I have the G3 with the 3k display and I can not discern the pixels with my naked eye. A 5.5" screen at 4k resolution just seems a waste of pixels, battery life and processing power to me.

I thought it was bad when I had to get bifocals to read my phone. Now I’ll need a magnifying glass. Will these things come with a 4K camera? Will they be able to process 4K video? I think not.

The G3 can take 4k video at 30 fps and plays it back smoothly. I just question the usefulness of a 5.5" 4k display. I would rather have the processing power and battery time available for other things than the display. The two advantages I see with the 3k screen is extremely small text is readable and photographs are pin sharp no matter their size.

Magnifying glass? More like a microscope…

I’m looking forward to 8k resolution 3D curved screens on smart-watches, which would be the bare minimum to see what time it is. :cool:

Well… not, really.

Hey, maybe we need 16k touch screens for our washers and dryers. I can’t read anything less… oh wait, yes I can!
