    I'm not supposed to be able to differentiate between individual pixels. It's close, but I can. That sorta sucks

    The retina on the touch is kinda a downgraded version than the one you would see on the iPhone 4

    Can you post an HD video differentiating both the iPod Touch 4G and the iPhone 4 and stating the similarities and differences?

    I have yet to experience Retina Display.

    I only know that the iPod Touch 4G is yellowish.

    I thought that was just the IPS technology.

    How close is your eye?

    Its from a certain distance; you can do it on both the iPhone 4 and the iPt4.

    Its a marketing term; what do you expect?

    I can't sorry. But I have to say that you will never go back to old displays. They hurt to look at after retina.

    Alright. Is it still good even though it's downgraded a bit?

    I can't wait till I see Retina Display in person :3 whether it be on a 4G or iPhone 4.
