If you think that Super Amoled it's the best hands down! It's BURN EFFECT display don't believe me google it.

Except that you don't know any details about the blue oled pixel efficiency/lifetime in the newer display. If the display uses less power as advertised, the oleds are likely more efficient, don't need to be overdriven, and will therefore be less prone to image retention. Do a little homework next time.

Are you all working for Samsung? I mean seriously which one of the pictures above proves that the 1 year old retina display, which BTW is also made by SAMSUNG, is worse that the other two?

I mean seriously, What Are You Smoking?

I didn't know what a difference AMOLED would make until I bought one. The contrast is better, the colors are richer (not more natural, just more vibrant), and the viewing angles are wider. Now that they've worked Pentile out of the system, the only downside is they haven't started making high pixel density (ie smaller) screens yet.

That said, the retina display is amazing as well.

Clearly nothing as bad as you're smoking if your eyes are so shot that you can't differentiate between the contrast and color levels. Maybe you need a new monitor on your PC...or maybe you're looking at the pictures on your retina display so the contrast and color is washed out on the entire picture - LOL.

As noted below, LG makes the retina display, not Samsung. Thanks for playing, though.

Bullshizt!!! .....Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus has 30% more sub-pixels arranged much like IPS, but more importantly it makes it's own light. Therefore response times are near instantaneous. Unlike all IPS screens even back to their roots, have always had response times better suited to static images than Action Videos or Games!!!

The response time of Retina is an abysmal **** 25 MS **** yes a snake could strike you DEAD in that time. While Super AMOLED is 0.01ms and there simply isn't anything faster! So.... if all you do is read iBooks and look at porn pics and vids in slow motion on your phone then CrApple's iPwned 4 is the device for you!!! lol... I may like a little porn, but I'd rather be speed bumping and pumping bitoches in real life than checking shizt out on my iPorned 4 I can't hold while making a call!!! :P

*facepalm* Fanboy fite again. U totally ruin every single discussions with ur utter bs. Try to learn to discuss like sivilized persons and give proper opinions oh and stop lying to urself gddmnd. Anyways, I own atm SGS2 and iPhone 3G. Mostlikely my Sammys screen doesnt work well or then it is just crap quality bcs the color gradients are not smooth, the camera has pink area in the middle of the screen and that pink area is on the pictures as well, on and the phone freezes 1-3 times per day... and when the phone automatically adjust the brightness of the screen it totally ruins the outlook by making colors and gradients look even more ugly. Funny that I recently have read that many SGS2 owners have the same issues I have. This doesnt build any good name for Sammy. My old iPhone 3G has better looking screen quality no doubt atout it. And In fact Android phone has ONLY ONE benefit over the iPhone. The possibility to build the UI look more unique with thousands of widgets. Sad that the more u build the more unstable phone u get. Anyways, when u get ur attitudes fixed, which I hardly believe, u will realize that both phones are capable to give u what u expect from the phone so u can be satisfied. Ofc u can continue to be fanboy dolts and close ur eyes from the strong points of the phone which ever is ur "enemy brand". Have a nice day.
