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

Here... Since you cant seem to accept me at my word you pompous ass.
"Raymond Soneira, president of DisplayMate Technologies, has challenged Apple's claim. He says that the physiology of the human retina is such that there must be at least 477 pixels per inch in a pixelated display for the pixels to resolve (become imperceptible to the human eye) at a distance of 12 inches (305 mm). The astronomer and science blogger Phil Plait notes, however, that, "if you have [better than 20/20] eyesight, then at one foot away the iPhone 4's pixels are resolved. The picture will look pixellated. If you have average eyesight [20/20 vision], the picture will look just fine....So in my opinion, what Jobs said was fine. Soneira, while technically correct, was being picky." The retinal neuroscientist Bryan Jones offers a more detailed but similar analysis and comes to a similar conclusion: "...I'd find Apple’s claims stand up to what the human eye can perceive.""
Even an Apple fansite agrees.
"Unfortunately, there’s no universally accepted limit to what the human eye can see. According to DisplayMate’s Dr. Raymond Soneira, the industry’s go-to guy on display technology, the resolution of a perfect human retina is 0.6 arc minutes per pixel.
So for the iPhone 4S, for example, to be truly Retina, it would need to have pixels that are 40% smaller than it currently has.
