    With the G4 boasting a sharp display of its own and with claims of more accurate color production, which display is the better of the two? I know that the Note 5's display will be ridiculous, but in terms of being easiest on the battery, has LG made strides, or is Samsung still champ?

    We'll have to wait and see... once the reviews start rolling in, I am sure we'll see some numbers and tests.

    We won't know until someone other than LG compares them. If you want to get the actual numbers for it, wait for DisplayMate or AnandTech's results

    Hopefully it's an improvement over the G3 screen for colors and brightness which was one of the few things that the note 3 and 4 had over the G3. A improved screen will make it the best phone in this size group.

    Sadly. It was the reason why I sold my G3 when Samsung released the Note 4. I thought the G3 was dull when I compared it.

    I'm looking forward to checking it out when it comes out up here.

    I am not sure how much more accurate it can get. The s6 and Note 4 are very very good. Even if it is better, I don't think that most people would be able to tell. Biggest improvement that I am hoping for is a improvement in battery life. Lg makes promises. Hopefully they will deliver.

    The thing about technology is we always ask ourselves how can it possibly get better til it actually does. Screen tech has no option but to get better. I'd bet anything all the manufacturers have screens already made that blows current stock a way by comparison. Its just a matter of strategy when to introduce it.

    The point is diminishing returns. Will it get better? Yes. Will the general public be able to tell the difference between the s6 screen accuracy and a more accurate screen, when not set side by side? Not likely.

    I just think that while the higher pixel displays on phones look great, we are sacrificing power efficiency for a ridiculous number of indiscernible pixels. This, along with keeping phones paper thin in some cases, does nothing for a phone's longevity, especially with sealed batteries.

    When I see the S6 and iPhone 6 plus screen look the same and both screens are noted for their color accuracy, it makes me think the G4 is doing some color enhancement that may or may not be desirable.

    Definitely some over saturation going on there. I'd like to see some white colors on the displays.

    How is making strawberries, which are naturally red -- look red on a screen -- an undesirable thing? Samsung and Apple have been selling us orange strawberries all along and everyone accepted it as the gospel. LG is simply saying the emperors have no clothes and as it turns out they are correct.

    I've certainly never seen strawberries that red. The S6 and iPhone 6+ have the most accurate displays to date. I would like to see the actual strawberries before judging, but I'd bet the S6 and iPhone are closer. When someone does a review or comparison, we'll see the other colors as well. For now, it looks like a very oversaturated display (which a lot of people definitely prefer)

    I've seen plenty of deep dark red strawberries since I grow them... and as far as over saturation.. Nope those colors are as realalistic as they get.

    This exactly. LG G3 was more accurate with colors than Samsung but ppl were used to the oversaturation and accepted it as normal. A lot of the reviews said the G3 screen looked washed out when in fact it was the most accurate screen on the market. I like both manufacturers and have also come to lean towards the oversaturated Samsung screen, but still accept LG for what they are. It has come down to preference, not actually what is "better."

    The S5 and Note 4 were both more accurate than the G3. You can check AnandTech or Display Mate's tests to confirm that

    You can't know if it's "realistic" without having seen the actual strawberries. I'm sure there are some that get darker red than others, but seeing as the iPhone 6+ and S6 have extremely accurate displays, and the G3 had an oversaturated one, I think it's fair to say the G4's looks oversaturated there. But we'll know soon enough

    I've read reports on both sides. Preference sells more than specs. That's all I was pointing out.

    I remember being on the Amoled side of things and seeing LCD displays as 'washed out' and not 'bright' enough but after owning the G3, I understand what the other side was saying. When I see my dads Note 4 display now, to me, the colors look way too bright and saturated. Its simply become a matter of preference for me now.

    Well...its a choice. People like colors.. rich reds and blues, bright colors.. stuff that jumps out at you. Fact is that life is kind of washed out. The world is often colored a little dull and drab and plain. Personally, I thinking fussing over how accurate a screen misses the point. Who uses their phone as a reference device. How many of us are professional graphic designers or photographers that need to see everything on the screen as 100% color accurate?

    There's nothing wrong with burping up the saturation a bit.

    Well I can say from using just about all the different types of screens that having a accurate representation of the actual colors displayed makes the viewing a better experience. Most people don't know what is real and what is enhanced these days since most often they are used to inaccurate colors shown not only on their phones but also on their TV. Once they see the difference most opt for accuracy over the normal "torch mode"...

    True to life colors and what this display actually shows is fantastic IMHO and I fully expect more oems go this route instead of making things look like a cartoon. I also feel that this phone is going to shake a few foundations for what others will be judged by in more than one way.

    It won't set well with Apple or Samsung fans since they have enjoyed being the best for quite a while and I expect to see more crying done by them than any other groups.

    I guess you don't read a lot about new displays because the Quad HD displays in the G4 and the S6 are more power efficient than their own previous displays..

    The G3's screen was the most accurate screen on the market? Who fed you that lie? Check DisplayMate, Anandtech, or even Erica Griffin because what you just said was completely untrue.

    But the G3 is the one with a saturated display. The tint is probably what makes the G3 look more "dull" to you. But the Note 4's display is more accurate than what the G3 has.
