I fakin h8 the new youtube design. That must invent some stupid idiot. Such garbage...  :horse: :horse:

I am using a desktop PC, not a freaking tablet! Neither do I need a half meter text line spacing, nor three quarter meter buttons with other total screen space wasting features!  |O

Indeed, using a desktop, especially if it happens to be a design station with a 4K monitor 32 inch or maybe more, makes everything looks funny. Some buttons are 0.2 inch, others are 2 inches. Everything is without delimiting borders but with huge spaces between them, like a stop motion of a normal page in the process of exploding. And with cutting sharp square edges. And everything needs to take half of the screen for no reason, like for retards or something.

Pretty funny.  :-DD
Maybe it is your browser not doing a good job at making the screen scaling work properly. I also have a 4K monitor (a 24-inch Dell P2415Q, but still 4K) but it looked okay to me. I am using Google Chrome browser on macOS Sierra, which treated my 4K monitor as a Retina Display.

Actually your monitor is only 185ppi, FAR below the 300+ppi required to be considered a "retina" display. I still wish I had a couple of them though. Just as long as they've never touched an Apple product. I wouldn't want them to catch anything. :-P

What might a display being used on an Apple product carry? (Speaking of, my workstation is a Hackintosh.) Apple does have the best DPI scaling and software-based SSD cache support among all operating systems.

Speaking of Retina, it is now defined as more than 57.6 pixels per one angular degree from typical viewing distance of the monitor, or about one angular minute per pixel or smaller. For my display it is in the neighborhood of 80+ pixels per angular degree from a typical viewing distance of 50 centimeters.

As technix said, "retina" is dependent on viewing distance. 300+ppi applies for phone viewing distances, which means as close as about 30cm. For a desktop display at normal distance (arms length or more) around 150ppi suffices. Apple's own retina Macs have just over 200ppi.

Other than all Apple products I can't believe I forgot to mention the products I hate more than anything else. Phones that don't have a physical keyboard!  Someone in another thread mentioned how useless tablets are for the same reason. Unfortunately I'm stuck with a touch screen only phone at the moment, and my productivity han been cut by half or more because I have to continuously fix typos that I never made with a physical keyboard. Bluetooth keyboards are NOT a solution. My job requires me to get in and out of a truck many times a day and I can't be lugging around any more hardware.

Whoever decided people didn't need keyboards in their phones anymore must not use a phone.  Sure not everyone needs a keyboard, but there's definitely enough of us out here for them to make a huge profit off of.

I keep forgetting about Blackberry. I almost bought one years ago, but after using someone elses I'm so glad I didn't. I guess I should have been more specific and said Android phone with a physical keyboard.

Because it's Blackberry. Nuff said.

My Samsung Stratosphere with sliding keyboard is the best phone I've ever used. Very slow by todays standards though. All Blackberry Androids have the tiny useless screens. My Stratosphere screen took up almost the entire front of the phone, so was very useable along with its huge keyboard compared to Blackberry.

The Blackberry Priv doesn't have a tiny screen, its decent sized.  By all the specs its a good phone, but BB fubar'ed Android somehow.  It worked great the first 6 months but then I got a big update in March of this year.  Now its always laggy, battery life is as bad as an iphone, etc.  I've had several other androids and none have had the problems the priv has.

Whenever anyone bought a Blackberry I would grit my teeth and wait for the call, 'My computer's crashed!'

They wouldn't connect over USB unless special software was installed on the computer, and that software was flaky as hell.

I hate
- windows 10, seems it self destructs randomly, first on my desktop and now today on my new laptop. My windows xp, vista, 98, 7 & linux work just fine on my computers
- cell phones, everybody expects you to have a smart phone, had an iphone and have an android didn't like them. Used a flip phone for 3 years until it broke and now have another cheap cell phone, always needs charging, and isn't much of a use for me, my land line works better.
-most new popular "music"- not something i want to hear, the new "rap" is the worst.

I've never even heard of that phone, but after a very quick search I actually want to play with one. That screen resolution blows EVERY other phone away! (assuming the specs I read are correct.

Unfair! Sometimes it's boasting to a beat...

I know some people are genuine fans of rap music, and I think the very earliest forms have some technical merit and demonstrate some actual skill, but it's one of those things where I'm going to have to just put the good examples down as "not to my taste" and the bad to "how is that different to a sweary six year old talking along to some music that a real musician made".

Listen to most contemporary rap from a distance, or through a wall, and everything sounds identical. In fairness, the same can also be said about anything recorded by the Smiths or Morrissey, so it's not just rap that attracts my ire in that regard.
Anybody got a syringe I can use to squeeze the magic smoke back into this?

The screen res, the camera res, etc are all top.  When I first got the phone it was great.  But blackberry has been messing up the software ever since.
