Photos viewed on each screen bore out the test results. Colors from skin tones to tree leaves to flowers to neon signs looked punchier and more saturated on the Samsung's screen than on the iPhone's, where shot after shot looked more natural. Subjectively, some people might find the Galaxy S3's improper gamut preferable to the iPhone's proper one. Put another way, if you prefer oversaturated colors (think Dynamic or Vivid mode on a TV) you'll like the Galaxy S3 better, and if you want colors that more accurately portray the source, the iPhone 5 is the clear choice.

Into the weeds: MethodologyI tested three different samples of both phones, I measured each phone once at 50 percent brightness and once at 100 percent brightness, keeping the ambient light sensor turned off, Update 10/16/2012: To match the experience of a typical user as closely as possible, I did not change any of the other display-affecting settings from lovecases marble iphone 6s / 6 case - opal gem yellow their defaults, Some of these, such as disabling "Auto adjust screen tone" on the Galaxy S3, may improve test results, and I may cover them in a future update, but they're largely beyond the scope of this test..

The phone screens were measured by a state-of-the-art spectroradiometer, the Konica Minolta CS-2000, in a completely dark room. The phones were held using a small tripod at a uniform distance (16 inches) perpendicular to the lens, and I focused as close as possible to the exact center of the screen. I measured full-screen 1,280x720-pixel JPEG test patterns within the default photo viewing app (Photos on the iPhone and Gallery on the Galaxy S3). The patterns originated from SpectraCal, manufacturers of the CalMan 4 software I used to power this evaluation. Black, gray, and white luminance was measured from 0 percent black to 100 percent white in 11 increments of 10 percent each, while color gamut was measured at 75 percent luminance.

In the interests of keeping these tests as objective as possible, I measured only black, gray, and white levels and color, I didn't address resolution mainly because I don't consider it a major differentiating factor -- the iPhone's screen can get sharper, but the Samsung's is plenty sharp for most people, I also ignored viewing angle since it's less relevant to phones; a phone is usually held in your hand, so you can freely move it to the ideal perpendicular viewing angle, I didn't test reflectance, which is the measure of how exactly the screen handles reflections and ambient light, It's an important factor, but I currently lack the expertise and facilities to evaluate it properly, If you're curious, Raymond Soneira at DisplayMate tests reflectance, among many other points of interest, in his excellent "Flagship smartphone display technology shoot-out."I also didn't go into the same depth of color testing as another evaluator whose work I greatly respect, Chris Heinonen, His article lovecases marble iphone 6s / 6 case - opal gem yellow at AnandTech, "The iPhone 5 display: Thoroughly analyzed," came to similar conclusions about the iPhone 5's color accuracy and contrast, Heinonen's and Soneira's work was helpful in developing my test, as was that of Geoff Morrison..

Update 10/17/2012: Better late than never, here's the raw data used for the chart above, in the form of charts and a Google spreadsheet averaging the measurements I took from three samples of each phone. How much does image quality matter on a phone?I typically review TVs, a product for which the image quality produced by the screen at a given size and price is (or should be, IMHO) the most important factor. Cell phones are a whole 'nuther ball of wax. In my personal opinion, the quality of the images produced by the screens of today's phones is much less important than handset design, brand, carrier, software, and ecosystem. I actually plan to buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 myself, mainly because I like its size and capabilities, and I'm a longtime Android user who loves the low rates of T-Mobile. I expect its screen to perform similarly to a Galaxy S3's, and worse than that of the iPhone 5 for example, but that's not an important-enough factor to prevent me from buying one.
