it better be for a 1.2k phone. for that price i could buy 2 oneplus 5, go out for a really nice dinner in a restaurant with my wife and aftwerwards go to the theaters with some popcorn and cokes.

Well, as your name suggests, you seem like a Sony lover. I want you to tell me about the advantages of JOLED to OLED. I see a lot of people being really optimistic about JDI's displays since they started going to the OLED route.
Vegetaholic, 07 Nov 2017Please for once, just shut up with your pesky LCD screens and embrace the glory of Samsung AMO... moreI'm sorry for begging to disagree, but AMOLEDs on smartphones have a long way to improve on.
Let's just say that burn ins don't occur, but blue pixel diodes die out very quickly, which gives a yellow tint appearance on the whites. IPS LCDs don't last forever, but lasts so much longer still. Tbh, if you're gonna ask me, I'd take the slightly worse blacks and contrast over a very eye-popping look of AMOLED. More accurate maybe, but they go too far, they look oversaturated instead. Besides, IPS LCDs can be calibrated to be as accurate as AMOLEDs; Apple has shown it with their Retina displays.
AMOLED may be a superior technology, but the mere fact that their long time issues could still occur any time even today is enough for one to not consider getting it. Don't get me wrong, AMOLED looks absolutely gorgeous, I myself am admitting it, but IPS LCDs have improved a lot that they're almost as good as AMOLEDs yet are cheaper to manufacture and have so much less issues to deal with.
And I don't agree with Samsung being the best in class in display. Sure, they're the best with OLEDs today, but Sony is going to use JDI's much better JOLED panel that would not suffer from most of what our current OLEDs suffer from. If rumors are true, next year they could probably release at least one flagship with JDI's OLED display, and knowing they have provided Sony some top notch IPS LCD panels for a very long time, it'll be no surprise if it would be better than even Samsung's best OLED.
But if we are gonna talk about purely the best in class, we should never forget Crystal LED, or Sony's CLEDIS (Crystal LED Integrated Structure) that offers everything an OLED and IPS LCD can, but without each of their disadvantages/drawbacks. It will take time before they get incorporated on smartphones, but when that time comes, it will be an absolutely epic time to be alive; the days of pixel response latency will finally be gone again after plasmas and CRTs.

It's as small as their brains. Just kidding lol, but I can assure to have thousands of bashing replies to this. You know, people get triggered by a joke. Maybe "joke" isn't part of their dictionary, because their brains are so small, they went full in an instant.
Excellent. I’m very excited to get this phone! The best display, arguably the best camera, and unquestionably the best performer.
mir, 07 Nov 2017Oh really? Yes really! I made it...!! It's difficult to believe but true I made it...
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2017People complained about the S8's and Note 8's 18.5:9 display being too tall....the iPhone X us... moreBecause it is of the same screen size as the Galaxy S8 but looks way less tall because of narrower profile. As much as I don't like black borders/letterboxing, 18:9 should be a standard for smartphones, for capacitive/physical keys are no longer needed. I just wish that manufacturers would make better use of the black borders that are left unfilled, like making it ala-LGV10/V20's secondary ticker display that shows all toggles/app shortcuts and notifications, so that the black borders don't feel like wasted space; at least they are consumed wisely. Of course, the option to disable them should be present for those who want it, but I'm sure that 18:9 ratio would make so much more sense in that way.
People didn't like 18:9 screens because they aren't efficiently used. Add everything that I've said and maybe people would appreciate the usefulness of it.
People complained about the S8's and Note 8's 18.5:9 display being too tall....the iPhone X uses a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and I have not heard a SINGLE complaint. Hmmmmm...
CONGRATULATIONS SAMSUNG! And you didn't even need to pay anything... Apple paid DisplayMate for your screen award.

for god's sake people, the note8 can go to 1200 nits in a small part of the screen not the whole thing. again, a small part of the screen not the whole thing. in terms of the brightness for full screen it's a bit dimmer than the iphone x. a bit dimmer than the iphone x.
oh one more thing, the note8 can go to 1200 nits in a small part of the screen not the whole thing.
Apple is hopefully grateful that Samsung developed the tech. Competition is good. Apple took this round it sounds like. Samsung will take the next with the S9. But in reality, wonder if anyone can discern the difference, if the difference matters. Same with the camera.

I can't forget a comparative article b... moreIt doesn't mean that reporter or writer made some biased reports then everything else follows. Where is the the connection in that? This article is written based on its thorough tests. It's Displaymate who made some reports not just an ordinary person.
Note 8 has a brighter screen than iPhone X. DisplayMate said it themselves.
"Another very noticeable and major improvement for the Galaxy Note8 is the display is 22% Brighter than the Galaxy S8, with a Peak Display Brightness of over 1,200 nits, a new Record for Smartphones, which provides significantly improved display performance and screen readability in challenging indoor and outdoor high ambient light viewing conditions."
