Samsung Galaxy S 4 review posted early, new sub-pixel arrangement confirmed

0. phoneArena 14 Mar 2013, 13:31 posted on

We're pretty sure that whoever posted this detailed Samsung Galaxy S 4 review shouldn't have done so, yet they did, presumably in order to rake up some page visits ahead of the smartphone's official announcement. Unfortunately, all of it is in Chinese - a language we're not fluent in, yet good thing that we have Google Translate to rescue us. First of all, the review confirms a number of Samsung Galaxy S 4 specs, including the use of a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa SoC running at 1.8GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM. The main camera is also said to be of 13 megapixels, just as we expected...

Hopefully this sub pixel arrangement is good, because I'm tired of the pentile bulls**t. The white on my Galaxy Nexus is pitiful, and I can tell a clear difference with IPS LCDs, and they fare much better. Well I guess my phones older but still. IPS LCD has proven to be brighter, more realistic, and clearer (RGB layout) than AMOLED while still maintaining good contrast. I've got an upgrade waiting so the screen is the deciding factor for me when it comes between the HTC One and the S4 (and design).

The s3 was their last flagship using the pentile screens. They said starting with the note 2 and onwards it will all be RGB or better.

"I've got an upgrade waiting so the screen is the deciding factor for me when it comes between the HTC One and the S4 (and design)."

The s4 will have a better cpu, gpu, battery and more storage options + more.

The one will have far better speakers, much better build quality, better screen + more. What is your point? Every phone has advantages and disadvantages, don't try to distort things by only saying the strong points of one phone.

Samsung has kind of ruined the OLED name with Amoled. A good OLED destroys IPS, hopefully it is a major upgrade cause their current best amoled (Note 2) can't keep up with IPS.

The 4.7 inch s-LCD 3 on the ONe looks wayy better...
