LG G4 To Feature A 3K Display

my opinion : NEED MOAR where is my 4k !!!

 

Thanks to a new leaked photo, we have learned that LG is planning to use a 3K display with some crazy resolution in its upcoming flagship smartphone. We still don't know G4's display size, but rumours point out to a slightly smaller 5.3-inch display.

With 1,620 x 2,880 pixels resolution, a pixel density would be around 626 pixels-per-inch, which is pretty impressive. For comparison, the Galaxy S5 with its 5.1-inch has 576-ppi. As we are waiting for the second quarter for the announcement, we hope there will be some new details soon.

I have to ask... Why? I can't see any benefit, it's just going to drain battery. IMO 1080p is enough for a 5 or so inch phone. 

serisouly even 720p is decent enough for 5 inches. I would rather have much better battery life. I wonder why they don't make 900p phones. That seems like the sweet spot.

I have an HTc M8, that has a good 1080p screen. I who got used to this resolution I think (but it might be placebo effect) I see some difference, if the two screen is next to each other

but as soon as I view normal videos, like youtube videos and HD movies, all I see is a screen with extremely crisp picture and bright colours.

 

It is not necessary, but good feature

 

 

But please, make laptops have larger res cheap screen, and if it could drive monitor prices down that would be pleasent

Wait, for a phone?! What the bloody fack?! Hell 3K desktop monitors would be nice since we don't really have the power to drive 4K just yet. 3K on 15-17" laptops is very reasonable too, but for a phone???!!!

Seriously anything over 1080p in a 5 ~ 6 inch screen is bullshit, why can't OEM invest on how to make our battery bigger

Yeah keep using more battery without better batteries gg LG you are a stupid company, just as any other OEM that uses more than 1080p screens for 5" or less

LG for you.

 

They have some weird fetish for high resolution screens.

 

They probably won't stop pushing till they reach 8K phone screens.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

And i thought LG broke their resolution fetish. 5.5 inch @ 1080p with the Gflex 2 is perfect

I notice 1440p on my G3, but even then it's because I have more trained eyes for higher resolutions. However, I highly doubt I'm going to notice the jump from 1440p to 3k, it will cause more problems than it's worth

I'd go as far as a 1440 screen on a 5.5-6 inch smartphone. But this is absurd.

 

Guess it's to be expected since LG is a screen manufacturer... but ugh. I like the G3, but I don't know if I can live with the G4 if it has the battery life of a camera drone.

1440p monitors are still expensive, and we're already heading for 3k in smartphones. Smartphones are developing faster than computer hardware at the moment.

In all fairness, I love the screen on the G3. That 1440p allows me to respond to the lot of you all even when I'm supposed to be doing something more important >.>

Any more than that, it just seems like wasted R&D.

Haha, I'd love to see how this affects battery life. Still, I don't see any problem with companies experimenting with this kind of thing.

Who knows, maybe it'll have some great effect we don't know about. Most likely not, but still.

Also...you people really need to understand marketing and think about the less educated tech population. Which is most of the world.

They'll buy it because of the huge numbers. "Hey, my phone's got a 3K!!! screen!! Way better. Is best bro."

It's a thing.

 

 

serisouly even 720p is decent enough for 5 inches. I would rather have much better battery life. I wonder why they don't make 900p phones. That seems like the sweet spot. 

Ew. No. I'd say 1080p is the minimum at 5".

As long as I can last a day, the battery life is fine. Until they can actually reach a FULL 2 days. There's no point in saying "yeah, I can last a day, and then half way through the second" or "most of the way through the second". If you can't last, then you'll be charging the night before anyway.

I'd say probably 85 - 90% of cell phones are under 1080p. Maybe more.

You can't lump them all into the flagships.

Where did you go to get such training? ;)

 

"Galaxy S5 with its 5.1-inch has 576-ppi"

 

Because that information is totally correct. 

 

5.1 inch 1080p screen, 576ppi, seems legit. 

There's a 1440p version of the S5 that has 576ppi.

 

In all fairness, I love the screen on the G3. That 1440p allows me to respond to the lot of you all even when I'm supposed to be doing something more important >.>

There's no such thing as wasted R&D :)

Because the average consumer doesn't give a damn about intelligent things that actually mean something. "Oh my screen has more pixels therefore it is inherently better."

A 5" 900p display is still 367ppi. There is no way that isn't enough. And if it isn't for you you should probably take for phone directly off you eyeballs.

They do the 3K thing cuz there's no other 'innovation" they can think about.

 

They release phones faster than new mobile hardware is made, so they add all these gimmicks to justify upgrading from a G3

This is getting ridiculous there has to be more innovation in mobile devices other than resolution.

Better battery life, more true colors on OLED screens, less heat, better connectivity.
