Analyst flip-flops about a Retina display in the iPad mini 2

0. phoneArena 19 Jun 2013, 14:21 posted on

Many have been expecting that the iPad mini 2 will be launching later this year with a Retina display, but an analyst from DisplaySearch doesn't think that's going to happen. Instead, NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim thinks that Apple will take more of the iPhone route with the iPad mini releases...

Will apple ever stop being self obsessed with their three year old retina display?

It's still one of the best displays in the game so why stop? Plus it's just the name that they call their displays. No different than Sammy saying Amoled or HTC saying Super LCD IMO.

You said Apple has the best display. And you know what? their display are usually made by LG or Sharp. Credit should be given to LG or Sharp, not to the Apple.

Ok I'll give you that, but the display is synonymous with apple.

True that they are assembled by LG and Sharp but the design was done by Apple. The specs, technology to use, and all of that good stuff was engineered by Apple. They outsourced their design to be assembled by somebody else because it's more cost effective. So while LG and Sharp should be credited for assembling the displays, Apple deserves the credit since they originally designed and engineered the display.

That's true. People get so caught up in specs, they forger about craftsmanship. Apple 1137/640 blows away some of these 720 and 1080 displays. Why? Engineering...

It may blows away some of the displays but not all of the displays.
HTC One X had the best display (last year). It was praised by almost every website.

I think Software tweaks and optimization matters.
Sony has the best software software customization, Bravia engine is a really cool stuff though but it still lacks.

Same thing goes with their cameras, Sony and IPhone uses the same cameras but I still give credits to Apple for their better customization.
Last year's i5 beats all the last year flagships in camera.

I agree with you on software tweaks, and optimization. It does make a difference in the end.

I don't know man, the S-LCD3 on the One and DNA are pretty amazing, and also calibrated to perfection (or pretty damn close).

Agreed with you. I am waiting for Sony Triluminous display, I think it would be surprising.

Yeah, but AMOLED isn't good for out door use, because they don't get bright enough. Also you need to dig into the settings just to get accurate colors.

Yeah this is the reason I prefer LCD.
iPhones and HTC have the best displays so far.
LG is picking up the pace too.

True my note is kinda dim out side, auto brightness helps some though.

@dumbjediiiiiiii you mean the display that Sharp and LG make for them? apple doesn't make anything themselves, except perhaps the next-gen mac pros, though I'm not sure which factory in the US those are supposed to be made in, so might be subcontracted out anyway.

Um, yeah, no, not at all. AMOLED is a screen technology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMOLED), short for active-matrix organic light-emitting diode. LCD and its iterations like Super LCD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_LCD) are liquid-crystal displays with LED backlighting, which is what the "Retina" display is.

So, you're wrong, and your argument is invalid.

Research before posting :D

How so? I just think its overall the best display. Not bring a fanboy, cuz I have my complaints, and you know I do. Specs aside, just looking at the pure beauty and clarity of the display...name one that's actually better. Several are just as good, but name one that's hands down better. Take screen size and specs out of the equation, just look at beauty.

since when having 'accurate' colours means the perfect screen? Isnt deep black and power saver a positive to?

Did you know DisplayMate rated the S4 amoled screen as one of the best screen out there, with having more accurate colours than the HTC ONE or Sony Z?

Amoled is still good for outdoors, I mean you can still read texts easily if you set it to auto brightness or set the brightness higher or maybe my eyes is just too good?
