Please be careful with AMOLED technology. "Burn in" screen has been a concern since the beginning of AMOLED (and all kind of OLED screens). Ghost images and lost in brightness are often described in many websites as a concern for AMOLED phones, often after a few months.

One for example:

Here is an example (same thread as above) of the measure for AMOLED screens continuous lost in brightness (10% lost for blue after 96 hours):

LCD kind screens don't have such issues in normal conditions.

Geez, fandroids really believe this article to be a fact, lol. Haven't you fandroids learned anything about articles written about Apple's plans for their future devices? They're usually false. And here you guys are posting comments against Apple as if there's confirmation of this already, lol. Are you fandroids that dumb that after all these years of following Apple articles (eventhough you guys hate Apple), still don't get it? You fandroids probably also believed that article about Apple releasing an iphone with a slideout keyboard huh? Hahahahaha. Or that article about Apple releasing an iphone nano, hahahahahaha. You fandroids talk shit about Apple all the time on articles that end up being false in the end. You fandroids almost always eat your own words and come back again acting like you're so sure of yourselves, lol.

Apple PREFERS IPS display technology. Amoled displays don't use IPS technology. That's a fact. Why? Because that statement came from Apple, not from some news article from Korea.

Considering that other parts from Samsung are used in Apple products, it's not surprising that Apple would approach them for screens as well. And the lawsuit against Samsung is still bullshit.

Gemini, you can call us anything you want. But the fact remains that you're wrong about 90 percent of the time when you go up against us, just like a religious Apple worshipper would be.

The article could be false. But if it's true, our comments are relevant.

You have no right to tell me where I can and can't comment, Taco. That is all that need be said on the matter.

And when was I wrong? Did I make any predictions? Accusations? Speculations, yes. But do you ever see me on android articles making predictions and accusations? Nope. That would be you on Apple related articles making harsh comments and accusations on articles about Apple that aren't proven to be facts.

You see sniggles, lol, we can only speculate on things, or guess. And yes, I can be wrong on some, but I was never passing judgements like you do as if everyone should take my OPINIONS to be facts, unless I can provide factual statements from reliable sources, which would no longer make it an opinion but rather a fact.

Yes, Samsung does provide Apple with some hardware parts, but can you tell us for a fact what those are for the next iphone or ipad? No you can't. So be a little cautious with what you post. Although I think you already know that, but still you attack Apple any chance you get, even when you know that what is said about Apple may be untrue. Right? Haters do hate :)

Do you really want me to go trawling through old articles and find instances of you being wrong? Because I'll do it.

I agree. Haters will hate no matter what. Nothing that Apple will do, no matter how good it is, would appease haters.

Apple fanboys now suddenly praising samsung screens while earlier criticizes them in jealously in galaxy s and s2 line ups! Funny how apple likes to sue samsung and childishly get a court order to obtain and spy on samsung products but then buys all their parts

Apple buys all their parts from Samsung? That line alone tells me how ignorant you are? Let me ask you this. Who supplies the camera, display, glass casing for the Apple's iphone? Is it Samsung?

@ superandroidevo & applegayboy sorry i mean applefanboy- to be fare with everyone applegayboy the only TRUE 4G is sprint- wimax. they coined the term 4G because their wimax towers are actually called 4G. ATT Verizon and Tmo all have copied the term 4G meaning generation- when att and Tmo only use HSPA+ and big red has LTE same with ATT but currently att doesnt want to spend the money to actually use the technology they already bought, but thas neither here nor there. If apple wants to use the amoled screens for the ipad2.5 then why did they jump so quick to implement retinal displays into the ipad2. its all a money game, they suck samsungs dick for a lil bit, samsung "busts" and gives them what they want and you APPLEGAYBOY i mean fanboy, will then go out with your mommy after screaming for 3 days, crying, and hitting your head saying I NNNNNEEEEEEEDDDDD IT!!! IF I DONT HAVE IT I WILLLLL DIEEEEEEE! after shelling out 550-800 for a new ipad2 just cuz you want one with a retinal display. crapple had this planned the whole time to double their profits. so i mean come on it wasn't a surprise that they are planning an upgrade to the ipad2 and have another ipad3 inj the works for tomorrow. its apple being apple raping the us public and the world. hell yeah steve jobs you and your 100 year old saggy ball sack. at least we know steve jobs goes both ways cuz he loves to be fucked and do the fucking!

WHY THE FUCK WOULD APPLE DO THAT FOR? When they just sue Samsung for infringement. If I was SAMSUNG I would say F U drop the law suit or we will not make any screens. Now APPLE realize how beautiful their CRISP AMOLED PLUS screen looks better than the retina screen
