The Megapixel Myth
When it comes to taking digital photos. it doesn’t matter how large the number of pixel, it’s the quality of the lens and the sensor that count.

Also the image quality does not only depend on the number of sensor pixel but also the quality of each pixel displayed. The displayed pixel size changes according to the physical size and properties of the display device.
