Today Lcd screen have already surpass the amoled screen. Samsung still think it amoled is the best. Suck it. No sharpness in the amoled screen. The colour are not natural at all. Rubbish screen. I will go to xperia z or htc one. N btw. Dont judging the xperia screen have low contrast. Coz it had a screen protector right out of the box. Peel it off then judging it..

"The Galaxy S IV is clearly the most pleasant screen out of the bunch."

It really doesn't look that way for me, it only looks darker than the rest.

why does XZ display looks better in all the images?
Is it just to me or to others also ?

S4 display looks overly saturated and extra-done contrasts! so much that you can't see the hair of the child in the pic, it all looks black.
Not so impressed with the display this time, Sammy.

I don't know what the reviewer is looking at. The Sony looks the best to me, and especially in the last example where the reviewer states that the SIV is the "most pleasant". What a generic adjective. I challenge you to explain why it is better.
I will never understand the comparision of screens with a picture taken with a camera as the basis for judgement. Nothing can replace getting your hands and eyes on the phones next to each other.
