For those who own either of these phones shown above (Samsung Galaxy S4 or Apple iPhone 5) which one do you prefer? Which one is better? Mashable talks about the differences in the screens below:
The screen on the Galaxy S4 uses OLED technology instead of the more common LCD tech found on the iPhone 5 and most other phones. Samsung is the world’s leading supplier of OLED displays in phones, and it shows, Soneira says. Although OLEDs typically aren’t as bright as LCDs, the test found the GS4 to perform well in high ambient lighting, 25% brighter than the GSIII. It was about 15% less bright than the iPhone 5′s display, though.
Although the test found the iPhone 5 to be “significantly” brighter than the Galaxy S4, Samsung’s flagship has better screen uniformity, darker blacks and — notably — much better brightness off-angle. Viewed from the side, the iPhone 5′s brightness drops 60% at just a 30-degree angle whereas the GS4′s decreases just 22%.
