Some Galaxy S6 edge fronts appear scratched out of the box, displays show funky colors
posted by Daniel P. / Apr 06, 2015, 2:30 AM
The S6 edge has a proprietary 3D thermoformed Gorilla Glass 4 at the front, which has been heated and bent sideways to wrap around the flexible AMOLED with plastic substrate that makes the dual edge display of the unique flagship. That still doesn't explain why some units come pre-scratched out of the box, and others don't, though, so it might be a batch problem. As if to back this suspicion up, a picture has emerged that shows a gap in color representation from a scratched to a non-scratched Galaxy S6 edge, with the image post-processed to show quite a visible difference for even the untrained eye.
So far the issue seems to be mostly with T-Mobile models, of course, as no other carrier is shipping the S6 edge yet, but the sample is still too small for this to be called a thing, or considered widespread. Have you noticed your brand new Galaxy S6 edge looking like a weathered display unit yet?

This thing has to do with manufacturing issues more than screen panel. I've seen faulty TFTs, faulty IPS and faulty AMOLEDs. That doesn't mean one screen is better. Regarding white point, I guess S6 is the closest to the reference D65 whites among all phones. You need to up your trolling game.

Note 4 has best screen, best camera in Android camp, and also durable as tank.... Not to mention seen and it's functions... Makes note the best phone or phablet's in the market.. Tell me a thing about your huwaei which is best in at least one department....

oh my god .. a huawei fanboy ? do they really exist ?! are you saying that an LCD panel is better in dark areas than an AMOLED ??!! really ?? do you know what is the contrast of an AMOLED display? are aware what are you saying? are you in good mentalist condition ?! OLD amoled generation are known for there color inaccuracy and IPS were in the lead in that area and white color as well (but not black) but since the note 3 .. everything has changed "the WORST screen type i EVER met with !! There is NO above/better than IPS ! (JDI IPS) nice bright , whites are whites no blue or yellow (as on sam mobiles , and other ones with non IPS) IPS rules !! IT IS A MUST !!" are you still living in 2011 ?! IPS is failing miserably against the new AMOLED gen, and by that youtube video you posted i can say for sure that you are still living in 2011 .. "nonsene? am always say truth i know truth hurts.. ppl hate truth" lool what truth ?! since the note 3 and S5 the amoled took the lead in every single department the IPS LCD shined in, color accuracy, screen brightness, white, can you add more ?? can you put your crappy huawei phone against the s5 (in basic mode) side by side and take a VERTICAL picture and compare the white color then another picture comparing the black ?? i bet you dont have the guts to even try to ! wake up huawei kid .. it is 2015 .. LCD is really lagging behind AMOLED these days (if really can notice) and by the way, the way you talk clearly tells that you are employed and paid by huawei, it is very very clear "You know why bcos they are paid by them funded" prove it or shut up .. at least prove that displaymate is paid by samsung .. and considering that alpha picture, can you put it in basic mode and take the same picture but vertical ?? dont try to fool us kid .. you are taking the picture from an angle .. do you think we are really stupid ?? and stop spreading misleading info, that is not helping huawei in anything just another thing .. are you fully aware that the article is talking about a FACTORY DEFECT units? and not a phone in its perfect condition ?

In your dreams.... IPhone 5 to had these kinda problems at start.. What would you say about it then??? Use a latest high end Galaxy.... And u will see whites are nice.. And also I challenge you to show a I'M screen with pure black as in amoled.... And also brightness is no problem because amoled always use to be good under sunlight... Which is where high brightness comes to use....

I can't believe anyone is judging display quality on the auto-brightness. That's the ONLY possible reason for a seemingly dark display on a Note 4. Unfortunately, Samsung's auto setting has always sucked and the best way to use it is turned off when using the phone inside and turned on when outside. It's unfortunate that they haven't done a better job with the auto setting but it has absolutely nothing to do with display quality.
