Amazing, but still wish that OLED had longer lifetime and more realistic colours.

"...but it is not oled it's amoled..."

AMOLED = Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode

OLED = Organic Light Emitting Diode

AMOLED is based on OLED technology.

Get some knowledge before talking!

"...it has long enough lifetime..."

Have you ever heard about Organic Compounds degradation which are used in OLED technolog?

I don't care you have noticed it yet or not, I just talk about the technical FACTS. It also depends on how you use it.

"bullshi..."

It is stupid to call technical FACTS bulls**t, because it is not someones opinion, it is technical FACT!

Sammy's Omnia II was a very early AMOLED style phone. I believe it had RGB style pixels and it launched with a version of Touchwiz that had a LOT of purple in it. It took my blue pixels about 10 months to burn-in to about 50% efficiency. The lock screen would glitch and stay lit the entire time it was charging overnight, so it was a little bit harsh.

If you made it through my story, I have a point! Samsung updated Touchwiz and it had almost no colors that used the blue pixels after that. The blue pixels are also usually the largest in a pentile matrix, which I think is done so they can be run much lighter to extend their life.

They are better than the early generations.

I remember one year ago I was googling and found two big forums with vote polls in both forums voted really big number of Samsung Wave (S8500) users and in both polls ~30-40% users was claiming that after 3-4 month they have noticed 'Burn-in'. ~30-40% in 3-4 month it is really big numbers in such short time.
And today we can find more and more Google results about 'Burn-in' effect.

Developers are just 'playing' with matrices but that won't eliminate the problem and they know that. There is only one way to eliminate the problem, they should improve
Organic Compounds, synthesize or something...

Well, there's one thing good about AMOLED. If there are no colours needed they can just show black, which is actually just turning the pixels off. When the pixels are off you can extend the life of the screen (applies only to AMOLEDs).

So another good way for you (on our end) to extend the screen life is use predominantly black themes.

Yes I agree, OLED based screens may be really good but they still need to evolve.

Pros:
1) Thinness
2) Saving energy
3) Large viewing angles
4) Rich colors

Cons:
1) Relatively short lifetime (Organic Compounds degradation)
2) Tend to get 'Burn-in' effect (Organic Compounds degradation)

Of Course you can reduce brightness to a minimum, try to use different themes and so on, but it is disadvantage because main problem will not disappear and you will be just ignoring it.

Well for now AMOLED is the best. The more natural colors of the new LCD2s have their fans but I prefer the vibrancy of the SuperAMOLEDs.

I'm not bothered by the Burn-in effect since I change my phone every one and a half to two years. Don't put much thought on the lifetime too. I'm sure you wouldn't hold on to your phone longer than 2years right?

I have an Omnia II, Verizon version, about 3 years old, used heavily for the first year, and my son uses it now as a video/MP3 player, and I have no burn in or degradation.

Me too, I still have an omnia 2(i8000) and I haven't noticed any "burn in" on my phone because I mostly use it for watching videos. But do you think it will still be advisable for me to use a blue wallpaper?

Use a black wall paper. That's the best for AMOLEDs.

I expect the competition between high res PLS LCD of Samsung competes and high res IGZO screen of Sharp.

After all those crash test videos posted on PA... Suddenly "32% thinner" is not something that's giving me a lot of comfort.

It is good that it is thin, then they can put on it thicker and more durable protective layer (kind of gorilla glass or something similar).

Actually, I am not so concerned by the tiny difference in thickness. What DOES intrest me is a SUPER screen, like the new LG 5" with 1920 x 1080 Full HD. Samsung, pay attention, We want that resolution in the GALAXY NOTE 2, but not Pentile.
