Default 1440p and upscaling

1440p screens are set to become the next advancement, but could this mean a negative for video consumption?

Most high resolution content is 720p (ie YouTube app) with the exception of local media usually 1080p max. Neither of these would be at native resolution on a 1080p screen, thus introducing upscaling which may affect video quality. To what extent, is dependent on the GPU.

Would just like to hear some opinions as to whether there will be a noticeable degradation in user experience.
Device: LG G2
ROM: CM11
Previous: Exynos S III, Xperia Z

I don't think so, since the size of the screen is too small for you to notice the difference.
