This was an isolated case for the platform however, as all other Symbian-based devices had larger displays with lower resolutions. Some older Symbian smartphones, including the Nokia N80 and N90 , featured a 2. The first Android smartphones with the same display - Meizu M9 was launched a few months later in beginning of In October of the same year Galaxy Nexus was announced, which had a display with a better resolution.
Aside from resolution, all generations of iPhone Retina displays receive high ratings for other aspects such as brightness and color accuracy, compared to those of contemporary smartphones, while some Android devices such as the LG G3 have sacrificed screen quality and battery life for high resolution.

Help us improve our answers. Are the answers below sorted in a way that puts the best answer at or near the top? This works fine on Windows 7 with Firefox Glorfindel Anyone know, is there something similar for Chrome? Maybe it got indexed in Google for a frequent search term. AlexanderRechsteiner It actually got linked by Smashing Magazine's Facebook page and was shared around Facebook by quite a few people.
Thanks for accepting my answer! ChristinaArasmoBeymer Yep it can — andrewb. Show 2 more comments. Click the options icon 3 dots at the top right and select the Add device pixel ratio option. You should now see the option on the toolbar. From here you can switch to 1x, 2x, or 3x. When you are testing make sure that you hit the refresh button each time you change the pixel ratio. If you set the ratio to 2x and then set it back to lower then you won't see any changes because the browser will not fetch 1x assets if it has already fetch 2x or higher.

You need to boost up the pixels X2, otherwise you won't be able to visually see which content is Retina-ready and which is not. I did a quick test, and Chrome just made the google. But hey, if this works for people, it means skipping the crazy big UI with the Firefox configuration! Yeah, the point here is not to increase image quality it's impossible, as the physical screen remains with the same pixel density , but to be sure, as a developer without a Retina Mac, that you're still covering all bases.
If you want to run media queries in Chrome, you should do both: zoom and emulate. MichaelMcGinnis I'm unable to emulate and zoom with Chrome, have you been able to? Yeah andrewb, it looks like it needs to be separate tests. When I zoom and then emulate, the images get small again.
Zooming while emulating doesn't affect the image sizes. The way this works will vary so not including sample code. In chrome you can do it by: 1 Open up Chrome Developer Tools and click on the little "gear" icon. It's somewhat similar in current Chrome. Honestly 4K is less of a problem than HDR. It works beautifully. I use each monitor for two apps side by side. So I have 6 open at once. Perfect for productivity.
Some programs I run half-screen left or right half, usually Visual Studio or similar apps and others I run quarter screen, so I can have a lot of windows in front of me at once. I do mostly software development where the extra resolution really comes in handy.
I have been adjusting all necessary apps to be able to see the text clearly. My biggest issue is with all the white that is now on screens. On an extra wide monitor such as mine there are huge amounts of empty white space. It is not a Winsows 10 problem, it is an individual application issue. Microsoft provides the ability to link their global settings in your program. Programmers simply choose to use or not.
End of story. They were both patched within 6 mo of me noticing this. Any application can use Windows DPI and text size settings but many of not most ignore these settings. Games that are designed and marketed for 4k. A good recent example is Death Stranding on PS4 pro. The text in the main interface you see while playing prompts, information etc and menus are all incredibly hard to read but this is literally a game designed for 4k… It was designed for a console as well so the assumption is it was designed to be played in a living room style setting which means you are probably sitting at least 5 feet from the screen.
Even at 65 inches I have to get up and get to about 3 feet of the screen to read it and I have perfect vision. Really what programmers need to start doing is allow the user to modify text size of these things in games and applications.
There are too many different usage scenarios for a one size fits all approach.. It lets you set it how you want. Now we just need developers to take those settings into account. I primarily game on my system and gaming at 4k sounds like a nightmare. For example. I have a RTX Super powering this thing and it still struggles to hit frames. Yeah I see a difference, the screen is nice and sharp. It all depends on your use case. If I was a programmer or looked at words all day then I could see the benefit.
That or you turn down your graphical settings. But how silly is that? So beautiful! And at medium settings! It is interesting that Apple does application scaling seamlessly as opposed to Windows where it is still a major pain all the years after high DPI option first appeared. Those designers allow to set variable widths and heights according to the size of text to display. However, enabling this variance usually messes up any alignment of fields, buttons etc.
More often than not, it is a choice between evils for a developer. Anything with a screen size over 35 inch can be 4K, below that screen size, why bother? Personally, I rather have 2 smaller monitors 22 inch to 24 inch on my desk than one bigger sized monitor that with 4K has similar screen real estate than those 2 monitors.
The division between 2 separate monitors makes you more productive. For all those who say Mac will render 4k seamlessly apparently forget random bugs like Mac going to sleep and not waking up, not detecting the monitor, all the text and icons showing 5x the expected size and more importantly Mac not supporting older apps if they are not for the new OS as for Windows it is backward compatible.
Also an even more important note to the author. This was a complete waste of time for you to write and for me to read. Please venture into more interesting topics. This is why you should go to tech sites for tech news. Display resolution alone is only part of the equation. Display size is just as important. Want to run 4k properly? Also, your apps are the problem, not Windows.
The Windows API allows for proper scaling but since those old apps have not updated their code to take advantage of this new feature, they are the issue. I hate being put in the position of appearing to be a Windows White Knight but non-tech sites like these make it necessary.
