AMOLED display has a way wider contrast ratio and does not require a light source or any panes of glass. AMOLED screens consist of a thin layer of organic polymers that light up when zapped with an electric current. AMOLED displays can produce black so deep that the pixels can shut right off, so on AMOLED displays keeping your background close to black will save energy.

I've seen a Galaxy S2 and S3 at the highest brightness and they still looked pretty dim compared to my lame old Optimus at the lowest brightness setting! However, power consumption may be an issue! On the other hand my Samsung HD LED monitor looks pretty bright even in the lowest power saving modes! Wonder why can't they make their AMOLED/OLED screens brighter while offering power savings!

That doesn't seem to fit in the leaked cases. Phone in pic is long and thin while case is short and wide

funny to see bunch of kids here crying for Amoled display and octa core soc
1) both displays are good as they known for better saturation, contrast,viewing angles etc.i would prefer SOLUX
2)Octa core doesnt use its 8 cores simultaneously ,either one of Four A15 or A7 cores will be active always.its just meant for reduce battery consumption, and snapdragon 600 will reduce the fragmentation too so i would prefer S600.

SoLux is a patented light source that provides an unparalleled replication of natural daylight. Use of SoLux in many of the world's top museums including the Musee d'Orsay, Van Gogh, and Guggenheim Museum is testament to its unmatched color quality. SoLux also has eight times the life and twice the efficiency of standard incandescent sources, does not contain the mercury found in fluorescent lights sources, and is a fraction of the cost of LED sources.

Samsung is good in spec and the best speed beast. but when coming to build quality, refined design and innovation, i think it needs to boost up a lot in order to totally own 99% of the market.

If the galaxy s IV has snapdragon and not exynos 5 with mali 658 there is no big reason to get it over the htc one or the sony xperia z....

so many hating trolls. take down the biggest tree in the forest is whats going on here. first they didn't become this sucessful by making cheap, low quality, over priced phones. they are sucessful because they make innovative, high quality products. that is why htc,sony,moto,hawaii?,zit,and other chinese knockoff companies don't even mount to the same market share as good ol Samsung! Samsung has been making phones longer than anybody else. included apple, excluding sony.

Samsung should improve on the physical properties of their products. I have the galaxy s 3 and in less than one year the phone has lost it's beauty. The screen is already shattered from a small fall. The back cover also is in a bad shape. As samsung is looking at improving the software in the S4 they should also work on the hardware for a more qualitative product.
