"....even two or three years after...." - really!? "...even..." Here a proposal for new slogan: Samsung - the worlds leader of Bull S..t. Should I mention that my 1.5 year old $600 Galaxy S is not supported and updated at all anymore....(never seen it working properly since day one!)
This explanation doesn't make any sense.
Why should the amount of blue pixels have any impact on blue pixel life span?
IMO it's the opposite:
less blue pixels -> individual pixels need to be brighter -> more voltage/pixel -> SHORTER life span

I have SGSII right in my hand and it turns noticeably blue-ish at angle, had to be pretty steep angle but it colour shift definitely there, not like IPS screen I have standing on my desk nearby.

So blue sub-pixels wear faster, and fade over time. This becomes a problem for color accuracy if blue is every 3rd sub-pixel of the display, yet somehow in a pentile arrangement where they are driven harder and more often, this isn't as big a problem? With fewer of them in a set space they are more likely to be lit if any level of blue contributes to the color in that area, and must be driven harder to achieve a similar brightness level in it. Also, if there are fewer blue sub-pixel elements in an area, then degradation in any of them is MORE likely to be noticed, not less, since they have a larger area of effect. Being driven harder, they are also more likely(/seriously) to suffer burn-in.
I call BS, Samsung. I think you just haven't cracked HD SAMOLED Plus manufacturing at this density yet.
rcl4444, 12 May 2012There's a point we're all missing: This can't be true -
Degradation is a percentage loss ov... moreActually this is the reason. Blue pixels in pentile can be made bigger in area, which reduces current density and degradation. They still degrade, but this allows make them to degrade in roughly same rate as green ones.
There's a point we're all missing: This can't be true -
Degradation is a percentage loss over time. If the issue is truly about blue pixel degradation, then this would affect blue pixels in BOTH PENTILE & RGB EQUALLY! As an example (and define it as you like) 1 in 4, 25% or 1/4 - it translates to the same effect to a screen (same percentage loss per screen) whether it is 100, 1000 or 10000 pixels that makes up that screen. A degradation rate of 25% (or whatever it might be) of any number is 25% of that screens brightness/ burn-in/ pixel count, whatever...
Unless the blue pixels in pentile are different to those in RGB then this simply can't be the real (or a factual) reason.
Max, 11 May 2012Pentile will not save the SGS3 from SCREEN BURN-IN or PERMANENT IMAGE RETENTION or GHOSTING. I... moreHahaha, capital letters wont make what you said right. Ghosting? That is no 3D Display... burn-in? Maybe 7-8 years ago, bro.

Yeah, you mean like an iphone 3g with ios 4.2? That is no update, that was a crapdate... phone was laggy as hell, totally unusable... iphone will definetly die out... more and more people understand that... Buy short options for the next year on apple nasdaq if you wanna make some money.
NOW Pentile Screens are better.
Nokia was downplayed by GSMArena by saying the N9 uses Pentile instead of RGB screens. But with GS3 sporting Pentile Matrix, it is now better.
super amoled, amoled, ips lcd, backlight led lcd...whatever... do companies are building phones for superman where he can see the diff between screens, i didnt for once had a complaint of someone stating that his phone screen is bad or my screen is better than his... come one its same as benchmarks how can a human feel or the see diff between single core and quad core, except for some multitasking and still never i had to open 3,245 apps in one shot to c it...
Johnny, 11 May 2012The screen on Apples phone is just any normal screen with more pixels. Why they gave it a spec... moreYoure right, but i know actually why they gave it a special name, cuz you see, most iFans use that name and have no idea, what it means and make stupid comments like "still no retina" on the sgs3, even though the super amoleds are far better. That is like selling some hair conditioner with the special x-formula inside it, noone knows what it does and what it means, but other conditioners are worse, cuz they dont have the x-formula... and at the end the special x-formula is simply some aloe vera...

A mate of mine just had the screen on his Galaxy S2 die. Was fine at the start of the day and then was unusable by the end. With such a high ppi, pentile all the way!
