I always prefer LCD over OLED based displays. OLED based displays has to much and essential cons.

And I believe that LG Optimus G display or maybe even LG's NOVA display beats them all. :P

Would be nice in the future to see LG Optimus G, HTC One X and Nokia Lumia 920 displays comparisons. :)

I love my SGS II's display. Its beautiful but a little "unreal" (oversaturated)

Ok but does it have the same specs than the s3 like processor or ram? I I haven't read much into the xperia de line, and so is interesting.

no the xperia s has an dual core 1.5ghz s3 chip and 1gb ram.

I can care less who's beating who, all I can say is the ip5 is one heck of a phone and so is the gs3.

It's really a lot more crisp, with the screen having 44% more saturation. I'd say they're about even.

Steve Jobs spoke a lie (one of many) about iPhone and retina display ... read more here from the same person who runs the Displaymate)

http://www.pcworld.com/article/198402/iPhone_4_retina_display.html

So it's retina display if u hold yr phone 18" away from you ... else a BIG NO....

Let's cover all aspects when displaymate is quoted :)

It's funny, since DisplayMate lists 10.5" for "Retina Display" in the comparison. RTFA.

My mind refuses to accept what is factually not correct and is nothing but a high pitched sales "gimmick"

Someone said that even the macbook which is claimed as retina is indeed retina if you can balance it on your toe and then work :D

Wonder how it'll fare against the Lumia 920, as well as some of the androids with newer-displays (since the GS3 is about a half-year old now)? Guessing not as well.

It sho doesn't...the Note 2 uses a RGB matrix display and the GS3 and Note 1 use a PenTile display. Check it out in the new review:
