iPhone resolution

Hi Forum,

so what is Apple going to do with their weird resolution? They have to go up eventually right? And doubling again seems really hard technically, and it would give a 2272x1280, which is again a weird resolution.

If only they started out with 360 wide, retina would be 720 wide and we would have a nice 720p panel in the iPhone 5.

Any thoughts? What are they going to do/should be doing?

Hi vmachiel,

I think Apple will find a way to make it work!

Going by Apple's definition of a Retina display, there's technically no need to make it any higher as the difference would be unnoticeable. I can't see the resolution changing any time soon.

There is no need for a higher resolution. Look up the law of diminishing returns

They are currently focusing on making every single apple display a retina one. Odd resolution comes with the format of the screen.

Ideally I would like Apple to just switch to a 720p screen and then be done with it. But I don't have high hopes for this as Apple just changed the screen resolution and they like to be different.
I have a dream that one day iOS users, Android users, and Windows Phone users will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
