    It's hard to find information on the screen tech that HTC uses. My best guess would be (aside from the resolution) would be improved color accuracy and contrast ratio. But honestly it might just be the resolution.

    Both of those things are touted as well as improved power efficiency

    I find my s3 screen has so much better and saturated colour than any lcd on the market, the only thing I find bad about the pentile samoled is the brightness and how bad the screen is in the sun

    Better by what definition? Not better technically, as per measured tests. But a LOT of people prefer the look of AMOLED displays because they are generally "cooler" and the colors "pop" more because of the over saturation.

    Behold The Samsung Galaxy S4. With a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M color and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, 5.0 inches (~441 ppi pixel density)
    Oh when will they come out with a Super AMOLED+ HD screen. It's 2013 Come on! I'll have to research it. It's been a year since this post.

    Thin is over rated, and always comes at the expense of battery capacity.

    Give me a couple more millimeters of battery please.

    Honestly I prefer the Samsung amoled screens on android phones. It just "wows" people when they see the vibrant colors. But I prefer the retina displays on the iPhone 4s/5.

    For me it would only matter if I'm choosing a CRT (massive, fat tv screen) or a chronographic screen (if I don't have the name wrong its the screen you see on scientific calculators and old old phones)

    Though I'd prefer to stay away from OLED, they tend to leave image burns or ghost images on white.

    AMOLEDs have better colors, contrast and all but the whites are putting me off. It's either they're inaccurate (bluish, pinkish) or just plain dirty (yellowish, brownish). So I prefer IPS LCD.

    I had 2 HTC Desires a few years ago, my first one was AMOLED and I gave that to my father and got a second Desire, second one turned out to have SLCD (and that was when HTC ran out of AMOLED displays in their batch), I recognized the difference immediately- AMOLED seems to have a more white than SLCD. The SLCD's white seems like a cream color. The Optimus LTE was IPS (same as iPad 1st and 2nd gen) and HTC One X was SLCD then going to the Moto X which is AMOLED I couldn't believe the difference, with AMOLED, if I'm reading something on the browser then I look up at the TV or computer screen, everything looks orange or pink for a few seconds and that didn't happen with SLCD or IPS.

    hello wellcome to this forum I recently read an ad HTC has comparing the SAMOLED screen and the SLCD2 screen of the One X. They included a picture of the One X screens ability to actually produce the color white.

    I think, like others have said, the white is what tells the screens apart. With the super high resolution screens that are being used, pentile is no longer the huge issue it used to be, especially with samsung going to the diamond layout of pixels. Now do many wish pentile in general would go away? I am sure they do, but for now and with the 2k rumored displays for this years devices, I think the white balance of SAMOLED is what needs to be fixed and then it won't be such a low point for those screens.

    Back when this post was started three years ago, I used to prefer LCD. But now both technologies have improved so much, that both look great. All the high end screens have converged to great displays.

    The color on the samsung devices are over saturated, i have compared them with the iphones (that have excellent screen with excellent color) and its a huge diference. Nokia phones have better colors too, more closed than iphones.

    Just depends on what you like. Some people LOVE the over saturated amoled displays that Samsung uses.

    There is a setting on samsung phones that let's you change the color saturation

    I have just "upgraded" from Samsung Galaxy S2 (800x480 non-Pentile Super Amoled Plus) to Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus (1920x1080 Pentile Super Amoled), and I am grossly disappointment with the display. The phone itself is very nice and I am keeping it, Snapdragon 805 with Adreno 420 with only FullHD Res makes everything render very fast, but compared to the old SGS2 display, I have these issues:

    - Grainy colors, especially shades of pink, cyan, purple. Not surprising if you realize that a picture without green color whatsoever renders on half the nominal resolution, and that is 960x540!)
    - Noticeable color shift with viewing angles, also not present on SGS2. Head on there is a yellowish tint all over the display that disappears even with small angle.
    - Visible errors on greyscale, pinkish shades of grey
    - Picture quality drop in low brightness conditions - more grainy, dirty colors.

    Basically, the viewing angles color shift and "dithered" quality of certain colors remind me of the cheap old TN LCD panels.

    Obviously, in an attempt to reduce costs and prolong the life of the troubled blue subpixels, samsung have gutted the promising Amoled technology by removing one third of the subpixels and pretending "it's okay". It's not okay, a pentile display of the same nominal resolution as RGB stripe display has noticeably lower rendering quality. I consider this practice dishonest and deceptive, since only resolution, not matrix type is stated in specs.
