Xperia Z2 and Note 3 screens get compared on video, guess which one looks more vivid

0. phoneArena 17 Mar 2014, 04:15 posted on

The Xperia Z2 is unlike the other Zs in Sony's flagship lineup, as it sports an IPS-LCD display, instead of the subpar twisted nematic (TN) LCD tech of its predecessors. Bad viewing angles, and washed out colors, are the most common complaints in the Xperia Z and Z1 reviews, and Sony has remedied the situation with the excellent panel on the Z2...

You mean Sony fanboys.
Don't make other honest Sony fans angry, man. That can turn them into mindless fanboys someday.

LoL, good one...
Sammy is the one that lost its momentum lately.
It seems that SONY is slowly rising from its ashes

Says "FriendsOfSamsung" - don't like to see non-Samsung devices improve?

"This video only showS how desperate the ignoranT Sony fans are"

I'm not a grammar nazi, but that first sentence from your comment shows that you are an idiot! :D

And you're calling others ignorant.

Kids these days...

Z2 screen looks really good.No doubt in that.But I Doubt they have used movie mode of note 3 display which gives more like LCD color rather than over saturated Amoled color. The dynamic mode is extremely vivid. Anybody who is using a Note 3 can understand what I am saying.

Lol funny before amoled was too saturated and unnatural and that was bad but now Sony have a even more saturated and unnatural colour and it's good and amoled is now poor. I've been saying for so long that everyone who's been using non amoled screens have been saturating there screens to come closer to the amoled screen.. Each year these companies say it's 20% more saturated etc but reviewers always claim oh the ips screen on this phone is natural when the oems themselves tout it to be more saturated etc.

You must be some tough girl insulting online. Guess what Lcd can burn in toohttp://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1773437
The difference is Lcd just takes longer and even then on amoled burn in is not equal as it depends on the quality of screen.

Samsung has built in screen modes to tone down vividness.. It's movie mode by display mate was considered one of the most accurate colors on a display and was rated up there with the best of ips screens.

This test clearly demonstrates how two and half 'lost decades' can adversely affect your technology prowess. Oh what brilliant Note 3 ... absolutely BRILLIANT.

Those pictures looked horrible on the Z2 judging from the camera. How the Note 3 portrayed them would fit right in with a magazine ad. How the Z2 portrayed them wouldn't past the drawing board. They would think that there was a printer problem where the too much ink was being used.

That looks really over-saturated, reds especially, to thepoint of losing detail.
Hopefully Sony will fix it.

both phones are maxed up to highest brightness ,
third photo is supposed to have these rich colors after all, the curtain are red not brown and if anyone looked at the chandelier ,its light is normal not over saturated at all,
so the z2 produce more accurate colors whatever the setting is on the note3.
