October 2, 2012, 4:30 P.M. New York local time — Apple and Samsung’s flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5, are in the battleground again, and this time, it is about the screen technology.
Samsung and Apple are in the battlefield again, and this time, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5′s display technologies are the topic of the clash. As reported by numerous tech sites today, IHS iSuppli has compared the 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display of the Samsung Galaxy S3 vs the Apple iPhone 5′s Retina display measured 4-inch diagonally. According to iSuppli, the Samsung Galaxy S3′s display is “technically” more superior than Apple’s.
Let’s look at the numbers, the study claims that Apple’s iPhone 5 features a 4-inch Retina display measured 1.5mm thickness, it is thinner than the iPhone 4S’s display with 2.1mm. Surprisingly, at least for Apple fans, the Samsung Galaxy S3 features a thinner display of just 1.1mm. Here’s the next set of numbers, the supply-centric website said that the 1.5mm display of the iPhone 5 features 72 percent color gamut only while the Samsung Galaxy s3′s 1.5mm touchscreen display sports an impressive 100 percent color gamut. For starters, the color gamut is the range of colors that a display can make.
The numbers do not suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S3′s 4.8-inch display is producing BETTER display quality because it still depends on personal preference. Vinita Jakhanwal explains that while the Samsung Galaxy S3′s AMOLED display is better than Apples Retina display when it comes to color gamut, some reviews have suggested that “colors presented on the Galaxy S III actually can look oversaturated and unrealistic.”
Here’s another twist, according to early reviews and Samsung Mobile’s press release, the new Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, features an improved touchscreen AMOLED display. In short, it is better than the Samsung Galaxy S3, and well, it is more superior than the iPhone 5′s retina-branded screen.
Speaking of reviews, tech sites like The Verge and Engadget say that the iPhone 5 features a “better” display than other devices out there (specially mentioned, HTC One X). So apparently, Jakhanwal’s explanation accurate, Apple’s in-cell touch-equipped iPhone 5 “is more than sufficient for most users.
