    I currently own the 6 Plus (love the phone) but it just is too big. I prefer the size of the 6, but the screen looks slightly pixelated to me.

    Any chance the 6S will finally increase to a 1080p screen? Haven't heard any discussion around this.

    If the screen is OLED (due to the new animated wallpapers that Jony Ive only likes with OLED screens), then I can see them making it 1080p now rather than waiting until next year. They changed the screen last year, then they would change it again this year (if OLED), then again next year for 1080p? That's too much if you ask me, that's why I think it's certainly possible, but only if the screen is OLED.

    I was wondering that myself. I'm really hoping not to have to compromise too much when downsizing. My other concern is battery life. I'm eagerly awaiting the keynote presentation.

    Only Apple can get away with a low res screen on a high end phone. I am really hope the 6S gets the 1080p upgrade. I really don't want to keep the 6 Plus for another year.

    Seriously? The iP6 screen looks pixelated and "low res" to you? You must have some super-human vision. All 1080p is going to do on a less than 5" display is use up more power.

    Screen will most likely remain the same as last years screen. Force Touch will be the new feature, not an increase in screen resolution especially when all signs are pointing to a smaller battery size.

    Yes it does look low res especially compared to the 6 Plus. You can keep saying the "Apple marketing line" but the difference from 720p to 1080p is very noticeable even on a 5" screen.

    I couldn't care less about Apple's marketing line, but the benefit of making a 4.7" screen more pixel dense is not worth the extra power it takes. I'm not even sure if there are any sub 5" phones with 1080p resolution in order you to say definitively that it makes a significant difference. The 6+ looks better because it's larger and can make better use of all those pixels.
