all i can say...Boring to the max..no impact at all.only diehard htc will appreciate this update
Fefo, 23 Dec 2014not in samoled displaysYeah, that is true. SAMOLED is not a battery drainer for QHD. But that still does not solve the problem of CPU/GPU and associated stutters (if not lags). So truth be told, smartphone technology is not yet ready for QHD. Simple as that.
"but sadly the leaked specs state that it will be of the FullHD instead of the QHD" that is NOT sadly at all... name just one argument why it is drawback or shut up... cuz news feeds like this will foce manufacturers to try 5K very soon in phones :'( and that is sadly - cuz my Resources are wasted on useles features
Best move from htc..
FHD is far better than qhd that mean less battery drain, no lag in use, more than enogh for 5inch phone..
i love htc for such do like this intellegent move not only for higher numbers on the paper but better performance and better exparience in use.
FHD + Snapdragon 810 = Beast!
Thank gosh, HTC decided to go with FHD.
"and a reasonably big 2,840mAh battery". You gotta be joking. Right??
great news for the full HD. 441 PPI is still more than enough as in more more than enough
Based on dimensions, HTC will retain the useless bar with logo and on-screen buttons.
If HTC releases next flagship with FHD instead of UHD they'll surely havr uper hand over S6 which is veru likey to have UHD screen. FHD for 5 inch phone is just perfect. Yes there is scope of improvement in m8's screen but it definitely isn't resolution.
I can't wait for this one! :D
I'm happy for FHD. QHD is a battery drain and I don't notice any difference with display quality.
You are absolutely right my HTC one m7 only has a Full HD screen and yet most of the time I feel that the content on the internet is still not on bar .
"...but sadly the leaked specs state that it will be of the FullHD instead of the QHD variety..."
Looks like the author was high when writing this.
FHD for the win
Hey gsmarena don't point at FHD as "Sadly" we don't need unnecessary technology that would be a downfall for our daily usage
QHD on a 5 inch screen won't bring that much on to the table over FHD. What it will do is reduce battery life, cause stutter in games and it'll also cause phone to heat up more! All of this over having a sharper screen which isn't noticeable to the naked eye! This is a smart move on HTC's part if you ask me.
