Lack of a true HD screen, smooth move Apple.
And lots of lovely black lines on apps!!
Yes even the goophone has a 720 p screen. Maybe apple made theirs lower res so they dont get sued for having an exact copy.
Give us time. I know myself and many devs will be scrambling on this. Knowing things are coming, and being able to test for them are different things. Think back to how the first iPhone handled Apps and how quickly that sorted
How would you plan on fitting 1920 x 1080 on a screen that small? The aspect ratio is 1.7750 vs 1.7777 and the content will be scaled down accordingly.
More importantly, why would you want it?
It doesnt have to be 1080 to be an HD display. iphone 5 should have been at least 1280x720, the new standard for every other high end phone, except the iphone. Then again, its taken this long for LTE, maybe the iphone 7 will finally have an HD display
Yeah, I want 4K, retina pixels are just too huge
Why are you still here? Just get one of that standard high end phones. You could have done weeks ago, no HD resolution was obvious for a long time.
I cannot believe it wasn't even 720p
Seriously, quit your bitching and go buy a phone you like!
I did not notice them call it a "retina display" in the presentation actually.
Maybe they did and I missed it?
Yes it is still is Retina. They mentioned it in the keynote and have it in their specifications and promotional pages on the iPhone website. Also, their technical specifications show this.
This should be an automated reply for every post like that
Not sure if they verbally said it, but it is still retina.
An they will still sell it like the most amazing phone in the world... people will say, oh my god yes!... and then they will run to the stores and buy the new iphone. I think Apple has the best marketing department in the world
I don't understand why the resolution needs to be any higher?
It just turns into a resolution pissing contest as they say. For the size and distance it is used from the eye, pixels are indistinguishable or what Apple call a retina display.
Why does it need to be higher?
It's a phone display... as long as the DPI is high enough to not see pixels... does it really matter?
And I bet it doesn't adversely affect sales one bit. Apple will tell you what you need, want and to shut your mouth and take it.
Personally, I don't care one whit about "specs" and what the box says it has
To me, it is all about performance and what my eyes tell me
To my eyes, I can't tell a difference between these minute differences
And I don't feel the need to boast that it has this or that number X number
And I don't feel one bit inferior or deprived because it doesn't
The 140px difference is indistinguishable to the human eye on a screen that size. You'd never know it didn't have it. But you WOULD notice if everything was OFF by 140 pixels because they messed up the width of old apps.
It's because 1136x640 allows iPhone 5 to run older apps with black border only on top and bottom (portrait orientation) of the screen and not increase the width of the device.
The difference between 1136x640 and 1280x720 is fairly trivial anyway. Maintaining backward compatibility and usability are more important than 144x80 pixels.
Not when you are increasing the screen size. Moving to a larger screen but sticking with a 640 non HD display is just beyond stupid. Make your devs create new HD apps for 720 and be done with it. Upscaling apps is cheaping out. A high end device with a 640 display is a joke.
But then again people here seem to not understand higher resolution means more power needed to run it, which affects battery life and device performance.
Phone hardware is a delicate balance. You fit what you can in a small form factor and get rid of whats not needed, like an HD display when the screens pixels are so small you can't see them.Why waste the extra processing power?
The ppi is still 326 (retina). Why is adding pixels you can't even see more important than maintaining backwards compatibility? Enlighten me.
