I voted for color-accurate screens for a simple reason: a friend of yours sends you a picture. You say that it looks kinda weird, to which he replies, after looking at it: "That's not what it's supposed to look like".
Same thing with faces.
So, more people prefer accurate colours? I wonder how many of them were shouting about Pixels's muted colours just recently... I think it's best if you have a choice. Give me poping Colorado as standard, so it makes good impression. But if I want, give me a choice to change it.

I don't have such problems with well calibrated LCDs like Apple's or HTC's!
It's extremely annoying that oled screens can't display true white colour & yet display reviewers praise them. Talk about bribes!
I am for nothing less than true color accuracy. Accurate, true-to-life colors are the most pleasant viewing experience one can achieve in a mobile phone as they show you exactly what it is like to see the object or person or scene in real life. Beautiful things, people and scenes look exactly like they do on an accurate phone screen. Not so with screens which are oversaturated. Color oversaturation destroys fine detail. It renders sceneries looking like they never were, people like they are sunburned or wearing heavy make up all the time, and food and things look like they are newly painted with strong saturated colors reminiscent of a kiddie room, a new toy or a doll house. Pleasing at first, but downright ugly with extended and repeated viewing. Not so with accurate color displays - pastel colors remain as they really are: pastel, strong saturated colors remain strong and saturated without loss of detail; old, worn out faded things look just like they do in real life, old and faded, and most of all, people and kids faces look real, with freckles, blemishes and all - not like someone had sunburn or someone wearing heavy makeup when there is none.
I prefer amoleds, you can choose either boosted color screen or basic (in samsung phones atleast, i dont know the others) than lcd (produce more accurate colors), it looks like dull and sometimes lifeless and use more battery

I'm all 100% with Ivan on this one. I remember my first OLED phone - the Samsung Wave. I was mindblown and starstruck, and loved using it every single day. Then I bought the S6, and immediately noticed the colors were more muted, even when changing the display mode. I don't edit photos on a phone either. I do that on my desktop. I love when the colors pop on the phone's display. Still that doesn't mean not accurate - to me it just means it's more like I wish things were - they're showing everything as prettier, while still mostly preserving the natural feel of things.
I am on the Ivan side all the way. Oleds with beautiful colorfull and high contrast screens is must, when I see some lame LCD screen with lifeless colour I just want to cry and ask people how can they even look at their phone screens :) I remember I try "basic" mode on Samsung phone for like half an hour. And couldn't stand anymore. It was like looking at old Nokia TFT screens, where you can barely distinguish colour shades and between colours itself, it took entire life from YouTube videos or browsing. NOPE, never LCD in my life again, saturation for the best!
I'm all for colour accuracy. I've used the saturated colours before and they give me eye strain and a really bad headache after a few minutes of use - no matter if it's at night time or during day time. When it's set to colour accuracy, the content looks amazing and more lifelike, and it doesn't give me headaches.
I know it's a personal opinion and everyone has a different taste, but if you suffer from headaches and eye strain, i recommend you to change the settings if you can - it may help.
AnonD-368020, 15 Jan 2018No, this Bifurcation of screens is completely wrong. A proper categorization should be ....
1... moreScreen of S7 Edge and Pixel XL is the same.
Just need to curve the sides.
There is not exclusive screen...
I wonder how some tech site complain about LCD having low visibility when you spin 50, 70 or 90°.
I can see well even in lower brightness, no matter if I turn phone 80°.
No, this Bifurcation of screens is completely wrong. A proper categorization should be ....
1. Normal LCD with accurate colors (budget phones)
2. Normal LCD with boosted colors (budget phones)
3. Normal AMOLED with accurate colors ( mid-range phones)
4. Normal AMOLED with boosted colors ( mid-range phones)
5. Samsung flagship grade AMOLED ( best screen available)
There are also Sony 4K or normal HDR screen but those are not available to masses or sold in high numbers so not considering that.
Point is - you lose picture details and quality when the screen is saturated more than normal/lifelike.
Besides, when a website/picture/app/movie/etc. is displayed on an over-saturated screen, there's a 50% chance it will look bad. And then you get a lot of people saying that certain things "look bad" when in reality it's the screen that they're looking at, at fault.
Say a designer creates a website or app with nice pastel colours, that are easy on the eye, that should create a nice reading experience. It all looks nice on a normal screen, but put it on an over-saturated screen and the users will say that it's too much strain on their eyes and that the design is bad.
Then comes the times when one takes a picture, thinks it's great, then when they view it on another device, the picture will look really bland.
LG superfan, 15 Jan 2018Iphone X touch bar at bottom can do 120hzIIRC, that's just the digitizer registering 120 touches per second, which is something different than the actual OLED panel being able to produce 120 frames per second.
Akinaro, 15 Jan 2018What I really need from phone screen is proper contrast because ALL phones bump dark too much.... more"We like colorful posters, we like nice skin color, we like punchy colors on landscapes images, we like nice saturation of colors on movies."
That is completely different thing, we are now talking about unnatural bright colours. Not punchy colours or color saturated movies. Those still look normal even If you oversature them.
I don't know If you know but when you print cd covers, posters etc. Professionally you use cmyk colour palette and it only shows balanced colours. You can't print bright colours in cmyk, it's not possible. You might have very oversatured poster on your screen, but when you print it it won't look like how you made it. The world around us is balanced, everything fits together except those oversatured screens, that's why those look unnatural.
karooko, 15 Jan 2018"But AppleÂ’s OLED on the iPhone X, despite not being as bad as the Pixel 2Â’s default setting... morenah, i'm not a fanboy of anything.
just saying what i like after comparing it on my hands side-by-side.
i prefer the one on the X. :D
