Display mate is not a good source to look from .
They test like only 2 display per year . one from apple another from samsung.......
The Sony Z5 have the best screen display not the Samsung S7 or Samsung S7 edge.
No Fan Boy...!, 24 Feb 2016You seems to be an Apple Fanboy...! My dad has S6 , i currently use Note 4, my previous phone... morei wouldn't even bother informing the readers of gsmarena about anything they are wired to hate certain brands with a passion, deny the obvious truth even when there is phisical proof in thier hands and its like thier alter egos step in when ever they comment to make sure they devalue what they personaly dont like and try every time to preach the gospel of brand hate. its like they are on a recruitment drive for souls or something. so pls spare ur self the pain of stating what anyone with a sensible mind already knows about AMOLED displays. ;)
Best display blah blah blah..... in the end, still full of bloatware, freeze/ hang, crash apps, etc.....

There is no point in comlaring the displays if they definitely aren't better. Proven by how pretty much nobody thinks there is a display better than Samsung's, no reliable source at least.
Ermm, it looks like displaymate only tested the samsung,apple, and some other few devices so when they said it's the best display they have ever tested I am not surprised. Although samsung indeed makes great display, I wish they would test display from some other major brand like sony, htc, lg, or motorola
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2016A little disappointed. The article states that it surpasses tye note 5 and s6 greatly the same... moreIt didn't say it greatly improved it though. The only place such an adjective was used was for brightness, and there were indeed strong improvements in that regard.
No surprise here. I'm just want to know what kind of improvement does Sammy give to the always-on-feature on amoled display.
Simon, 24 Feb 2016You've clearly never seen a single Samsung OLED in your life. The viewing angles are perfect o... moreI do have it.
Again, there is an endless thread on XDA about defective SGS6 screens
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2016A little disappointed. The article states that it surpasses tye note 5 and s6 greatly the same... moreThe improvement is not minor. It is big. They switch the Pentile Matrix display with RGB now. The nits control is more efficient and smarter as it able to learn your favoured brightness level. It can go down as much as only 2 nits which other smartphone had never achieved before. It is also 24% brighter and recognized as the most color accurate display in smartphone. Still think it is minor changes? Display is not just measured by ppi if that is what you thinking.
Oh, look at all those apple, samsung and microsoft displays they test, such versatile display test site this is...
It is a world leading mobile display test site indeed, so many different mobile screens in comparisson...
I am in awe
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2016A little disappointed. The article states that it surpasses tye note 5 and s6 greatly the same... moreI agree, the improvement is minor, with some extra brightness. But it doesn't change the fact nobody else is close to maching them.
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2016A little disappointed. The article states that it surpasses tye note 5 and s6 greatly the same... moreThe display was already stunning in s6... More than that would be overkill and hanper gpu and battery life... I dnt need 4k... And so do think others
regs, 24 Feb 2016When majority of Samsung displays have poor TN-like viewing angles it's hardly can be called b... moreWhat's way worse than that is the ugly color shift and the severe black crush which makes it impossible to see details in dark scenes even at full brightness in a dark room. I'm not even sure anymore if this is an actual problem or if Samsung just does this intentionally. In my opinion, AMOLED screens are unsuited for media consumption due to those issues. And no, using a different app or setting the screen mode to cinema mode does not fix this.
Or that weird color/contrast shift that goes across the screen which you notice especially when viewing a plain grey or dark color image. Every TN/IPS panel doesn't have this, this is an AMOLED specific Problem which they still haven't ironed out. But the simple folks who those displays are aimed at don't care about this so AMOLED has a good reputation.
