Well, duh.

It's a Super AMOLED screen, not a Super AMOLED+.

So, when the specs came out this week, anyone who was paying attention when the Galaxy S2 came out knows that the difference a + makes is Pentile versus 'proper'.

Re: Well, duh.

Well, since the "Super" is just marketing bollocks, why would anyone not assume the "+" was also marketing bollocks?

L.B

perhaps it just me...

...but all I see is a really crap camera being used, probably some phone with a lens about 2mm in diameter.

Zoom in on the actual edge of the phone (the plastic case) and you just get a blur!

Using that rubbish to try to state anything about the screen quality is just cobblers.

Just because your phone claims to be 5, 8 or even 10 megapixels does not mean the pictures are any better than a could be achieved with shoe box with a pin whole.

Missed the Gag?

Perhaps he missed it because it was not, errm, funny?

The funny quotient is certainly what I use to identify gags.
