  • miralami
    miralami 1 month ago @Bonez0r but not worth it lol, 4k phones are predicted about $1000 i mean wtf i could get a 4k low budget pc with that money
  • Bonez0r
    Bonez0r 1 month ago (edited) @miralami 4K on a phone isn't useless. Why do apps use temporal AA for example? Because without it you would still see jaggies in 1080p. With 4K that wouldn't be necessary. But never mind all that, what I really want is a pc monitor with amoled, 4K, 144Hz and freesync.
  • miralami
    miralami 1 month ago @X Fade he means, 4k in a phone is completely useless, we can't see the difference too big compared to a monitor/tv, the sweet spot of res on phone is 1080p, nothing else is worth it
  • X Fade
    X Fade 1 month ago @Kacpa2 Can you rewrite that sentence again ?
  • Kacpa2
    Kacpa2 1 month ago What manufacturers should focus on is best specs for colour accuracy,microLed/Oled without burn in for perfect blacks and colour without anybacklighting. Because it's something youbcan actually see and benefit from unlile retarded push for 8K on TV smaller than 100" size
  • Kacpa2
    Kacpa2 1 month ago (edited) @winterhell  Thing is that its retarded. You it has no benefit. You cant see pixels on modern phones unless you press your face agaist them and same is the case for all TV in 4K. Thats not how you are fucking using your tv. And with monitors? 8K is pointless af on them. Only application is gigantic displays for convetions which people will walk close and nothing else...
