RE: So about 174 or 175 pixels per inch for the 6.3" model

You are a complete moron. I am looking at an iPhone 5 right now, my co-workers phone. It is in front of my face as I type. I am looking at it with Anandtech's site loaded and I can make out pixels. I am not saying its too low of a DPI for enjoyable viewing, it looks fine, but I CAN make out pixels. All I am saying is 300-326 DPI is not the end of the rainbow here. Higher
better. I can see the DPI/sharpness difference when holding a DNA to an iPhone 5. I did it a a Verizon store over a month ago and I can see pixels on the 326 DPI iPhone. Not annoyingly so, but I can see them. The only Annoying thing about it is the size and lack of resolution to remote in to other computers and maneuver them. It just doesn't work well. Sorry you cannot accept that, but that is the way it is. You can enjoy your low res phone. I do not want it for alot of reasons, but the #1, by far is the lack of res. I could get past the rest, but 1136x640 just isn't enough for a high end phone to me. Period. I cannot comprehend why that chokes you up, but whatever... choke away.
