rcl4444, 14 Mar 2013I agree with most here that the Exp Z screen looks better overall. And I'm also not impressed... moreS4 would have 330 PPI. Why would you want more, have you found yourself holding your phone closer than 10 inches? Any higher resolution is a burden to your batter and GPU, w/t any true benefit to sharpness. I agree amoled sucks due to its dimness but s4 resolution is perfect, not too high, not too low.
A clear win for XZ. The last pic, of the child, the hair is just a black thing on the S4 while Z has lots and lots of details and it actually looks like, hair.
I'm a HTC One X user and between these I'd sincerely go with the Xperia Z.The S4's screenshots are too dark.That's why I'll always stay with The LCD display!
Disappointing. HTC One is still on top for screen quality.
Actually i thought Sony Xperia Z screen is better?!
Or is it just me?
S4 seems darker and unnatural colors...
I agree with most here that the Exp Z screen looks better overall. And I'm also not impressed with Pentile either.
However, Pentile1080 does NOT equal RGB720 - it's closer to 1/4 the way between 720 and 1080. So more like 810 (just to be pedantic :-) )
Anyway, it's not 1080 and though it may not matter much at this level of resolution, the point is the competition is able to provide true 1080p so Samsung have little excuse not to offer similar (or better).
eli577, 14 Mar 2013Wow....welcome pentile matrix....again. FAIL!!!It's actually Genius, any added sharpness is useless in that high resolutions... Pen tile is cheap on battery and GPU. I like it
S IV screen was only dark! Nothing inspiring... S IV's screen and future both r in dark!
Samsung your golden period ends here.
Sony, get to the centre stage
This is not Samoled screen its confirmed as pholed hyper bright display with new matrix arrangement
That site doesn't know that viewing angels are the most important in our life. :D
I feel xperia z picture is better than s4... S4 seems to be darker...
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2013Even the black on Super Amoled it's inky black not even pure black, yellow looks orange,White ... moreTo be fair s4 has twice the pixel density compared to S3 so it's unlike to see any pixelation. Plus I find the use of low resolution genius, as any added sharpness will only make the battery last lest w/t making things usefully sharper. 720p is the best that small screens can use. Low battery consumption,sharp as sharp can be...
AnonD-95874, 14 Mar 2013And then they said xperia z has the worst displayGuess it's for people who only read the conclusion of a review. :p
