yym, 04 May 2017oled is overrated, i've have/had several devices (phones/tablets) with oled, and in my opinion... moreYou forgot tey flexiable hence why you can curve them unlike LCD.
Also they more battery efficient than LCD's because they always need a backlight.
Anonymous , 28 Apr 2017Because Apple made this deal before this happens, lol. Apple will not make any contract with ... moreSo samsung is usless and other companies need to catch up with the useless Samsung?? LOL do you hear yourself??
A company can not be useles if others need to catch up to it and if Apple need Samsung.
If anything it makes Apple useless and remaks them rely on samsung.
oled is overrated, i've have/had several devices (phones/tablets) with oled, and in my opinion they are very bad:
+ the only advantage for them is deeper black, and better contrast ( no, no infinite contrast, black is not true 0 black, but close)
+ they are thinner than LCD displays ->thinner phones/tablets
- color reproduction is poor, images are over saturated not natural
- color resolution is best at maximum brighness, al low or minimum brighness color resolution suffers a lot (you have like 4..5bit color resolution)
- terrible ghosting effect at low brightness, dark scenes
- screen burn effect, pixels age unevenly, in time, smooth gradients look like they have pixel noise in them mostly visible at low brighness, dark scenes
for @ KaneJ & Others - No , your not completely correct , LED whether PLS or IPS LCD have more realistic colours than OLED , yes but in all other parameters OLED is way ahead -
sAMOLED has way way better contrast ratio & way better sunlight legibility , higher colour gamut , saturated colours ( Some prefer it ) than LCD & more brightness than LCD infact LCD cant match in RAW brightness , thats because of poor contrast ratio & other factor.
AMOLED is like a candle wick , the chemical molecule will eventually degrade giving off colours , but most users wont notice the difference , this normally starts happening after 2 years of usage , unlike LCD which wont darken or lose colours as early & easily as the backlight has good life. The problem is users normally might view static content on mobile causing burn - in unlike in OLED TV's , in short no static means longer life ( Thats why we dont have OLED laptop / desktop monitors as wallpapers are static )
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2017Except it happens to ips too. And amoled has more accuracy and advantages.
So your point mak... more
IPS more natural/realistic colours, generally far brighter and better viewing angles.
Red/yellow and blue tint far less visible than AMOLED...
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2017It was just over 1000. Not 1300. That's exaggerated Right i think figure was 1100 + nits, basically they checked with one white dots, like home button unlike in gsmarena where they checked in broad sunlight, full screen with website on which came to max 647 nits. BTW "NATURE OF OLED DISPLAY" Next time it will be exploding s8 "nature of samsung"
- not that it will happen ;)
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2017Lol "nature of AMOLED" nice joke samsungTrue! They are making an excuse again
GSMArena in there review has removed the Myth of Max Brightness at 1300 nits to 647 nits in real life ( Thats an good improvement over 610 nits of S7 Edge ) , but not over inflated like on other websites , again for S8 samsung has put more Red Pixel in Matrix as called RedOLED display by Samsung , all is to increase life of sAMOLED display as Red LED dont burn faster , but the Constant Navigation Bar is going to burn in on S8 just like it did on Nexus Navigation bars including the constant ON Home BUtton of S8.
As you can see, the images attached was LDU or live demo unit it was used in stores as display. The actual unit that you will recieve will not be like that.
"Samsung says nature of AMOLED displays causes red tint"...The best of ... JOKE .... to the year 2017. ..:)
Engage ELECTRONISTS and INFORMATICS OF VALUES , gentlemen from Samsung.
The color tone is given by the MATERIAL with defects or the software of on the device (on this earth, not on the ... Moon)
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2017At least samsung is proactive to fix the issue.
Not like Apple which reluctantly refuses to ... more1. This is an article about Samsung's S8, WHY did you have to even bring in Apple into this matter?
2. I can not find more than 3-4 cases about iPhone batteries catching fire that have been republished on the internet hundreds of times, and you are comparing with Samsung's S8 of which 4 out of 10 Galaxy S8 (40%) have red tint and who's millions Note 7 have been recalled because of life-threatening exploding batteries? Sorry to break this to you, but you're a total Samsung zombie!
At least samsung is proactive to fix the issue.
Not like Apple which reluctantly refuses to order a recall of their battery in iPhone's catching fire.
