The Samsung Galaxy smartphone series has presumably gotten better over the years, right? Well as far as processing speed, memory and improved UIs are concerned, then absolutely. But what about the AMOLED displays—- has it gotten better over the years? Well, yes and no. As seen in a Galaxy shootout thanks to some curious individuals at DisplayMate, there are some interesting findings about the displays seen over the years. For example, the color gamut across all devices fell between 136 – 139 percent. Typically a color gamut too large is visually worse than a small color gamut and results in what’s considered to be an ‘irregular display’ where the Green is more saturated compared to Red or Blue, as seen in the Galaxy S line of smartphones. In addition, there were additional findings such as each device having an unusual color shift when the displays on each device at an extreme viewing angle. Specifically– DisplayMate highlights the displays of the Galaxy I, II and III “take on a distinctly strong blue color shift and cast” when being viewed at an angle of greater than 45 degrees.
On the flipside— it’s not all negative findings. The running time of the displays on the devices has improved which each passing generation. When running at maximum power in Airplane mode, the Galaxy S I sees a run time of 3.2 hours, the Galaxy S II sees 4.4 hours and the Galaxy S III sees an astounding 5.6 hours.
The study and conclusions are certainly a bit on the technical side, but they’re both nonetheless interesting as heck. If you’re interested in checking out additional or more specific details, make sure to hit the source link which you can find below.
