Samsung on why it went PenTile with the Galaxy S III display: It's the longevity, silly!

0. phoneArena 11 May 2012, 02:41 posted on

Samsung apparently deems PenTile superior for an AMOLED screen longevity. We know that blue subpixels deteriorate orders of magnitude faster in an OLED screen die to the nature of their components, compared to the long-lasting green and red. With recent advancements in the blue diodes, this has been remedied to an extent, but on the research phase, and not yet implemented in mass production, it seems...

Alrighty, this explained it.
Kudos, Samsung, seems that you've put your best in that screen after all.
Keeping the same relative sharpness as the GNex, (as hinted in the article), but boosting the brightness(300+nits vs those bad 200+ on GNex), and size significantly.
Perfect!
Can't wait to check it out - now i believe it'll be just good enough for me.

If we are sheeps to samsung its better than to be a sheep to a fashion phone like iphone. I still have my bluetooth,file manager,2500ma batt,5.3"hd amoled screen which looks better than the 3.5 on the iphone for me,clear call speakers,plastic but very durable,usb connectivity and sd card functions. I will be a sheep to samsung than to apple,why myst i own a phone which cant send a simple picture to a friend through bluetooth? I pity you guys,wake up from your slumbers.

Bitch please.....grow up.

Stick with your Old phones and don't upgrade to the S3 because this phone is not much better than your current device.

Stop being Sheep....

I haven't said one word regarding upgrading to the SGS3. My question to you is what is your definition of spending money wisely, yet you avoided they question and used profanity. Seems like you're the one who need some manners and to grow up.

Another person who has some reading problems on PA. Seems like taco and you will be good friends.

Once again, I'm going to ask, what is your definition of spending money wisely.

Okay, so what do you consider as trash, and what not?

My phone is pretty out of date in my opinion and I am actively looking for a replacement, but unfortunately SGS3 isn't on the list right now. However, I'm still curious, what do you consider as trash, and what not. So far you've told me that the SGS3 is trash, but you haven't told me what you would consider as spending money wisely.

Let me explain to you what i mean Spending your money wisely....
You said you have a dated phone and you want to upgrade,let me tell you what i would do if i was you.
I would first root my old phone and overclock it,make it a little faster and see if i am satisfied with my device and keep my money.
If i still need something faster then i wouldn't jump to a quad core immediately but i would see if i can get a dual core in a good price example Galaxy S2,Some HTC phones or even a Lumnia 800 would be a good deal.Look what you need and don't be a fanboy, nobody needs these quad core Bulls**t phones because these phones are not much faster than the previous dual core processors.
Phone brands want to make money but they are not making anything dramatically new.....
Yes the S3 is garbage for the money you pay,some of the specs this phone has are kind of dated example the screen and camera plus the build quality is not premium but i bet Samsung will charge the device 500$+ that's what i call steeling peoples money.

Seems like you know what you're talking about. The only thing is, you're just really unhappy that the SGS3 didn't reach your expectation. Even if you're unhappy, it's because of your own point of views that you're unhappy. I have a 1.0 phone that's i've OC'ed to 1.8, any dual core phone and above would be an upgrade for me. I'd still get a quad core because I know eventually I'll be able to OC a 1.5 quad core phone to a higher clock.

To tell you the truth, I would find people who are planning to buy SGS3 much better than those who just follow Apple's iPhone release blindly, just because "it's an iPhone, it's Apple and almost everyone around me has it". No need to use iPhone 5 as an argument because it's not even officially announced yet. The specs for SGS3 is definitely impressive, specs wise it's definitely top of the line right now who knows for how long. If I was to buy a SGS3, it would be for the hardware specs and features, not for the screen or design cause yes, I think the design is ugly. To you it may not be worth it. To others, they may have found their perfect phone.

To tell you the truth, if Remix was to reply to your rants. I'd bet he'd called you a crying whiner.

These double standards are just ridiculous. So now it's OK to be a "sheep" as long as you're a "Samsung sheep"?!

PenTile, MenTile, does it matter? It cannot beat the Retina.

Nobody want to beat a small 3.5" screen. It only for little girls used.

the retina only looks sharp because its so small. its a lower resolution and would not still be "retina" at 4.8 inches.. in fact, it would be subpar.

What about the New Ipad?
The screen of the New Ipad is big but still Retina.

its not retina.

retina denotes anything above 300ppi. its a marketing term that just basically means you cant see pixels.

LCD2, Super Amoled 720 pentile, and a bunch of other screens all qualify as retina

the new ipad screen is higher resolution, but it falls well short of 300ppi.

yes. dont believe me? Phone Arena has this tab on the side for phones and tablets. look up the ipad3. Its well below the 300ppi threshold. People are just excited because the old iPad had a very low res screen on it.

Retina is a marketing gimmick that Apple is misusing.

The term 'Retina Display' is based on more than just the basic PPI of the screen. The whole point of the term is to describe a screen where, at the average viewing distance, you cannot discern the individual pixels. As such, a screen that you hold, on average, further away from you doesn't require as high a PPI as a screen that you hold, on average, closer to you.

This is how the new iPad screen is also a Retina Display.

When I saw the title stating that Samsung was using PenTile technology on thus GS3, I thought to myself that I'm not going to be getting one. Now that I've read the article, ill just have to wait and see what the screen/device is like. I've still got a while to ask though before I can renew my contract.
