The unlocked iPhone 4 Retina display might be the phones most defining feature. The difference in screen quality is noticeable from previous versions of the iPhone. Apple has been quoted as saying that the pixel density of the Retina Display is so high, that the human eye is not capable of being able to spot individual pixels. This gives every screen that you see on the iPhone 4 a very realistic and beautiful look.
Nothing like the Retina Display has ever been offered before. The pixels are a total of 78 micrometers wide, which allowed Apple developers to pack four times as many pixels onto the same size of screen. The iPhone 4 Retina display provides an amazing 326 pixels per inch, which makes text look clear even when you are zoomed out in your browser. Nearly everything on the iPhone 4 has a crystal clear look to it.
Excellent for Movies and Videos
With the Netflix app allowing you to stream movies right onto your iPhone 4, the Retina display delivers them at quality that you have never before seen on a phone. This, combined with the fact that the iPhone 4 Retina Display employs the in-plane switching technology, which makes the screen look bright and vibrant from any angle. The Retina Display is also said to provide a contrast ratio that is four times that of previous models.
Did you know that the display glass from the iPhone 4 is actually made out of the same material that is used to make helicopters and trains? The glass on the iPhone 4 was specifically designed to be resistant to scratches and more durable than any previous iPhone screen in the history of the phone. On the outside of the screen is an oil-resistant coating that was put in place to make sure that the screen of the iPhone 4 unlocked handset remains clean throughout its use.
All in all the Retina display provides you with an experience that has never before been seen on a phone. It is the brightest, most brilliant screen of any phone to date, giving every video, image and website a crisp look that can only be matched by high quality computer monitors and television sets. Never before has a phone screen been one of the main selling points of the phone itself. Whereas most screens are simply the plane in which you view the features of any given phone, the iPhone 4 Retina display is a feature within itself.
