No you got me wrong

You are silly because you triggered this bulls**ts which have been discussed many times

You said you liked LCD first and then you stated LCD's pros and Amoled cons all day long~
So my question is, are you sure you just said that
"I just prefer LCD over OLED" ???

Then I respect your opinion but please don't give me all BSs which I already knew and don't make me give you that you already knew.

That's why I replied to you, "Would you stop" first

Then I have a question for you, if you don't want to have any discussion about OLED and LCD, then why are you join this discussion?

I think always better to have good tech discussion than troll wars, don't you think so? :)

Phonearenauser you are one reasonable guy! I really like your objective method of reasoning. AMOLEDs are nice to look at (deep blacks, saturated colors nice efficiency when not displaying too much of whites). But I think as it stands, LCDs (the IPS kind as used on the iPhone 4/4s and 5) are better in my opinion. They don't have the issue of being less efficient when displaying whites (most websites use the colour white as background colour), have nice contrast, show very natural, truer-to-life colors, have better brightness and are sharper (excluding the super AMOLED plus) than OLEDs. All these are pretty important in our modern day smartphone. But this is my humble opinion tho. Currently using an iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S 3 btw.

LCD will never have the appeal of Amoled displays. The colors on amoled displays are better. LCD screens have crappy color reproduction. On my nexus 10 for example, the details and sharpness is great but colors are dead and faded.

"The colors on amoled displays are better."

The colours on OLED displays are unnatural.

OLED based displays has more essential problems than only unnatural colours.

While no one has improved organic compounds which are used in OLED based displays, I say yes, LCD would be better decision. :)

I don't say that OLED is bad idea, I even believe that there is a big feature for similar technologies like OLED, but not for today while no one has improved organic compounds which are used in OLEDs.

No it wouldn't. Almost every other manufacturer is using LCDs; Samsung stands out with its AMOLED screens (amongst other things).

If you really need "natural" colours, go buy an IPS desktop monitor. Phones work best with OLED because of the outstanding blacks (LCDs get destroyed by AMOLED's blacks ie my bro's Nexus 4's display is sh*t mainly because of the lacklustre blacks).

Phones aren't the place for photoediting and/or graphic design. Keep that sh*t on your computer.

"Phones work best with OLED because of the outstanding blacks..."

Can this statement be even more silly? So other phones just doesn't work because don't have real black?

First you say that natural colours are not important on a phone but then you are talking about "outstanding" blacks... Isn't that silly?

And if you have read my comments you should see that I'm talking not about colours!

Wow.. You're dumber than I initially thought. On smartphones which basically use a lot of media content blacks and colors that pop are a lot more important than natural so called colors. And that first statement by you just makes me facepalm

I remember long time ago I was Googling and found two big forums with vote polls in both forums voted really big number of Samsung Wave (S8500) users and in both polls ~30-40% users was claiming that after 3-4 month they have noticed 'Burn-in' effect. ~30-40% in 3-4 month it is really big numbers in such short time.
And today we can find more and more Google results about 'Burn-in' effect.

In my opinion there is four main OLED based display cons:
1) Really short lifespan (due to organic compounds degradation).
2) Can not handle intensive "working load" and it expressed as 'Burn-In' effect (also due to organic compounds degradation).
3) Colors are not natural.
4) Relatively not so clear and sharp images.

No one still has improve organic compounds which are used in OLEDs and are bigest OLEDs problem. They have improve matrixes and used other "tricks" but hasn't improve main element - organic compounds.

Watch this video an you will understand what I mean by saying more clear and sharp images:

Damn dude relaaaax. You've proven your point. I understand that you prefer LCD tech because of this and that. But saying all those things won't change the fact that Samsung Galaxy smartphones sell like pancakes.

I don't try to prove opposite, I were talking about OLED and why I prefer LCD. :)

I agree. AMOLED does look nice, but the main issue with them is the oversaturation and blue-ish tint. LCD gives more true to life colors, especially the SLCD that HTC uses. In the end I guess its up to someone's personal preference, but if the GS4 has AMOLED, I'll be getting the HTC One.

Errr, go inform yourself on colour reproduction because you don't seem to know what it is, if you are saying LCDs are crap. AMOLEDs are great, they look great but the sub-par brightness, blue tint at angles and burn in are kind of deal breakers, i don't doubt AMOLED might be the future but right now IPS LCDs hold the crown.

Also don't come with the "burn in is fake, it doesn't happen" because my sister's galaxy S2 has burn in.

I'm not saying lcd's are crap i'm saying the color they produce are dead. The colors aren't vivid. Amoled displays have cons but they are more of a pleasure to look at. Many people may prefer lcd but i don't and i know i'm not the only person that feels Amoled displays are betters.

I do prefer LCD sometimes because AMOLED's colors are oversaturated, but i love the deep blacks of AMOLED.

As for the S4 itself, not going expect anything groundbreaking, including the eye tracking with front cam - it is not really practical to me. If i were reasing the last paragraph at the bottom, before im done reading will it flip the page? I have many doubts on how efficient and practical it will be, but i will reserve my judgement until i get to touch the device. However, im not going to buy a single smartphone made by Samsung again, S2 screem broke, S3 screen also broke from a simple knock - thanks to the weak plastic on the bezels.
