Oh what a joke, they have the worst displays, the ugliest in terms of looks, this industry is an utter joke. My Sony Xperia Z Ultra completely outclasses any samsung phone in every ingle department so you can have all the awards you want, doesn't mean anything at all.
While the # of subpixel counts on AMOLED vs LCD may be different the fact remains that the iPhone 6 can't even display an 1080p picture. You need the iPhone 6+ for that.
Average joe thinks the 6 is a 1080p screen and the 6+ is a 'high' dpi screen.
The comparison is similar to the PS4 1080p vs Xbox1 900p scenario where everything is equal except screen resolution. The average joe consumer thinks ("it's only 180p!") when in reality the overall resolution is 20% less pixels.
Simply put, Samsung (and Sony) are producing higher quality screens at higher resolutions. Apple and Microsoft are not as 'close' as they 'appear' to be in terms of 'high resolution'.

darkraver, 11 Mar 2015Nope, just samsung basher :-)
Anyways I see reality as it is...mostly, but you, you are just... moreAs if I stick to the same phone for more than two years.
Current using S4 Advance, Note 2 4G and Optimus G Pro.
All great devices but soon to be replaced again.
Have to say love this site's honest. Your integrity cannot be questioned. Reason:Saw this report yesterday and other sites made it seem like s6 was superior ( obviously for page views) upon reading the article on these sites the conclusion was the heading of this article now on this site. Kudos to GSM arena
DNS, 11 Mar 2015Displaymate is clueless. AMOLED is cute and shiny but it does not stand a chance against a hig... moreI also have a G2 and although it is probably in the top 5 IPS LCD displays on smartphones it sucks compared to the Note 4.
To watch scans/movies with black 0cd/m2 is great. And u can use that to turn off pixels with black to save battery...
There was one thing that Amoled was bad at, brightness.
Note4 got 400...,compare it to iPhone's 740cd...
S6 got 600cd and thats better than older samsung Amoleds/LCDs.
"The Galaxy S6 has more than double the resolution and more than 4 times the number of pixels as the iPhone 6."
You know DisplayMate is a Samsung marketing partner when it fails to tell you AMOLED have far less subpixel than LED so QHD AMOLED only have 20% more subpixel than 1080p LCD instead of the marketed 100% more.
Ethos-Evoss, 11 Mar 2015I would say the best display is JDI IPS .. Why these sites says ONLY for iphone best? Just b... moreand if they have the same display as iPh, why would anyone compare with those almost "no-name" products from almost "no-name" OEMs instead of Apple's? let's face it, sales numbers matter the most in the end, and I dare you to compare those what's their names (!) sales with the rotten fruit's
Reliable Russian, 11 Mar 2015Not really true colours.

Display mate won't give the best display title if it's oversatured. They even mention that it's the most accurate/ true to life display on smartphone.
p-chan, 11 Mar 2015Lol, you're so ignorant. Amoled = true to color, crisper, brighter, less consume battery = bes... moreNot really true colours. Some colours are over-saturated, but it doesn't affect the overall viewing experience though.
I would say the best display is JDI IPS ..
Why these sites says ONLY for iphone best?
Just bcos it is most expensive?
And bcos it is just apple?
Naive and pathetic..
Honor 6 and huawei p7has most brightest IPS panels !
And it is EXACTLY same IPS as you find in iphones.. !
very impressive. this is good news for samsung. it means they are definitely on the right track.
I'm not surprised. Because we all know, Samsung has the best display and technology. Even haters know it.
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2015You are hilarious, amoled are no match to IPS panel, display mate is just pro Samsung. IPS ... moreLol, you're so ignorant. Amoled = true to color, crisper, brighter, less consume battery = best display. Meanwhile IPS LCD= dimmer, color seem washout, battery drainer since lcd used back lighting. That worse battery performance on LG G3 tell us more.
ithehappy, 11 Mar 2015I agree with one thing though, AMOLED do suffer from burn in problems. Well I have enough brai... more"I mean who uses a phone for more than three years anyway? "
I do, my old S2 has been in service for almost 4 years and practically shows no burn in issues, even on a blank 50% grey background (where it should be worst).
I'm not saying there are no phones that suffer from it, because there are. But without statistics and a direct relation to usage (retina scorching maximum brightness indoors all the time for example) and an evaluation of the latest (Note 4 and S6) in this regard, there isn't much to say.
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2015You are hilarious, amoled are no match to IPS panel, display mate is just pro Samsung. IPS ... moreThat was true until the S5 where AMOLED truly surpassed IPS LCD. I have a G2 and have compared it to the Note 4, it doesn't stand a chance. Note 4 has better colour gamma, much higher contrast and more accurate whites, not to mention much better sunlight legibility and viewing angles (from the sides, the LCD on G2 only has near perfect viewing angles viewed from front and back). Apart from this, saturation can be adjusted to your liking, and the glass has a coating which doesn't get as greasy as on the G2 so pictures don't look a bit smudged.

IPS ... moreIPS can't even cover the Adobe RGB gamut yet, (AM)OLED can and does in the S6 (if desired). The maximum (true to life) visible (for humans) gamut is still larger than the Adobe RGB one (which covers little over 50%, your typical mobile IPS panel about 35%)...
