1080p vs 4K

[link to this post]
Is 1080p really this bad? or is my phone just not that great in the 1080p department? Or is 4k just that good?!

Re: 1080p vs 4K

[re: Seansmit17] [link to this post]
1080p is a very low res for a still image. It is the equivalent of a 2MP digital camera image - that is not considered great these days (in fact my first digital camera in 2000 was a 2MP).

4K is still low-ish at equivalent of 8MP but would be considered reasonable for a digital photo.

Many cameras these days are 16MP+
