    Jig, you're right. I forgot that when I ordered one for each of us - 3 of them for the price of 1 Samsung's dock.

    5.5" 960x540 sounds terrible to me. Just terrible. You get what you pay for with a phone that's selling for $135 on Amazon.

    I think the best phone you can buy under $200 is the Moto G (2014). 5.0" 1280x720 screen, Snapdragon 410, microSD support, respectable build quality and screen quality.

    I know HD screen is important for some people. But I am not one of them. Besides the phone's ppi is higher than the my netbook.

    200 vs 117

    My friend explained that his S3 will not show a full website without having to scroll around. His screen is 1280 x 720. I guess the key is to have the second number at least 768 so it will show a full website height when you put your phone or tablet in landscape.

    I went to our B.H. website with my old Samsung Epic 4g which has a resolution of 800 x 400. It looks like our site now recognizes mobile phones and changes the layout accordingly. Many, if not almost all major websites do that and our B.H. site looked great with a 800 x 400 resolution.

    Of course more and more sites/companies are developing apps for their visitors to use. In cases like Web Sites that change for mobile devices and/or apps - I imagine iRulu V1 resolution would work. My Epic 4g still looks good for these eyes of mine.

    I definitely want a bigger phone at this point. I'm not stuck on a particular manufacturer but I'm at least used to Samsungs. Still, something with a more plain Android experience would be nice.

    I don't understand. Website pages can be as long as the web designer makes them.

    I don't understand it either and it's beyond me. When I tried websites with my Epic 4g vs my S4, even full size websites, everything showed up. But he did say that with the lower resolution on a larger screen will stretch the pixels and make clicking on things maybe a little harder to do so without enlarging the screen.

    However, keep in mind that a netbook is generally used at anywhere from 30cm to 60cm distance from your eyes, while a phone is usually held much closer, 15cm to 20cm from your eyes. At this shorter distance, pixels are much more noticeable. My Galaxy Player 5.0 had a 5", 800x480 screen, which translates to 240 ppi, and IMO this is as low as ppi count should go for a handheld device. Less than this and image will surely appear pixellated.
