Screen Comparison: Galaxy S4 vs iPhone 5 vs Xperia Z vs One vs Galaxy S III vs Lumia 920

0. phoneArena 28 Mar 2013, 09:42 posted on

The Galaxy S4 – the hottest Android smartphone right now... We're so happy that we had the chance to check this guy out early on! Not only did we enjoy it, but we also managed to get a lot of content done for you guys. One of the things we decided is worth checking out was how the brilliant 5" 1080p Super AMOLED screen compared against the other best screens currently available. You know, the usual suspects like the iPhone 5, Lumia 920, One and so on. Well, let us tell you this – the Samsung has done a wonderful job with the GS4's screen, although there's still room for improvement...

So many thumb downs for such a clear fact? Guys, samsung is definitely the best in somethings (e.g. marketing) but not in everything :)

What happened to the Amoled lovers? Amoled is still my favorite because I love the bold and punchy colors. I don't want just realistic colors, I want colors that look better than real life.

Better than real life? If it's not showing you what the colors actually look like, it's lying to you.

and hows that gonna affect your life or mine? we know blue is blue, yellow is yellow no matter how washed out or saturated it is... if it looks good to the eyes, then why not? My toshiba laptop screen looks washed out compared to my htc one X... and i still love my laptop and does not affect my ability to recognise colours... in the end its all about personal preferences and yes i love the colour of the amoled because it looks good to look at.

LOL - looks like GS4 has a super crappy display. I was never happy with the dim pentile GS3 display and GS4 is even dimmer! Look at those disgusting amoled white levels - pass.

Phone arena please stop being bias and just say that the HTC ONE has the best screen. Dont come give me that shate about iPhone 5 and HTC One are unsurpassed. Start promoting HTC where they really deserve it in screen category.

only phonearena will make the amoled screen look bad against the one and iphone5. gsmarena said the s4 screen was better than the htc one which is close or same as the iPhone. shame on phone arena.

This russia site has been bought by Samsung and even russians laugh at the articles on those sites. So this link is not reliable.

Those who still bitch about pen tile.. check out how smooth lines those round pixels of the S4 produce.

It's actually the most detailed screen out there

Samsung should just use LCD and an aluminum body special edition GS4 so the people have no more excuses. I would love to see how many mass suicides there would be on phonearena.
