple has yet to reach the pinnacle of screen quality.
