    Personally, I can't tell a difference, but my eyes are old :p
    Much less understand all the vocabulary describing it :D

    One or the other doesn't really matter I guess, I'm perfectly happy with the screen on my almost four year old S3. Unless I'm holding up a newer model with my phone in a live, side-by-side comparison, my old eye balls can't determine any difference anyway.

    Amoled can use less power, especially with dark Themed apps. Amoled is susceptible to permanent burnin of images that are always present (like on screen nav button area, status bar area)...although it rarely becomes noticeable for most people.
