A few days ago, just after the iPhone 5 launch, we compared the new iOS device with the Galaxy S3 in a series of posts (drop test, video comparison, benchmarking results and display tests) and…
Much has been said about the Samsung Galaxy S4. In fact, we ourselves have written over 20,000 words about it in articles published in the last 24 hours. We've talked about its camera, its wireless features, its software add-ons, and a whole lot more. But what about its display? What level of quality was Samsung able to forge into its 4.99-inch multi-touch capable screen? Well, Ray Soneira, president of display analysis and software calibration company DisplayMate, weighed in on a recently published article on CNET to say that things are looking pretty good for Samsung in the Galaxy S4′s screen department.
To be more specific, Soneira praised Samsung's inclusion of what is referred to as a CIE Chromaticity Diagram and grayscale for the adaptive screen settings found on the Galaxy S4. This roughly translates to the phone's capability of showing more naturally pristine colors instead of the bluish whites that Samsung screens have tended to show in the past.
In other words, the Samsung Galaxy S4′s touchscreen display will be very interesting to watch not merely for its high pixel density (441 ppi) and use of a full high-definition panel on a 5-inch screen. We may have to wait a little further until we can get our hands on one for a proper review before issuing a final verdict, but for now, it looks like it's safe to say that the Super AMOLED panel used on the latest Samsung flagship Android phone is the best one yet.
