NotAFanboyy, 29 Aug 2017Their TV panels aren't great anymore, Sony X900E, ZD9, X940E have surpassed Samsung QLED.No, not at all... you are telling this because sony has oled display, that too an inferior one to LG and Samsung ( samsung showed their prototype recently)... Samsung is deliberately trying to push forward Quantom dot.. Infact samsung has the best Oled technlology, that is super amoled.. and diamond pixel arrangement was introduced by them.. Now samsung has good measure of reason for choosing LCD over oled right now.... TVs work at a much higher brightness continuously for hours with fixed channel logos.. which is a massive problem in any oled display for burn ins.. not only that, Qled can get very bright, much brighter than oleds, thats also a reason.. but the most important reason is, lcd is much more versatile.. whereas amoleds looks good only in specific situations.. in TVs atleast

Yes, they do have to sacrifice the brightness for it because it would burn the battery really fast if they didn't. But the 4k hdr from certain reviewers word is really stunning and definitely noticably sharper.
In outdoors i suppose it would be a bigger disadvantage. Once JDI oled comes we will see a real competitor to samsung.
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2017Nokia 808 scores 4.698 in sunlight legibility second only to the Galaxy S8 with 4.768.. But so... morenokia 8 doesn't have clearblack. All of the patents haven't transfered fully yet to HMD global from microsoft. so clearblack is missing.
also, clearblack might be good but nokia is till limited by whatever other suppliers make for them.
ren122, 29 Aug 2017if im not mistaken i believe huawei and htc do not produce their own panels. Think they use JD... moreThere is no doubt actually superior Amoled tech on the way. Though it's nothing like that person said.
There is Oled with different materials that can literally use half the power of what we see here. And I mean apx 50%. At the same brightness level.
And there has been strides in the efficiency/life span of the the organic materials. Especially the blue. Within the next year or two expect some amazing Oled display technology.
Now when exactly it will be consumer available, come to mobiles, whether Samsung will be an early producer/adopter of such tech, and how much sooner or later companies like Sony and LG have it is all up in the air.

Think they use JDI lcd screen (which is part sony ). Same thing with nokia although nokia adds its own technology like clearblack screen which enhences whatever panel they get.
its really a battle between LG, Samsung, Sharp, and JDI since they are the main 4 panel makers.
I believe LG, Sharp, and JDi will definitely catch up soon. if Sharp and JDI partner up i think we are going to see the beginning of a true competitor to samsung.
DisplayMate is a joke. They want to become DxOmark in the display industry but fortunately you wouldn't. Displaymate is a trashy site who get paycheck from samsung everytime the release this 'test'. What really happen is that they just publish whatever report samsung send them to publish. Anyone who believes the displaymate test is a moron.
NotAFanboyy, 29 Aug 2017But Sony innovates in TVs, while Samsung is playing catch up with QLED. The X940E, X900E, ZD9 ... moreIf that Sony tv display so amazing why dont sony bring it to their phone too, hmm? Its not like global tv sales increasing just because tv have better display. Tv cannot do what a smartphone can do. Not even smart tv impress me. Neither from samsung or sony or sharp or whatever tv brand out there. Smartphone display is more important.
[deleted post]i expected an overpriced gadget to have the best screen, why would i be hurt about it? s2pd keyboard warrior
RainX, 29 Aug 2017Lol... are you sure.?. ask GSMA it they get to keep their review units... they need to return ... morewhat can you not understand that the OEM sends the samples if inquired by the reviewers?
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2017Nokia 808 scores 4.698 in sunlight legibility second only to the Galaxy S8 with 4.768.. But so... moreClearBlack is definitely great for outdoor viewing. My Lumia 1520 was amazing outdoors for the year it was made.
Sean, 29 Aug 2017But Sony's 4K Xepria The smaller the pixel the harder it is to emit light.. The technology is not there yet to display full 4K brightness.. Even the Sony 4K display actually blend the rgb matrix with adjacent pixels to produce the 4K resolution.. So it is not true 4K rather pseudo 4K.. And it is brightness impaired

Nevermind just look at Nokia 8's score : 4.239!!! and it is not even an AMOLED!! Just regular IPS LCD with ClearBlack technology..
Only Nokia's AMOLED will be able to beat Samsung
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2017it is the reviewers job to get the samples, not the OEMsLol... are you sure.?. ask GSMA it they get to keep their review units... they need to return it to the OEM... if OEMS wants to have their units reviewed, then they need to send one for a review...
but the phone will crack when dropped! And it will due to it being more slippery than a bar of soap dipped in oil
Sonu4678, 29 Aug 2017The only improvement i can see is "higher peak brightness". DisplayMate should also review ot... morethen those OEMS should also send their best phones to DisplayMate... that's the same for review, OEMS needs to send a phone to reviewers...
No doubt Samsung makes the best smartphone screens today, but I'll wait for the competitors to catch up to the OLED race.
I'm keen to see what LG, Sony, HTC, Huawei, etc. have to offer with OLED screens, maybe they can do a far better job.
I'm also excited for Nokia's ClearBlack and PureMotion display.
Nokia 808 PureView's sunlight contrast is literally unmatchable on its time, and it took more than 2 yars before one could beat it by a hair.
