why on earth does the iPhone 5 and GS3 not support 4K at 5-900$
If you can physically see 4K of detail on a 4" screen without a magnifying glass I will give you $10,000.

Thats about the size of a fine blonde hair. Generally possible to see without a magnifier if you have good eyes. Of course, counting hairs that are touching will not be possible due to lack of resolution, but thats the point. You want your pixel to be significantly smaller than the resolution of your eye, so you don't get any aliasing-effects.
4 Pixel per arcminute should generally do the trick, so if you use the phone in 30cm (12 inch) distance, go for 20 µm pixels. Thats 1270 ppi, and still only half the print resolution of a high-quality magazine.
