So no 4K screen? That's a let down.

Is it? I mean, true enough I've never owned one, but do we really actually care about having a 4k on our phones? 2560x1440 seems pretty impressive to me, and when we get to the point where we have a 5" screen with higher resolution than (most of our) 22-26" monitors, do we really need more, when it's going to chomp through our already terrible battery life?

I'd happily take a phone with a 2560 screen I can actually use for 12 hours over a 4k screen'd phone I can only use for 8.

Never said it was needed, I was being kinda ironic. All the speculation I read on the run up was pointing to a 4K screen, or a 2560*1440. I have a Note3 which has an amazing 1080p screen which still blows my mind at how good a portable device can look. I really don't see a need to go past this. Good to see samsung not getting carried away, unlike the pre-launch rumors.

The S3 can certainly manage 12 hours of screen on constant use (I've done it several times). So long as the battery is incrementally improved each gen I see no reason that can't be maintained while still increasing CPU capability and screen resolution. There are, of course, limits.

I've been keeping an eye on this and the Sony Xperia Z2 for a while now. I find it interesting Samsung went the route of IP67 whereas Sony decided on IP58.

Taken from wiki, this indicates:

6 = No ingress of dust; complete protection against contact (dust tight)
7 = Ingress of water in harmful quantity shall not be possible when the enclosure is immersed in water under defined conditions of pressure and time (up to 1 m of submersion).

5 = Ingress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment; complete protection against contact (dust proof)
8 = The equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions which shall be specified by the manufacturer. Normally, this will mean that the equipment is hermetically sealed. However, with certain types of equipment, it can mean that water can enter but only in such a manner that it produces no harmful effects.

I'm somewhat curious that Sony didn't (or was unable to?) make their phone dust proof given it has greater water resistance.

With regards to screen resolution, I'm sure I don't need to tell anyone on here that anything over 300ppi is utterly, indisputably pointless. Even if you have the most incredible close vision, your retinas are biologically incapable of differentiating between a 720p and 1080p resolution on a 5" display.

This. Really excited for The New HTC One / M8. The dual cameras for aftershot refocusing looks like a brilliant feature - as long as it's true. No-one seems to be tackling HTC speaker wise either which is surprising.

Nope. Even ignoring measures of acuity other than line-differentiation (e.g. Hyperacuity), the AMOLED panels Sansung use only show their rated DPI in the green channel. Red and Blue are each at half that, due to Pentile's RGBG layout (and Pentile defining two subpixels per pixel rather than three).

I will admit I am not as up on smartphones as I used to be, but my impression was that at the current resolutions and PPI, pentile was indistinguishable from non-pentile. Everything you said is correct, of course, but does not matter anymore.

What you've all missed is that no QHD screen = probably no QHD screen for Oculus Rift.

That's the actual news.

I have got a S4 at the moment and to be honest my next phone will not be a Samsung, I want something now that actually feels sturdy in my hands or pockets and not like I am going to snap it.

I will be keeping and eye on HTC for my next phone.

Would really be good if they changed the design I find the HTC One's design more interesting, im not really interested at 4k for a phone, what would that really benefit? Pixels would only matter on larger devices in my opinion
