Depends on the movie...I've found I could copy over my kids' movies in 720p and save some disk space and I won't notice. My kids could probably care less if it was in some old 4:3 resolution, but I don't want to be annoyed if I am watching it with them.
However, in the live action movies I have to keep the 1080p resolution. It isn't a night and day difference, but it still a difference. Though this is on a 44" TV. My Samsung 4G touch here supposedly has a much higher resolution then my old iPhone 3GS, but I can't really tell on videos or pictures...some other things like my Nook app I can tell though. I can turn the font smaller and it still stays really crisp and easy to read.
I still noticed a significant difference between 1080p vs 720p. It's huge. It all depends on the screen(OLED,LCD etc...) and how big the screen is.Though,on my 24" Dell monitor, you can easily tell even then, 1080p vs 720p, on a smaller screen you could tell that there is a difference.
