    I’m tying to get a better understanding of the PPI quality of the iPhone XR since I’ve only owned Plus sized iPhones (with a higher PPI).

    For comparisons, is the PPI and Text Size on the Watch Series 4 the same as the iPhone 8?

    I currently have a Plus sized iPhone, which has a higher PPI than the 8.

    The Watch still looks good to me, but I’m not sure what the PPI is. If it’s the same PPI as the 8 and same text size (for example - the text size/resolution in a text message on the watch App) than I may consider getting an iPhone XR with the 326 PPI.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, finally same as iPhone 4-8.

    Of note the S0-S3 watches were 303. The difference is noticeable on S4... text is crisp where on S3 if you looked a certain way you could tell the density was lower.

    Thanks. I was looking for this to make a wallpaper for a watch face but could only fine the 40mm resolution.

    Are you sure? I thought all the watches have 326 PPI.
