    Yes it is. Compared to the HTC One and Sony, the S4 is going to have horrible pixelation up close.



    Your point?

    The iPhone is from the last generation of phones. It competed with the S3 and had more PPI.
    Blackberry Z10 is a lost cause.

    The whole thing comes down to what the S4 competes with: the HTC One. And at the end of the day the S4 pentile display is going to be pixelated and grainy.
    Yeah but are you going to really use your phone right up to your face so your practically sticking it into your eye? Obviously not, when using the s3 at normal distance its difficult to see the pixels and thr s4 has an extra 135 pixels per inch. So you aren't going to see these pixels

    Not only are the pixels per inch increased but you're talking a completely different pentile layout than the s3. Go ahead and shove that screen into your face and tell me it's a problem. Will it be the best screen ever? I doubt it. Well it be "horrible"? Please.... Far from it

    Funny thing is while the first pic I can see the pixels the second pic is blurry as hell. I'll take seeing pixels over the blurriness.

    Also people argue that the S3 still has one of the best screens to date, and the S4 is a full 1080p of goodness, like I said 130+ more pixels per inch than the s3, the only time your going to see these pixels is if your going to look down a microscope.

    Funny those complaining about pentile have no clue it isn't even the same layout, it's the diamond layout of pixels. How about you go actually use one and then judge it.

    PenTile sucks, plain and simple. I upgraded from a RAZR HD (4.7" 720 PenTile AMOLED) to a Note 2 (5.5" 720 RGB AMOLED) and it looks amazingly better. Even with a lower PPI it looks night and day better.

    So, PenTile sucks....and so does the screen blobs on every AMOLED panel.
    Moto screens were always worse with the jaggedness on their screens compared to others.

    When you say "up close", you are referring to a jeweler's loupe? Because that's the only way your sentence makes sense.

    Why do people think that every manufacturer's implementation of PenTile displays is the same?

    IMHO I think the S3 looks better when looking at text than the Note 2 and the S3 has a pentile display, okay it does have 306ppi vs 267ppi but the pentile is meant to look more pixelated so a 441ppi pentile display isnt going to look pixelated at all.

    "The somewhat underwhelming first impression however all but changed when we switched on that gorgeous 5" FullHD AMOLED display. The thing is absolutely stunning - every AMOLED fan will love it and even those who aren't too fond of the oversaturated colors will have to admit that it's a brilliant piece of engineering. And don't worry - as usual, Samsung has included a setting to tune the saturation down for a more natural look." GSM Arena
