Android smartphones ranked by pixels per inch

It used to be a battle of Megapixels between smartphones to showcase their superiority in the market, but now that has moved over to Pixels Per Inch (PPI), manufactures are now looking at ways of packing more pixels into their displays.

PPI contributes to many factors, but most significantly it is how sharp and crisp the display looks. There is a certain amount of pixels per inch that the human eye can distinguish and this varies given the size of the display, and achieving a higher PPI count means users aren’t able to see those individual pixels during normal operating conditions.

We’ve taken the latest smartphones available on the market and ranked them in order of their PPI count to give an idea who is winning the battle of pixels.
