LCD resolution of the Leica X1

The rear LCD screen of the Leica X1 has a resolution of 230,000 dots and measures 2.7 inches across its diagonal. A high-resolution display offers a clearer and crisper user experience than a lower pixel screen, notably during image review. While the physical size of the LCD is naturally limited by the space that is available on the back of the camera, the resolution of the rear screen has continued to increase over time, with new camera models often featuring nicer rear panels as one of the key arguments for a camera upgrade.

One convenient feature of the X1 is the presence of an on-board flash. While this built-in flash is not very powerful, it can at times be useful as a fill-in light to brighten deep shadow areas.
