Video: Is VGA Resolution Just a Novelty?


I’ve been wanting to this comparison for a while now, but in order for it to be a fair comparison, I wanted both devices in the test to share the same screen size. Recently I procured an E-TEN Glofiish X800 (which has a 2.8″ 480×640 VGA screen), making it a good device to compare to the E-TEN Glofiish X500 (which has a more standard 2.8″ 240×320 QVGA screen).

As you can see in the video, the VGA screen may be considered a novelty by some unless you do a lot of internet browsing or map viewing on your device.

Do you crave VGA (or greater), or does QVGA do it for you?
