Galaxy S5 display compared to LG G Pro 2, new HTC One and Sony Xperia Z2

Next month, the Galaxy S5 will be launched in more than 150 countries as Samsung’s latest flagship, and as usual, it will be facing competition from flagship smartphones from other manufacturers. The display quality on these flagships will, as always, be one of the deciding factors for many consumers when it comes to purchase, so to lend a helping hand, the folks over at ePrice have done a pretty extensive shootout comparing the Super AMOLED display on the Galaxy S5 to the LCD displays on the LG G Pro 2, new HTC One (M8), and the Sony Xperia Z2.

As expected, the Galaxy S5 manages to offer higher contrast than the displays on other devices. However, while previous Samsung devices often fell behind when it came to how realistically it portrayed an image, the Galaxy S5’s display seems to do an excellent job, with only a hint of over-contrast on most images. Viewing angles, always the strong suit for Samsung’s AMOLED displays, are as impressive as ever, and the whites also seem whiter than what we’ve seen on existing Samsung devices.

In the end, flagship phones are now at a stage where you can’t really go wrong with the displays on any of them, but the comparison is a good look at where the Galaxy S5 stands. Check out the full resolution images at the source link, and do let us know which of the four phones’ display you prefer.

Get a phone because its great not because it sells a lot. I’d take the HTC one (M8)over Samsung galaxy S5 every time.

As a SAMSUNG fanboy, i can say that Sony Xperia Z2 has the best screen here. Colours seem more accurate on Z2 than the 3 others.

HTC and Sony’s are not very accurate. LG looks a little better. Samsung is overall the best.

Take a closer look at the girl’s picture.
Sony: pinkish background
HTC: pinkish background and yellowish facial skin
LG: the facial skin looks too red.
Samsung: natural light.

I agree on that. Samsung all way but I wish the SGS5 could have a body of HTC M8 that I craved from Samsung for a long time.

When this gonna happen?

I don’t think the justification for a metallic body should be ‘so that it looks like the M8’; paraphrase.

I think a Samsung phone with would be cool but there are things to consider like;
– signal strength of the antennas (both WIFI and cellular)
– Dents
– given that it’s Samsung, price.

For screen testing, I think you should use same pictures on different devices rather than different pictures on different devices. Some devices may show some colors beautifully than on other device

Super AMOLED display on the Galaxy S5 looks superior than it’s competitors. Screen is even brighter this time, could be on-par with HTC ONE’s screen brightness (I’d say that it’s much better than the HTC ONE). 🙂

I disagree. The girl’s skin looks much better and natural on Samsung’s.

White background seems blue on LG’s, Samsung’s display show us real white.
