Galaxy S6 edge put under the microscope, reveals Diamond Pixels display matrix

Galaxy S6 edge put under the microscope, reveals Diamond Pixels display matrix
Ever wondered if the unique side-sloping Galaxy S6 edge display still sports Samsung's Diamond Pixels matrix arrangement? This offshoot of the PenTile matrix has been used by Samsung to achieve the ever-higher resolutions of its Super AMOLED displays before, after all, most recently in the Quad HD panel of the Note 4.

Well, now you can answer this pressing question straight from the source, as the S6 edge display has been put under the microscope, along with its two cameras, the adjacent LED flash and biometric sensor combo, the volume button, and the SIM card slot. 

As you can clearly see from the microscopic dive into the 5.1" QHD S6 edge screen, it indeed uses the Diamond Pixels arrangement to achieve that record high pixel density, but here the light-emitting diodes are layered on a plastic, instead of a glass substrate, allowing Samsung to bend it from both sides, and wrap the phone's edges in living, breathing, glowing pixels. Pretty fascinating, take a look at all the tiny details below.

Closer look. The sharpness is equal to LG G4 and far far ahead HTC M9.

But just look at photo 1: the 9 on the screen. Pretty hideous and blocky if you ask me.

Pretty sure that's the JPEG compression showing through.

maybe the font looks like that big. Or maybe it wasn't drawn properly.

On top of that, the image is scaled. The 6 edge screen is 1600pix wide. At a 1:1 display size the image should be much larger.

I'm not surprised. They are just continuing what they already know people will like. My wife has the S6 Edge and the display is stunning to the naked eye.

Pentile arrangement is a cheap, disgusting cost saving measurement that can harm people's eye sight.

Retina display is just a rebranded LG display.
It's also inferior to Samsung's AMOLEDs based on DisplayMate's analysis.

Except the diamond displays on Samsung flagship. More accurate, sharper, better contrast, better white point. All proven by scientific testing.

Speaking of color, your tuchis is glowing in the infrared.

S6 white looks like a very non-uniform greenish mess.

So PA, how do you explain that other than it's being pentile?

Side by side, my Note and iPhone look the same.

No offense sir, but my friends who aren't even into tech can really see the difference between the Note 4 and iPhone 6's display.
Not sure about the 6 Plus though.

The S6 white has been measured at very close to the 6500k reference standard, one of the best white points on a phone.
