Actually.

Pixels per inch not dots per inch that would be printer speak.

Also you can make out pixels on the HTC Sensation screen without too much difficulty which is 256ppi.







Duh brah.

Sarcasm meter needs recalibration. I was actually agreeing with you.

Why can't they just sacrifice some contrast and "cartoony" colours for a higher resolution.
It's not all about resolution...
I personally prefer this Galaxy S 2 screen over the iphones as the contrast is simply the best I have ever seen compared to any apple devices... In complete dark especially...

If you like to put your phone an inch away from your eye to determine pixels then be my guest... Are you one who bought a 32inch 1080p screen? simply unnecessary...

Sure I agree that resolution is important(to have more on the screen), but with my resolution, I can bring up a webpage and display more on my 4.3 inch screen compared to the iphones and still be 'viewable' without a microscope... Not bashing the Retina display but I guess you can call it more of a personal preference...

Text never conveys sarcasm very well, the smiley face didn't help either.

Am I the one that bought a 32" 1080p screen ?, nope.avi where did you get that from ?


I'm sorry I just prefer clarity over unnatural overhyped colours.

Also the difference between 720p and 1080p on a TV screen is "tell-able" depending how far back you are sat from the television.

Starting with the iPhone 4's camera, isn't this what it was good at? Unnatural overhyped colors?

http://www.intomobile.com/2010/10/05...re-comparison/

'What’s strange is that the iPhone 4 seemingly produced “warmer” and more “vibrant” images, whereas the higher-spec N8 produced images that a bit “flatter” but noticeably more crisp, detailed, and brighter'

I wouldn't call the Super AMOLED PLUS unnatural... whats wrong with having the higher contrast on a screen? I would call it more realistic...

I find it funny when people call a 'SCREEN' with a higher contrast ratio and almost-perfect viewing angles 'unnatural' just because it can't produce as much pixels per inch...

Like I stated, all personal preference...
And still this Super AMOLED PLUS is just gorgeous to look at...

We are talking about screens, not cameras.



I've stated why I call it unnatural, it's because of the overhyped colours, not it's pixel density. /twistingmywords.jpg


And btw the iPhone 4/S screen has some of the best viewing angles around

I've owned AMOLED screens since the Samsung moment and the colors aren't "overhyped". Whites are white blacks are completely black because they shut off pixels, the reds and greens are beautiful. You called the colors unnatural because you prefer clarity over Natural colors?

The iPhone 4s has nice viewing angles but the AMOLED screens are still better because I can place the phone face down and still see the screen but I need to take off the back and internals of the phone. But still when you take an iPhone 4s into the sun and tilt it side ways the sun still covers the screen.
