According to display experts, the retina display on the Apple iPhone 5 beats the display on the Samsung Galaxy S3.
The tests were conducted by DisplayMate Technologies. The new iPhone was given an A in the tests, while the Galaxy S3 was given a respectable B+. Not enough, however, to beat the 4-inch retina display on Apple’s new kit.
DisplayMate says that the screen on the iPhone 5 “is a significant improvement over the display in the iPhone 4”. Compared to the previous iPhone, it offers significantly lower reflection, more image contrast, and enhanced readability in high lighting conditions.
DisplayMate adds that the new iPhone’s display is the best display on a smartphone the company has ever tested.
The Galaxy S3 did not do too well under bright sunlight, due to only half the brightness compared to the display on the new iPhone. One factor is the power restrictions required by OLED displays.
Despite losing to the iPhone 5, DisplayMate still gives the S3’s display a rating of “very good”. The only reason why the new iPhone’s retina display bested its OLED screen is because it is new tech that still needs to be perfected.
DisplayMate says that Samsung has “not bothered to calibrate the colour gamut on any of its OLED displays, so they are wildly inaccurate and produce inaccurate and over-saturated colors”. This means that Apple pays more attention to detail compared to the Korean tech giant.
The verdict: the Apple iPhone 5 is more ideal for viewing things on the display under direct sunlight. Just don’t run the Apple Maps app if you don’t want to ruin the experience.
Would you get your hands on an iPhone 5 because its more ideal for viewing stuff on its retina display under direct sunlight, or do you still think the bigger OLED on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is still better? Share your opinion through a comment on our Facebook page.
Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, is not at all thrilled with the outcome of the Apple vs. Samsung patent case. Instead of siding with the company that he founded with Steve Jobs, he sided with Samsung.
A US jury has found Samsung guilty of infringing Apple’s patents and has ordered it to pay the Cupertino firm over $1 billion in damages. Google was outraged by the US court’s decision. Samsung is currently fighting the ruling through an appeal. Although Wozniak is a huge part of the founding of Apple, he disagrees with the decision.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Steve said, “I hate it. I don’t think the decision of California will hold. And I don’t agree with it — very small things I don’t really call that innovative. I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use everybody’s technologies.”
Samsung has quickly snatched the title as the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. It has knocked Nokia off its perch, which the Finnish firm has held for fourteen years. With Samsung’s sudden rise to fame, many believe that Apple is threatened by the Korean firm’s success.
Apple has recently unveiled the hotly-anticipated iPhone 5. When asked about the new iPhone, Wozniak said, “I am always excited about every iPhone product because there are always good advances. A better quality on the pictures will mean a lot, because when I show people pictures on my iPhone 4 and my Galaxy S III, they always say the Galaxy S III, or even the Motorola Razr, pictures look better.”
According to reports, Wozniak’s current handset is the Galaxy S3. However, the Apple co-founder is considering getting his hands on the iPhone 5, due to its camera technology.

Samsung is giving three premium games for free, as part of their “thank you for buying the Samsung Galaxy S III” package. These games are Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, Shadowgun: The Leftover, and Asphalt 7: Heat.
Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, Shadowgun: The Leftover, and Asphalt 7: Heat free for the S2’s successor are available at the Samsung Apps store. Sadly, we’re not sure which S3 owner can download the games. It seems the gift is for specific regions.
