Anonymous, 29 Aug 2017Sony dont make tv panels, they buy them from lg and samsungThey buy the panels from AUO/Sharp/Samsung but still achieve better picture quality than Samsung/LG. Its now about which panel you use, its about how you use it.

Samsung's been top in screens for some time now. Too bad that their software and rest of hardware s*ck.

I expect mi mix 2 to *kill* this phone same as mix mix 1 killed note 7 (in battery life, responsiveness, support, screen to body ratio, etc).

"AMOLED is a display technology used in portable devices like mobile phones. Active-matrix OLED displays provide the same performance as their passive-matrix OLED counterparts, but they consume significantly less power.

This advantage makes active-matrix OLEDs well suited for portable electronics where battery power consumption is critical."

so there is you argument...

Had Samsung Amoled devices for quite a few years now. Galaxy S1, S3, S4 S6Edge and now S8 and have NEVER had any issue with the screens. They have all without exception been outstanding.

An... morepentile setup is the setup used in all oleds currently, while every lcd has 3 sub pixels, and some can even have 4... no matter of calibration can make oled differentiate between the shades of black.. i have galaxy s7 edge.. So i know.. dark scenes in movies look pitch dark.. and It is the best display panel in the world right now.. maybe note 8 now.. but all the same.. picture quality of oled is definitely good.. but it isnt better than qled.. Oleds have far too many disadvantages to be considered perfect..

DisplayMate always say this nonsense when the lastes Samsung flagship releases. They're just a fraud, scam site with paid reviews. In fact, Samsung's AMOLED is worse than IPS LCD.

They're like DxOMark who give more points for the phones with worse camera.
