After using an OLED phone with saturated colors for a few hours my eyes burn. This never happens to me when I use an LCD phone.
Also, EVERYWHERE I look, EVERYONE is talking about oled burnins. I usually use a phone for 2-3-4 years before upgrading, so this is a topic that really interests me.
Oled may look better but i prefer LCD.
The over saturation seems to be just a cheap trick to make you like oled more. There's no advantage. Only your eyes burning after a few hours of use.
I totally go with Paul. Even before google introduced natural colours in its Pixel 2, one of the very first things I did on my nexuses were to go to the developer settings and turn on RGB. Saturated colours looked vaey gaudy and coarse!! It simply couldnt bring out the various hues in colours. I simply couldnt stand boosted or saturated colours. One of the very few things i like in an iphone is its commitment to natural colours with a great display. Hope google can catch up with apple and surpass it as it did with its camera module in its forthcoming Pixel 3.
My lg g3 has a blue tint white on stock ROM(no colour setting) but with custom Oreo ROMs ,now I have colour calibration in setting my screen white is now identical to my S6 screen.
On the Oneplus 5T there's 5 options to change the colour reproduction of the display.
Default, SRGB, DCI-P3, Adaptive Mode and Custom Mode.
I found adaptive mode to be the most accurate but most people find it dull, actually, it's as accurate as my friend's iphone X. Good job Oneplus.
I found the default settings too punchy so i've gone with DCI-P3, it makes whites a tad orange but it's not as punchy.
Oneplus has many settings
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2018My Z3 has option to calibrate the RGB level.
From 0 up to 255.
By default all Sony come se... moreIf you raise them all equally then the colour doesn't change.
Raise red a bit and green a bit less and whites will be less blue.
What I really need from phone screen is proper contrast because ALL phones bump dark too much.
Just open any dark video or image on TV, PC monitor and phone and you will see that on phone everything is too dark.
iPhone, Galaxy, Sony, no mater what phone it is, when I try to watch movie on it, all dark scenes are just dark as night.
And colors? Why would you need perfectly accurate colors on phone? you gonna edit professional photos on it? You gonna paint on it? Why dont just bump colors a bit to look better? Not much but slightly bumped colors are ok for everything. People actually prefer them even if they say they dont. We like colorful posters, we like nice skin color, we like punchy colors on landscapes images, we like nice saturation of colors on movies.
As far as it dont mess with this damn contrast Im fine.

Sorry, Apple's OLED screen is muted to say the least.
Don't be too fanboying on Apple. lol
I'm an Android fanatic, but I gotta admit that I have a big problem with white colour on AMOLED screens. Apple LCDs display perfect white, but so does some other lcds. When it comes to oled, I immediately switch to Basic mode on Samsung phones, but the whites even though look better, are now slightly yellowish. I can't stand the fake fluorescent like colors of Adaptive mode.
The irony is that the oled of the iphone X is made by Samsung, but displays perfect whites. When will a Samsung oled on a Samsung phone finally have perfect whites?
I need both.. Saturated for entertainment and accurate for drawing and editing..
i'm more to accurate screen.
iPhone X is a perfect balance between punchiness and accuracy in my opinion.
my S8 is either too saturated(Adaptive, Cinema, Photo) or too dull(Basic).
Adaptive makes my eyes tire faster though, so my daily one is Cinema.
i know Cinema is supposed to have the same calibration, but it's still too saturated on S8, especially the Red, it looks so artificial.
Iphone X's display is vivid while being accurate with colors. That's just so hard to ignore and even if the Samsungs have better displays to look at, I still prefer Iphone's display.
As others have said,how about giving US the choice in settings ?
It seems a bit stupid that an entire media industry has spent decades trying to give more band more accurate colour presentation which has now been hijacked so that colours now look totally inaccurate.
A good display should be almost indistinguishable from what you see looking at the same scene direct with the mark one human eye ball.
If you have a decent camera looking at your garden feeding a feed to your display,what you see on that display should match what you see if you stick yer head out of the window and look at exactly the same scene..
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2018Realistic. We don't like the crappy oversaturated screen of S8/Note 8.Obviously you've never used a Samsung AMOLED phone before. Better to keep quiet than show your ignorance.
AnonD-292897, 14 Jan 2018Rarely anyone would say "oversaturated" over "accurate", but in real life everyone is STUNNED ... moreYes, the word 'oversaturated' is a loaded word and is bias. You should say tuned or enhanced. The survey question itself already answers itself.
AnonD-659657, 15 Jan 2018The only simple way to solve this is manufactures should just provide options for saturated an... moreTrue. Samsung does it right with their display options. The s8 and note8 feature hdr10 compliant displays that blow other oleds out of the water. But if you're a fellow who prefers colors that are as bland as you are boring without the option to tweak them a bit, all you have to do is change the display setting.
