RedAndy, 21 Jun 2014You can't tell the difference from 1.7m on a 42inch between 4k and FHD let alone QHD res on a ... moreActually, you can tell the difference. So, please spreading nonsense.
The same was said for 1080p vs 720p on a 42" TV. Those that had 1080p on a 42" could see the difference. Those that didn't get 1080p wanted to feel better about themselves and not have buyers remorse, so they perpetuated this myth that 1080p on a 42" was useless.
Nowadays, who buys 720p?
Nice, Samsung's product range is so good, they've got a pair of Sony XBA-H3 in that ad.
You can't tell the difference from 1.7m on a 42inch between 4k and FHD let alone QHD res on a 5-5.5 inch screen. It's plain and simple utterly unuseful, unless you watch the screen through a microscope, in that case you might see all pixels. Not even S810 with his Adreno 440/450 gpu would not be able to improve much in benchmarks on a res like that, because it's just to big and to power hungry. You can see in the results of these benchmarks the lack of power on a such res. Just imagine a smartphone with s805/s810 and a FHD, not only will it fly but you will be able to go on mars. I just hope they will get some sense in that head of theirs and leave alone that res for tv'a bigger than 42'' and give us that powerfull chipset on a Fhd res. But i bet that i hope in vain.
why QHD? not only does QHD consumes more power, it also puts burden on the processors..not to mention the cost, and you can't really tell the difference between 400+ and 500+ppi... just saying.
gadgetjunkie, 21 Jun 2014That's the magic of snapdragon 805. Now I would like to see a FHD phone with the same chip :) i wanna see hd phone with same chip.
the backcover was the reason they fired the last chief designer, they will fire the new one again.

strategi, 21 Jun 2014New back panel? Why? Lol.Are you in love with plasters?
In my opinion QHD screens are not as useful unless the screen is 7" or greater as you can't fit a greater battery on an around 5" screen and GPus consume a lot of power just driving these displays.
strategi, 21 Jun 2014New back panel? Why? Lol.Same reason why apple are making bigger screens, nokia are making android phones, lg pads and phoneslook like samsung from the front, and tthey're all making minis and phablets all of a sudden.yo samsung go samsung whooooah samsung. Lol.
Could have been better it maintains full hd display so adreno 420 plus 3GB of ram could manage to be the best phone with best graphics in the world. Adreno 420 in a full hd screen can be a beast for games!!!
The original dotted back pattern was ok when looked at in person, in my opinion. It was just akward to look at if was in gold color, with those band aid jokes. This diamond pattern may offer more grip though. Lucky koreans... But i wouldn't envy the battery life though
I absolutely agree % with you (GSMArena) well done, keep it up!
