    It's not for free; it's just that other people are paying for it on your behalf.

      either you didn't try to read pdf from nearby 720p screen, or your sight is indeed too limited for a human. but that's not a reason to bash author for pointing out ridiculous resolution choice for 2019

        720x1280 is sufficient for "very sharp" image and text display on a 6 inch smartphone. It's not perfect (human eye has sufficient resolution to see even sharper under certain circumstances), but it is OK for most uses.

          if 1000% markup on flash isn't overpriced then what is?

                It's not ridiculous. The manufacturer is trying to make the phone cheaper, and , as you can see, there are many compalints about the price.

                Using a higher resolution screen would increase the price even more, also putting additional burden on a CPU, which is already on the edge of it's abilities.

                So yes, I'm bashing the author for not being considerate about lower-budget users, instead buying into the overhyped high-resolution screen hysteria. He deserves to be bashed on this occasion.

                  You would get "ugly letters" only if you used a viewer which is so obsolete that it has no support for antialiasing. So, that would be your fault and your stupidity, not the limitation of the screen.

                  Otherwise, fonts look very nice on 720 x 1280 on 6 inch.

                    it wouldn't be a device for gaming, but is it marketed as such?

                      +1 on the low res screen. I was going to get one but then I found out about the 720p screen
                      tried to convince them to use a 1080p one, but unfortunately no change. So unfortunately also no sale
