Screen resolution, also known as display resolution, refers to the number of pixels that screens can display both vertically and horizontally.
The images of display models like smartphones, tablets, digital televisions and computer monitors are made of thousands of pixels (px).
The more pixels the screen has, the more information users can see with less scrolling.
Companies that produce display models, write the pixels of their devices in the form of 1,366 x 786px.
For instance, the screen resolution of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is 1440 x 3120px whereas iPhone 11 comes with a resolution of 1792 x 828px.
What’s interesting about this topic, is that different devices with different screens can still have the same resolution.
You can get both a 21" computer monitor and a 15" laptop with the same resolution of 1,366 x 786 pixels. And even if, in this case, your laptop screen would be smaller, it would still fit everything that your computer could.
When browsing the web for “What is my screen resolution” or when checking it manually, you may encounter the following terms:
Low resolution: Low-resolution screens have fewer pixels
High resolution: High-resolution screens have more pixels
Smart resolution: This is a recommended resolution that saves power
The main difference between low and high resolution is in that high-resolution screens can show more of what needs to be displayed without having to do much scrolling.
However, it also means that the text, images and icons presented on high-resolution screens will be sharper as well
According to StatCounter, the most popular screen resolutions between March 2019 and March 2020 were:
What Is Monitor Or Screen Size?
Monitor or screen size refers to the physical size of display models or the area where videos and images can be presented.
This size is measured by a diagonal distance or space between opposite corners, most often by using inches.
We should not confuse display size with a display resolution because these two dimensions are quite different. The former is only a physical measurement of a screen, while the latter is the number of pixels the screen consists of.
