Notice how the people saying the iPhone resolution is better are all using Samsung phones.

OCN is a pixelated blur on the Galaxy S because of AMOLED. I tried it out in store, and it was actually the deciding factor in my choice of the Desire. Like I said, 66% of the resolution it claims. I have no trouble browsing OCN on my Desire. It needs to scale slightly in portrait mode, but that is solely because the aspect ratio is thinner, not because of the resolution.
I'm sorry but from personal experience, it's not. It looks great. I own one and use it everyday. Technically your right, but in real world usage. It's awesome I love it.

I have no idea...even if it was after, I wouldn't be surprised. My systems have never benchmarked well, and that's wy I stopped doing it. My framerates have always been similar to others with similar setups but the artificial benchies are always 20-30% lower.

If your basing your decision on screen resolution, you deserve an iPhone 4 lol.

To all of you iPhone haters & insulters, you need to stop. The guy is simply asking when will Android be fronting a better resolution.

I am sorry, I would take 1920 x 1080p on my tiny Droid2 any day of the week.

That being said, when it comes to resolution, there is no technological substitute, even progressive resolution formats pale in comparison to hefty resolutions.

I don't think this is just a hardware thing, all though the supply for the majority of the handset touch screens seems to be much lower than the manufacturer's would like. This is also an OS thing. Because our Operating System is entirely flexible, it would have to make a front end UI that supports anything higher customized per every single handset. I have seen some of the code, and there is some optimization for variable width x height resolutions, but most of it is hard coded in with (x,y). I think they can bring out the next phone resolution tomorrow, but they must feel what we have is adequate for use not to mention it will be pricier screens they have to purchase, and software they have to develop. Then they have to have a branch of development maintaining the new gear, and old development team maintaining older gear. Or you have one development team doing everything. From a developer standpoint, I wouldn't like having to deal with so many different products with just one team.

This is where its easier for a company to have focus on ONE phone and a matching iOS to bring about radical changes. Motorola has about 7 android based handsets (which I think is stupid/silly.) You spread your forces to thin and you lose, but if you put all your eggs in one basket you face palm when it drops.

Even on my Droid2, I have never felt my resolution pixelated or even watching Archer in 720p (converted to 848x480) look anything less than perfect. I will see if I can post a screenshot from my phone for you when I get to work.

I also looked up that AMOLED information, it appears Nathris looks spot on, and I had NEVER ever heard anything like that. I actually though AMOLED was an upgrade tech to my style screen but now I wouldn't take it ever. I will take my dimmer LCD

Its so amusing how personal you guys get when talking about android vs. iPhone. I was actually interested in a potential switch to android, but somehow you want to talk trash because I'm stating a fact. The iPhone screen does look better, you can't deny that.

All I was asking was if any android based phone will be coming ou with a higher resolution, and I got the answer eventually. Thanks to those of you who actually helped.

Yer sorry bout that...
Its a very heated discussion.

Hopefully my first post helped, there was a link to a phone that had the same size screen and resolution, but ran android.

It only gets heated because you guys can't handle the fact that apple does some things better than you precious droids. Lol

The only screen I've seen come close is the nook color. But that's not a phone.

You asked whether the Android would ever match iPhone screen resolution, which is not something anyone here can answer without guessing.

Maybe it will, maybe not. I wouldn't be surprised if Android passes the iPhone in that regard based on history.

It just seems you asked a question to stir the pot. It's like I ask, "Will the Android ever not suck? I'd consider switching but..."

Hm...

Btw, I really want to know guys. O_o




Bahahahahahahaha X3

Well I did take the time to explain why we won't see larger resolutions by explaining how 960x640 on a 3.5" screen is no different than 800x480 on a 3.7" screen...


In case you missed it, heres an easier analogy...

Take your phone and hold it 1' from your face like you would in normal usage.

Can you see the pixels? Chances are you'll answer no. For me, I can't see the pixels on my HTC Desire from 1'.


Now, if I were to take my screen, and replace it with a 1024x640 screen, would I even notice the difference?

If I can't see the pixels at 800x480 I'm not going to be able to see the pixels at 1024x640, so that means that the extra resolution makes no impact whatsoever, and I am better off with a lower resolution screen, which saves me money, battery, and increases performance.


For 4 inch+ screens however, especially those of the AMOLED variety we probably will see a resolution increase. (I think an 800x480 4.3" screen is dumb anyway)
