Is your Samsung using a recycled AMOLED screen?

Dirty games and internal politics are a part and parcel of any public organization. While these unethical practices may benefit the accused, it certainly has a lasting effect on the victim, be it a person or a company. Word on the street is that Samsung has been using recycled¬†AMOLED panels on its smartphones; being the popular manufacturer that it is, the story (or rumour?) has been spreading like wildfire. The rumour cites pictures and video from a Samsung assembly line, where the company is allegedly seen using ‘recycled’ AMOLED panels. AMOLED panels are a trademark of Samsung — the company ships a majority of its phones with displays that are built on the technology.

Samsung’s side of the story: The company claims¬†that recycled AMOLED panels are never used on new products; however, it does admit to offering customers the choice to opt for a refurbished AMOLED panel for paid warranty services, which means the customer pays a reduced price (as compared to when a new panel is used). In other words, Samsung dismissed the claims as futile.

It would explain the poor build quality of some of the Galaxy S4 phones. Chrome bits spontaneously falling of and not getting any warranty on that.

All these silly rumors are beginning to sound like someone (Apple, anyone?) is waging a smear campaign against Samsung. Shame on any website that even bothers to report such inane garbage. If there were any sign, or proof, that would be one thing.

The recycled AMOLED screens are probaby used in the Nexus 6, as they seem to be from the 7th generation and not from the 8th generation as used in the Note 4.
