If a screen has the same resolution as another (HxV), but one screen is physically larger than the other, then the larger screen will be easier to read. It's bigger pixels.
But more than that, and while I do not have an iPhone, I believe that the iPhone has methods to enlarge the display ("zoom" if you will) by simply "un-pinching" the screen.
un-pinch? think of it as placing your finger tips on the screen and dragging your fingertips outward to expand the two-point selected area (the opposite of a "pinch" to shrink the selected area).
Try it out. See if that works for you.
I recently switched (4 days ago)from T-Mobile to ATT. I was looking for a smart phone and the G1 just didn't appeal to me that much, so I
went with the Blackberry Bold.
While it is a great phone I'm not using it for any biz applications (I do appreciate it's e-mail functionality) or texting.
I do need the phone for GPS as well as for WiFi and the web.
However, because I'm far sighted/old (can't see well close-up) the print on the maps is almost unreadable...while the Bold's screen is super sharp while browsing web pages I have to constantly increase the text size and end up scrolling EACH line of the page sideways.
My question is, if getting an iPhone with it's larger screen (3.5") but with the same Display Resolution (480x320)as the Bold, will help me out?
Thanks for any response.
