Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017if AMOLED is the best, the question that has been going around for years now is WHY ARE THERE ... moreMate not everyone using it because it is much more expensive than LCD, you literally can't put amoleds on budget phones for price sakes
Screens Maniac, 08 Apr 2017I thinking you are very corect about Sony phones. About tv i cant compare all. But i see Samsu... moreYes it's still almost 99% guaranteed this has the better display than them.
And just about anything released with a display in mass production can vary a little in calibration.
As well as most iPhone white point is off by about 500 points or more sometimes.

The first time I saw the i7+'s display and was totally unimpressed. Dafq it's not even as bright as the XZ could get, and that's by the bright wallpaper. Sony on the other hand, eventhe Xperia X blew my eyes away after seeing its brightness and contrast level. XZ is just on another league of the display quality. S7 Edge sure looks the best, but I can never deal with yellowish whites, and yesh, it was on Basic Mode when I saw it
Screens Maniac, 08 Apr 2017I thinking you are very corect about Sony phones. About tv i cant compare all. But i see Samsu... moreIt can be hard to do that test by eye. I'm pretty sure Sony or any Japanese TV is more color accurate than Samsung which tends to be saturated tok attract costumers in showrooms.
Btw I've seen pictures too where the pixel had better calibrated whites compared to the s8. My z3c also has a slight blueish tint to it but better than most. The s8 isn't a big improvement except for the new aspect ratio
ren122, 07 Apr 2017yeah im not gonna believe this. If you export pictures from your phoen to a calibrated pc you ... moreI thinking you are very corect about Sony phones. About tv i cant compare all. But i see Samsung have bad blue tint white calibration screens on even highest prices tv. Different thing is for LG tv they have good calibration. I think also would be good white point calibration for Sharp Sony Panasonic tv. They keep high quality all time. Well LG G6 and Sony XZ Premium screens still aren't tested. So can say now is S8 good this year. Well if calibration is good not only on this unit because even same models screens calibration can be difference. So if Samsung did this good job with calibration and realease in market like in this screen test would be nice just excellent rezults. Preview demo versions screens white color point calibration was not good and very variate in same S8 S8+ models. So released phones will show all true. So also in these calibration test not specified screen rezolution HD+ FHD+ QHD+. Also question rises that every iPhones generation screen white point calibration test are are worse nor every generation Samsung S models. But I well see that iPhones every year have better calibrated white screen color point. With naked eye. Best and easiest test for everyone. Just take fully white paper and comapre phone screen calibration white color point for your phone screen comparing side by side with opened full white wallpaper in phone screen. Thats it.

yeah im not gonna believe this. If you export pictures from your phoen to a calibrated pc you will see samsung is more innacurate.
also, for those bashing Sony people dont realize they have the best LCD screens and tvs in the world. JDI is ahead of any other in LCD

Sony isn't a br... moreSony is surviving just because of profits it got from camera module division and entertainment division(PS4). Whatever minuscule profits it is getting from mobile division alone isn't enough for their survival. Samsung is just as big a company as Sony. It has got many more profitable ventures now than Sony. Last years profit for Samsung from mobile division is lot more than what Sony managed to get whole year. If not for the Z5 and XZ, Sony would have been in bigger trouble in this segment.
RaghavaZ, 05 Apr 2017If Display Mate praises S8's screen, then Samsung paid it and if it hails iPhone, then it is b... moreLOL especially with only a 3230 mAh battery. And you're right if DisplayMate awarded Sony the title then their fans would be on its pipe.
bigly, 07 Apr 2017They can't even beat whatever the heck iPhone uses, even I'm impressed by it it's probably the... moreSony screen is easy more beautiful than the iPhone display. The iPhone display is just a little more color accurate so it has a technical advantage
Sylvester20007, 05 Apr 2017likewise, but I do not like when the raw data has been doctored as a result of large sums of m... moreI get the argument for DisplayMate getting paid by other companies to carry out the tests, but why would they jeopardize their very business model by falsifying their data? I'm sure others can duplicate the tests and get similar results.
NokiaBeast, 06 Apr 2017Well, in fact, they are indeed surviving. Not only surviving, but doing great. Sony isn't a br... moreLOL they're both huge companies, if Sony's mobile division was a separate company it would've failed by now. I don't know how many more stagnant quarters they can take or how much more money they can keep pumping into it. As for Samsung they're too smart and resource heavy to ever fail unless they stop being receptive to what the people want, as of right now they know that the future trend will be bezel-less phones just like they predicted edge screens would become more popular and they have.
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2017Sony can't even beat the OLED legend. They can't even beat whatever the heck iPhone uses, even I'm impressed by it it's probably the best LCD display out there.
SLR2099, 05 Apr 2017Note 7 doesn't count as it was a failure to begin with. Xz was announced and was showcased at ... moreThe Note 7 existed and was released before it was recalled so it counts, and the S8 Duo is debuting this month whereas the XZP won't even come out till all the other competitors releases theirs and thus subsequently will be forgotten about and lost in a sea of smartphones.
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2017Sony posts record damages in her mobile division. Sometimes I wonder how they've survived thus... moreWell, in fact, they are indeed surviving. Not only surviving, but doing great. Sony isn't a brand that easily goes down. It's a mountain brand - go up, then fall down, then go up again, and down, and so on.
Samsung, when fail, means total fail. Sony, on the other hand, when fail, they do their best to step up.
Samsung Galaxy S8 has the Â“best smartphone displayÂ”, DisplayMate concludes
"Netflix: sorry, our UHD streams don't support the Galaxy S8 or LG G6 HDR displays for now."
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2017Sony can't even beat the OLED legend. Jdi should be able to. And Sony is part of the alliance.
Unless samsung starts rapidly improving they may have some large competition
SpooderPotato, 06 Apr 2017And what makes you think a fully charged S8 non plus cannot survive 3h of VR movie? On my Note... moreYeah, you are forced to take a break. Let's just say you are going for a series marathon. You don't have a tv, only your laptop and the vr setup on the phone. Not using vr doesn't really use that much power, you are right in that. But as soon you put on the glasses, it drains power like having diarrhea. If sammy at least put a 4000+ battery in it. And the s7 edge would have lost about 8% with your usage. Note 7 was badly made too. Sammy is focusing a lot more design than logically, just like Apple. But a lot of people watch movies or series a lot longer than the battery can last.
