    Galaxy S5 LTE-A Display shows improved color accuracy

    A few weeks after its limited, South Korean release, the display of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A has finally received its first analysis – courtesy of AnandTech. When DisplayMate hailed the Galaxy S5 as having the “best performing smartphone display”, it was hard to imagine what even Samsung could do to build upon this. As it turns out, the 5.1 inch, WQHD Super AMOLED display does indeed improve the clarity – upping the pixel density to a whopping 577 ppi – but offers a more marked difference in color saturation.

    Due to the construction of Samsung's AMOLED displays and its use of the diamond pixel matrix, green subpixels outnumber blue and red subpixels in a 2:1:1 ratio. This has led to users noticing a green-ish tint to the screen and skews the color accuracy on the GS5. Now even though the Galaxy S5 LTE-A features the same kind of AMOLED display, the bump to the 2560×1440 resolution helps in addressing the green-ish tint. Notice below that there is a very real difference in color accuracy between the two handsets.

    Aside from this, the increased power consumption of the screen appears to be marginal and with that makes a strong case for Samsung being the premiere display manufacturer. One gripe may be that the global Samsung market is on pins and needles awaiting the point when such a dazzling display will be available to all; here's hoping that there's not much more waiting.
