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...

If these are true, then congratulations to Sammy.

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 ;)
70. torr310 (Posts: 375; Member since: 27 Oct 2011)
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 ....

actually this samsungdisplay's post is all based on displaymate's.

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
9. Jason2k13 (Posts: 643; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
why is it useless? The sun doesn't shine in your country? or the sun is too strong the

LOL this thread is full of great jokes xD

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.
60. wildfiregt (Posts: 96; Member since: 10 Jun 2013)
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 ?
20. tech2 (Posts: 2073; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
What about the amazing battery life and arguably the best camera on an android phone ?
40. Duketytz (Posts: 479; Member since: 28 Nov 2013)
Prefer Micro SD card slot, IP58, Glass and Metal design:)
57. MrKoles (Posts: 321; Member since: 20 Jan 2013)
And I prefer one-handed use when it comes to smartphones.
69. SamsungELITE (unregistered)
you just made me laugh, you still prefer IP57 over the great IP67? oh my c'mon

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.
11. Jason2k13 (Posts: 643; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
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.
65. nedooo (Posts: 16; Member since: 10 Apr 2012)
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.
16. williamdroid (Posts: 125; Member since: 19 Jan 2014)
I still have my GS2.
I see no signs of burn in.

*Yet another troll and samsung hater.
41. nxl2610 (Posts: 49; Member since: 14 Aug 2013)
i've been on my S2 for almost 3 years now ,maybe i must wait another 3 years to get this so called "burn in" effect
And yeah ,hater gonna hate
54. anirudhshirsat97 (Posts: 391; Member since: 24 May 2011)
My s2 is almost 3 years old now and still no burn in issue.
66. nedooo (Posts: 16; Member since: 10 Apr 2012)
If you don't use it, it wont happen, same as car you don't drive won't spend any fuel...
80. Karriope (Posts: 95; Member since: 07 Jun 2013)
So I used my SII daily for two years with copious screen-on time and heavy web browsing, but it's never had a stuck image or "burn-in", but an -LCD- did. Just what are you so upset about?
79. nedooo (Posts: 16; Member since: 10 Apr 2012)
If you don't use it it wont have burn in ever...silly :P
78. nedooo (Posts: 16; Member since: 10 Apr 2012)
I had Omnia HD...Wave...S1...S2...
All suffer from BURN IN, but as long there is an army of funboys masochists Samy will not even try to look in to this...
52. AustinPaul (Posts: 35; Member since: 13 Dec 2011)
I've never experienced burn-in on ANY phone ever. Still rockin' my S3 via Wifi for some stuff, while on 5 months w/ Note 3. Keep phones pretty bright too.
55. Karriope (Posts: 95; Member since: 07 Jun 2013)
What's all this burn-in I'm hearing about lately?
I've never seen any "burn-in" phenonemons or stuck images (that's "burn-in" means to me) or significant color degradation over the two years plus my SII has been with me.
Ironically the LCD on my Walkman (that's a SONY of course) had a white-burn-in stuck image at one point for a while. Fortunately it went away after some screen-off time.

one thing that samsung mobile is great at :D

Seems like someone died in the inside after reading the article.

don't forget they have a great marketing department

Cry more samoled displays are always the best atleast from 2011.
19. Amir1 (Posts: 266; Member since: 20 Aug 2013)
my main problem with amoled displays are the inferior natural colors. when panel manufacturers will have the right tech to advance in that then other oem's will start using oleds. also, oleds are more expensive then ips. i'm glad that most oem use ips. overall, it is superior imo.
24. cai4651 (Posts: 26; Member since: 09 Mar 2014)
Cinema mode...you read that part right? Excelent color accuracy.....
29. mixedfish (Posts: 117; Member since: 17 Nov 2013)
He's talking about technology in general and OEMs, not the Samsung implementation on the S5.
34. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3317; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
Try a super amoled for a week. You wont give a f to color accuracy. Those punchy and vibrant colors are just mindblowing. Superior viewing angles, now brighter screen, infinite contrast, perfect zero blacks, great minimum brightness, best sunlight legibility which cant be beaten by any LCD.
46. true1984 (Posts: 591; Member since: 23 May 2012)
i tried it but i didn't like it. although this new amoled is pretty amazing. if i didnt already have the m8 i might have given the s5 a chance(after rooting and flashing immediately)

S5 dispay has the most natural colors , that human eyes have seen on display.
You have old information, man.
56. dmh0284 (Posts: 12; Member since: 04 Apr 2014)
How is that possible when the S5 has an unproportionate amount of green pixels in its display?
64. Krjal (Posts: 61; Member since: 19 Dec 2013)
Because not every sub-pixel is on maximum power all the time. The image processor handles that. It's the same thing that let's you use any screen with coloured sub - pixels.
The processor also lets you tune the display to show more natural colours for regular use.
31. Denco (Posts: 34; Member since: 25 Mar 2014)
The interesting thing is that every new high-end Samsung Galaxy doesn't hit home at the unveiling. The powerful features are usually hidden and begin to come to the fore as time goes on. Then, the so-called initial disappointment would give way to admiration and sell out. Same with Galaxy S3, S4 and now S5.
39. Eclectech (Posts: 68; Member since: 01 May 2013)
Somehow I'm still not convinced I'd want this over a proper LCD screen. Samsung screens have typically gone overboard with color saturation and I prefer natural color.

Hats off to samsung on this 1 for raising the display bar even higher, hope the rest of the industry will follow suit, Competition is good for us all.
