Pixel density matters a lot if not enough power is provided to handle the extra load. Take Samsung's method for handling its screens: they are always pushing for insanely high resolutions, yet their chips aren't fast enough to cope with it.

Yes the screen size matters. Pushing more pixels. The renob who says this is unacceptable is a moron. What did you want them to do, artificially slow down the imand 8 plus?

No moron, they could have figured out a way of making the X faster not slower than their lower end phones!

@Johny - You tech-illiterate buffoon, why do you comment when you clearly have no clue of what you are talking about?!?
