quote: You think > 200 dpi is the point of diminishing returns on a phone, why?
quote: Uh, you're clearly confused. Human vision doesn't work the way you describe; screen size is irrelevant, it's distance from the eye that determines how small the pixel can be resolved.

quote: Also, who is turning down their resolution to read the OS?
quote: I'd love to see actual numbers and statistics, rather than anecdotal sayings. Everyone around here uses computers, and there are many large labs full of dozes of them; no one turns down their resolution from anything I've ever seen. Again, I've never seen this practice occurring over the range of several hundred computer uses of various ages in this institution.
quote: And one can scale up text without having to turn down resolution, especially in Windows 7 and up, so...
quote: But, that feeds right into the psychology of trying to make things match the familiar.
quote: You can make the text bigger without running an overall lower resolution
