1080p, 720p, HD, 4K. We hear them all the time. And when we need to record iPhone screen video, we are also recommended to capture iPhone screen in HD format. But wait, what’s 1080p HD? And what’s the difference between 1080p and 720p? This post will give you the answers and introduce you the best 1080p HD screen recorder for iPhone X, 8/8 Plus, 7/7 Plus, 6/6s/6s Plus and more.
720p and 1080p are different versions of HD. High Definition, HD in short, refers to the number of pixels displayed on a screen. Here p stands for progressive scan, as opposed to interlaced scan.
1080p: By 1080p, it means that there are 1920 pixels on the screen horizontally and 1080 pixels down the screen vertically. Therefore, 1080p = 1920 x 1080, which is usually known as FHD or “Full HD” resolution. With more pixels, 1080p video is supposed to provide more details and thus higher quality of image.
720p: 720p is often referred as HD or “HD Ready” resolution, describing that there are 720 vertical pixels and 1280 horizontal pixels and thus the screen resolution is 1280x720.
As we can see, the main difference between 720p and 1080p is the number of pixels. Since 1080p is made up of more pixels, 1080p is likely to provide clearer and more detailed image. Therefore, to get a high-quality screen video of your iPhone, you need a 1080 HD screen recorder.
