Anyone wish the screen res was just a bit more?

The EVO looks like a sweet phone, and if they ever bring it to Verizon with some LTE love, I'll probably buy one, but does anyone wish that they increased the resolution of the screen just a little to take advantage of that big 4.3" display? Maybe the next gen will. All in all, it looks like a great device, but I don't think it's going to save Sprint from still loosing customers.

Sprint's fine.

The resolution is actually a big selling point for me. I don't have great vision (and am not getting any younger) and most devices are waaaaay too high resolution now.

Monitor (Samsung 2343BW) = 2048x1152 @ 23" = 102.16 PPI
Laptop (Sony VAIO) = 1600x900 @ 13.1" = 140.13 PPI
HTC Evo 4G = 480x800 @ 4.3" = 216.97 PPI
HTC Droid = 854x480 @ 3.7" = 264.77 PPI

Now I look at my laptop a bit closer than my monitor, and my phone even closer, but 265 DPI means pixels are less than a tenth of a millimeter apart on the Droid.

I'm very happy to be getting a phone with lower DPI. More pixels don't really help if you can't see them clearly.
