Sony sends invites for IFA event, is it Honami's turn to go official? - read the full textWith the Xperia Z Ultra (Togari) out of the way, Sony is gearing up for a new event, which will take place at the IFA premises but will take place two days before the exhibition opens to the public.

The buses thing had nothing to do with nit picking.
Amoled is improved oled ,ips is improved LCD,ips panels are used in larger displays commonly,so is oled,but not amoled,that's what I meant by that
Oversaturation in amoled is commonly noted to a tad further extend than lack of contrast in LCD.
But the difference is comparison is irrelevant for practical use.
I'm not returning to this page again to reply to you.

My point is this:movie mode has cooler WB.Then how can,it make images look more natural than LCD which also has higher color gamut and accuracy.

In Movie mode it's not as perfect, but still good. It's overall color balance is not 100% perfect, but very close and very accurate. I already have stated I'm not talking about just test results but the screen in person too. Yes even skin tone looks great on S4 in Movie mode. And the entire screen is overall way way way more realistic. That is my whole point. Is it 100% perfect? No. But only by the smallest of differences and overall is much better. Where as LCD cannot fully do either.

Then in movie mode,how can skin tone along with other colors look more natural than LCD .Leave the test results aside,I am talking about an S4 I test drove for myself .

It's white balance is not perfect, but the movie mode performance is great. It's colors are extremely accurate, and it's contrasts\blacks are amazing. Skin tones look right because of the fine tuning in it. It's overall way more natural and realistic. It leaves LCD's only advantage being higher brightness which really does not do much. Even then you can just through the Amoled back in another mode under sunlight and in auto brightness it gets brighter than maximum.

Difference of opinion is called contradiction,it doesn't necessarily have to be stating the opposite.
Answer this,how does cool white balance give more realistic colors?Especially skin tone .

And I said they had a more proper white balance. Though that was in RGB mode I believe.
The buses? You seem to be better at banter and nit picking rather than tech

How does cool white balance give more natural images?

It's white balance is good in it's other settings as well. You see plenty of blacks in life. Especially more so than LCD can produce.
LCD is a barely noticeable amount more accurate in colors alone. Just a tad higher than Amoled movie, but the entire Amoled tech plus accurate colors is more true to life.
Stating fact which differs from what you say is not contradicting.

And in the end it anyone I have ever spoken to like Amoled standard as it is anyway. I understand the importance of spot on colors for certain situations of people, but overall most people like the saturation. It's mostly only online haters.
However for the few that care now it's nearly as perfect, but overall more realistic.
I never said what to like or pick either. Just stating fact and correcting the misconceptions.

How often do you see true blacks in life anyway,I never said LCD is better overall or I will prefer amoled to LCD.
If you want to contradict,fine ,I agree.

It has already been stated in every single post that it is not as perfect as LCD. But it's not that it is not natural or realistic. It is just a small hair off the same accuracy. About 3-5% less. And the cooler white balance is closer to the desired mark. It's not the same as it's Dynamic mode white balance. In movie mode it hits about 97% color accuracy, but has blacks and contrast. LCD hits about 100% accuracy, but has no blacks and hopefully ok contrast. The Amoled will look way way more true to life in movie mode that means.

Yes, but again what does that have to do with anything?

Amoled is improved oled which is used in larger display units .

And in fact Samsung, GSMArena, users, and the company that gave Samsung the reward would all say it is natural.

Movie mode is near perfect. No it is not as perfect as LCD, but only in the sense it's 0-5% off. It's a huge improvement not just a slightly improved setting. You keep sounding like a broken record. Look it up instead of sounding so redundant.

It can't be natural because it's Amoled? You sound like a fanboy. And in that same sense LCD is not fully natural either. In movie mode the green follows 100% accuracy while the other colors are within 3-5% 100% accuracy. That is natural. While it also has true blacks, high contrast, and good white balance. It's overall way more natural than LCD. LCD is just about 0%-5% more accurate on a couple colors which almost nobody will be able to notice. Even skin tone will look right.

So both screens are not fully realistic by default. The difference Amoled can be more saturated or more realistic. LCD may never be able to do both.

And duh. IPS is just improved LCD. What a ridiculous comment.

IPS is already being used in LG TVs.

And even in movie mode it's unnatural because it's amoled? And you say Im being the fanboy??????? Look it up yourself instead of being a broken record. In movie mode on the s4 it's nearly perfect color accuracy. But still Amoled so you get blacks and contrast. Even a more proper white balance. Where as LCD can only have natural colors or slightly saturated colors. At best decent contrasts and crappy blacks. It's incapable of being completely natural or very saturated. Where Amoled can do both better. LCD's downfalls are considered unnatural just the same as Amoled's are. But with Amoled it's fixed right in settings and overall more natural.
That's knowing the facts of display not following a company.
