Samsung Galaxy S5 earns the “best performing smartphone display” title

Samsung Galaxy S5

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.

Will this report affect your opinion of the Galaxy S5 on the whole? Let us know in the comments section below.

    While this is definitely an improvement, I still cannot it as reason enough to buy or upgrade my S4.
    There’s really nothing great in S5 if we take into consideration the already terrific design and features of S3 and S4.
    The S5 is just an upgrade that comes with a hefty price tag.

    I’ve checked this phone in a store and I think it feels great. I totally agree with this article that the display is much improved compared to the S3.

    I’d stick with my S4 for now. Yes I admit there are incremental improvements on the S5 but I don’t think they’re worth that much.
    Perhaps Samsung simply fails to create a desire in me for this one.haha
