Samsung launched the LTE-A variant of the Galaxy S5 last month, and one of the biggest features of the device was touted to be its WQHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display. Today, Samsung has taken to its blog to detail what makes the WQHD display tick, and how it improves the viewing experience over what the standard Galaxy S5 offers. Samsung is offering the expected reasons for why WQHD is better than Full HD – it offers more detail in an image, and also improves readability, though higher detail will only be visible in images that sport a resolution higher than 1080p, which means you probably won’t see the difference in everyday usage.

Samsung is also touting softer and more natural colors, and our own comparison revealed that the Galaxy S5 LTE-A’s display produces whiter whites, though we’re not sure this is something the company couldn’t have achieved with a 1080p display as well. Furthermore, the increased resolution hasn’t resulted in the phone showing more content on-screen than the standard Galaxy S5, which is likely due to the small screen size and probably won’t be the case on the Galaxy Note 4’s 5.7-inch display.

Head over to the source link for all the details on Samsung’s WQHD Super AMOLED display.
