LCDs are the best in color accuracy. No bluish white and more power efficient than AMOLEDs. I haven't yet seen an AMOLED that is calibrated to the SRGB color space.The S3 even have a PenTile display that's why it's even worse. LCDs will always win against AMOLEDs. CNET maybe biased but it's actually true that the iPhone 5 has a better screen.

No, you're actually wrong. It's the other way around. According to Scientific tests, LCDs are more power efficient EXCEPT when it comes to viewing black images. Theoretically, AMOLEDs should be more power efficient, but it terms of normal use, you will never use just a plain black screen. LCDs will always be more power efficient than AMOLEDs. HTC One X, LG Optimus G, Xperia V, and Lumia 920 are just one of the best smarphone display right now avalabile right now.

To be Honest Opening a Htc One X, and using it as my personal and the Iphone 5 as work phone, The one x has a better display. Also I think my Atrix HD might out do the Iphone 5 or its rather close cant tell a different really.

The retail price for SIII is around $650 while IP5 retails for $850,so even if IP5 wins in some places the 200$ is huge premium to pay for it.
I am surely not crazy to pay this extra for a 4 inch phone

What is this crap? seriously you guys (phonearena) have like 5 different news about "Apple has better screen than s3" or "LG Optimus G has better battery than s3" are you guys trying to ruin for Samsung or what? Suddenly every phone is better than S3?

The important thing is the SG3 is the one they compare everything to because it is one of the best. It is the example all phones should be held up to.

Has it ever occurred to CNET that Samsung DELIBERATELY use AMOLED for its oversaturated colours? AMOLED is used BECAUSE of its inaccurate saturated colours.

iphone5 can win all the tests they perform, but I'll never buy apple priducts.
I'm upgrading to either GS 3 or Note 2.

Who the hell cares?? I don't give a damn whichever handset gives off the greatest hues and saturation - unless I'm gonna use these phones for digital imaging and photography..

It's sad if any sites says the iPhone 5 is better ...their ifans or bias...If galaxy wins the test ...must be accurate...I have an android an I can admit when there is something better and the iPhone clearly has a better display...suck it up and move on...
