    Hells no, it's just another scam to make gullible fools part with their hard earned cash.

    to be honest I was happy with 720p, going from a nexus 4 to a nexus 5 the screen looks marginally better but it was in no way a deal maker, the only perk is HD films now look a bit better and the resolution of the video matches the screen, but how many people really watch HD films on their phones? going even further just seems to be doing it for the sake of it or for bragging rights and cheap sales. Like a few have said I'd much rather they stay at 1080p and focus on improving the battery consumption of the chips powering the display and the displays themselves.

    Any phone with a PPI of 330 or over is more than sufficient as most people will not be able to see any pixels making it crystal clear. We're spoilt with mobile displays these days, there are some really great ones but to put things into perspective, how many people have a TV with a display resolution over 1080p?

    4K on smartphone pointless. TV and gaming on consoles is the way.
