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...

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?

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.

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.

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.

He's talking about technology in general and OEMs, not the Samsung implementation on the S5.

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.

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.

How is that possible when the S5 has an unproportionate amount of green pixels in its display?

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.

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.

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.
