AnonD-80150, 14 Jan 2013Not a big deal. We at Apple have Retina Display. Retina display is the biggest marketing bull shit way to say our phone screens are good but are shit saw my friends i4s the colors where so dull and dead the screen size is of what a 6 year old girl could find not to small. I5 is better but the colors aren't vibrant and alive and it's not even true HD . amoled ftw

I thought AMOLED's were supposed to bring better battery life with the blacks being non lit, or am I thinking of ClearBlack tech?
If the phone size stays the same with the 5" screen is on just have a thinner bazel
well, this is the least thing people expect to see on S4. but the saturated colors of AMOLED seem annoying. unfortunately people don't use their mind to understand the superiority of TFT screens over AMOLED. they just use their eyes!!
I wonder it will be the galaxy s IV display and with exinos 5 cpu. If it is so Apple will be advanced by Samsung
Im sorry, but this being a sAMOLED screen i actually a bad thing. Am I the only one who cares about the tru quality of the screen and the colors it produces and not about the deep blacks only?
Dood, 14 Jan 2013Why samsung is going for bigger and bigger screens , normal phones were 4 Inch screens , then ... morePeople are buying bigger screens so thats what companies are developing... Pretty simple hey?
m86k, 14 Jan 2013I think we are reaching some size limit for mobile phones with 5 inchers (hopefully!).
But ... moreTotally agree
5 Inch is not a mobile phone screen
its not a handy size , not suitable for using it by one hand or for normal daily use to keep it in your pocket while walking , setting , driving
I prefer android phones over IOS , but the most powerful android phones are really big 4.8 inch + " Samsung S3, Samsung Note 2 " while apple iphone 4 inch
Samsung for god sake I want a phone not a Mirror
To everyone who is moaning about big screens that is what your iphones are for! Now go away!
If it's pentile, it's not really 1080p.
I prefer LCD to sAMOLED+ screens. But ordinary sAMOLED screens are just lousy..

But manufacturers went the easiest way to earn money: selling new techs right now instead of waiting for them to take less space for smaller phones if you see what i mean : HD / Full HD panels, bigger batteries, more powerful cpus, etc..
That allows them a different strategy than before where the smallest your phone was, the best it was.
That's also why i think Apple came and people found them so revolutionnary, they thought the other way and decided to set a different size for selling "techs".
Those techs will get eventually on smaller phones, but later and of course, it'll be disappointing since they won't be so new.
lellos, 14 Jan 2013and the battery will last 3 times more than your xperia z!Don't be so sure about that, my s3 lasts only 3-4 hours on heavy games and web browsing.
I think its not worth the change if u have note2. Note3 maybe in q4 at best
As long as the phone doesn't get bigger than S3, that 4.99" should be another fine screen. Can't wait to browse my albums / movies on that.
Why samsung is going for bigger and bigger screens , normal phones were 4 Inch screens , then Samsung produced S3 with a big screen 4.8 Note 2 with a bigger screen , and now they are going for 5 Inch screen , they must know that these big screens are not handy for most people , these screens are for giant people only not normal people !!
AnonD-73093, 14 Jan 2013AMOLED.......give me LCD pleaseGo drink some kool-aid already. There are plenty of 5'' LCD 1080p screens out there (for a start that LCD3 on HTC's Butterfly). Stop bitching about one company developing AMOLED screens for those of us who do like them. Having more screen tech options is a good thing (LCD, IGZO and AMOLED ftw).
