    OK… So… We have another 4K flagship coming up… I understand if the battery is 6k and above and if the screen is more than 6 inches, but, otherwise, why do I need a 4K phone if even my monitor and TV are only 2K?

      I agree – no one needs a 4k screen. And more to the point, no one needs the massive battery drain of a 4k screen. Lower the resolution and stick a 5mm-thick massive battery in there instead, then we’ll talk.
