No.. its a reason NOT to buy it,
since such device would run remarkably slower then a 720/1080p device.
Since 400PPI+ is useless, I like to have more performance instead

Humans can even see each pixel at 16K given the right display size and distance. That's the key here, combination of size and viewing distance to decide necessary pixel count.

And no, there's no point in having anymore than 1080p at 5.5" unless you for some reason want to hold it closer than 9" (23cm) from you eyes. Not comfortable at all.

Human eye = 576 megapixel. so one day we can find 576 megapixel display. may be we will die before this.

Just a marketing gimmick. The pixel density is just no more than 350ppi, cause human eyes can't detect anything above true 350 ppi. the problem with smartphones nowadays they are just overboasting their spec. samsung television has the true full hd resolution as the smartpohones not. Only stupid ppl like you guys believe it is fullhd. try opening blu ray source on samsung phones n tv see how demolished the display are on phones. By logical anything smaller with the same fullhd should become ultra2 super fulhd on a smaller screen, why it is worse!! stupid folks

Totally useless. Full HD is just enough for most 5 to 7" screens and even full HD puts strain on GPU resulting in battery draining. 2K will completely kill the battery life. Hell, it's pretty hard to differentiate between HD and Full HD on 5 to 6 inch screens. Bad idea for a 5 to 6 inch screen. Since these smartphones come, battery innovation has died. Give us 8000 Mah battery powered phone instead on these stupid things.

Even my pc monitor is still 1080p for many years now. Lol. Do we really need such higher resolution in small screen devices? Cant even distinguish HD to full HD in small screen.

If Samsung puts a 2k display on a smartphone then it'll be innovative but Vivo did it hence people are calling it useless....
Change your mindset guys there are many brands which are better & innovative than Samsung...
People now-a-days only like what Samsung does
