There is one organization that is more focused than any other on displays—the Society for Information Displays, now celebrating its 50 year anniversary. Display Week is held each year as a gathering of the world’s display experts. After evaluating every new display component that has been introduced into products this past year SID selected the display in the Samsung Galaxy Note for the gold award winner. You might recall that the display in the Samsung Galaxy S won this award last year. So, for two years in a row a PenTile OLED panel has been awarded this coveted honor.

So if the world’s experts in displays, who also generated he first comprehensive standard for display metrology published May 31, 2012 have judged this PenTile display as the best how can it be that so many bloggers persist in finding fault with PenTile displays? It is time to recognize the impact that PenTile has had on the display industry and the quality that it offers.

Amongst the roughly 30+ displays that were shown this about one half of these were PenTile displays, including the PenTile Super AMOLED displays used in the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Nexus, the Galaxy Prime, the Galaxy Nexus and the newly announced Galaxy SIII smartphones. Samsung also exhibited their line of mirrorless digital SLR cameras, each of which uses a 3-inch VGA PenTile OLED display.
