Phone Screen Resolution and Why it Matters
- Screen display is one of the most important aspects to consider when getting a new phone.
- Display refers to the visuals you see on your screen whether it is videos, pictures, or text.
- The display quality is highly dependent on screen resolution.
- Resolution is a value obtained by multiplying the pixel numbers on the width by those on the height of the screen.
- For instance, a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels means the display has a total of 921,600 pixels.
- Display resolutions come in the following classifications;
- 1280 x 720 pixels. This resolution is referred to as High Definition (HD), indicated as 720p.
- 1920 x 1080 pixels. This resolution is referred to as Full HD, also indicated as 1080p.
- 2560 X1440 pixels. This resolution is Quad HD, also known as 2000p/2K.
- 4096 x 2160 pixels. This is a 4K resolution.
- 3,840 x 2160 pixels. This is an Ultra-HD resolution.
- While screen size determines your viewing area, pixel density (Pixel per Inch) determines the clarity and sharpness of visuals.
- Where resolution is the same, a smaller screen will have more clarity than a bigger screen due to pixel density.
