The brightness level is better to even better, and what is nothing changes is the IPS display durability quality, that is why the brands always win my my hearts and also saving my money.

No black light which gives a poor impression
Accurate colors, no over-saturation like SAMOLEDs
Decent pixel density (which is pretty much covered now)
These four would work for me.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2017Can't believe some people rather have punchy colors than accurate colors. WowSo yes "Punchy" colors is not aacurate colors, overaturation (intensivity), but not more color(s) tone(s) whats should be. I agree with you. But need more inform these different two sense - oversaturated intense colors (bad thing, not accurate, not color supporting) and more color(s) tone(s) support (good thing) different meaning.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2017Can't believe some people rather have punchy colors than accurate colors. WowLet me show some clarity. Accurate colors can be accurate by sRGB color space content and accurate by DCI-P3 color space. If its not accuate its can be not accurate on both color space content. Its some stereotype that only sRGB can be accurate. Both color space have color space standarts and OS should have software support too. Sure sRGB color space have more natural to life colors, then we can call it more accurate to reality colors. Thats good but they also have sRGB color space standart also. Punchy colors have DCI-P3 color space standarts. Normally they don't have color standarts or limits but OS should have support to show whole more color tone ranges, otherwise colors just be only oversaturated and you don't see more color(s) tones. So accuracy need be more accurate and supported by OS software. Oreo started support different content screen profiles. Mostly in display color mode settings sRBG color space calling Normal display color mode profile. DCI-P3 color space calling Boosted or Vivid display color mode profile. Technicaly both should be accurate by standarts. Some time before we haven't accurate sRGB or DCI-P3 color space modes. But situation changing appeared color space OS support and Display Color modes profiles. Now color profiles need be accurate by color space standars.

What I don't mentioned missed force touch is nice to have display hadware-software feature, sometimes force touch you can have with only software, but maybe sometimes need more harware screen implementation feature, to have more functionality. Force touch is good productivity (faster and easier) improvement. I think it's need to be go forward in Android, iOS.
Apple files app would nice to have more options and tools for increase productivity update. But is a bit out of screen topic corner side by Force touch and Productivity and how it make do feel. Its really fun until a bit sad. Experiences.

Unless Sony pays you for every pro-Sony post you make. People have their own biases and you can't change people's minds by merely writing so-called "facts". I have experienced sub-par Sony products several times. Maybe you are lucky or you haven't used enough of them or used them long enough. There is no need to defend any brand. People can experience for themselves which brands are good and bad.
Akinaro, 27 Nov 2017" I'm not really a very scientific man, so Idk how to explain it correctly, but you really hav... moreYou couldn't be more wrong here.
HDR and "dynamic contrast" are completely different things - the latter just operates the general backlight (and it doesn't actually work all that much, just boosts the numbers in spec list), while HDR needs either an OLED display, or a LCD one with local dimming. Add wider gamut and at least 8bit+FRC colour depth (You better read about those) and those are some nice hardware requirements needed.
"TV screen have better color reproduction" - such BS... It's all about proper screen calibration - You can have the best display ever, but not calibrating it is just like flushing it down the toilet.

Yes you are not very scientific man, and its look you base all your knowledge around advertising gibberish.
You compare phone screen with TV screen. And you compare amount of colors like you could you distinguish them one by one.
All you actually see is bumped colors and contrast that give you feeling of "more". Not to mention that TV screen have better color reproduction(it doesnt mean realistic) and most of TV today have dynamic light balance, so implementing dynamic color/contrast is a matter of software work.
Also source video need to be good quality. Just pick new good quality footage and older one and you will see that its a matter of used codec that is responsible for proper color reproduction.
Be Nice To Others, 27 Nov 2017Well, if the screen is of higher resolution, then it means it can work at higher refresh rates... moreI wish to correct you. If you run a normal 60Hz monitor at lower resolution, it doesn't become a 120Hz gaming monitor... It will still refresh at 60 times per second only.
The whole hardware has to be ready for 120 Hz, if you plan on that...
Of course, the software itself may push more frames per second if you run at lower resolution, that's a fact, only the hardware won't be able to display it.
Take an example:- Move your mouse in a fast manner left to right and back many times, do you see the mouse pointer moving smoothly? I think you'll see jittery, stop motion kind of movement.
That is due to monitor's hardware limitation.
The windows interface may run at even 500 frame per second, because moving a mouse pointer doesn't require much processing, but the hardware (screen) itself can't display those 500 fps... It displays 60Hz/ 60 fps at maximum, which is what you will see.
So, even if you view a 120 fps video on a common mobile phone screen, you will see 60 fps in reality if your screen is 60 Hz...
For me, accurate colors, power efficiency, sunlight legibility and contrast are important, so I checked those ones.
Thing that I'd like to have in the future include 120Hz screen, but not until they work out all the kinks. Pixel density is something that beyond certain point, doesn't make a difference and may even have negative impact regarding performance and battery life (however small, impact nonetheless).
Thing that is important, but is not mentioned on the poll, TOUCH SCREEN LATENCY. Hugely important spec that most sites, besides notebookcheck and lesnumeriques (and few others), wont pay attention to. I guess most devices nowadays are at least acceptable, hence it's not that big of a deal, but there is some difference between models even from the same manufacturer. G5 Plus LCD has more latency than G5, Nokia 6 and 3 have more latency than Nokia 5. That sort of information isn't useless.
I checked almost every option :D
I sure would love to have 120Hz, Oled panel ... but let's be real, it's will take some time to get 120Hz Amoled on a phone + backlight control must be better as well.
What makes is great? Two words, Samsung Amoled, everything else just ignore, because it is the best screen you can get in smartphone, period.
Not sure why that's not a thing anymore. But since I just purchased Mi A1 I had the need to look into issues of motion blur which seemingly nobody cares about anymore. Especially on darker background the A1 really suffers from it and despite it having a refresh rate of 60Hz the issue is most probably related to the quality of the crystals which may cause minor pixel response times I guess. My low-budget Lumia of two years had a distinctively better display in this regard, which is a shame for an up-to-date smartphone of this year.
Imperator Neubaticus, 27 Nov 2017Samsung oleds. Everything else is subpar. And haters just cant accept that. For now. Wait for Japan's OLED to be released and prepare to be blown away. Diamond PenTile is not better than RGB, and never will it be.
If we are talking about which one can produce darker blacks, I'd rather not argue with it, but I will admit that OLEDs are better in that respect, but the quality of IPS LCDs nowadays are getting so much better that they are near the level of OLED in that thing. If we talk about whites, it's a different thing, but I would say that the IPS LCD still has the better colors overall. Everything just looks plain oversaturated on OLEDs. And I mean not really inaccurate, but too accurate, to the point that it gets oversaturated instead. I know it is very easy to adjust, but then again IPS LCD has less issues to suffer from than OLEDs.
For one, no burn in. No pixel degredation. No color shifting at an angle. Can even go brighter which leads to better sunlight legibility.
Sure, more efficient, and more contrast, but nothing else.
You should probably stop acting as if your beloved Samsung is killing everything. Yes they are very successful at what they're doing, but doesn't mean they're the best, and it's not that people can't accept it, rather they only know much more so they disagree, and if you will ask me, I don't see it as hating or what.

A true HDR screen can display more colors and provide better shadow details than a typical screen can. I'm not really a very scientific man, so Idk how to explain it correctly, but you really have to see a true HDR screen to see a difference. I've said this because I have a SDR screen phone and a HDR screen TV, and I'm telling you honestly that there are some colors on my TV that my phone simply cannot display nor render correctly.
