%40 less power means %40 much battery power ;)

No. The screen isn't the only thing using the battery, guy.

Very impressive efficiency and brightness
However, My brother has a Xperia P, it has a 700 nits IPS WhiteMagic display, it has an issue where at 80% brightness or higher it looks very washed out and looks like it a white filter over the screen
But then again, I guess with a 1000 nit display you could probably see it almost any conditions at only 50% brightness
And the Xperia P is from 2012, so their WhiteMagic tech would defiantly have improved since

Sounds better than AMOLED! And this is why I buy Japanese phones

after watching LG G3 impresion by MKBHD i think this screen technology is more welcomed than having QHD display while most Android apps still limited to full HD.

if I remember correctly, Sony's Whitemagic displays all had horrible problems a while back, where the extra white pixels completely washed out colors and ruined color accuracy, hope they've sorted those issues out. :)

i thinks it is imposible to solve it if using same method
since lcd(or so called led lcd) has a back lightning,means all pixel colour are always "Bright"(even black colour) and the white pixel just produce only white colour,and means the white colour always "Bright",and colour saturation on lcd/led is just well saturated(most just about 100% gamut),so when the screen too bright,will decrease colour saturation and will causing the colour look washout
also the lcd/led display 's pixel is cannot "turn off" themselve like what OLED display can, so i think it is impossible to solve this issue if the panel is LCD/LED
and this kind of technology, i thinks it only useful for OLED display,
since oled display colour saturation is oversaturated(if without some tweak),
and the white pixel's brightness can reduce the saturation,make the colour more natural and make the display bright(dim also the oled display weakness)
i hope you understand my broken english,if i am wrong feel free to correct me :D

1800:1 :O!!! Have we ever had anything like this on any mobile LCD before? It's awesome.

Nice. I'm waiting SONY Xperia Ultra Z2 (second generation) with such type of screen. :-)

awwww hell yeah!! now battery life is really gonna kick it for the next flagships :D

no screen that's without fake color + green tint on human face can claim its the best
Sony, you fail this time

I'm always a bit of a skeptic when it comes things like this.....
I'd rather wait and witness if these can actually deliver
Have you ever got blown away by
25. refillable (Posts: 641; Member since: 10 Mar 2014)
Yep, Retina Display, Face recognition lockscreen, All that Touchwizz Bloat, Dual camera (Samsung and LG, Not HTC), Air Gestures, etc. All of them can go in that category.

Good union... I wonder why Sharp and Pana didn't join? I hope those Japanese companies will do some competition with LG and Samsung, whom are based just some hundred kilometres away from Japan.

I wonder how this compares to the display on the Kindle Fire HDX :D

well we've seen something like that with the xperia p with not that great results. but still it was pretty good outdoors
