Is the difference in resolution between the 6 and 6+ noticeable?

    Still surprised how the 6 plus has a 1080p screen while the 6 has only a 720p display. It seems to be a pretty big difference in you think it will be noticeable to the naked eye?

    Don't forget that you're talking about screens of different sizes.

    I'll have to see the screens in person, but I would be surprised if you noticed much of a difference. Rather than the number of pixels, the quality will be determined more by the density which is 326 vs 401.

    Its also possible that the 6 might even look better under some circumstances since the 6+ is scaled from 3x by something like 15%. The scaling will result in some interpolation errors which will make the screen look a bit fuzzier.

    Comparing my Galaxy S5 to my iPhone 5S, there is no difference in quality due to resolution.

    According to hands on reviews, you can't tell a difference. Either way, both phones will be a significant improvement over the 5/5s and that's all you can ask for.

    I always wondered, would this mean a 40" inch 4k tv would be much higher pixel density than a 65" 4k tv?

    How the heck is anyone on here supposed to know if no one has gotten their hands on them yet?
