Really cool stuff here by Bryan Jones:
However, looking at higher magnification is where you can really see the difference in images. It turns out that the pixels in the iPhone 5 are *precisely* the same size as the iPhone 4 pixels, but the iPhone 5 pixels have better color saturation with more contrast, seen particularly in the blue pixels. I did not calculate the difference in color saturation between the two iPhones, but it is pretty clear to the eye which is which. Apple claims 44% increase in color saturation and from these images, I believe them.
In the normal image you can still see the quality of the color. I can’t really see the pixels being closer to the screen though. If you have trouble seeing the difference in the color saturation from the normal pic, taking a look at the microscopic, straight on one clears up any doubts as to which screen is better.