I use Office at home 4k and work hd but when i set Outlook font sizes for home monitor Office dragged the settings across to work so it looks worse at work now. My main goal was pixel density and readability benefits similar to the screen on my Surface Pro 4 and the Retina display on my iPhone. I did find it necessary to upgrade to a much, much newer version of Adobe Acrobat for this reason, though.
Message to Microsoft: it just needs to work. Get it done. However, despite these travails, the pixel density and readability improvements are so worth it. My 48 year old eyes really appreciate it. Apple was there years ago with its retina displays, and Microsoft really needs to get serious about catching up, and fast. None of us should tolerate the eyestrain of a low pixel density display.
The resolution and size is exactly 1. Perfect scaling every time. I now have 3 of them. Reasonably priced, too. Wondering what the diff is. Most of our applications are custom written and have raster based graphics with customizable icon and text size for everything but even then our foray into high dpi displays below 0. The article title is misleading. The problem is not with Windows but with applications that do not support high pixel density.
Windows 10 has the necesary APIs for this. The comination of pixel density and screen size also matter for the optimum display experience. Made that transition about 18 months ago. I only ran into one issue. It was not a revenue generator for the company, so they have no plan to update it. Sounds like you need an ultrawide or multimonitor setup. MacOS is just as bad or worse. Get a high DPI display and you will barely be able to read most of the text.
Only Edge has smooth scrolling. I LIKE the real estate with a high-res monitor. No rush there. There is a physical delineation between my workspaces. I have tried the large screens many times before, but I prefer the segmentation that my setup provides. Thanks for doing ghacks, by the way. Long time reader, 1st time commenter. A full Windows 10 reset fixed the 4k scaling issues for me. I believe it was an upgrade to they lastest Windows 10, then reset from boot, the reset in the OS.
Having used 4k monitors for both work and home for almost 4 years now,there really is no excuse not to.. Website scaling is a complete non-issue too as you can just snap a browser to the side of your screen and have it take up half the space. The multi-tasking benefits that comes with 4k monitor s are simply undeniable.
My ti handles them like a champ too, even for high end super-wide gaming. This write-up completely ignores the Windows setting for making fonts larger not related to Display Scaling and the setting to make fuzzy apps clearer on the main display introduced in v I think. Also, most DisplayPort topology issues are due to manufacturer drivers,not Windows itself. If a program does not support, widows will scale it by force.
You can see the difference in sharpness for sure. Is it worth having 4k over QHD even at 32 inch sizes? Not really. Does Win10 handle having 2 monitors of different resolutions and makes connected perfectly? Definitely not. On my very old win7 dual monitor both Full HD set up, I had no problems at all. It even came out of sleep mode more quickly than my much newer more powerful Win10 PC. Most of these problems can be resolved by using an external manifest file and registry key.
Look into preferring external manifests. This would be a registry key that globally turns the ability on, and a generic manifest you can use for all programs by dropping into the same folder as the program executable. The file needs to be named after the program as well. I run a 27 inch p Dell ultrasharp Monitor. At that Resolution the pixel pitch is. To translate that upwards you would need a 40inch monitor to get the same. I had a few apps that looked terrible. I was able to get my old apps to look better, still slightly blurry, by creating a manifest file and making a registry change.
It might help you? Also, I have to reduce the resolution in one of the monitors if I want to play older games. The worst issues I have are when I connect three external monitors to my laptop. You are correct. This is a windows problem. The very few that display poorly get uninstalled.
Tried Fences a while back and it came in so small, bacteria are about all it could fence. Might be OK now. Magnifier which has three modes which can help enlarge small things on the screen. Full Screen Lens Docked. I have had 4K monitor since and never had these problems. Yes windows 10 is garbage to work with 4K but no programs had issues. I only use native res though no scaling. It gets even worse folks. We shall see how it goes. Now osk. I actually prefer the older osk.
Something so basic, yet it alludes the geniuses. That was the only way to see a non-cleartyped text perfectly without distinguishing the pixels. This is also the only monitor that I can use with cleartype activated, but I prefer not. It does not hurt my eyes, it seems like a laser-printed paper.
So I will try win10 now that the win7 support ends. I hope drivers are ready and it works. What causes me daily stress is that it cannot display Extra Large thrumbnails in folders, it simply puts more space between the Large ones. Running Windows 10 pro with all latest updates.
Although it works well, I have noticed, on small fonts on dark backgorunds, a raibow effect on the white fonts. This is most obvious on the Icon Fonts and in fact the icons to have a slight blue cast on white borders. A simialr effect is also present on Firefox tabs and I can also see to a lesser extent on the font which is being used in this text box.
I have tried a few things but nothing appears to fix this. I have the corrent Monitor profile supplied by Samsung. I can include a screen grab of the fonts to show what I mean if someone suggest how to include that here.. But dispate remote desktop probs every 3. Even Outlook has strange font sizes. Visual Studio output windows has small font size. Its a mess. I am thinking about switching back to a Full HD monitor.
Every aspect of windows working with anything else than default display is abysmal. Starting with Windows and ending with their latest browser — Edge based on chrome. Same goes for Windows. So, no 4k is not bleeding edge, or any other bull you need to tell yourself to get through your day. This problem is coming up since Windows 7 and Microsoft simply does not care — there is no money in it.
The scaling issues are horrible. Apps randomly have dialog boxes that are massive, or miniscule. RDP needs a magnifying glass. Parts of MS Office become huge, others go fuzzy. Pasting screenshots between apps makes them either too small or comically large. Plug in or unplug a monitor and Windows loses its mind. Never had this on my Dell laptop.
