Anonymous, 15 Feb 2013GS2 was RGB not Pentile. Did you really own the GS2? No really? I believe him. Sgs2 has low ppi and the giant pixels can easily be mistaken for Pentile for those who have a somewhat moderate knowledge of cellphone tech terms. For sure the xperia U must have been amazingly sharp when he came from Sgs2, higher resolution in a much smaller display.
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2013Yes, all AMOLED displays are defective with color banding and clipping. The PPI of Note 2 ... moreAbsolute nonsense. Never had any issue with GS1 and now GS3. One of the main reasons I buy Galaxy S series is for the gorgeous Samoleds.

Costs are high due to the ... morewell, you're right, it's not crap. but it's a bit pricey. i got a sammy 7.0 plus tab and i want this as main phone. hope it get's cheaper soon. this looks reliable like the k610i i had for 5 years.

This news story needs correction. Phone house Germany is now selling Sony Xperia ZL for 549.99, and Xperia Z for 649.99 inclusive of VAT.
Interestingly you can purchase Xperia Z for only 529.99 (including VAT) from EXPANSYS UK. If you live outside Europe and the VAT is not applicable on you, then you can get it for 442 only plus delivery charges.

It's then obvious that you can't tell the difference between Pentile and RGB.
I bought a Galaxy SII in the end of 2011 with great expectations. I prefered SII over iPhone coz the former was cheaper. And ofcourse all those +ve reviews played a big role for buying SII.
I should say it didn't let me down. But I didn't like one of its biggest selling point - the display. The color looks artificial on it. The pentile matrix was a big let down. The display used to get very hot after browsing the net for sometime. 99% time I use my smartphone for browsing net. And for talking I use a Nokia feature phone.
I find GSMarena always highlight lesser viewing angle of display as a negative point. But I couldn't disagree more. Rather it is great advantage for the user. We always hold phone directly infront of our eyes. Who wants to share their screen in a public place?
Anyhow after six months I dumped SII in favour of Sony Xperia U. despite some limitations I am happy with it. And from my
experience I can tell you that Sony would conquer the mobile world again.
NB: display would play a big part in a smartphone's success. cause we are using more time on looking at the phone than talking.

It will forever change the way: how people communicate with each other, how people take the photo, how people listen to music & watching video, how people read news/books, how people surf internet and get connect with social network, how people share photos...etc
"the ppi of note 2 is very low..."
r u mad? your beloved iphone had lower ppi when it launched. same for the ipad. wat world do u guys live in? retina is nice but overhyped, s2 has 220 ppi n sold like anything!
Common_636, 14 Feb 2013My opinion though is yes Sony is rising, but... in this era we living in, most flagships carri... moretrue but it is better to have a hardware features that can give exclusive to company brand rather than software. cause if you buy a phone it is hard to modify the innovative or feature product in the hardware aspect. but in softwares just like samsung smart feature, you can get it as long as the hardware supports it. go to google playstore and download it. And besides hardware features if ever it has perform not good the software can support it and fix it without giving your phone to the service center just like updates, or install software like example sony xperia T camera, if you dont like it get a camera 360 apps or some other program enhancement.
so in this aspect Z is worth to buy cause what lacks of this product is software optimization. Hardware features from exmor r down to processor performance up to product design. its all been packed great satisfaction.
