LG's and Samsung's Display divisions will sort out their differences outside court
LG and Samsung, or rather their respective Display divisions, have been exchanging kicks and punches in court since quite a while, but it seems that both companies have had enough of this. The news is that their executives have secretly met in a hotel (probably somewhere in South Korea), with the result of the meeting being that they'll now try to sort their differences out through dialog instead of litigation. We approve! Make love, not war, guys!

As you can imagine, Samsung Display has been suing LG Display for infringing on its OLED and PLS patents, while LG Display has been counter-suing Samsung Display for infringing on its OLED patents. Go figure!

Historically, Samsung has been using AMOLED-based displays in pretty much all of its higher-end phones. For those who don't know, the cool thing about these displays is that they deliver stunning images due to their incredibly high contrast ratio and vivid colors. On the flip side, though, their color temperature is somewhat unnatural, allowing the advanced LCD screens of today to gain the advantage in this respect. It is still impossible to say which of the two technologies — AMOLED or LCD — is better, because they both have their pros and cons.

You have to look deeper into Korean culture to understand that the betterment of their country comes first and foremost among Koreans.

yeah - thats how its done among civilised companies and speaks volume about their culture.

Something lacking in a certain US company.

When they name a company after a fruit and try to patent it - what else can you expect???

After stealing that name from a music company themselves. Then, promising that music company they would never go into music sales in exchange for the right to use the name, the n selling music.

No honor among fruits.

... Or maybe they have both stolen from each other and determined that it'd be cheaper to just sort things out off-court.

Maybe they have maybe they haven't but it shows that each company would rather not waste money on court

Then they were mature enough to realize that, and it would still be a lesson for certain other firms.

One went the AMOLED route, the other went the LCD route. Two different technologies. What exactly would they stealing from each other here?

Also, Sony didn't create the OLED display. It was Kodak and Sanyo.

I prefer the IPS LCD with its natural looking colors and better whites than the super saturated AMOLEDS..!
