    Hello all. I have owned all versions of the iPhone and the S3 will be my first android device. I have been watching countless videos on YouTube and have a question. Is the screen of the S3 possessing almost a blueish or grayish tint? It seems like the screens of the iPhone, One X, etc appear much whiter and brighter in the videos I have seen. Is that accurate? Perhaps this is due to the amoled screen. Any thoughts or opinions on this would be great.
    Thank you!

    Amoled does not produce whites as well as an lcd display. So yes that is right. I personally like the deeper blacks and higher saturation of the samoled displays but the display one the one x is probably the best overall display on a phone at the moment.

    Just wanted to add that it the color difference on white is a lot less noticeable when you don't have both phones side by side comparing.

    The blueish tint is due to the PenTile display that Samsung (sadly) decided to use. Notice the increase in blue sub-pixels:


    The benefit of AMOLED over LCD is you get deeper blacks and better battery life. But as seen in that pic, the S3 screen has some flaws as well

    I have a Samsung Fascinate (Galaxy S1). The screen technology, resolution, and pixel density of the S3 are all superior to what I have now. I don't think I have ever looked at my screen and thought the whites look blueish.

    In actual use you won't notice it at all unless you convince yourself to. You will, however, be amazed in how dark the blacks get. That I marvel at all the time still.
