DisplayMate has posted an analysis of the displays on the Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S 4, and Samsung Galaxy S III.

Samsung's new Galaxy S 4 display is a major improvement over the Galaxy S III featuring full HD 1920x1080 resolution and 441 Pixels Per Inch. It is also better calibrated, brighter, and bigger.

The iPhone 5 uses a 4.0 inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 1136x640 resulting in 326 ppi.

Dr. Raymond Soneira, President of DisplayMate Technologies, executed numerous tests to assess screen reflections, brightness and contrast, colors and intensities, viewing angles, display power consumption, and more.

Soneira concludes:

The Galaxy S4 continues the rapid and impressive improvement in OLED displays and technology. The first notable OLED Smartphone, the Google Nexus One, came in decidedly last place in our 2010 Smartphone Display Shoot-Out. In a span of just three years OLED display technology is now challenging the performance of the best LCDs. Each have their own particular strengths and weaknesses, but if you scan our color coordinated Comparison Table, both displays and technologies perform quite well and look quite good and comparable overall – we’ll see how they both evolve and improve in the next generation, which we consider next…

Android problem is that it has to many security leaks! To use this for business is to risk.

Both phones are nice. They have their strengths and their weaknesses. The winner is clearly the company that sells the MOST phones. Apple.

Al Campa is almost right. You can google it. Apple selling iphone 5 while samsung selling 100s of models shows apple can really sell. If they come out with iphone in 8 different sizes like samsung than God knows how many more phones they will sell. Currently Apple sold more iphone 5s than Samsung sold s3.

Despite all the progress that samsung is making, it still very wee in calibration according to iphone, and that is the most important issue in a touch screen device, so then, "Live iphone i am gonna stay apple oriented for ever and it really desrve"
