Samsung Galaxy S5 Display – 1080 x 1920 resolution and Super AMOLED Tech -??Named Best Performing Smartphone Screen; ?Trumps Batt Life of S4, Sony Xperia Z2 and HTC One (M8)


Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy S4.

Many people consider them not only ?older and younger? siblings, but as ?twins? because of their almost identical displays.

The Galaxy S4 has a screen with 441 ppi (pixels per inch) and a 5 inch display, while the Galaxy S5 has a 432 ppi and a 5.1 inch display.

Both the S4 and the S5 possess a display resolution of 1080 x 1920 and the Super AMOLED tech. This gives both devices excellent brightness and color.

It has been noted though, that the Samsung Galaxy S5 performs much better than the former model. To look closer into this claim, let us take a peek at a recent test conducted between the two devices.

DisplayMate, a device display expert, conducted tests, and released a comprehensive report on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5, as well as the Galaxy Note 3.

Before we go any further, let us introduce DisplayMate.

They describe themselves in their own website as ? DisplayMate produces a complete set of state-of-the-art proprietary test and calibration patterns together with expert information, advice and guidance to setup, calibrate, tweak, optimize, test, evaluate and improve the image and picture quality and color and gray scale accuracy of all Monitors, Projectors and HDTVs.
Over 200 computer and video publications in 70 countries use DisplayMate for testing and evaluating video hardware.?

Back to the report. In a nutshell, the DisplayMate report called the Samsung Galaxy S5 ?the best performing smartphone display that we have ever tested.?

This is great news for Samsung and their fans as many people who consider buying new devices are getting jaded over the fact that manufacturers are simply increasing resolutions and ppi densities without looking at other technology factors that may actually improve screen or display quality.

Samsung Galaxy S5, despite the similar specs with the S4, seems to have gone beyond the usual stuff and has developed the screen quality to impressive levels.

The report indicated that the S5 was 13% brighter than the Note 3 and an astonishing 22% brighter than the S4. DisplayMate also mentioned that the S5’s super dimmer mode performed impressively by maintaining a high display quality despite low brightness.

And there is more.

The Galaxy S5 also performed better in the battery category, according to the report, delivering better efficiency in power (27% more) over the S4, despite the larger screen.

Compared versus the Sony Xperia Z2 and HTC One [M8] (both uses LCD screen technology), the Galaxy S5 (using an OLED display) also trumped them by being 27% more efficient in battery life.
