PS VITA Screen not as good as Apple Retina Display....WHY???

Forums - Sony Discussion - PS VITA Screen not as good as Apple Retina Display....WHY???

I thought the PSV already was able to beat iphone retina screen, I remember back when it was first announced there was a comparison of screens, processor and graphics chip with the iphone 4 and ipad (2 maybe?) and PSV smoked them all.

Way too lay out iPhone screen specs nicely and just throw Vita specs in a jumbled mix. Yep, you aren't biased. Resolution means very little for gaming. Just means you have to push more pixels from the GPU. Most important is response time and contrast ratio, and OLED wins for both.

And 800:1 contrast ratio? LOL



OLED display is not as good for you as TFT one (which Retina is)? OKAY, keep on buying more overpriced iPhones if it's so good for you, lol

The iphone 4 screen is a 3.5" with 960 x 640 resolution. The PSV screen is 5" with 960 x 544 resolution (less than the iphone 4 resolution). More pixels in a smaller screen size make the Iphone 4 screen sharper. There are also other Android phones out that have the same 960 x 544 resolution in smaller screens (usually 4.3"), which should make them look sharper than the PSV screen. (Atrix, Droid X2, HTC Sensation) Once again more pixels in a smaller screen size.

You don't really notice the difference on such small screens that much. But what you really notice is the vastly superior contrast and response time on OLED screens compared to TFT

The Menus could look more sharp with more resolution, but games not....higher resolution requires more power.

960 x 544 is already a great resolution for protable gaming. You know what resolution Alan Wake and Black Ops on PS3 have?

960x544



Retina display is 960x640....and the resolution of PSVITA is 960x544. It is almost the same.



I think because they wanted it to be at a comprable price range to the 3DS



 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Gaming on: PS4, PC, 3DS. Got a Switch! Mainly to play Smash

the people from gametrailers, shane and the others have said that this screen is the best on the market, i believe them ...

Are they talking about "portable game machines" (PSP, 3ds, etc.) or including smartphones as well?
