Dr. Raymond M. Soneira of DisplayMate who is renowned for his expertise in analyzing displays down to every detail, has claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S5 has the “best performing smartphone display” he has ever tested. According to his report, Samsung has done a great job by focusing more on viewing angles and other areas of the display rather than merely increasing pixel count.
So even though the display resolution remains unchanged from the predecessor, it’s quite clear that Samsung has put in a lot of effort to improve other areas which require attention. This is where AMOLED displays really shine in comparison to standard LCDs and it is evident from Soneira’s report. It comes as no surprise really given Samsung’s long standing experience with AMOLED displays which has only gotten better with each passing year.
