    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.
