    They also overload blue because of that quicker burn out rate, no?

    The black splotches were less alarming; but having an almost always blue top bar (where the status bar is) is somewhat...depressing.
    They make the blue pixels larger and optimize the overall device structures for blue to make it last longer. This is what limits them. There are solutions for this but samsung has not been able to make the changes yet because of money and time restraints. Those solutions will be available in the tvs though as they made the changes while still putting together the factories.

    I will say that seeing the OLED tv's at CES was impressive. I thought to myself "if only they could do that with phones...." I don't write any technology off, because you never know when a breakthrough can happen and make it relevant again. Just right now, OLED has a lot of ground to cover.

    And for those saying that the N4 screen is washed out, they don't perform any calibration at the factory, so yours might be, but mine isn't. Also, the One X screen is still noticeably better than the N4. Especially side by side.

    People keep saying that but mine doesn't. Lots of people were using apps to tweak the colors etc but mine looks really good. Just not as good as the HTC OneX

    How do you go on about calibrating the screens?

    for me Samoled screens are the best, i love the colors and everything about it, and i love the Screen on my GS3, i hope the GS4 keeps getting better.

    both have their advantages/disadvantages.
    I love the brightness and crispness and tru colors of the LCD's
    but i love the true blacks and "pop" of the SAMOLED screens.

    i think they are going to stick with SAMOLED because its what they have been doing for the past 4 years.....and it has been working.
    Just make it "zero gap" and 1080P with a rounded glass (not curved) and i would be sold.

    I had the HTC EVO LTE, but I went through several replacements due to HW issues and finally ended up with a Samsung Galaxy S3. The first thing I noticed was that the SGS3 screen was barely readable outdoors,while the HTC was very readable. If I'm to stay with Samsung, they've got to change the screen. Period. I'm able to upgrade anyday now on my second line, and I'm leaning towards the new HTC One, but we'll see.

    There is an app called Faux123 that allowed you to do calibration but apparently it won't work anymore in 4.2.2. But there is also another one called screen adjuster that will allow some adjustments. Not gamma though.

    Even on full brightness I can't see the screen at all on my S3 in daylight. I welcome the switch if it happens.

    Agreed, If I can't see my phone in the sun I don't care how beautiful it is in a dark room.

    Here is a prediction of sorts. Whatever technology is strongest in the flexible screen market will more than likely be the next big thing. I believe right now that is the OLED even if the market is young for that tech, they are showing a lot of promise.

    You won't see lcd screens that are really flexible because the require many layers. Such as back lightning and color filters. You may see some that flex but they won't be able to be rolled up.

    Talking about samoleds, is it even possible to produce one 1080p at the moment? Because most of the rumors I heard about using a different technology in gs4 is just because making a samoled 1080p is very difficult

    Yeah it's possible ...it wasn't that its difficult, its they were not yet geared up to mass produce it. I don't know if they got it up and running ill find out along with everyone else

    At the moment, an amoled screen equals a no go for me. Simple as that.
    I like the the true blacks and the battery savings when using a black background. I once managed almost 5 days on a single charge with my HTC desire. The disadvantages however are just too numerous at this point in time (for me at least).
    Visibility in full sunlight is not really up to par. The colors, while vibrant, are far from accurate and color balance shifts over time. But the thing that I find most annoying, and the reason I sold my desire after only 6 months, is the pentile subpixel arrangement. It makes text look jagged and certain colors just look like crap (I remember red being the worst offender in this department).
    I admit the old desire was pretty low res, but it's also very visible on the current s3 (holding the phone at a normal distance). To me, that screen just doesn't look like it's 720p. For this reason I truly hope the new s4 dumps the amoled screen in favor of a regular lcd.
    I suspect RGB amoled screens are better in this respect but I haven't had the chance yet to see one of these in person. The weird subpixel arrangement makes me wary though.

    These are just my personal views on the screen debate. Everyone has different priorities so if you like the current crop of amoled displays, more power to you. That's why we have choice

    Amoled vs SLCD again no brainer, one of the worst features about Samsung phones along with cheap plastic and tinny sounding speakers. Samsung learn from your mistakes don't be stingy.

    Well, judging by the leaks and rumors, it looks like the American version will get snapdragon 600 with LCD and the rest of the world an Exynos with the so called pholed display..
    Even though it's just rumors, it does make a bit of sense..

    Where did you hear that it is getting pholed. I'm surprised they would use that term.

    Google "samsung s4 pholed" there's plenty of sources, but whether that is true, we'll see in 4 days

    It has always been amazing to me that reviewers don't ever seem to comment on the poor quality of AMOLED when reviewing phones. They will actually make a point to say it looks good. Ugh.

    I'm certain the S4 will be AMOLED, but it won't be PenTile. Look at the Note 2, even though it has a relatively low ppi, it looks fine as its not PenTile and uses uniform subpixels.

    I just hope the blotches from the display assembly (which is on every AMOLED screen, just look at a black screen with low brightness in a dark room), is going away.

    Green pholed is my teams material. Red is already pholed .blue is fluorescent. when all three are phosphorescent power savings will be outstanding.
    My company only focuses on device architecture and phosphorescent materials which in the long run will completely replace fluorescent materials in oled's and in turn change lighting industry across the board not just displays but room lighting aswell.

    Like it or not OLEDs are your future. Eventually you will all like it when it matures commercially

    ^if it provides a superior product, so be it. On phones, I've seen nothing that rivals the clarity of LCD.

    The problem, is that the masses don't pay attention to the details. They are perfectly happy with mp3 quality, Amoled clarity, and charging mid-day. :rolleyes:

    It will get better . The technology is still in its infancy. clarity is based on the architecture they use not the OLED. Material itself. This can be seen with ultra high HD oled tvs.
