Re: Something about S6
In response to my post I would like to ask you why you don't prefer a cheaper model ?

hmm other choice ?
Although your post is very informative and now I have a clear picture on those two models from the other hand if I had to choose I prefer a cheaper noname model base on Android. (Almost a monthly salary is too much for a phone).

Re: Something about S6
Go to DisplayMate and find the article "Galaxy Note OLED Display Technology Shoot-Out"

Read through "Multiple Screen Modes and Color Management" and "Adaptive Display Mode with a Wide Color Gamut"

DisplayMate concludes "the Absolute Color Accuracy for the Basic screen mode is an impressive 1.6 JNCD, tied with the Galaxy Note 4 for the most color accurate display that we have ever measured for a Smartphone or Tablet. It is visually indistinguishable from perfect, and very likely considerably better than your living room TV or any display that you own."

You seem to know one thing about AMOLED but none of the other 99 things.

 

tl;dr

Saturated? Yes

Can Be Controlled? Yes

Best color accuracy? Still Yes

Re: Something about S6
Samsung uses AMOLED which has very saturated colors. They look great, but they are not "accurate" the LCD on the M9 is not as saturated and its closer to sRGB gamut. Its more accurate.

Dont take it as the AMOLED being worse... most people like the punch of the AMOLEDs.

Something about S6
I'm planning to buy an S6 edge so I did my research.

"HTC's screen delivers more accurate color"

Galaxy Note 4 is known to have the best quality & highest accuracy in mobile screen.

S6 touts to have better display than GN4. I don't know if HTC's screen can possibly deliver more accurate color.

 

"HTC's Sense is somewhat more customizable thanks to a variety of themes and accent colors."

S6 has its own theme engine as well.

poor review
So you essentially ignore the actual features of the phones and pick the S6 over the M9 because it has a finger print reader that offers about as much security as a pinky promise?

 

...right then. Note to self: ignore InformationWeek reviews.
