Rubbing it in: Amidst Pixel 2 XL screen troubles, Samsung outs commercial about its "amazing" screens
by Victor Hristov / Oct 26, 2017, 5:55 AM
It's not a good time to be the display guy over at the Google Pixel team: the company just launched its most expensive and highest profile phone ever, the Google Pixel 2 XL, but it suffers from some bad viewing angles and ghosting problems that might just ruin a lot of its appeal.
How is Samsung doing, you ask? Well, it just released a commercial that rubs it in: basically, it's a compilation of various reviewers waxing poetical about the amazing screen on the Galaxy Note 8, S8 and S8+.
iPhone X, saying that only now OLED screens have become good enough for an iPhone.Samsung is in fact the leader when it comes to OLED screen production with its Super AMOLED displays. It has the most advanced technology and makes the most accurate OLED displays. Even Apple - known for making some truly great-looking screens - opted to use a Samsung OLED screen for its new and most advanced phone to date, the
But this is just not playing nice, Samsung. The timing of this new ad is surely no coincidence, and this is a clear jab at Google, a company that is just starting to get serious about making its own hardware. On the other hand, in love and in war, everything is fair, the saying goes. For Samsung and Google, it seems that it's both love and war.

LG-P-OLED, they can't use the name AMOLED. Basically both the same.

Yes, just like a Porsche 911 is basically the same as a VW Beetle. Yes "basically" the same.

Yea Sammy works so hard to make amazing displays...only to be ruined by that horrible interface they call Touchwiz. Plus they shouldn't forget, if it wasn't for Google's Android, they would be nothing!

"Yea Sammy works so hard to make amazing displays...only to be ruined by that horrible interface they call Touchwiz." Ruined in whay way? Definitely not in terms of features:https://youtu.be/kAaA9w_VY_8 Nor everyday usage performance:https://youtu.be/9qfkP36fCFI?t
Nor the unrealistic and useless back-to-back app opening/closing performance:https://youtu.be/8kpD3XCp49o
Nor camera performance:https://youtu.be/bwnSCjyhKuU
Nor battery life performance:https://sck.pm/FHhttps://youtu.be/e-691mHL1tohttps://youtu.be/OfAknufAUjg
So, what exactly is ruined by touchwiz on my Exynos Note 8 that I'm not noticing? Do share.
"Plus they shouldn't forget, if it wasn't for Google's Android, they would be nothing!"
You weren't just born around 2010, were you? 'Cause that'll be the best excuse for you being so ignorant of the loads of other electronics, including mobile phones, Samsung has long been making before android was even a thing. They'd probably have their own OS if android never existed.

I don't get why they say Apple makes some of the best displays? Apple doesn't make displays, they buy them. Maybe they have an in house calibrator but that's about it. Even if they did purchase that Micro OLED company

Still wouldn't buy a Galaxy phone ever again.... I'm waiting on my pre-order (P2XL B/w) and if the display is just to much for me to take I will get the iPhone X there is just no other Android if it's not the pixel that I would buy. Hopefully the display is not that bad though..
