Samsung details its new Galaxy S5 display: the brightest, most efficient OLED screen to date can hit 698 nits

0. phoneArena 04 Apr 2014, 03:21 posted on

Samsung Display decided to elaborate on its claims that the 5.1" panel of the Galaxy S5 is the best Super AMOLED display it's put in flagships so far. Hot on the heels of the pros at Displaymate concurring with that assessment, Samsung Display issued a blog post explaining the main reasons why...

Nokia Lumias manage to hit 600 nits in those circumstances, so kudos to "Nokia" here, not Samsung.

But I am still looking forward what Samsung will offer in Note 4.

698 beats 600, but obviously not according to your match skills ;)

What I was trying to say..Lumia 925 already hit 600 nits around a year ago.

There is so much jealousy against Samsung that it is ridiculous, especially from Nokia and Sony users, take a break with it, it is not good for health, or buy a Samsung and be happy and content as the rest of us ....

Which makes it objectively a spectacular screen.

698nits is brighter than even most LCDs..
what I'd really love though is that 2nits mode. The S5 could easily be the best night clock ever.

+1....Good point and since its AMOLED only the lit up part of the display will consume battery.

Google's daydream function can be put to a good use here.

This can only be achieved through auto-brightness, so it is basically useless to me

What I meant was that this level of brightness is only accessible if you enable auto-brightness. This would be awesome if I could enable it manually. I do think that xda will figure out some way how to bypass this.

Maximum brightness will peak when you'll need it. It'll take you 5 seconds to enable the mode. Why would you want 700 nits during the night ?

Good improvements, but amoled is still amoled. Burn in will happen especially with high brightness and colour shift is still worst than ips lcd. I own the gs2 and gs4.

burn in? proof? i read soo many people talk about burn in problems with amoled in blog websites only but never in real life. I also check out the XDA website every now and then and i rarely see people complaining about burn in and weird colour shift on amoled screen.

Are you ok, have some kind of fever or what?
Burn in is known FACT...FACT, and one more time FACT for amoled.
You need proof: Google boy Google...or ask Sammy.
