    I feel like the display on my iphone 6 is not as crisp as it is on the macbook pro with retina display. Is this because the resolution is lower on the iphone 6?

    The rMBP is 227 and 220 ppi for 13 and 15, respectively.

    The iPhone 6 is 326 and the 6 Plus is 401.

    It's higher on the iPhone. The Mac screen looks better because it's a higher quality display in other aspects

    You also probably hold the iPhone a little closer to your face than the laptop.

    This is the first thing I noticed when I traded in my Galaxy S5 is that the screen on the Iphone 6 is not as detailed. Pretty disappointing.

    Why no one or any website could confirm if the glass of the iphone 6 is build from corning gorilla glass

    The screen on the iphone 6 Plus is sharp, clear and absolutely amazing!

    No comparison to the regular 6.

    If it is, Apple won't admit it. "Ion-strengthened glass". Though highly prone to scratches!
