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

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...

I would not quote phonearena for knowing the intimate details about pricing for amoled manufacturing. I also fail to see how a penTile display will last longer than an RGB display. The blue subpixel will die off at the same rate no matter what the panel type. Shrinking the subpixel distance doesn't sound like it's going to remedy the main problem, which is the lack of that extra subpixel which is needed to make all pixels uniform and equal. An RG is not a BG, and putting them next to each other means the display will neither be uniform nor accurate in color. It will still create a grainy effect, just of a different type of grain. Unless they can increase the resolution even more than the galaxy nexus, You are still working with the same number of pixels on a slightly larger display so it doesn't matter how you rearrange them, it will still be grainy and no better than the galaxy nexus in this respect.
I'd like to add as a counterweight, that HTc really needs to stop touting its imaging capabilities when their video and audio capture is absolutely atrocious.
Phone companies. Please stop releasing these dumb BS statements when the fact is, you couldn't deliver or lacked the technology or time to implement. It's obviously not aimed at the mass market since no one there cares. The enthusiasts will just disect your BS and it'll fuel pointless fan wars that can negatively affect your bottom line.
