    When i compare the quality of video on a youtube video on an iphone 5 to my lumia 925 mine looks grainy compared to the iphone 5. Why when my lumia has a better pixel density and screen than the iphone 5???

    iPhone has a better display! As far as i have seen, Samsung and SONY also have cool displays. Lumia's will have it one day just like how Surface Pro 3 has an awesome display

    yeah, Laura has a point, if you are using an app, it could be defaulting to a lower resolution version of the video... Henocksandy also has a point, the iphone (ewww) has a higher res screen, and the player/browser there is taking advantage of that.

    1) can be because of the app you are using is using a lower quality streaming..such as 480p or 360p and the same video which you are running on the iPhone is being streamed at 720p...this will make a big difference in quality as you can switch between high quality and low quality options in youtube

    2) iphone uses a retina display which has a better clarity then the one in lumias

    3) App being used in both the devices aren't the same...there may be many other reasons...if you really want to have a closer comparison try using the browser for streaming in both the devices

    Pretty sure Samsung still makes the screens for iPhones along with their processors.

    Make sure the quality setting is actually the same.

    Also, the subpixel layout of the 925 (and other phones like the 930, Galaxy S 4...) is not in the typical RGB stripe layout (it's PenTile) which means it might appear a bit blurrier.
