About this spreadsheet
4
This spreadsheet will tell you the PPI of any screen you are interested in alongside the maximum PPI you are able to physically see.
5
This will let you know if a higher resolution screen is worth it for you or if you would not be able to see a difference
6
Light Blue cells are where you should enter your own data
7
Anything in orange text is simply an automatic calculation that needs to be performed
8
The Green cells tell you the PPI and pixel pitch of the screen and what you can actually see based on the entered data
