Most probably they really deserve the title. So well done and keep it up to Samsung, fantastic display.
Ciro76, 05 Apr 2017Display mate es un FAKE. Only Write what Samsung sends you along with a bag of dollarshow do you think samsung explain that bag of money in their books being handed out without any record of where it went? They would get ripped for that in their end of year Financial Audits.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017It would have been even better if it was normal 16:9! 18.5:9 with a long 5.8 inches diagonal i... moreYes, but form factor is better with this ratio, it is a phone, not a TV.
Ohh, any most movies are 21:9 ratio, so thing brings you a bigger movie image in comparison.
But, I will concede that those who watch TV shows on a phone will be a little disappointed as all TV shows are filmed in 16:9 for broadcasting reasons.
Shannon., 05 Apr 2017i cant reply because gsmarena blocks my comments I call BS. If you are not using profanity or being offensive then you just said that GSMA are also in on the game and are stopping you from getting the truth out that they are trying to hide.
Paranoid much, or just lie a bit?
Why would they let you post something that says they are blocking you if they were blocking you....
Shannon., 05 Apr 2017true, Samsung has payed display mate If Display Mate praises S8's screen, then Samsung paid it and if it hails iPhone, then it is bought by Apple......and if it does the same for Sony, all hail Display Mate. Can you tell me according to you which screen is best then? How did you come to a conclusion? Share your results please. We will get to know. As far as i am concerned 4K screens are an overkill for mobiles now.
AzureLord, 05 Apr 2017and then in the res selector you can have 4 options. HD, FHD, QHD and 4K. and when you're not ... moreYeah, in theory it works, but not so much in practice, as per GSMAs findings.
I think this would be more noticeable when playing games on a phone for prolonged periods as it it needs to use more power to render more pixels (assuming the app is frame locked).
Joselius, 05 Apr 2017Shut up. It is the only most competitive mobile vr device. I dont see other brand with their o... moreGear VR is fine, but Samsung phones are not good enough for VR. But hopefully XZ premium will work fine with new gear VR!
RaghavaZ, 05 Apr 2017Simple reason: high quality OLEDs are costly to produce. And there are only few manufacturers ... moreYou are correct except apple is only charging that much more because they can. It will be another slight bump in profit for them
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017What about sony's 4kIt will be gorgeous and most people won't know any better without side by side or seeing the test results.
Shannon., 05 Apr 2017Samsung has payed display mate for ranking the device, witch basically the note 7 + s7
if th... moreGo and check your spelling and Grammar.
Its electronic testing, not human eye testing in DisplayMate. Even angles of viability are done via a camera and sense.
Tsuki, 05 Apr 2017Everything is paid if you're a haterwell said, my friend..
" We have no doubt that the Galaxy S8 can carry the title of the Â“best smartphone display on the market " - GSM ARENA
The only people who will doubt it are the people who bough a phone from other manufacturer.
One question for those jelly haters.. Then why Apple, Samsung's biggest rival would order display from them only??
there is sony 4k true hdr right? lol.. Why noy?? coz its bad
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017DisplayMate is just another paid/sponsored reviewer.Everything is paid if you're a hater
Sterben, 05 Apr 2017Sony and LG have...No they haven't go read Display Mates previous display tests.
The S5 display was rated as THE best display on a Mobile Device
The Note 4 overtook it.
Then when S6 came out that overtook it.
Amoleds have always been the best yes they have problems but so do LCD no tech is perfect.
I have owned 4 or Samsung devices in the last 6 years and not even 1 had screen burn or ghosting.
LCD's can never compete but keep trying :D
Sylvester20007, 05 Apr 2017Just because some people do not use VR, does not mean those who do should not have the option.... moreand then in the res selector you can have 4 options. HD, FHD, QHD and 4K. and when you're not using the 4K display. you can lower res to preserve battery. Interesting concept.
Sterben, 05 Apr 2017S5 has a QHD variant with SD805yes but the standard SM-G900x Variants? the SM-G906S is not an international device y'know. ^^;
CSR, 05 Apr 2017not all people ar using vr..as us said just an improvement but totally pointless for mostJust because some people do not use VR, does not mean those who do should not have the option.
Make 2 versions of the S8, one with 4K and the other not, people will buy both, I would buy 4K not for VR, but because you do not need to see each pixel, or not as the case is, to "see" a difference, it is about the overall image, not the detail you can't see. There is a small discernible difference that once can see between 2.5k and 4k, you can not put a finger on it, but you will see it.
For this reason, I think it does have a place for some, albeit a small number of people who care about the image, the rest are ones who love to be in the pixel race.
