    The new Galaxy S III still has a Pentile screen, even though it is a 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display. What does that mean and does it matter? The screen still looks amazing!

    The screen looks amazing in doors but when i am out in the day i find it very hard to see the screen, in fact it is very difficult to make a call and nearly impossible to right a text on a sunny day.

    Agreed! Screen great indoors but basically useless outside in the sun?

    Coming from iPhone to the Samsung I'm must say I'm pretty impressed with the screen. True though it's not the best in the sun.
    I used to have a open mind but my brains kept falling out

    I've yet to use a smartphone screen that was in any way acceptable in direct sun. Outside, the screen seems no better or worse than my LCD screen on the DX.

    I won't do a good job explaining pentile but if you Google it you'll come across some closeup screen comparisons of pentile and nonpentile screens. Basically pen tile screens don't have a red, green, and blue sub pixel in each pixel. This is supposed to translate to lower battery consumption but I dont understand how.

    For sharpness, especially with black fonts on certain color backgrounds (e.g. green) pen tile screens look noticeably worse. In short a pen tile screen is inferior to a nonpentile in the broadest sense. For the s3 though, I think it looks fine

    The wife and I were just discussing this the other day. Both my Fascinate and her Charge did better in direct sunlight than the S3 does. Strange.

    I guess that's a tech Sammy needs to work on. I understand the concept of battery saving but when you have to pump the display up to 100% outdoors to see your screen, battery saving mesures go out the window.
