Samsung Galaxy S vs iPhone 4: Display Screens

I got my hands today on the Samsung Galaxy S (review) and the iPhone 4, and honestly, when comparing the display screens of both these phones, I was really confused on which to conclude with is the best!


(Click the image to enlarge)

iPhone 4 features one of the most advanced display screens with the Retina Display technology (SLCD), while on the other hand Samsung Galaxy S features a Super AMOLED display screen. But when holding both of them, you hardly make out which one should be crowned as the best among these two because both of them have the best, vibrant touchscreen I have ever seen!

Have you tried both of these devices together? Which one do you think has a better display? Samsung Galaxy S (review) or iPhone 4?

    Galaxy S gets my vote. Galaxy S screen is much brighter and bigger compared iPhone 4.

  • nabblogger

    Samsung.

  • sai teja

    bull shit they edited and blurred the iphone observe carefully.
    iphone is always the best

  • Blurred? That photo was ditectly taken from the camera and was uploaded
    after watermarking!

  • Justinishulk

    i like both but iPhone is the best

  • Abhin

    Samsung.. personal exp. android rules!

  • handsomedevil

    the iphone 4 does nt need any comparison..other models juj come and go as wannabe iphone killers

  • hamidilyas

    Haris….I say I have to agree with you here. I have seen and used both devices and I can easily say both screens are comparable. Although two different technologies the end result for the naked eye is same. However the bigger screen size of galaxy make it stand out a little bit.

  • Micheal

    No offense but the photo is useless, as it has been saved in a lossy format. You can see the jpeg compression clearly.

    Personally I have seen both first hand and even though the galaxy has more screen real estate, the iphone looks crisper.

  • podjetniki

    Nice, here I can compare the screen sizes.

    But for display quality I think you should put on both the same photo to make a proper comparition.

    If you can please try to make another photo, watermark it and set jpg at 95% when saving.

    For best results put an awesome very detailed hdr photo on both phones so that way we can see better which phone has the best display.

    If you still have both phones of course ;)

    is samsung made of titanium like iphone 4 ?
    does samsung have facetime ?
    does samsung have a powerful processing like iphone4 ?
    look at the other features guys, if u r comparing the touch screen only then it's fine. samsung may be good but can't be better.

    eat your iphone and shut the hell up, mac dork

    Samsung has video feature, which allows to have video conferencing with any phone which can do video calling. Plus does it through Wi-fi or data. Iphone is restricted to wifi and only between iphones.

    The processing is better than the iphone. Iphone is running at 800 Mhz while Samsung is running at 1GHz

    Can your iphone connect through DLNA? Belonging to the useless world of Apple, the term might be strange as Adobe Flash is ;)

    On Samsung you can transfer files using bluetooth. Can you do that without jailbreaking and buying softwares.

    The worst part about Iphone for me is that you connect it to some other computer and you want to upload pictures, music etc, all your other previous contents get wiped off as it syncs to the new PC, while with Samsung, do it as you like.

  • Bangboy85

    i will choose the samsung rather than the Iphone 4.i prefer picture screen quality that very pure and technology up to date. SLCD just as same as LCD is very way back. LED is what now is been talking.

  • Bheibyice

    well i bought my samsung galaxy S. and i also have the iphone 4. i think when it comes to applications, iphone4 has a lot to offer than with the samsung. but then the speed of the wifi internet into the samsung is way better than the iphone4 which made it better in viewing livestreamings. it seems like there is still uniqueness with the 2 handphones.

  • bharadwaj

    i like iPhone is the best

  • awesome….

  • Sky

    Galaxy is the best.

    i totally agree to abv statment

  • Yacinedelucia

    i bet 200 dollars you have an iphone 4!

  • Yacinedelucia

    you can also go to the closest phone shop and see booth, live by
    your own eyes .

  • Tantrikninja

    Dude – take it easy. . . useless world of Apple? Right – like you have achieved so much on your PC.

    Ctrl-Alt-Delet aside – Samsung Galxy or whatever – on board memory ? Non existent. Would you mind buying me a new memory card. Oh yeah and I hope it's not full of viruses?

    Hey – I know what – go buy yourself a T-series memory card full of retarded T-series crap and stick it in your samsung galyxy phone (or whatever it is) and dont bother us with your ignorance. thanks.

  • Lol

    “Would you mind buying me a new memory card. Oh yeah and I hope it's not full of viruses? ”

    it looks so similar to apple 90's anti windows popaganda that it made me smile, thanks for that

    (and please don't talk about ignorance, all the above statements about iphone and galaxy are true, while you seem to be ignorant about the fact that the galaxy have a 8 gb onboard memory).

  • Sufwanusmani

    samsung galaxy is the best :P

  • Amanjaiswal999

    it's galaxy best budy iphone is u under stand na

  • ZebisNZ

    After using the Galaxy for a few weeks its hard using an iPhone. You get used to the much larger screen size. I liken it to using a netbook then going back to a 13-15″ laptop. The galaxy just seems to have a more functional screen size for its purpose. LED is the way forward, bring on dual-core Android!

  • Wanabe

    whtever u guys r taking about is rubbish about iphone
    the phone has got a great UI which outstands galaxy, iphone always had the best in it and has it, it has a a4 processor running at 1GHZ and also has got a great video recording feature at 720p, the great applications available in app store are obviously largest in world…… the hardware is used easily in all the applicatins which make it the best phone…

  • SAMSUNG GALAXY S would be given more than 1,000,000 thumbs of like in facebook !! :D It's the best for now on, until Windows 7 Phone have the guts to show off his horns :D

  • Galaxy S Galaxy S I LOVE YOU so MUCH !!

  • UnknownAPPLElover

    IPHONE 4 PWNED ALL THE SMARTPHONES!!!
    YOUR JUST POOR FOR IPHONE 4
    IPHONES ROCKKKSKSS!!!

  • Rabih

    Whoa, wait. Are you guys serious? Galaxy S owns iPhone 4? Mehhhhh.
    Which phone is more stylish?
    Which phone is more customizable?
    Which phone has better hardware?
    Which phone has better OS?
    Available applications have nothing to do with which phone is better, but even iPhone 4 owns that.
    You talk about disabled features such as Bluetooth transfer and/or pc sync, but dude these features were DELIBERATELY been turned off. It's not like if Apple cannot code bluetooth transfer – but the fact that Apple has self respect and dont want to encourage people on music piracy.
    Ethics, or lack of in Google's case….
    Meh

  • Damianeyes

    For me samsung is the best.. apple also good.. but u cant transfer file through blue tooth with others… i donno is there any other way or not.. but whats the use of reputation on the brand name if u cant transfer file in a emergency. in apple advantage is there r cool softwares n games n looks nice.. but for me galaxy s is the best.. and apple 4 and galaxy s comparable but i phone 4 costly. :-( buying a laptop is better than the i phone 4.. lol. samsung understand well. sorry for my English.

  • Djzmaj

    Are you guys blind?? Look at the size of pixel on iPhone's display and on Samsung's display and easily you can conclude that iPhone has much better display… Cheers ;)
    Btw. Note for Samsung-ers :) Apple guys are working hard to make BEST product for so many years, not to copy BEST product in a best possible way :)

  • QWERTY

    iPhone 4.
    Apple had been working to create the
    BEST. The others are imitating the best in
    ways that they can think off. If you're talking
    about the screen, Samsung gets my vote.
    If you're talking about overall, the iPhone gets my vote.

    'nuff said.
