Note 3's Screen

This must be a pretty terrible display if it's worse than the Note 3's, which is an extremely disappointing display with its Pentile arrangement.

ROFL. No one expected anything less from you.

From 2 people I know that have bought it, have said it looks good and that they only ever set it to half brightness. When I saw it you can't tell that its a pentile display (like you could on the S2, you really cant tell in the S3 or S4 that they are either)

I just find it funny that Samsung is making the best screens in just about every market, not just phones. But bluecoyote wants to get on here and dog them when they're far far far superior to what is offered on his precious iPhone. It's even more funny because the original retina display launched on the iPhone 4 a little after the launch of the original Galaxy phone. At the time reviews were mixed as to which device had the best screen, even though the retina display had better pixel density. Here we are 4 generations of screen later (for Samsung) and Apple is still using the same tired technology that was barely competitive with the original Galaxy. There are those who define the term "fanboy", and then there are those that remind us why it...

Blue may be a troll but I actually agree with him.Pentile is the worst which is why I stay away from Samsung not to mention their use of plastic and TouchWiz. It's 2013, no one should be using pentile. Unacceptable. I hate SuperAMOLED too. Oversaturated colors and makes everything look like cartoons.

I expected better from HTC being that the screen on the One is probably the best screen I ever seen on a smartphone. Just stunning.

Most professional reviews on the Note 3 say the screen is stunning. You may hate their choice of technology, but its certainly working.

That would be YOUR opinion. I personally find the resolution on the Note 3 far better than the res on any given iPhone or HTC, but that's MY opinion. I don't care if it's called AMOLED Retina Display or whatever, if it looks good it's good. Going out and saying something is bad for everyone just because it didn't met your expectations is just wrong.

Also, you mentioned you stay away from a device for the manufacturer "use of plastic"?? Polycarbonate is a fine material for phones. There was a time where all products, not just phones, where made of it, and for a reason! Aluminum, being a metal, is a great heat conductor (heat is bad for your phone's battery, specially if its sealed-in!). Not to mention that metal weakens, if not blocks sign...

Well said. I was about to address almost all of that.

Yes, it's 2013 and Apple shouldn't be using their ages-old Retina Display either. Time to move forward, Apple!
