The pixel density of the iPhone 6+ is 401ppi.

The pixel density of your 15.4" MacBook Pro is 220ppi.

The pixel density of your LG Ultrawide 34inch display is 109ppi.

The pixel density of a 27" iMac non-retina display is 102ppi.

The iPhone Simulator maps one simulated device pixel to one screen 
pixel, so the net effect you will get on (say) a 27" iMac is that of 

The lower the ppi, the less sharp things will appear :)
