A30s has diamond matrix? Wow. Better than my A70 i guess

S10E has samsung's diamond matrix (much better than Pentile matrix) so of course it will be sharper and much better than iPhone XR or even 11 Pro. This is why s10 is much more expensive and different than A70

You should see it for yourself. The a50s and A70 both have pentile matrix and feel less sharper than most 1080p phones. Heck even the Xr feels sharper. However, thanks to the 1080p resolution the pentiles cannot be seen . I have the 6GB blue version
