It lacks so much and between what it lacks, its screen type and size, its length and thickness it leaves so much yarning. As a screen and game player its gorgeous, but everything else....Sony did it again just like PSP and ps3 before it.

anyway for my posts before √ means square root.. Maybe the system's not compatible with symbols like those..

Vita has a resolution of 960x544 on a 5" screen..
(√(960²+544²)):5 we get about 220ppi, much better than the PSP..

> In reply to yeip @ 2012-06-18 17:58 from N9xA - click to readPixel density is dpi(dots per inch) not dpi²(dots per inch square)..

Therefore to count the ppi firstly we should count the number of pixels on the diagonal, then divide it by the screen diagonal length..
480x320 on 4" screen= (√(480²+320²)):4
we get about 144dpi..

Then how about Full HD on a 20" screen??
1920x1080 on 20" screen= (√(1920²+1080²)):20
we get about 110dpi that's less than L5's dpi..

To proove it we could compare a 20" TV with a PSP which has 480x272 on a 4.3"(that's a less dense screen than L5).. The PSP still looks better..

PSP = (√(480²+272²)):4.3
the result is about 128ppi.. still better than a full HD 20" TV.. Try to proove it yourself.. you have a full HD TV right???

Overall the specs are not that bad for a low budget 4-inch Droid, but the resolution is horribly low for this screen size.

Geez get life people, its a budget device!!! If they would add display with bigger res its obvious that price would be higher! How stupid are you to not understand this? They always must "cut something" to reach the price level.

4 columns by 4 rows of 4" screen in my example are 16 numbers of 4" screen with 480 x 320 panels,
please enlighten me further, why are they not of the same density ???

> In reply to [deleted post]Oh God, why?
Let's clarify some stuff here.
480x320 = 153.600 pixels
1920x1080 = 2.073.600 pixels
This means a Full HD screen has 13,5 times the pixels of a 480x320 screen. So if your 'logic' was right, the TV should be 54 (4x13,5) inches big, to have the same pixel density.
Even so, the diagonal measure of the screen is not necessarily proportional to its surface (unless we are talking about two rectangles with fixed proportions).
And the most important of all, you won't be looking at your Full HD TV as close as you will look at your smartphone's screen. 480x320 on a 4'' screen is just awful.

MSM7225A chipset with a single-core 800MHz Cortex A5 processor.

Hummingbird on galaxy S1 with 1GHz Cortex A8.

A8 faster than A5.
