The efforts of Samsung for staying at the top technical level do not fall on deaf ears. As it usually does DisplayMate, we already you have the analysis of the new screens of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in depth, and does not bring anything but good news for Koreans.
The first detail that surprises is that Samsung has managed, in the third generation of curved screens on technology Amoled, yield the same results as its homologous flat. And the rest of data are not worse.
What we are is, going to the point, a screen that returns to consume less. Gone are the years where Amoled was synonymous with large consumption in white.

|Maximum brightness in completely white screen||1.50 Watts287 nits||1.50 Watts351 nits||1.20 Watts348 nits|
As we can see consumption has improved markedly in the last two generations, and not only reducing energy expenditure, but keeping the maximum brightness and increasing the peak in auto mode:

|Maximum brightness with average image||251 nits||386 nits||371 nits|
|Maximum brightness in completely white screen||287 nits||351 nits||348 nits|
We see that the Galaxy S6, in two versions, comes with a few peaks of brightness significantly higher versions past. Must be taken into account, that Yes, these peaks are reached only when the conditions require it (the phone will know it by the light sensor) and when the illuminated portion of the screen is relatively small.
Moreover, the screens in Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge return to be extremely accurate in terms of color, angles of vision and even minimum brightness. Again with the usual modes of Samsung, according to let you tailor the content or prefer your photo mode.
It is a figures that are already approaching the LCD in terms of consumption, Although its weak point is still to illuminate large areas of the screen. In fact if we compare figures of the own matte Display, we can see that this screen already spends less than the iPhone 6, if we take into account your greater area. That Yes, this throws us a uniform glow of 558 nits (as opposed to the 348 of the S6) for the given consumption.
