Samsung's Super AMOLED display ad gives us a backstage peek

09 March, 2010
In case you've missed it, Samsung announced the be-all-and-end-it-all display at this year's MWC. Dubbed Super AMOLED it comfortably outdoes every other mobile phone display we have seen so far...

Sort by:


its very kickass moblie for me!!!


i think its a best phone i"ve ever seen because it has all the new features like - bluetooth 3.0,scratch resistant surface,hd video recording and playing,an very improved ui with smooth response and finally a powerfull 1ghz humming bird processor & it is 3x more powerfull than an ordinary psp..>this phone will definately compete the new nokia neightn and hopefully beat it>>>>>

  • iPhone, N900, WM use

Anonymous, 11 Mar 2010Keep dreaming on LooooL, by the way the iphone users still ... moreYes, the HD2 is the most luxurious feeling smartphone i have touched, yet, at the end of the day, I wish for the super Nokia N990 dream phone, but TODAY, the iphone 3GS is the best phone.

The HD2 is like having a Buggati Veyron (the fastest car), but left in a recently bombed city in the middle east, with nowhere to go or to do. I tried to download Skyfire in the HD2 and ended lost in some lost Windows Folder i finally found after lots of trials and errors. A really third world, and total idiotic experience, only allowed by people that haven't realized yet that the are better ways.

The N900 is like being left free in a huge Radio Shack store, where you are free to make what ever you what about it, but still not much to do, and not much fun either.

The iPhone is horrible compared to the HD2, but it wonderful Unix software under the hood of the iphone, 150,000 apps+, First class user grade experience make is like been left in Disneyland and Epcot center, the size of the United States (courtesy of the 150,000 apps), makes it better at the end of the day. You are not that free, but not hopeless either.

The N900 is way more powerfull than both. I have complete OpenOffice, and GIMP (a complete Photoshop program). It has the same main processor than the iPhone 3GS, and more co-processor, yet, the iPhone Nintendo emulator runs faster in the iPhone, the YouTube downloaded videos runs smoother on the iPhone as well. Even Multitasking is more responsive on the iPhone (courtesy of ProSwitcher free software).

Everything that the iPhone missed, it comes to it very fast. Android way of unlocking, PalmPre way to handle multitasking and switching between open apps.... everything comes to the iPhone...

Web pages are all becoming iPhone compatible. There is an iPhone App for everything.

What is the use of the best screen like, the one in the Samsung's Omnia HD, with its 600 Mhz OS is the slowest web browser of all? Just sell the screen for the iPhone 4GS :) or the Nokia N990 or make yourself a nice Android phone :)

The N900 nintendo emulator is Slow, and if one find one's legally owned game in the internet, the N900 doesn't come with a unZIP program to use it from the device!!! (I had to install another linux OS just to do it, albeit it was easier to do than finding the Skyfire in the HD2).

While the iPhone Nintendo emu, takes you by the hand, in the same App, to get your legaly owned ROM in the web and unZip, and store it neatly for you. First class experience. Nothing less is expected in this perfect world.

While installing in a HD2 is a horror/mystery story, in the iPhone's RockApp for contrast, is a total pleasure to install things, one can install many things and cue them and continue browsing while installing.... Something IMPOSSIBLE on most other phones. (in the N900 the App. manager allows just 1 install, and becomes unresponsive).

The war is over by now. The iPhone won. Hardware is just one side of the story. (And now days, the least important).

Maemo/MeeGo and Android are coming... but in the next movie/chapter/century/life
Window Mobile is dead (And not HTC Flow additive can be enough to hide it).
Even Microsoft is making a radicall new Zune OS. (Yet it cannot publicly kill it, otherwise all its partners would never believe in it).

Its an iPhone world.
Get used to it.
There is no way back.

The wave may be a very strong competitor, but with the bada os LoooooooooooooooooooL, no offence dude, but it turned it from a wolf to a sheep :D.

So don't you even dare talk about the HD2, because its beyond your lovely small midget wave :)

  • Jef

Is Samsung the only manufacturer that uses AMOLED screens ?
Sony-Ericsson, Apple, Nokia,HTC. They are still using LCD TFT screens ?

  • Jaco

If the iphone 4g has faster processor and a super amoled with smudge proof coating and 5 megapixel camera with LED flash then i will prob go for it instead of a samsung wave.

Although if its missing one of those feature's then i wont lol.

  • Apple > samsung

It's totally true, samsung wave may be the iphone real killer, but not the upcoming 4g iphone killer ;)

So enjoy the wave for one month, and then apple will crush you again lol. And wait a year to beat apple, and then apple beats you again.

Don't you get it samsung users? Apples owns samsung all the way.

And let the game begin :P

  • xdb123

Cheers to Samsung. Right now it may be have better display than iphone but to be a iphone killer it should beat iphone in every features ie. speed of applications, brower, virtual keyboard etc.

  • Andy Burgin

O.k this might look very good indeed from Samsung,but if these screen are not very rigid an break easily i bet they cost alot to Replace,after Experiencing having a Samsung mobile an Breaking the Lcd Screen,the cost of replacing the screen is the Most Expense to Replace in the Mobile market,so i would like to see the price of replacing the New Wave Lcd Screen if its gets broken i bet its more than £100,So this screen intervention better be solid from SAmsung

Anonymous, 09 Mar 2010For a company that bases their philosophy around hardware, ... moreyou might not have known that this is not the only product they invented. They are leading in semiconductor, display and mobile side, where do you think your SSD come from. mobile processor coming from? Where do you think Sony TV gets their panel from? Samsung investment budget is large enough to bring any american bank from dead to live. at $25 billion a year, its the same amount of cash apple is sitting on.

hmm.. regaarding cracking of screen... but to my understanding, OLED is dubbed as next generation display because of its flexibility. meaning it could be bend without breaking? correct me if im wrong

  • Niraj

I think that Samsung wave is the first real Iphone killer and it is suberb than Iphone 3gs is all aspect, even in the UI it is better than Iphone, as Samsung says that it has a new gen UI.
Waiting for Iphone 4g to come...
But it has to say that by this Wave now Iphone's era is over...
Good Job Samsung...
