    I dropped my iPhone 5s a few months ago and had to use a LG G3 until I was able to pick up a new iPhone. Now that I have the 6s Plus I'm kinda disappointed by the screen resolution on it. I have this brand new phone with a 1920 x 1080 screen yet I was using this year and a half old phone with a
    2560 x 1440 and to be honest, it is way better. Anyone else a little disappointed with the screens on the new phones?

    Once again NO I'm not disappointed with the screen resolution on the iPhone 6s Plus. I don't get wrapped up in Specs, because it's about real world experiences. The Note5 has 4gb of RAM, but yet compared to the 6sPlus 2gb of RAM it's slower. Just like sports, a team my look good on paper, but it's all how they perform in the "real world"....just my .02

    I think that is a little different. The screen resolution and clarity can directly effect our experiences with our phones. The slowness is definitely one aspect. The iPhones run laps around the new Note devices. But we aren't really talking about specs on paper here. We are talking about a visually superior display that may mean a better video watching experience or a better gaming experience or a better reading experience.

    Am I disappointed? I think disappointed is a strong word. But it definitely wouldn't hurt to have a nicer display. But what we have is plenty good. And if a better display means worse battery life (Which I believe would be a trade off) then I'll stick with the battery.

    Just because a screen has a higher spec numbers concerning resolution doesn't mean it looks better. It's about "real" world colors...NOT artificial .......to ME anyway.

    The 6s Plus screen resolution looks fine to me. I don't need saturated colors to be happy. It's eye candy for sure. But as I've stated before, Android screens reminds me of looking at a portrait on the wall. The iPhone is more like looking out a picture window at the real world.

    I have no issues with my screen - the size, the resolution and the color gamut. No need to be "disappointed", IMO.

    All of these the screens at this point have individual pixels to small for the eye to see at normal viewing distances.

    I'm not disappointed in the resolution by any means. It is pin sharp at normal viewing distances and videos, games, etc. look great. The color reproduction is as good or better than any other panel in the business. eBooks can be read, although it feels a bit cramped at times. I've even done some document editing on it in an emergency. Overall, the resolution is sufficient by my needs

    That being said, would higher resolution be nice? Of course. The 6S+ resolution is phenomenal, and a 1080p in a 4.7" screen would be even better from a resolution standpoint. For my purposes, however, I'll stick to my Air 2 for anything where a big screen is preferable, like reading, watching videos, and preparing documents and TPS reports.

    No. My screen looks fine. I get disappointed with over saturated screens.

    Its the same higher megapixel means a better camera argument. And we all know that isn't true. To OPs defense though the g3 has a great screen.

    Nope, I think the 1080P screen on the 6s+ is fantastic. However I haven't used any other smartphone other than an iPhone since the 3G version...

    This is my first iPhone coming from high end Android devices such as the Note 4 and LG G4. Were the devices amazing to look at? Absolutely. Did the battery suffer because of it? Absolutely. I'd rather have a long screen on time than luscious colors. The color representation on the 6s Plus is just fine for me. I don't notice any pixelation, the blacks are inky, the colors are vibrant, and the battery while the screen is on is outstanding.

    I came to the iPhone 6s from the iPhone 6plus. It is noticeably faster and the screen is every bit as nice as the plus, just a little smaller. Not disappointed with the screen at all.

    You are certainly welcome to your opinion, but so far with my personal 6S Plus and all of the press and reviews, I've seen nothing that corroborates it.

    Exactly what are you seeing that makes you thing the quality is worse or going down?

    Yep. The screen, fit and finish of my 6S Plus are just as good if not even better than prior years. And the internals are screamingly fast. No issues here.

    The resolution on these things is getting to the point where it's so great that even if they up the specs I won't be able to tell with my naked eye. It's like 1080p and 4K to me. I'm content with either.

    I used an lg g3 for about a month and I didn't think the screen was that impressive unless you watched the 2k videos they included on the phone. The screen was too dim (a common lg g3 complaint) and colors were too fake.

    I am not in the least bit disappointed. The screen is gorgeous. Could it be better? Sure, everything can be improved. I prefer the screen on my iPhone, that I can see in full daylight, over the screen on my Note 4 that turns black in direct sunlight, rendering it unusable.

    The G3 has a higher resolution, but washed out colors. The brightness isn't the best either. Now if you said G4 I'd maybe take you seriously. That phone has a nice display.

    I personally love the display. There's more to a screen than resolution.
