    Hi all..

    I'm just wondering, but maybe i'm wrong here, but the iPhone 5 has 326 ppi, the same as the 4s.

    However, since the screen is taller on the 5, at this same per-pixel, wouldn't that also mean horizontally, the pixels must be larger to fill up the extra space while still being kept at the same size?

    And if so, then resolution must then suffer yes?

    No, it just has more pixels. Same pixels per inch, more inches=more pixels.

    Exactly,

    there are the same number of pixels in a given area, there is more area, and therefor more pixels in total
