Specifically, it uses 408 Red sub-pixels per inch (1.8 million in total), 577 Green sub-pixels per inch (3.7 million in total) & 408 Blue sub-pixels per inch (1.8 million in total). As a result, diamond pen tile sub-pixel layout displays have only half the number of Red & Green sub-pixels in comparison to a standard RGB sub-pixel layout display. The only time Samsung used a standard RGB sub-pixel layout in its S series smartphones was in Samsung Galaxy S2, in which the display used had the designation Super Amoled Plus. Super Amoled is self explanatory while the Plus designation meant that up to now it was the only time Samsung married its Super Amoled technology with a standard RGB sub-pixel layout. Based on the S series history, I don't think that Samsung will ever use a standard RGB sub pixel layout again since it hasn't done so for the last 5 generations in a row (Galaxy S3/S4/S5/S6/S7).

I'm sure S7 series has nice display but these tests from 'DisplayMate' are noting to talk about. Displaymate is unreliable and non-scientific, not to mention hey don't even 'test' every flagship screen out there.

Talking about percentage of sales does not equate to judgement on best mobile display.
What is wrong with you people?!

Lg for example sells loads more than microsoft, where is it?

That site is bogus refference for mobile displays

Samsung, Apple and others (ok microsoft)... how many other OEMs we have on earth? and how many smartphone they make and how many overall in the world? they aren't lazy of course! choosing only few smartphone from selected popular brand than put all over it in test. combining Apple, Samsung and microsoft smartphone sale is like upto 70%. it is awkward if they choose any from 30%? then if any of them are better they put their reputation more worse! that's make more sense isn't it?

testing only apple, microsoft and samsung displays.
And nobody notices that flaw in testing judgement
Its like testing about 5% of overall mobile displays out there and claiming one of that 5% is best in the world, or what?!?

How in the sane mind can someone rely on this info?
