    Good enough reason for me. Hell, I mostlikely cant tell the difference between Pentile and non Pentile. In my opinion my Pre's screen is decent. Lol

    Don't buy it myself. Not sure it even matters.
    Glad to find out they expect the Samoled + in my Skyrocket to fail soon though.

    Good PR spin, and total bs. I'm sure HD SAMOLED+ is ready in their labs, just not in time to mass produce for the GS3, or maybe it was too expensive. We'll see it soon enough in the next Samsung phone.

    It doesn't matter though, the whole Internet is up in arms about such a tiny issue.

    Eh....PR spin. See the screen for yourself before you decide if it's good or bad.

    I can buy it. Not knowing much about SAMOLED nitty gritty, non-pentile displays are more tightly packed. Each sub-pixel creates heat. It could be the added heat from 33% increase in sub-pixels will cause fast wearing displays in an XHDPI phone. A WVGA phone has larger pixels and more room to breath.

    Not saying it's the truth, but there is a nugget of believably to it. Still one of my biggest complaints though.

    Yes...exactly. All the tech terms mean nothing.
    Eye test is paramount.
    I don't appreciate the spin, though.
    Kevin-do you know anything about this report of i9500 being Tizen device with Samoled + display?

    I don't buy it. I got my Epic 4G on December 2010. The Epic 4G has a pentile display. About two months ago the display has become unable to work properly at max brightness; if I crank it up it flickers like crazy when displaying white. I've never had any other display of any kind do that to me, and it's especially worrisome as 15 months is still within the carrier contract time...

    Deal breaker for me! I think I would pass on this and get the HTC One X if I was in the market for the "best phone" right now.

    Don't get the white one. The material picks up dirt. They say it cleans off, but will discolor over time.

    Exactly. I really don't care what the screen technology is if the phone looks good in my hand.

    Does the GT-i9500 has a Super AMOLED HD Plus display? | SamMobile
    Not specifically but it makes sense. Could also be that the HD SAMOLED+ would've made the device too expensive for carriers. Just guessing there.

    Kevin.. I take it you were in London or at New Orleans and saw the GS3 first hand? I'm curious how the screen compares to the Skyrocket, and if there is the same blue cast on white backgrounds.

    As to the One X, for me it's a bit scary reading about how many people are having both software and hardware problems, seeing light leaks from around the screen, WiFi issues, poor HD video rendering, etc. I sincerely doubt I'll be even thinking about the One X until they work out these QC/software issues. I also am not fond of the sealed back which reminds me of my current iPhone. I had to exchange this damned thing FIVE times due to battery problems, which is something I sure don't want to experience again.. That's my $.02

    Muaaahahahaha..

    Saying that the GS3 and One X are made out of the same material. (Im not sure if the finish on the devices are the same though so it might not happen but) Does this mean my precious white Galaxy could also get stained? I've never seen anything like this happen so I doubt it but just wondering.

    Good question. I know Sammy used "hyperglaze" on the SGS3, but nobody seems to know what that means.
    Sorry for getting us started off topic.

    The whole statement Samsung issued about the Galaxy S III display im begining to think was a load of BS. Samsung was just trying to cover up the fact they went cheap on the screen since its been discovered that Samsung's prototype TIZEN phone has suposedly a Super AMOLED HD Plus display with a RGB matrix. That being said the GS3's display is still quite beautiful.

    Keyword -prototype. Comments at the source seem to indicate low quality of the screens.
    I think that is what they were really talking about. The HD + screens still need to be developed fully for mass production. Still honing the process to provide a quality screen that will last.
    Don't think he intended to say the lower res plus screens will not last.
    Don't technically think he's bs'ing. Just was not said very well. Do not think they want to publicly admit to HD + problems either.

    Oh I understand what you ment so its ok. Yes perhaps Samsung hasnt fully perfected HD+ screens and the Tizen prototype is perhaps just a device used to test out how well the HD+ screen performs. I think we could see it introduced later on this year in future GS3 variants, the next Nexus phone since Samsung is going to make it or perhaps they'll come out with a Galaxy Note II

    It's pretty simple - SAMOLED+ tech is not ready for mass production. If you must have that screen, wait ~6 months and you'll get it in the next Samsung phone for sure. Most definitely in the Nexus.

    I've never seen a company be so hated and criticized for something so minor which is completely beyond their control.

    If one of the other OEMs has this issue like say HTC people would act the same way. Sometimes people set high expectations for a new product when the manufactuer makes a big hype out of it. This is what has happened with the Galaxy S III because for the few weeks prior to its launch Samsung hyped it up big time.

    /\/\/\ True, but people rely and believe to much what they read and hear. Look how pissed people were when they announced the specs of the IPhone4S. They were so hyped on the possibilities of the IPhone 5 that anything less was going to get ripped on. But Apple still made Billions.
    Based on what i have seen(not seen the new gs3 or 1x) Sammy makes the best screens and the total package as a whole, Sammy makes the Best phones. IMO. At the end it comes down to user experience. If you had a GS phone and loved it you will love this too. Depending on what Sprint gets i will get this or the Note2.

    Well I dont know about a Galaxy Note 2 but Sprint is going to get a GS3 since a leaked document showed a mysterious Samsung SPH-L710 for Sprint that has specs that matches up with the Galaxy S III. Until the phone is officialy released and people begin to use it in the real world, we are basing our opinions on the handfull of reviews circulating around the Internet.

    Longer lasting screen? How long do they anticipate people using the same phone? Would the screen go out within 2 years if they used some newer technology? It just doesn't make sense. I would wager that most people actually upgrade when their contract is up, I'd hope for 2 years of screen life out of any current technology.
