You're nuts if you think people can't tell the difference between 480x800 and 720p or better.

Load up any web page with text that isn't giant and the difference is obvious. For pictures, dialing people, UI, etc? Sure, you won't care. But for smartphone usage 720p makes a big difference.

I know for a fact that they can't. Not on a cellphone-sized screen. And I've proven it, as described above.

I cant tell if you are just being sarcastic or not.

Clearly there is a HUGE difference and if you or anyone else cant see it, they need an eye exam, badly, right now, before they drive.

There's very little chance that you can see better than I can.

Not being sarcastic in any way.

Do the test yourself as I described.

It doesn't make any difference beyond a certain point. And that point is far, far below 1080p, or even 720p, on a phone-sized display.

Sorry, but I can tell a difference between the 720p screen on my Nexus 4, and the 1080p screen on my friend's HTC One.

Claiming that the entire population of humanity can't tell the difference just because you can't reeks not just of arrogance, but delusion.

Thanks for not reading my posts before commenting.

It's not just me. It's me recruiting unsuspecting lay people at various locations to participate in a little demonstration. I've done it 3 or 4 times now.

If you tell people that the lesser-spec screen is actually the better-spec screen, the power of suggestion pulls through and they agree with you.

If you tell them to pick which screen has the better display, it's 50/50.

It's the way it is, and you can dismiss it all you want to, but I've done this in the real world and I know for a fact that it is true.

I see plenty phones almost every day. I have done it. I see differences from 480 to 720 and even 720 to 1080. I can see pixels on an iPhone5 and cannot on an LG G2.

Bro, I am telling you, you are wrong. There is something wrong with your "near" vision if you cant tell the difference. Some people cant see the difference between 720 and 1080 at 5 inches and some can, but if you cant see a difference at 480 to 720 or 1080, you really have an eye problem that you should heave checked.
