iPhone XR Has The Same Display Pixel Density As iPhone 4, But Does It Really Suck?

Unbox Therapy, the top tech YouTube channel recently pointed out that the upcoming iPhone XR's screen has the same pixel density as the iPhone 4, which is 326ppi. According to Apple, it did say that the iPhone XR has embraced the so-called Liquid Retina HD display with a pixel density of 326ppi, some think it sucks. However, there are a few things to note:


Firstly, each non-Plus model has a 326ppi screen, including the old school iPhone 4 to iPhone 8. Therefore, Unbox Therapy believes that Apple deliberately made the resolution worse on the iPhone XR to avoid it affects the sale of its high-end OLED models. Sure, this argument may be justified, but for most users, the difference in pixel density is not the main focus of their concerns.

So, is pixel density really matter in the everyday use of the iPhone? The YouTuber said in a video that it is tough to notice the difference in pixel density between the two devices at normal view distances. In other words, higher in pixel densities do not have a significant impact on the viewing experience of this display specifically made for iPhone XR. Apple itself touted out that iPhone XR display is the most advanced LCD in the industry, plus it supports True Tone and better in color accuracy.

Apple hopes that iPhone XR will be competitive in the mid-end market. though many Android phones out there have high-resolution displays, this indicates higher costs and higher power consumption. What I am saying is that the lower resolution of the iPhone XR means it will have better battery life. In fact, the iPhone XR has an even larger battery capacity, compared to iPhone XS

In general, the iPhone XR has a display that should be featured in a mid-range smartphone. It is the best successor to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and most users won't notice the difference in pixel density. Of course, part of the iPhone XR's competitiveness comes from its price. Considering the solid mobile operating system it and the powerful smartphone processor it includes, Android phones may not stand its top places in the long run, but rather gives the iPhone XR.
