Untiop, 13 Sep 2021I'm pretty sure most of the people have not experience... moreCompletely agreed. I wonder if it is worth it to get the Pro version for the extra 500 mAh battery but is 27 g heavier.

rizki1, 13 Sep 2021No pros and cons not sure about it.That's like asking what are the pros and cons of sAMOLED, sAMOLED and sAMOLED? Do you get the point?

Rkm, 13 Sep 2021That's gonna be a long answer. I will try to be as sho... moreNo pros and cons not sure about it.

rizki1, 13 Sep 2021ok please explain to me what's different and pros and ... moreThat's gonna be a long answer. I will try to be as short as possible. Think of a hierarchy.
OLED is the parent. It is further classified into Active Matrix OLED (AMOLED) and Passive Matrix OLED (PMOLED). AMOLED uses a transistor film to control the OLEDs whereas PMOLED each raw is sequentially updated.

All phones uses AMOLED now. Creating further confusion LGs POLED is actually an AMOLED. The 'P' in that actually means Polymer/plastic because it is bendy or something.

Now Super AMOLED means the touch digitizer is integrated into the display. Unless your phone isn't that old in which, despite being an AMOLED the display is very thick, it is a Super AMOLED.

So all phones whether they say it's OLED/ AMOLED/ sAMOLED , are actually using sAMOLED panels.

Since all are the same technology, there are no pros and cons.

Rkm, 13 Sep 2021I wasn't comparing. I was using exaggeration to point ... moreok please explain to me what's different and pros and cos of OLED, AMOLED, sAMOLED panel.

rizki1, 13 Sep 2021are you really comparing note 10 pro max with over $500 pho... moreI wasn't comparing. I was using exaggeration to point out the fault in your logic that a52s has better display than edge 20 because a52s is super amoled and edge 20 is "simple" amoled. You can't say one is worse than other just because one has super slapped in front of them.

Rkm, 13 Sep 2021Note 10 pro max is a good example to choose. It's a su... moreare you really comparing note 10 pro max with over $500 phones??? surely it's better than note 10 my friend, it's $260 phones that means not fair. so can you telling me about $260 other phones with same panel like note 10 pro max?

rizki1, 13 Sep 2021of course it is better, note 10 pro max supports HDR10 and ... moreNote 10 pro max is a good example to choose. It's a super amoled, it's pretty bright, it can receive hdr10. But it's still a normal 8 bit display.
Whereas this moto and Samsung a52s uses 10bit, 1 billion colors, hdr10+, dcip3 panel. One of them is marketed as super and other isn't. You can't say one is worse than other just because one has super slapped in front of them.
Both of them are obviously better than the panel on redmi note 10 pro max.

This is Xperia 1 III for those says it is overpriced and don't need all it's features.

What good is a gaming Screen (144hz) that is not of much use other than gaming if you don't offer the full gaming setup. At least have a huge battery and stereo speakers. The Edge 20 seems positioned totally wrong imho. Also: Motorola should really work on 3+ years upgrades since this will be the biggest selling point of future android phones instead of trying to flood the market (like samsung and xiaomi) with tons of mediocre handsets.

I'm pretty sure most of the people have not experienced the in-hand feel of a slim, light weight...

Who doesn't want battery life? But still people, most of, who know what it's like to own a slim and lightweight phone will surely take it for slightly lesser battery life. That feel everytime you pick it up!! Instead of using the phone as a gadget, you'll start to love it. It'll be a joy to use the phone..

It's really worth the battery tradeoff, for me atleast.

Rkm, 13 Sep 2021Yeah. Aren't they better than "super" amoled... moreof course it is better, note 10 pro max supports HDR10 and 1200 nits thats something you cant found in any other phones with $260.

rizki1, 13 Sep 2021some xiaomi phones using samsung E4 amoled like mi 11 ultra... moreYeah. Aren't they better than "super" amoled used in redmi note 10, realme 8 etc?

Rkm, 13 Sep 2021No, my point is every phone is super amoled now . If the to... moresome xiaomi phones using samsung E4 amoled like mi 11 ultra, poco f3, redmi k40 so what's wrong?

rizki1, 13 Sep 2021only samsung use super amoled? look chinese phones they are... moreNo, my point is every phone is super amoled now . If the touch controls and digitizers are integrated, it's a super amoled.
Regarding branding Samsung have become lenient now with super amoled since they use "dynamic" branding for their flagship.
By your logic, devices which use e4/e5 amoled panels are inferior to those "super" amoled in Chinese phones.

Dudenoway, 13 Sep 2021Listen. There is a niche market for thin lightweight and co... moreNiche market is negligible, but why hamper big battery endurance market. For niche sake I don't want to run for wallcharger every 6hours.

Rkm, 12 Sep 2021Both displays are 10bit, hdr10+, dcip3 capable displays wit... moreonly samsung use super amoled? look chinese phones they are tons of super amoled phone, super amoled is developed from samsung and it is samsung made panel and OLED panel is mostly from LG or BOE.

Only marketing gimmick is the 144hz display. Other than that, pretty average phone with slightly over price.
