A display comparison between the Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S 4, Samsung Galaxy S III, Sony Xperia Z, HTC One, and Nokia Lumia 920 has been posted by PhoneArena.

Brightness and Visibility (Winner: iPhone 5)
"Despite the improvements that Samsung continues to do to its so-called Super AMOLED screen technology, it's still lagging behind the quality LCD screens in the brightness department. We find the LCD displays of the iPhone 5, One, Xperia Z and Lumia 920 to be a bit brighter than the one of the GS4, and even more compared to the GS3, which is dimmer than its successor."

Viewing Angles (Winner: iPhone 5, One)
Xperia Z had the worst viewing angles of all six devices followed by the Galaxy S 4 and S III. Leading the pack was the iPhone 5 and HTC One who "even manage to retain a more natural color balance."

Resolution (Winner: One)
"The HTC One leads the pack in that respect as it couples the 1080p resolution with a 4.7” screen, which makes for the incredible 468 ppi. The second places is shared by the Xperia Z and Galaxy S4, the 5” displays of which have a pixel density of 441 ppi. Third is the Lumia 920 with 332 ppi, and immediately after it comes the iPhone 5 with 326 ppi. Finally, we have the Galaxy S III with 306 ppi."

Color reproduction (Winner: iPhone 5)
The iPhone 5 and HTC One were selected as favorites. "Their advanced LCD displays output super-realistic, yet vibrant and lively colors that manage to please both the purist users and those who just want a breath-taking image. The Nokia Lumia 920 is also quite good, though it's a bit less vibrant."

Well it seems that the 1080p display on the HTC One is worth talking about. I’m definitely looking forward to trying out the One as soon as it comes to the US. Since it takes a while to get there, I like to kill time while I’m on my way to work at DISH by watching my live and recorded shows on my phone. I can stream from my DVR wherever I am going with the DISH Anywhere app and I think it will work wonderfully on a higher resolution display.

I looked at both the experia z and the htc one, i choose the htc one in the end because in my opinion the display colours seemed more natural, the z looked muted slightly. Also the htc one feels amazing in the hand. Its build quality is up there with the iphone 5. Its superb. Glad i bought it.
