Samsung says you shouldn't be satisfied with the 1080p screen of the regular Galaxy S5

Samsung says you shouldn't be satisfied with the 1080p screen of the regular Galaxy S5
Samsung last month introduced its very first smartphone to feature a Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) display: the Galaxy S5 LTE-A. While the new handset is available only in South Korea, with no plans regarding an international launch, Samsung is already telling customers that a Quad HD - or WQHD - screen is so much better than the Full HD (1,080 x 1,920) display of the regular Galaxy S5.

In an official blog post today, Samsung says that “you shouldn’t be satisfied with what you're used to,” because a Quad HD screen “is known to be 187% clearer than” a Full HD one.

The S5 LTE-A and the regular S5 offer the same screen size (5.1 inches), but the Quad HD display of the newer smartphone provides an ultra-high 577 ppi density, instead of the 432 ppi density of the old model. So it’s obvious why the new screen is sharper.

Samsung seems to imply that its Quad HD display is better than the one featured by LG’s G3, by saying: “when having higher PPI, Super AMOLED's visual quality is maximized and the gap between it and LCD deepens.”

Samsung is now waiting for Quad HD “to be standard on smartphone displays” before making the next steps - which, according to the company, should bring us flexible and transparent displays. Well, we're waiting for that, too!

Well I give sh@t to Samsung if they think they can decide what's satisfactory for me.

They should keep on giving multiple choices and refreshed devices of what they already have and let the consumers decide what's good for themselves.

Most certainly, especially with super amoled. I can't wait to get my hands on the Galaxy S5 Prime or Note 4, the S tab and the curved 4K TV. The best displays got even better with Qhd, SAMMY FTW!!!!!!!

It doesn't take much to get you on a side, huh?

It'd be funny if someone was able to corner a high-end Samsung exec with a QHD and a 1080p phone, and ask them which was which.

The difference is noticeable and it is already proven!

Why "poor"? They have best smartphone yet.
Don't count Korea, because there Samsung make the first test. It will take time to be worldwide.

Why poor? I have the S5 and I am pretty satisfied with my choice, it's not like my S5 stopped working just when Samsung released the QHD version in Korea.

Because they themselves are saying you shouldn't be satisfied with the display yet the phone is only a few months old...

Subjective opinion.

OK your iPhone is the best.
But S5 users having the best display yet worldwide, IS NOT subjective. Right?

No they didn't say so.
They said it to ALL smartphone users. That they should never be satisfied, and wait for next big thing.
S5 users(not you iboy) have the best displays yet. (available worldwide).
Not sure even that Note 4 will have it. To be able to produce millions , takes time.
