    Haha yeah Apple isn't one of the most "innovative" of companies, but it does pretty well in improving features that already exist.

    I honestly don't like AMOLED displays a whole lot, especially because of the screen "burn in" issue that people often talk about on the internet.

    But AMOLED displays really shine in battery life when it comes to using darker backgrounds.
    ... and obliterate the battery displaying whites. Lol.

    At the rate most webpages and emails are displayed as whites... I don't know if battery life can really be conserved using AMOLED displays lol

    I've seen that a lot too, but I've owned three smartphones with AMOLED displays, one which was used very extensively for over two years, and I have not experienced even the slightest bit of burn-in on any of them. I don't think it's quite fair to attribute that problem only to the fact that it's an AMOLED display. I suspect that the quality of the display and with what voltages the OEM drives them are the more important factors, but I agree it's their main problem. Compared to all the advantages however (thinner, perfect contrast, awesome for technology like glance), I find it a worthy trade-off, but to each their own. There's certainly nothing wrong with preferring LCD's either.

    This is interesting. I never saw burn in either, until a few days ago. I just bought a (very) used Verizon Galaxy Nexus on eBay. You can see a very noticeable burn in when the screen is white or light colored. It seems the the former owner(s) used the messaging app, since that's what the burn in image is as far as I can tell. The keyboard is easily distinguishable. However, this is the first time I've ever seen burn in on a smartphone that I recall.

    I'm not too sure on AMOLEDs draining battery on white backgrounds. But on Windows Phone(where you can adjust the theme) a black theme would really benefit anyone with a phone with an AMOLED display.

    I really like the benefits that come with owning an AMOLED display, such as Glance or Active Display but the screen burn in issue kind of terrifies me because I'm pretty sensitive to the slightest of issues that my phone has.

    But I've compared AMOLED and LCD screens side by side and asked other people, and most people prefer the more saturated colours of AMOLED.

    To each their own. :)

    Haha try not to worry about it.

    The real massive screen burn issues are on the AMOLED phones that are on display for people to use and are on 24/7.

    One of my friends had a Galaxy S3 for over two years now(he sold it recently) and he had minor screen burn in issues. But nothing too major.

    Talking on the topic of innovation, there we're a lot of rumours on Facebook going around that Nokia was working on a technology that made your phone automatically charge when you didn't use it.

    Now judging by the fact that not everything you read on Facebook is true, I would take this with a pinch of salt.

    But if Nokia was successful with that, it would have been really amazing. ๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜œ

    Lel no. That's why I doubted it in the first place.

    It was one of those pages that supposedly posted "facts".

    Just thought it would've been cool if it had become a reality.

    Lol, it would be cooler if it doesn't depend on a battery. Like a book.
