    Who knows if this is true but could this make you up grade if you weren't going to?

    I'm still undecided about upgrading, but that wouldn't be a deciding factor for me. I know that my iPhone 6 doesn't have the best display on the market, but I see nothing wrong with it. Sure, if I spent some time using something better it would probably be hard to go back, but right now I have never looked at my phone and felt that the resolution is too low.

    I think this would be an added bonus for me, but I still plan on upgrading regardless.

    A screen resolution upgrade is overdue, especially on the 4.7 model IMO. The 4.7 model having a 750p display in 2016/2017 would be ridiculous tbh.

    Definitely a step in the right direction. I'd consider upgrading if the new iPhones get better cameras, higher screen resolutions, and a space black color option. It'll be interesting to hear what made up name Uncle Phil will come up with for these "next generation" displays

    I really doubt they are changing the resolution. The next change will be to oled.
    I cant make out pixels on my 6s 4.7 so I dont know how much more resolution we need on these phones.

    I would love a 1080p iPhone 7, wouldn't get a 1440p iPhone 7 Plus because the phone is too big imo, 1440p screens look amazing though.

    Went to an HTC 10 from 6S Plus. Quad screen, expandable storage, fast charging, OIS, etc. There are better phones out there folks.

    If they change the resolution be prepared for a new term to replace 'retina'. Any guesses?

    Well they already call it Retina HD even on the Plus versions that have a higher PPI and a higher resolution than the regular versions (which they also refer to as Retina HD).

    Yeah, I noticed that when the 6 series came out. That would've been the logical choice, but they've gone and ruined it!:p

    Let's just call it: Retina HD Max+

    Why? Why not? :D

    "Retina Loupe"
    For those that like to view their screen with a magnifier.

    You should check out the Galaxy S7 or the LG G5.You will find text on the iPhone blurry when you look at their sharpness

    The iPhone 4.7" could do with a bump in pixels to take it over 400dpi

    The iPhone 5.5" is probably ok with 1080p at 401 dpi given its an IPS LCD display. If they changed to Amoled and used a diamond or pentile matrix arrangement, then they would need 1440p in order to keep the same 'effective' dpi as the LCD.

    1440p LCD is nice, but not really needed on the 5.5", but lets face it, no one will turn it down as long as they keep the same battery life as existing model.

    But certainly the 4.7" is in need of the boost priority wise. And yes, that probably would make me get an iPhone 7, as currently I have no interest in one right now with my SE & 6S.

    I have tried out those phones and my iphone screen does not look blurry at all.
    What I like about those screens are the colors, they just pop right at you.

    This is the same argument we've always had with the mac..some are all about the hardware..fine
    I'll stay with the macs and iPhone :)
    The software does matter.
