There has been much debate around exactly what improvements Samsung has brought to the table with the Galaxy S3 over the S2 and a big part of that discussion has concentrated on the two smartphones’ displays.
While many users have agreed that the S3’s screen is a natural evolution from the S2’s panel, there have been more than a fistful of critics disagreeing with that opinion, which has led to Samsung officials issuing statements defending the new display.
Naturally, that hasn’t completely calmed the criticism “storm”, but maybe DisplayMate’s most recent in-depth analysis will manage to do just that. According to what looks like a [...]

We’ve all seen the power of the rumor mill, with the crazy speculation whirlwind that preceded the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S3.
While some of the pre-launch gossip was spot on (Exynos 4412 quad-core processor), some was, as expected, way off-base (2GB RAM). One rumor that had us all excited was the possibility that the Samsung Galaxy S3 would feature a Super AMOLED HD Plus display using the RGB matrix. With this type of display almost ready for production, our expectations weren’t unrealistic, but unfortunately, the final launch left display-fanatics quite disappointed.
Samsung, of course, is already anticipating the highly-successful launch [...]
Samsung has recently announced 2 new wonderphones for the South Korean market–the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE and the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE–just days before the original Samsung Galaxy S II had a chance to debut on the AT&T network.
Although the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE is exactly what it sounds like (i.e., an LTE version of the Galaxy S II), its HD partner is a different story.
Packing 4G LTE and a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen at 1280×720 resolution, the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE is going to be the “phone of phones.” Remember Apple’s Retina display? The 720p HD display on the Galaxy S II HD LTE will be blowing that completely [...]
Samsung Electronics announced just today in Seoul, South Korea, two of its upcoming LTE-capable Android smartphones–one of which might catch the attention of international eyes: the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE.
The other device is the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE, which features a screen size bigger than the first version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. The Samsung Galaxy S II LTE comes with a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen panel, while the earlier Samsung Galaxy S II came with only a 4.27-inch display. The display supports a resolution of 800×480 pixels.
The Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE, on the other hand, has a much bigger screen size–at 4.65 [...]
I don’t know how Samsung pulled it off, but some people can’t wait to get their hands on the upcoming 5.3″ smartphone. This has never happened with the Dell Streak which actually has a smaller screen, only 5″, although believe it or not, the Galaxy Note is actually 5mm shorter than the Dell Streak. This speaks volumes about Samsung’s ability to make these devices compared to Dell.
But actually, I do know how Samsung managed to make this huge phone so wanted – and that’s besides being a gorgeous device, having an HD Super AMOLED display, powerful dual core 1.4 Ghz chip.Bigger = Better
They managed to turn this into a [...]
