Battery life w/iPhone 5 wifi hotspot

I have a long train commute and try to minimize battery usage on the phone. Battery is no problem on the ipad and I usually connect the ipad to the phone wifi.

Purple Lens issues- IPhone 5

Maintain Retna Display designation

At the current size, the 3.5 inch screen of the iPhone 4/4S is 329 PPI.

However, Retna Display designation is not a set number, rather it is the relative point by which one cannot differentiate one pixel from another. With a larger screen, one would hold it slightly farther away, so we can allow the PPI to decrease slightly with no ill affects on our designation or apparent screen quality.

All these criteria can be met by simply making the screen no larger than 4.3 inches, and increasing the resolution from 9...
