jesse.clark, 24 Apr 2017You are just proving yourself more and more stupid, Retina display means nothing, its nothing ... moreNo it means exactly what it was defined to mean "the type of display that offers a view of indistinguishable pixels when viewed from 10-12 inches to a user with a 20/20 sight". That's very specific and concise, so instead of writing all that I just called retina any display that fullfills that criteria. Stop being triggered any time you hear a term that was invented from Apple.
Similarly infinity display probably has a concise meaning, it merely happens to be a useless concept to use in any conversation (nobody needs to know whether his display is infinity display).
BTW I only used the term BECAUSE I didn't want to have to type all this, the fact that I did type it eventually is very telling of the level of discussion which is very unfortunate.
There is no doubt that this time Samsung has brought tremendous change in design, and pre-installed application. Though, these apps are good enough to give kick-start to your mobile experience. But still one needs more apps to make it more useful, and joyful too. I've found an interesting lists of apps featuring some of very useful apps, and I thought that I should share them here. Here is the list of apps for S8 and S8+
I've found them quite useful, and hope that it would benefit you guys as well. Cheers!
jesse.clark, 24 Apr 2017You are just proving yourself more and more stupid, Retina display means nothing, its nothing ... moreNot --officially-- but Apple's choice of that PPI was in relation to the effect he mentions, and since then we've basically adopted the term to mean that point. People do say "it's a retina display", and while they're technically wrong, what they mean is the definition he gave above, even if they're not directly aware of what caused the term to apply.

I also need a comparison before buying this.

It's just a marketing term like Samsung's infinity display and no other phone except iphone use this the word retina display. Samsung display with 570 ppi is much more sharper than a 326 ppi iPhone, and Samsung S8 has a qhd display while iphone 7 is still partial HD.

I was not even referring to Apple , that Samsung fanboy thought that I did because he is triggered by anything non-Samsung. What I said is that S4 was the last great upgrade in S screen's quality.
The one that made the jump to retina level (Google it, don't make me repeat what retina quality means) and since then it's diminishing returns.
For example S4 vs S1 is day and night. S8 vs S4 are actually very similar when you select photo mode and don't go for the unrealistic colours that S8's screen allow.
It's part of the greater theme that Samsung Started with S6: small upgrades between phones and only after 3 or 4 generations are enough differences made to make upgrade tenable.
For example S8 is using about the same pixel density for 4th generation in a row, despite it being cr*p for VR. Samsung does not care to evolve at this point, they care to make money with as few changes as possible...

I called it a neologism and you thought I was talking about a new technology. A neologism is a word used that disallows you from using many words at once. Using the word retina disallows me to have to use the following "a screen where individual pixels cannot be distinguished when viewed from 11 to 12 inches using 20/20 vision" ... see it was simpler o use the wOrd retina than the above?
*Everybody* knew what I was talking about , only you didn't. For example you thought I was talking about a new technology while I was merely talking of a feature of the human technology. I used one word so that to not have to write 2 full posts (as I eventually did), I'm at my patience's limit. Please don't make me repeat myself at nauseum.
Galaxy S4 owned the first retina amoled on a popular consumer electronic device. And -no- retina was not the new technology, the screen was/is. It means that Amoled screen (with S4) reached the PPI limit, any further upgrade to it was mostly useless and actually one that even Samsung does not use (current S phones run at 1080p out of the box), pretty much proving apple's theory.
Improving PPI to anything more than 300 (420 in pentile stripe amoleds) is mostly useless and inadvisable, which is also why Apple didn't do it, why Samsung reverted to 1080p, why many refuse to move to QHD, why Sony jumped directly to 4k (4k may he useful for VR) and why S4 had the last great jump in screen quality (also why S screens have progressively fewer and fewer upgrades).
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2017According to Apple, retina is still king in 2017.Yeah with 750p and 326 ppi... Why not?

However, as the gsmarena picture comparison shows, note 4 DOES have slightly better outdoor pictures in bright light. A lower aperture and more mpx make that happen. So if you mostly take nature pictures like I do, then the Note 4 is better. However, I still have my Nokia 808 for that which is 10 times better for that, and my S7 for low light.

Apple defined the term perfectly, we're you not paying attention?
Yes it's a neologism which was invented to disallow people from typing everything that I just did, you just refer to it and people instantly realize what you are talking about ... apart from some Samsung geniuses as it turns out ... for them you have to type the whole shebang and constantly explain to them every last term 'cause they're so deeply confused about everything (else they wouldnt give blind alegiance to a refrigerator company)
