Why do photos look better on my S4 vs. the iPhone 6+

    A good friend purchased the 6+ a week ago. I have a Galaxy S4. I sent him some pictures from when I was living in Hawaii (edited, saturated, really nice-looking pics), and we compared them side by side. The richness of the colors in my S4 blew away the iPhone 6+. Even he was surprised that his iPhone didn't compare to my S4.

    Is it the AMOLED display? I think the phones both have the same pixels per inch and resolution. Those pics truly looked much, much more vibrant on my phone than his new fancy iDevice. Lol I'll keep this thing for another year or two probably. It was crazy

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Actually the pixel densities differ (with different subpixel structures it's not so easy to sum it up in a single number though), but both are high enough that this isn't important. So the difference is almost certainly the AMOLED display. Although it can be adjusted(*), the default settings produce an exaggerated vibrancy and saturation. Many people prefer this, and it sounds like you and your friend are amongst them. :)

    (*) though not enough for my personal tastes
