SID expo 2013: Galaxy S4 display has the widest color gamut, Samsung demos 13.3" panel with 3200x1800 pixels

The Society of Information Displays expo is where each year the latest and greatest in display tech is showcased, and what would it be without the Korean juggernauts.
After LG demonstrated a flexible OLED with plastic substrate, Samsung flaunted three display sizes - about 5, 10 and 13 inches. The Galaxy S4's Full HD 4.99" Super AMOLED panel, it turns out, covers the widest color gamut of any mobile screen - 94% of the Adobe RGB color space, which is much wider than the standard sRGB gamut those displays are typically measured against.
Of course, this all might be just a way to say OLED's colors are oversaturated for the sRGB gamut, which screen purists are aware of, but fit well within the wider Adobe RGB space, just a matter of yardstick.
The 10.1" display bears 2560 x 1600 pixels of resolution, while the 13.3" screen flaunts the breathtaking 3200 x 1800 pixels, making for a record pixel density, larger than the 13" MacBook Pro with Retina, for instance. The larger panels have 30% less power requirements than the typical LCDs due to the decreased number of driver circuits and improved LED backlight efficiency.

I really like my sister's Galaxy S 4 display over my Nexus 4's. Nexus 4 just looks a little washed out when watching videos. Will pick up a Google Galaxy S 4 June 26.

MORE colors doesn't necessarily means oversaturation, AMOLED can display some existing colors other displays can't. The S4 movie mode is quite accurate on the RGB scale (DisplayMate) and AMOLED is excellent for multimedia content and power consumption, and let's face it, pictures, videos, games, that's why you need a stunning display, and that's where say an Xperia Z comes up very short. The reason ppl. still call an S4 oversaturated is cause they are used to washed out colors on displays.

No. Actually it's because the s4 is oversaturated. I checked out the 1 & s4 at tmobile. Idk how anyone can look at the screen & say colors are anywhere near realistic. There are some advantages to amoled (I had the galaxy nexus until recently) But the display on the 1 is more natural. Instead of looking like a cartoon

The One is not more natural than the S4. The S4 on display mode can be changed to Adobe RGB which brings more natural colors than even the One's LCD 3 or the LG's IPS LCD can produce. Most reviewers just don't know what they are talking about when it comes to AMOLED technology anymore.

Meanwhile amoled screens continue to struggle with simple colours such as grey and white (not blue and purple)

Yes organic diodes can create more shades of colours than a flashlight and a red, green, blue paper, which is all LCD is. It doesn't take a scientists to realize that. The problem is the people like meddici37 being too used to seeing colour created that way that anything is too jarring for them. It is harder to calibrate when you have too many shades to choose from though.....

I have to say that the screen on the S4 is the most vivid and clearest I have seen on a device. Samsung really knows how to make displays Just like Nokia knows how to make cameras and HTC knows about designs, Put them all together and you would have a superphone. Lol anyway Amoled in, my opinion( keywords- my opinion) is superior to LCD. but that being said I find that the display ( superLCD3) on the HTC one actually very good at producing Black ( not as perfect as the S4 but very Good) its colors are fabulously natural ( but the S4 can also tone down it's hue pops with its display modes giving very natural colors as well) so to me I have to give props to Samsung for producing incredible displays. No doubt about them being the absolute kings here.
