AnandTech: The Pixel Density Race and Its Technical Merits

Joshua Ho:

While 1440p will undoubtedly make sense for certain cases, it seems hard to justify such a high resolution within the confines of a phone, and that’s before 4K displays come into the equation. While no one can really say that reaching 600 PPI is purely for the sake of marketing, going any further is almost guaranteed to be for marketing purposes.

A few readers have pointed out the similarities to the megapixel race in the camera industry, which has thankfully subsided. Only up to a certain point is higher pixel density definitely better.
