Default Full HD on Phones?

Hi anybody

Some new phones come with a full hd ~5" display. My 42" television has also the same resolution
What are the benefit from full hd to xlarge (960dp x 720dp) ?

Cheers, Marc

It's all about the distance from the screen to your eyes.

Smaller the pixel, sharper the image.

As isajoo said, it makes pictures more crisp. Also a 5inch phone held 50cm away will look as big as a 42inch TV which is sitting across the room.

Pretty much the quality of the picture and how close to real it seems.

720p on my 4.5" Moto G looks fantastic, so it all depends on your screen size. I bet 720 would look good on a 5" screen also.
