Ten Smartphones with the Highest Pixel Density




The smartphone wars are no longer just about design, specs and display sizes, now it’s also about having the highest resolution and pixel density that can be fitted in a relatively small display. This have resulted to smartphones equipped with screens so packed that you won’t even notice a fleck of pixel on them. If you’re looking for those kinds of smartphones, here are ten of them.

Author’s note: The smartphones listed below are those with pixel densities of at least 530ppi, arranged from highest to lowest. Pixel densities were calculated using a PPI calculator.

    My phone has 294 density and I am unable to tell the difference with my friends 400+ density. Phew.. human sight has limits for christ sake….

  2. Rion says:

    Tama si Ralph, may limit ang human sight.

    • MovieStreamerOnTv says:

      If yung viewing lang sa phone yung purpose is yes di maaappreciate, but if purpose mo is to stream it on HD TV or QHD TV or projector, that’s a different story.

    bakit walang SONY XPERIA? BRANDING

  4. jux says:

    Sabi ni steve jobs. 300ppi limit ng eyes natin. Marketing strat lang yun. Pra hindi na mag matter sa iba ang higher ppi. At my promblema mata nya .lol. Malalaman mo yun sa mga bagong smartphones. Iba ang sharpness ng screen at pulido ang icons. Kung hirap ka makita yun. Dude patingin kna sa mata mo or baka not fit for you na ang glasses mo mtaas na grado. I have glasses and i can clearly see the difference between a phone with 300 plus ppi and 400plus ppi. Hindi yun alien ang mata. Kung my hard facts kna about sa ppi limit ng mata. Pa alam mo dito. Yung totoo ha. Hindi sabi2 lang.tia

  5. teremmy says:

    Aanhin mo ang nagtataasang mga pixel density na yan kung lagi kang naghahanap ng outlet o powerbank? Marami akong nakkikitang mga high-end phones kapag ginagamit nakadim ung screeen. Para san ung pixel density nun kung madilim din at takot maubos ang battery? Nakakaaliw isipin sa ganang akin!

  6. Price Please says:

    Adding the price of these phones would be a great addition to this article :D

  7. NotaSheep says:

    I don’t understand why you need to bump up the resolution when ONE we need more battery life TWO we don’t even see the pixels at 1330×720 at a REGULAR distance away from the phone, heck even 10 inches away it’s still hard to see a pixel, and MOST IMPORTANTLY gaming and multitasking will be a lot FASTER and BETTER on a low resolution as proven by Apple.

    • Rana says:

      iPhone can’t multitask. That’s the reason why it is faster than Android.

    • cK says:

      Bakit nga ba? Bakit walang memory card expansion at hindi user-replaceable ang battery ng GS6? Bakit hindi taasan ng Apple ang RAM ng Iphones nila? Bakit hindi pa nagagawa ang perfect smartphone that is suited to every single person on earth?

  8. dpi says:

    So, how well can you optimally utilize the QHD screen?
    Just my two cents.

  9. cK says:

    Are/will all these phones (be) available in the Philippines? Gusto ko sana i-check ‘yung Moto Maxx. Sigh

  10. JohnQuill says:

    Sayang lang ang ganun kataas na screen resolution sa mallit na screen. Marketing ploy lang para palitan mo yun current phone na ok pa naman.

  11. Lloyd Dunamis says:

    Aaahh, too bad all the phones with such high ppi are expensive phones. It can’t be helped though: the higher the resolution, the more pixels to render, the more it needs higher processing power.

    I’d settle for 1920×1080 or at least 1440×900 (have not seen such phone w/o research) under 5.5″ panel display (or in short 300~450ppi), if they weren’t also that much expensive… (Flare X or Zenfone 2 ZE551ML! But I’m still assessing…)

    For the point of PPIs, here are the following I can think of:
    -High-resolution pictures: see more pixels w/o having to zoom! Of course you can still zoom, but.
    -Website Browsing: more space for web content without looking pixel-y when zoomed out too much.
    -smoother, cleaner-looking interface fonts & icons in-general. (and only if app supports it or is ready for large resolution devices, else it’s just upscale)
    -Games: more details drawn in game graphics for, well, more details. (again, if game supports it, else it’s upscale)

    …Oh right. Besides from reso, we still have to consider if it’s IPS or OLED, and other screen technology considerations.
