In AndroidZone’ve mentioned more than once that the 2013 will be the year of smartphones with large screens with full HD devices with panels of 5 inches or more, so the screen is one of the most important aspects in mobile Any.

    This is why we can pass the tests. The tests attempted to analyze various aspects like color reproduction, brightness, gamma, sharpness, viewing angles and the lot and determined that there is no clear winner but each device excels in different areas.

    The S4 Galaxy offers several display modes that affect color reproduction significantly. You can choose colors and flashing with Dynamic sharp or very natural colors with Movie mode. Below table shows the colors of Samsung’s flagship Movie mode, which shows that the green line is consistently perfect, while blue and red are very close too.

    Mode Adobe RGB pioneered Super AMOLED panel with 1080p and also offers very real colors but surprisingly not as accurate as the movie mode.

    In terms of brightness, the Galaxy S4 was below that iPhone 5 while One that HTC was close behind. As for the white balance, the S4 Galaxy Movie Mode and Adobe RGB is closer to the desired color temperature (6500K), while the iPhone 5 is about 7250K and 8000K One, both with color temperature colder.

    On the other hand, when analyzing the deep blacks and contrast, Super AMOLED screen maintained its advantage over IPS LCDs.
