Screen Resolution

February 23, 2023

Screen resolution refers to the number of pixels on a screen horizontally and vertically. It is typically measured in pixels (px) and is expressed as the number of pixels horizontally by the number of pixels vertically, such as 1920×1080. The higher the number of pixels, the higher the screen resolution and the more detailed the image will appear.

Common screen resolutions include:

  • 1920×1080 (1080p or Full HD)
  • 1280×720 (720p or HD)
  • 1366×768
  • 1600×900
  • 2560×1440 (1440p or QHD)
  • 3840×2160 (4K or UHD)

The most common screen resolution for desktop monitors is 1920×1080 (1080p), while the most common resolution for mobile devices is 1280×720 (720p).

Screen resolution is important because it affects the size and clarity of the images and text displayed on a screen. A higher resolution means that images will be sharper, while a lower resolution will result in images that are less detailed and may appear pixelated. It’s also important to consider the screen resolution when designing a website, as it will affect how it is displayed on different devices and screens.
