Ok, for those who don't believe the physical tests from an independent company that has been around for over a decade (displaymate).... here are some hands on review comments from other websites.
BoyGeniusReport: "I won’t mince words: The quad HD display on Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 4 is the most gorgeous smartphone screen I have ever seen."
PCAdvisor: "While using the Note 4, we found that the screen had an incredible sense of depth, and we can imagine that it'll be difficult to go back to full-HD once you've used a smartphone or tablet with a Quad HD screen like this one."
Gizmodo "The Galaxy Note 4′s screen is the star of the show. The display is undeniably stunning,.... I often involuntarily muttered “wow” to myself while swiping through different menus and apps, so that’s a good sign."
anandtech: "the difference in resolution between 1080p vs 1440p was quite noticeable to me."
ibtimes “the measured colour temperature of Note 4 in Basic mode matches well with the standard reference value of 6500K which means there is a striking balance between the primary red and blue colours.”
SUCK IT UP HATERS!
Note 4 = best phone in 2014!
mixa, 15 Sep 2014So DisplayMate "surprisingly" found yet again a display in a just announced Samsung ... moreSo why u did not say that Samsung is really "racing" themselves & producing yet another best in the market screen one after another ??
It is not Samsung paying them, but it is Samsung producing the best screens EVERY time....
mixa, 15 Sep 2014So DisplayMate "surprisingly" found yet again a display in a just announced Samsung ... moreYou do realise that all these tests are physical and can be easily checked. DisplayMate is an independent company that has been around for a decade doing high end work. Do you really think they would risk dodgying figures that can be checked? I understand u are a hater and seeing that the note 4 has the best screen really hurts. Ps check reviews if u don't believe DisplayMate.
joonius, 15 Sep 2014Look at all these jealous haters. I don't usually use that term to describe other people becau... moreI think needing the back light altogether is the flaw.
And you are right. And it's mainly because it's Samsung. People get really hurt over these things.
Look at all these jealous haters. I don't usually use that term to describe other people because it sounds so childish but this time there is no better term to describe them. Jealous pitiful haters who can't accept that SAMOLED displays are current best displays on mobile. I don't see how IPS will ever take the top place again when they have the irreparable flaw: the lame black contrast.
DQ, 15 Sep 2014I agree... DisplayMate are paid by Samsung... but not only that, they don't test devices regul... moreSo Amoled does not have very low reflectance?
Does not produce deep blacks and massive contrast?
Amoled has no power efficiency advantages?
They have not gotten brighter and brighter reaches great new levels and vet great sunlight scores?
GSM made this all up too in their own tests?
It cannot reach 2nits low dimness?
It does not have high peak auto brightness?
You don't have user selectable color modes?
Don't have a very accurate white point now?
The cinema/basic/movie mode does not provide much less saturated colors?
The only thing they may have exaggerated is the precise color accuracy in the natural mode. Which I doubt. I think they get test devices with slightly better calibration in colors.
And the rest can be proven by every other review or with your own eyes and actually using your brain.
anandtech did a review of samsung's qhd screens a few weeks ago and said they were the best displays they'd seen- best in color accuracy, best in gray scale, best in white temperature. check it out:
Reaper8, 15 Sep 2014yeah its not like samsung ever cheated at something bgr.com/2013/11/27/samsung-benchmark-ch... moreI wouldn't call that a cheat, that's just prove android can go and beyond its limitation and unlike iOS. have you seem people gone to extreme overlock their cpu up to 6.5ghz using all sort of cooling stuff? then you call it cheating too? (experimenting)
mixa, 15 Sep 2014So DisplayMate "surprisingly" found yet again a display in a just announced Samsung ... moreI agree... DisplayMate are paid by Samsung... but not only that, they don't test devices regularly.. the last Sony display that was tested was the Xperia Z (which we know was dissapointing) and they haven't tested Z1 Compact, Z2 and so on...
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2014All Amoled screens are going to burn in! This is the nature of the technology.Not true. Galaxy s1/s2/ 2x note 1's/ galaxy s3/galaxy s4 + gs5 not one burn in minimum auto screen off time plus full brightness only wben needed or videos. Made me think rival phone manufacturers must be buying units, leaving them on full brightness on the same screen for weeks even whilst charging over never letting the sreen dim once, just to produce burn in so pictures can be shown on the internet to put samsung buyers off. Those nuisances troubled me for nothing, neither us nor any family friend or aquintance has ever had any sign of burn in on our phones....good ole blind face internet.
Iono , 15 Sep 2014agreeyeah its not like samsung ever cheated at something
So DisplayMate "surprisingly" found yet again a display in a just announced Samsung flagship to have the best of the best displays?
Sorry, but I'm 99,9% certain that Samsung pays these guys for a favorable reviews.

Anonymous, 15 Sep 2014It's easy to out-perform rivals when you're working with a tiny, low-resolution screen.agree
Strange how Samsung used to get low scores when they were not a customer of Displaymate, and suddenly they became one of their clients and now all Samsung displays are the best ever? Now that really smells fishy!

Did you say that on purpose or just not use your head?
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2014the difference is the iphone out performs its cross rivals in performance tests, which is the ... moreB plz , it was faster performances isn't only about opening facebook ,youtube playing games. The camera of the galaxy s5 out performs the i phone 5s's in pictures and filming . the battery test of the samsung out performs the battery of the iphone 5s . The only time iphone 5s wins is at close shots but thats useless sinds you got front camera's now b . And the most important categorie where samsung wins are simply it's features , iphone ain't water resistant , iphone can't boost download , iphone can't use ultra power saving mode . and we can go on iphone has no micro sd slot , hahaha i'll never buy iphone but i have nothing against you buying it . I'm just giving my opinion based from test's i have seen done , and checked on gsm arena
