Samsung hypes up its smartphone displays at the Pixel 2 XL’s expense

If you follow tech news, you might have heard about the Pixel 2 XL’s display problems. Customers have reported issues with viewing angles and display burn-in. That’s hardly the experience you want from a flagship smartphone that costs a pretty penny. Even Google has acknowledged that there are issues and that it’s looking into them.

Samsung has felt that this is an opportune moment to hype up its smartphone displays. The company is a market leader in OLED display production and its panels are in a class of their own. It has posted a new video online which is basically a compilation of top smartphone reviewers singing praises of its display technology.

Samsung’s Smartphone Displays

Some of the top tech reviewers that you find on YouTube are featured in this short 30-second advertisement. The excerpts have been taken from their reviews of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8.

Both flagship smartphones tout the latest in Samsung display technology. The Infinity Display itself is miles ahead of the competition design-wise. It’s on a different level entirely as far as the actual display tech is concerned. The tech reviewers are all in agreement.

This is a subtle jab that Samsung has taken at Google. It goes to show that the company is taking Google’s newfound love for hardware very seriously.

The Pixel 2 XL screen is terrible. No doubt about it. Please note that there are no complaints about burn in on the Samsung display on the smaller Pixel 2. It is an older generation Samsung Amoled but it’s still better. People talk about Samsung screens being bad, but nobody is complaining about them. In fact it’s the opposite, always praise and an admission from just about everybody in the business that nobody makes a better display than Samsung. There is no point in complaining about Samsung screens when it’s the pOLED from LG that has the quality problems.

McDonalds makes nutritious, healthy meals. People love them after all, right?

Logic not found.

You’re relating quality hardware design with proof in numbers to fast food that’s engineered for convenience, never once looks like the advertising photos, and frequently appears on dollar menus? And that’s logical??? o_0 I might have given you a little credit had you argued something more along the same level like 3D movies.

I guess The point is that sales don’t prove anything and it’s a silly argument to make. Otherwise why buy anything but an iPhone?

And Samsung IS distorting their displays and that’s an undisputable fact, whether you like it or not

I think you need to read up on the definition of Image distortion because you are very wrong, again. Sales figures do not matter?! what planet are you living on which they don’t prove anything!? the difference between the S7s and S6s was the curve display. and people preferred the curve display! the internals, the camera, the performance was all identical (except the S7 battery and smaller screen), but still people are buying the S7 edge over the S7. I have an S6 edge+ and now an S8+ and never once been annoyed at my screen “distorting” the image of… Read more »

You’re in denial my friend. Samsung’s curved displays are distorted and there’s not denying that. Unless you feel like arguing the laws of physics just for the fun of it.

You may be OK with the glare and the colour shift at the edges of the screen but that doesn’t mean we all have to be.

not my fault you have terrible eye sight because I see no image distortion. you must be one of those people who argue there is no difference between a HD and 4K screen on a phone because the human eye cannot distinguish more than 330ppi (or whatever the ‘fact’ is). and again, you get glare on all phone screens but does it affect how I use the phone? no. it doesn’t. keeping living in the past if you want to but that won’t stop the future.

Except you’re the one who can’t see so your argument is backwards. You’re arguing against physics. You bend a display, the picture gets distorted. That’s a fact, even if you refuse to acknowledge.

MKBHD! defo one of the best out there

Best what? All he does is state the obvious via the best cameras out there. He’s a breathing, living commercial, who’s made a living off of saying nothing of any substance.

Marques: “Man, that water was so wet.”

Millions of people: “Damn, he right, that water WAS so wet!”

Same applies to 99% of reviewers out there. They’re the reason why phones are overpriced, fragile, slippery, obsolescence-built fashion items these days instead of technological tools.

That is very, very true as well. I am kind of glad SamMobile doesn’t push reviews so heavily. It’s one of its many upsides, aside from that APK gallery. That APK gallery has saved me many times over. But really, it’s about providing a service. I guess I’m more interested in a service that provides in-depth looks at products and services, instead of some guy who happens to spend all of his money refining the art of the empty review. Now, Erica Griffin … SHE knows how to do a review. Lisa Gade too. But Marques … he’s perfected the… Read more »

He is one of the best reviewers because he reviews a product well and is not wedge in the butt of any one manufacturer – except maybe Tesla. his blind camera review was the best phone camera reviews and every techy should watch it. And by stating the obvious – what else do you expect in a review, how else are you supposed to know how a phone works and what works well or not?! I assume also, then that you got a better review channel? if not, then go hate elsewhere. I am sure the other trolls will welcome… Read more »

Uh … I can think of tens of channels that care more about tech and review more devices out there for the joy of doing reviews … ARS Technica and Erica Griffin? Even The Verge does a more substantive review, and of more devices. Or, I’ll come here to see what the people who know about Samsung have to say about Samsung devices. Or Reddit. But absolutely, and definitely not Marques. He’s done extremely well for himself and is a very talented cinematographer. But as far as any in-depth opinion, I’m better off asking a fly on the wall what… Read more »
