Blacks can't be matched with oled technologies. If people don't make the difference, it's just because they don't need them / want deep contrast. Especially for reading ebooks.

As I said before the my s2 has no issues. Amoled has better viewing angles. So the its pros outweigh the cons. Amoled is superior to ips.

Well there are limitations to every technology. You're correct indeed amoled uses more power when displaying white. But still I like the deep blacks on amoled.

It's no secret that Apple is both efficient for energy and power since they are designing both their OS and architectures. That's common knowledge.
yeah i said it, 11 Mar 2015I wouldn't say ditch , but you can have both iphone and Galaxy 6edge , first question how much... moreI would obviously keep iphone 6 :)
But what I mean, should i spend my money on edge 6, when I already have iphone 6 and the Galaxy s4? I paid a lot of money on iPhone 6 and decided to keep Galaxy s4 for gaming because I enjoy playing gba and ds emulator games. But seeing the edge 6, im falling for the beautiful green design and the touch wiz looks more polished now and I love the multi window view. I want the 64gb since that is how much my iPhone has too, as I like to fill up my music. But those are expensive versions. My friends tell me that I'm getting carried away with it because I already got iphone 6, and a Galaxy s4 to make up for the lack of gaming on iPhone... But honestly everyone is buying this model based on the design these days. I've tried selling the Galaxy s4 in hope of earning some money for the edge 6 but I've only been able to get 130 dollars at most in offers. I do have money enough but just because I have it doesn't mean that I shouldn't think twice about it...

And they got amoled not ips.
And Samsung's got an option to save energy/screen and make the white of pages becoming grey.

-tab z4 with ips gives 17hours of video playback on 6000mah.
-galaxy tab pro10.1 with samoled gives 10 hours of video playback on a 8220mah battery.source-cnet.
and thats the reason ipads have long battery lives

Also I have been on play store and the battery didn't go down by much. So your points are invalid. I have used my phone on full brightness and for 2 hours of use only went down by 4-5%. So please trill more as all you said is invalid.

ips panels on the other hand lose least charge when fully lit.ips use energy more to cover up the light when they go dark.
the whites on ips panels are natural and perfect.and the colors are realistic.

Amoled/oled screens use less power as they don't need backlight and produce natural colors, just to name few advantages over lcd.

pls compare the screen of your primary phone with the control phone after 1year.you will find the difference very starkly
..in short,what i want to be is informative-i donot deny that s6 is a great phone.i just want to show that the amoled screen you are going so gaga about is not as long lasting as you think.i dont understand why people today think that speaking a true fact is trolling.and regarding why its on s6 page-they think they are the trail blazers in oled display tech.so i found it apt to show that its indeed ips that lasts longer not oled..do google-amoled degradation.there are many people who use their phones for years-everyone does not want spend a fortune every year,isnt it?

Results will tell what percentage got degraded since 1st amoled phone got released.
Tech may have its low side, but still, a manufacturer like Samsung got the means and R&D to mass market it in a stable enough way or you would see mass returning of units to stores, etc. No need for science to see that.
in amoled screens-the blue sub pixels deteriorate faster than all other subpixels.the colors degrade in this order :blue, green,
and then red.even though pentile system is used in amoleds,yet it is only to reduce the size of blue subpixels that always tend to degrade faster.but still self degrade it does..reducing the size of blue subpixels only delays the inevitability. so eventhough you may not get a burn in -the amoleds tends to assume a very subtle yellowish tint after a year or so that only becomes more apparent with use..so even though practically you wont get a burn in-because most people dont keep a static image on their screen for long,amoleds will lose their accuracy of color reproduction after long use.this is the bare scientific fact- because the organic polymers in amoled had,has and will always degrade with us
just prove scientifically that organic polymers in amoled dont naturally degrade with time...
glass back and the metal design surely gives a luxury look and probably gorilla glass may not tend to break or scratch
How long will the battery last ??? Such an expensive handest, will I have to throw it away after 2 years ??? Why no radio ?? When will alternate model without S-pen tech be released ??
Realshit, 11 Mar 2015Samsung is trying to gain the Apple customers.Ridiculous, so I guess Burger king , Wendy's , chic-fil-a, and Rally's trying to steal customers from McDonald's. Ridiculous people buy what they like or what appeals to them , so if people like the Galaxy s6 or Galaxy 6 edge good for them and Me
