Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017you are centered to hate on Apply when that guy did not mention anything about that OPed brand... moreI didn't hate Apple here. I just told him the reason behind only few brands using OLED screens. If you don't get it then try read again.
I wonder if I paid them enough display mate would give my phone a high ranking? It would really make me feel better after spending $800, knowing I have the highest ranking display.
RaghavaZ, 05 Apr 2017Simple reason: high quality OLEDs are costly to produce. And there are only few manufacturers ... moreyou are centered to hate on Apply when that guy did not mention anything about that OPed brand, fanboy
I don't FIND this surprising at all! AMOLED is one of the greatest display technologies right now and Samsung makes the best AMOLEDs. The self given title of super AMOLED really is well deserved.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017if AMOLED is the best, the question that has been going around for years now is WHY ARE THERE ... moreSimple reason: high quality OLEDs are costly to produce. And there are only few manufacturers available right now and only two(Samsung and LG) who can do it in large scale.. Not everyone can afford to use them and get profits. Even Apple is charging extra for their OLED iPhone.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017if AMOLED is the best, the question that has been going around for years now is WHY ARE THERE ... moreA lot of brand do use it but only on tvs. Most amoled manufacturers use it for tvs technology. There are not many manufacturer making amoled display for mobile devices. The only one making amoled for mobile devices in high capacity is Samsung and LG.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017if AMOLED is the best, the question that has been going around for years now is WHY ARE THERE ... moreBecause they are buying cheaper displays like LCDs for more profit, like what Apple is doing. This year, Apple is finally putting AMOLED screens for the iPhone, and they'd be charging more.
Once you go AMOLED, you can't go back to LCD types - until the next battery tech comes along.
But people still wonder why not used 2 lenses camera and s8 s8+ will be no 1...hmm.
No one said it yet so I'll be the first...
Displaymate is sponsored by Samsung! XD
Aspros, 05 Apr 2017is the HDR premium any better than G6's HDR 10? How did the S8 beat the S8 plus, does it have... moreDon't know about technical details, but you'll never notice a difference. actually, you'll never able to find the difference even if you want, but AMOLED look better to normal folks , and it's also light on battery
"Some clueless reviewers have been pining for 4K 3840x2160 Smartphones, which would require almost double the pixels, memory, and processing power of the 2960x1440 display on the Galaxy S8, but there would be no visual benefit for humans! As a result, it is absolutely pointless to further increase the display resolution and pixels per inch (ppi) for a marketing wild goose chase into the stratosphere..." -DisplayMate
AnonD-77443, 05 Apr 2017I have owned/used both AMOLED and LCD phones in the past 12 months. AMOLED is simply the best.... moreif AMOLED is the best, the question that has been going around for years now is WHY ARE THERE A LOT OF BRANDS NOT USING IT? it might have the best numbers for the test, i.e. Brightness, Contrast etc, BUT, not all people specially with eye problems are ok with, not hating, just stating the facts that AMOLED is not the best, but not far from the best
This says it all for people who don't want to read the test.
The Galaxy S8 matches or sets new Smartphone display performance records for:
· Largest Native Color Gamut (113% DCI-P3 and 142% sRGB / Rec.709).
· Highest Peak Brightness (1,020 nits).
· Highest Contrast Rating in Ambient Light (227).
· Highest Screen Resolution 3K (2960x1440).
· Highest (infinite) Contrast Ratio.
· Lowest Screen Reflectance (4.5 percent).
· Smallest Brightness Variation with Viewing Angle (29 percent).
· Almost every display lab test and measurement shows some improvements compared to the Galaxy S7.
I have owned/used both AMOLED and LCD phones in the past 12 months. AMOLED is simply the best.
Samsung haters will argue about the displaymate results but they are based on scientific tests so they only make them selves look ignorant.
