I just looked it up and the iPhone 6 does 1080. But you would have to hold it right up to your face to be able to see the full resolution, because the screen is only 5.5 inches. You'd need very sharp eyes! Maybe they could make some sort of goggles that the iPhone drops into that optically makes it seem like the screen is bigger and further away.

I think someone should take the links in the first post, clean out the dead links and repost it. Too many people post to the thread without bothering to read what it is about. It's about controlled test results of audio myths
good one, god!
He's desperate to draw me in. Ain't gonna happen. Tell it to the hand.
