This display shoot out is a big fat lie for two reasons:
1. Biased "black" setup with a 15 second exposure!? Were they worried about noise in the photo of flat blacks!?!? That was rigged to make the Z look worse than it really is! We all know OLED has better blacks but this is just an exxageration.
2. The colour charts have been tampered with. The service test on a Z has a full colour chart and shows much better colour reproduction than what they have shown here.
GSMarena... you should pull this, unless you want to prove Sammy's slush fund is at work again here.

If its the first answer, then please have a look and then say the same thing, because I think you haven't bothered to even see if its the case!
Is there any way we can make a request to sony to lower the price for the Xperia Z so we can afford it? its just to expensive that beauty
lol sammy is not wiping the floor with sony or htc unless design is up to par they cleary have better design to each his own ther is to much choice this year to be stuck on sammy
AnonD-123983, 14 Mar 2013i dont know much about phones but what i knw is samsung is goin better with s4more like a refreshed s3 with bigger screen.....dissapointed
Xperia Z has the best screen of all of them, just have a look closer u will see,,,,,, and samsung G4 it has not that good screen

[deleted post]No iam a electronic technician. You madhead don't no about importance of high contrast. Just check your tv (lcd) bright and contrast. (If you a blind iam sorry).
i dont know much about phones but what i knw is samsung is goin better with s4
Xperia Z screen is far superior, colour representation is much better than that on any Samsung. Surely anyone can see that. Imagine watching your TV and all whites had a blue look, would you still say it was a great screen.............. I think not..
The Xperia Z has one of the badest Screen alive in history.
The picture only looks ok because of bravia which can only be used in Gallery
im so happy i didn't wait for S4.
it really disappointed me, first with its boring design and now with its bad screen.
i love my Z and won't change my S3 with that boring S4.
