iPhone 4 vs iPhone 3GS Screen

There’s been quite a bit of controversy about the now infamous iPhone 4 retina display. In short, Apple makes some claims about the new display that are disputed by industry experts.

Like Patrick Beja says, the claims and controversy doesn’t really matters in the end. What really matters is to know whether the new iPhone 4 screen is better than the iPhone 3GS or not.

To put an end to the debate, Scoble posted pictures of both displays. You be the judge. I think it’s pretty clear and obvious that the iPhone 4 has a better screen, but that’s not really surprising. After all, the iPhone 4 is a newer device and I can’t see why the screen display wouldn’t be as good or even better than the iPhone 3GS’.

Your thoughts?

    Maybe I’m crazy, but is it even possible for me to see how good it really is when I’m looking at these pictures on my 160ppi iPhone screen?

    Well that closeup shot obviously shows improvement even if we can’t see the exact image the iPhone 4 will display. The question is, is it really better, and the pictures speak for themselves as “obviously”. The human eye can’t even see the ppi that is on the new display, so there will be nobody that can even make a “better” screen anyways as the human eyes are limited. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these bad boys. 10 more days!

  • That’s a really simple way of showing off the improved screen resolution. I’m all for the new iPhone 4!
