    I am hoping the Passport will be more media friendly than the Q10 with its larger screen size and resolution. I am just trying to figure out how good video playback will be on the Passport. Will it be comparable to the iPhone 5S with its 4" screen?

    It'll be a 1:1 ratio soooo No matter what angle you put it'll look the same on the passport

    Not exactly.

    Bear in mind that with 1440x1440, you can letterbox an image down to 1080 16:9, either vertically or horizontally.

    I know that. The landscape mode was referring to the iphone 5S.

    Passport is a 4.5 " screen? If that's correct it will have 3.2" length for the "16" of the 16:9 screen in letterbox mode.

    I'm not certain of the iPhone spec, but a 4" screen in 16:9 ratio would approximately be 3.5" on the "16" side. So the letterbox experience would be slightly smaller on the passport by 0.32"

    However the pixel density would be much higher, allowing you to hold it closer to your face

    I don't believe the device is really intended for movie aspect ratios. 80s tv reruns will look great though.

    This is one of my biggest issues with the 1:1 aspect ratio. Its basically worthless for watching videos.

    Like the poster mentioned above it works out to about 3.18" for the longer side of the video. Which is 0.32" shorter than the iphone 5/5s

    If you had a zoom ability to make it the identical size of the iPhone screen... you would only loose 5% of the image from each side.
