Don , 18 Aug 2013What about S4 and Note2 screens? Can you compare the two of them for me too? ThanksI am not a professional reviewer by the way but yeah this is an easy one.
look note 2 has 720 by 1280 pixels display spread over 5.5 inches. It grants it a pixel density of around 257ppi which is rather too low for a high end phone and hence I can easily see individual pixels and hence the screen doesn't look good. it is not pentile though and it means it has full set of subpixels but that too at this pixel density is not enough.
In contrast, s4's screen is the best Samsung has produced till date. it has a 1080 by 1920 display over a smaller screen of 5 inches giving it an incredible 441 ppi and hence pentile or not doesn't matter. You can't see individual pixels no matter how hard you try. It looks like a homogenous surface. and that's what we want.
In other areas also s4 wins . It has more natural and pleasant colors, it can display accurate whites and it has a great color gamut.
look note2's screen is also great but s4's is incredible. There is no competition between these 2.

At this 441ppi it really doesn't matter whether it's pentile or not. furthermore If you are a displaymate fan then you must know about diamond pixels and how Samsung had improved pentile display.
pentile have long lifespan and consume less power. Further , now tests by displaymate shows that now amoled can show natural colours. so there is no weak point left of pentile.
do you even know how sharp s4's screen is. It's more than anyone can see. so please stop complaining about sharpness.
really I can't stop laughing at you and your half knowledge and pretending that you are advanced and others are fool. You may be the only person on this planet who claims that s4's screen is not sharp enough lol.
and at last, the lcd in s4 active was considered a downgrade along with the camera.
Please go to a good doctor.

S4 screen has more natural colours than previous version galaxies, this is really good achievement for s4 and Samsung .
Do you work for Samsung or what? Don't worry, I know the screen details of the phones very well as I am a displaymate fan. Pentile is something unnatural and it is the cheaper way to produce screens. My first preference would be a real RGB Samoled screen with full hd resolution if possible and secondly an Ips screen. If S4 Active had the FM Radio, I would have preferred it, because it's non-pentile and therefore assumably sharper as it has more subpixels with the same resolution.

The s4 has 320 ppi for red and blue and 441 for green. hence thrashing your s2 in all three areas which has a subpar pixel density and pixilated oversaturated screen. which has 213 for all.
note 3 won't have fm radio as most people don't actually use it according to Samsung. I use it though.
buy a cheap fm radio worth 3 or 4 dollars.
s4 totally demolishes your s2 in screen comparison. don't act oversmart. I know more about technical matters than you. If you don't wanna 'downgrade' your phone . don't. No one is forcing you here.

I think Samsung have abandoned FM-radio on most of their Androids, including Note 3, and that is bad because Internetradio drains the battery and not everyone have unlimited download data!
S4 screen is better than S2 screen!
Use "Triangle Away" to reset the flash counter and then install a stock Samsung firmware for your region, using Odin or Mobile Odin, and then your warranty... is back after rooting...!
The lack of the FM Radio and the pentile screen are hardware issues, so those aren't acceptable solutions. I own an s2 which both has FM Radio, a very good Samoled RGB screen and additionally supports Adobe Flash. So why should I DOWNGRADE my phone with switching to s4. Instead I will wait for the Note 3.

The pixel density is so high that you can't see that cross hatch pattern. also the arrangement is changed to Diamond shape which improves sharpness further.
I have excellent eyes(well above average) and I can't see individual pixels or cross hatches.
regarding fm radio I will say its a serious issue but you can buy a bluetooth headphone with radio.
so your both problems answered. any more??????
