Samsung Galaxy Note 4 wins at display color accuracy test

DisplayMate’s Color Accuracy Shoot-Out has a couple of premises – first, that users have been used to mediocre color accuracy since day one, and secondly, that manufacturers do not calibrate their devices for display color accuracy from the factory. This results in devices not being equal in terms of color accuracy. So DisplayMate is on a mission to pick out which devices has the best “Absolute Color Accuracy” – and it turns out the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the winner.

The YotaPhone 2 gives you two working touchscreens, front and back

If we had written this piece say in 2013, you could be forgiven for thinking that the makers of the YotaPhone had just complete lost all sanity. That is, of course, until the advent of Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge, which had manufacturers thinking out-of-the-box on what they can do with another touchscreen surface. Granted, what the YotaPhone has is completely unexpected and unorthodox – but you can’t say it isn’t worth a look in these modern times.

Do you feel like your smartphone doesn't have enough space on its screen, but you don't want to upgrade to a tablet or even a phablet?

Galaxy Note 4 OLED screen tested by DisplayMate

One of the most important parts of a smartphone of any size is the screen. If the images we see look bad because of a poorly performing screen, it doesn't matter as much how the rest of the smartphone performs.

Is sapphire glass all it’s cracked up to be?

With IFA 2014 set to start in a few days in Berlin, one of the buzzwords being bandied about is sapphire glass, particularly because it is rumored to be one of the features of the anticipated iPhone 6. Another OEM has beaten Apple to the punch as Kyocera recently announced the availability of its Brigadier with Sapphire Display through carrier Verizon. But as a supposedly scratch and drop resistant material, is sapphire glass all it’s, well, cracked up to be?

Sharp unveils “edge-to-edge display” of Aquos Crystal

When Sharp announced that their upcoming Aquos Crystal phone would have “edge-to-edge display”, people’s expectations of what it would look like were heightened. As they have now unveiled the actual phones, it would seem to have met those expectations, as the front panel of the smartphone has super-thin bezels, giving justice to the original description.

Curved OLEDs are nothing new for Samsung – they have a track record of this in smartphone devices and wearables.
