I'm going to the zoo after mine arrives today! (hopefully it actually comes)

So expect lots of pics of lions and tigers and bears!

Requesting someone please post an iPhone 4 screenshot of a text heavy website (like macrumors.com) so we can compare it to a screenshot of the same site taken with a low-res iPhone. (I don't think the marketing comparison on Apple.com is accurate)

Maybe I'm missing something, but how exactly are the screenshots supposed to differ? When you take a screenshot, it's all in software... just because the screen of the iPhone 4 is sharper doesn't mean your screenshot will be sharper than one taken of the same page on a 3G or 3GS.

Here's how. It's the relative size on the same screen.

Left is iPhone 4. Right is the 3GS. The 3GS was upsized to 640X960. The native size of the iPhone 4.

The upsizing there was done with some form of filtering, it should be a pure pixel doubling for a proper comparison. Though granted, it's still clear obviously.

Here is a quick pic I just shot. Very Very bright out here today.




Also...Does video ALWAYS shoot in 720p?

Thank you! I knew the resolution bump would be a big difference, but I didn't realize it would be that much! For anyone interested, here is the low res version for comparison, re-sized 200% using Paint.NET nearest neighbor:

Correct me if I'm wrong but you really can't compare the screen resolutions unless you make them the same size.

For instance, although the iPhone 4 has higher resolution, it is still made to fit the same screen size as the iPhone 3GS, therefore when viewing it seems much clearer.

If you display it at its native resolution, you really can't tell because the iPhone 3GS looks just as good!



But what do I know!

Here's the first i've taken with my new iPhone 4. Taken looking out my office window.

(Looks like Photobucket washed it out pretty good...it looks MUCH clearer on my computer screen before uploading.)

I'm about to take some pictures. Did anyone realize the Apple Store app icon isn't updated for the retina display? I just found that ironic.

Yes you want to resize the low res pics to be the same size for comparison. Also, when resizing you probably want to use "nearest neighbor" (no resampling) to get the effect of having fewer but larger pixels. (like the low res iphones have)

You probably want to stand at the other side of the room as well unless your pc monitor is 300 dpi. (lol)
