But the physical display is exactly 4" Just a 96 x 480 strip has been painted over above the last 96 pixels So yes: 3.4" of 480 x 800 of useful space.
But 4" of 480 x 992!
The software soft buttons are the first thing I'm looking to change. I'm working on an idea to change the button order and appearance. Also a way to remove, lock or add more buttons.
I'd like to make it so when I'm in a call. The buttons change to call buttons even with the screen blacked out.
Ooooh! Or maybe make the buttons become notification lights when the phone is in standby because the damn grip sensor is useless when you have a case on the phone!!! Two birds with one stone!
Ticker interim fix: Make the camera button a quick press to activate ticker, long press to activate camera...
