The Android devices present today mostly feature a Quad HD display – the displays offering the resolution of 2560×1440. Comparatively, the iPhone 6S only features a resolution of 1334×750 though the iPhone 6S Plus comes with a resolution of 1920×1080.
However, there are good financial and technical reasons for Apple to stick to the low resolutions than its rivals. From a technical point of view, the higher resolution displays actually consume more battery than the lower ones which leads to low power.
From a financial point of view, it is more difficult to build higher-resolution displays which ultimately leads to increased building costs and low-profit scales. Taken under consideration he huge amounts of iPhones that Apple delivers every year, Apple needs to make sure that the phones’ components are manufactured at low prices in high volumes so to avoid the risk of supply suffering and margins.
In all the third party reviews about the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, the experts have criticized the relatively low resolution of the phones as compared to the top Android manufacturers as a negative.
When you opt for an Android device, for example, an LG smartphone; you will come to know that the phone is cheaper as compared to the iPhones but still offer better resolution and other stuff. This should be taken seriously in the Apple compound as many of the Apple users are Apple users mainly because they have never tried an Android smartphone and Apple has the capability to outshine if it believes in doing so.
Though we all believe that Apple will be moving to better resolutions with the release of iPhone 7 display and 7 Plus display and a quick guess can be around 1920×1080 panel which will be further enhanced with the iPhone 7 Plus set. But nailing such a resolution will be a challenge for the engineering team.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are speculated to be significantly thinner as compared to the releases this year, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus which implies that the tech giant will probably not have a great chance to enhance the battery capabilities of the new devices.
