    i have seen some heated discussions about resolution of iPhones vs competition where users claim that they can see pixels and that the resolution is annoying. Do you see pixels?

    With a magnifying glass, yes I do.

    Most people who claim to see pixels at normal viewing distance just have a bit of dust on the screen, or the screen's a little grotty. Basically, they haven't a clue.

    I see pixels on my 6s at a normal viewing distance which is one of the main reasons I'm going 7 Plus this time around. It's most notable for me with text. I can see jagged outlines of most letters when reading text, which gets really annoying with extended periods of reading.

    Thanks. That's interesting and explains a lot. The general idea that 300 dpi is enough is based on 12 inch viewing distance. If yours is 8-10 inch, you need resolution at least 350-430 dpi if my math is correct.
