Is your Samsung Galaxy S4 screen giving you the scrolling blur and purple/pink inversion treatment? You are not alone

0. phoneArena 02 May 2013, 08:24 posted on

We are experiencing some of those with our own Galaxy S4, and dismissed screen issues with the phone as isolated incident, but we got sent link to a whole XDA thread, then we saw another one, which are now dedicated to various blips with the touted 5" Full HD AMOLED display from Samsung...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

I'm not avoiding the question. It has nothing to do with the article or the discussion.

Ill admit the iPhone 4 had antenna issues, i had one with ATT. The GS3 did have issues with the back cover cracking around the camera. Also i think there was some issues with getting high yields of the blue one for awhile, or something like that. BTW im new here.

But it does have a lot to do with your motivations for posting about fictitious "plagues" of build issues on the GS3. We just don't want any passersby to read your words and mistakenly think you are unbiased or knowledgeable.

Someone also forgot to list these supposed build quality issues that plagued the S3.

despite that, super amoled screen is the best display technology out there, see:

That's one, it only affected one variant of the S3, was a software issue (not build quality). Doesn't sound like plagues.

It has to do with your definition of a build quality issue, and whether you will admit to one an Apple product clearly (and scientifically proven by Anandtech and CR) had. You won't, because your only mission here was to spread lies about the S3.

Cracks in the rear cover? Then clearly bending of the cheap aluminum frame of the iPhone 5 would also make your list of build problems.

Yes clearly. Now what? It's fine for Samsung to have these issues because you can somehow point a flaw of another device?

it's okay for me to beat my kids because my neighbor does the same.

Black clipping was present until the Note 2. I don't know about the S4 though.

Ok so then answer the question. We all know it has nothing to do with the article, YET it is a valid question.

Again or is it that we are biased here?

the S3 did suffer from some build issues, one being the cracking of the back cover around the camera, and if i remember correctly there was an issue with high yields of the blue color or something like that. No phone is perfect though and build issues are just a fact of manufacture, its gonna happen. Its happened with Apple, Samsung, HTC, LG, etc.

That doesn't equate to being "plagued with build quality issues." Yields on the blue back doesn't even count as a build quality issue, so all we have is some cracks in the $5 battery cover.

So, what you're saying is anything that you believe must be true, anything you don't must be false. Got it.

If you read my initial statement in this article, I clearly said it was unacceptable and that Samsung had better come up with a quick fix or a full refund.

Mxy said the S3 was "plagued with build quality issues," but as always had no facts to back it up. Mxy has agenda - to badmouth anything Android or Samsung, and to praise anything Apple. My question about the iPhone 4 antenna issue was simply to expose his hypocrisy to all. IIRC, at the time he denied there was any issue.

I think that regular PhoneArena.com visitors already know how I don't like OLED based displays (at least for today's OLED evolution stage). So this time I even won't bother and won't put any effort to say something related to OLED. ;) :P

Harsh words from someone who's only owned one of the millions of SGSIII's sold. When you've had hundreds of thousands of SGSIII's, then you can make the claim that "there was (sic) no build quality issues." Until then, you have to realize that your single SGSIII doesn't necessarily represent the majority (or even the very small minority of units that do have problems) of SGSIII's out there.

Well no i wouldnt consider it "plagued" with issues, but there were some widespread issues, or at least from all the articles , it did seem that way. Every manufacturer has had some quality control issues though, its just a fact of manufacturing, i dont consider any issue too big a deal long as the company stands up and admits to it and fixes it promptly enough.

Are you forgetting the cracks on the faux metal border? I saw 3 S3s with this issue and phones that couldn't even be droped to the ground because they were attached to an anti-theft system. I found it rather ironic because Samsung fanboys were dissing the One X for production issues and never really look at the phone they had. Every phone has build quality issues be it HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony, Apple and Motorola.

U r just pathetic, w8 for chance to qq on Samsung and like others companys dont have problems with theirs phones releases.
U God Apple have made more billions then Samsung, still have antennagate problem and IP5 with dents on the sides. Worst, Jobs denys the problems and blame peoples holding it wrong. Also u are avoding to answer others questions, coz u have nothing to counter it with.

Well there is at least TWO thing that makes the S4 better than the HTC One. The camera quality and the storage space. At least in my observation.
But then again, who am I to speak for the S4? I LOVE Samsung and have always trusted their products. But I'm also open-minded when it comes to a good phone or bad phone.

I think thats a matter of personal opinion/preference. Not everyone cares for amoled screens, some prefer LCD's for specific reasons and others like amoled for specific reasons, no display is the best, cause not everyone shares that same opinion.
