This screen must be patented quickly by Samsung, LG, or any Asian companies, don't let Apple secure it!

im pretty sure its already patented by Hitatchi. Samsung displays are already beyond this, and who knows what LG is up to. No worries.

Even so, it's nice to see a non-PenTile matrix tech have this capability.

I'm not all that up on screen tech.. how is Sammy beyond this?
I could have misread.. but I thought Sammy's method for 1280x720 resolution was via pentile.. this seems superior to pentile in every way.
Add to that, more effecient, and it sure sounds like a winner!
So.. how is the Samsung display tech for 4.5" screens better?

This is partly subjective, but AMOLED generally has brighter colors (not necessarily natural-looking, but brighter), higher contrast (deeper blacks) and lower power consumption than comparable LCD screens. In another year or so they won't need PenTile anymore, but for now it's a tossup.

So the Nexus Prime, Galaxy Note, etc are all pentile?? That sucks. :(

Yeah, the Nexus Prime/Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy Note are Super AMOLED HD, which resorts to PenTile matrix. They won’t be as pixel dense as Super AMOLED Plus would be at the same resolution and therefore not as sharp.
But the Galaxy Note article may be correct in stating that the naked eye cannot discern the difference at this resolution:
Super AMOLED Plus versus Super AMOLED:

Yea it makes you wonder in the end if its worth the high resolution. I know a lot of people who despise pentile displays. I personally don't think they are THAT bad but it can be annoying however.

Could someone explain the differences please? D Why is Pentile so bad?:

No one was talking about pixel density until Apple started talking about it. Love it! :)

It's okay if the screen is 500 nits and above as long as the battery can be used up to 3 days...
