I do believe that the camera has a linear chroma response in that much of a restrained area...

Its not just about linearity, but also accuracy, dynamic range, and how the colorspace is being computed. Linearity will just tell you if they're applying some range compression. It doesn't tell you how the colors actually look though.

Also you are viewing the test through your own computer monitor which is probably considerably more inaccurate than all the phones being compared
(unless you have some pro + $2000 monitor that has been probably calibrated).

Here's a test comparing different screens in ambient lighting. They found the best screen in bright ambient lighting is the Lumia 900.

The Galaxy S III has 4 different colour profiles you can choose from including a 'natural' option so future reviews will bring further light if the highly saturated colours are a property of the screen technology itself or that is how manufactures just celebrated their screens.

I got this link from Engadget. I've skimmed through it and seems pretty good comparison between the displays of the galaxy S I, II and III. There's also some comparisions between the OLED technology used in the S series compared to the iphone 4 IPS display technology. For colour accuracy I find it odd that the author doesn't mention that you can change the colour profile on the s III. You would think each colour profile would deserve a separate measurement(s).

A review/pre-review is out on the galaxy s4 and I thought they did a great job analyzing the new 1080p AMOLED display.

http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_gala...view-910p2.php

What's impressive out of a sample of 10 top of the smartphones (including Sony Xperia Z, LG Optomus G, Nexus 4, iphone 5), the galaxy s4 AMOLED display had the second highest white levels behind the Nesus 4. For anyone who doesn't know, high end IPS displays use to have noticeably better white levels than AMOLED displays. For Samsung to improve the white levels in just one year is quite impressive.

One thing I find kind of interesting though about the chart at the bottom of the page I linked that the nexus 4 has considerably better white levels than LGs flag ship phone. Maybe LG opted for lower white levels for better power management on their own device.

Are high white levels really a big deal? I don't think I've ever actually set my Nexus at maximum brightness. Its bright enough lower on AMOLED, and the battery lasts a lot longer.

It's not "my current AMOLED screen is crap most go out and speend money on the latest device" impressive but I just mention it because I just generally interested in advances in display technology. I just find it impressive how they can just keep advancing the screens display capabilities each year.

I to get my AMOLED display device pretty much at the lowest setting most of the day and I find it plenty bright. I think only the interwebs really complain about the screen not being bright enough because all the people I know with AMOLED display devices (a lot of people I know bought galaxy devices this year) never complained about there displays ever being to dim for any use even outside (though you need to have it near max sometimes).

Isn't the more impressive advance the huge increase in pixel density though?

Try a Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 with a Perseus kernel (XDA Developers). If one is looking for accuracy -- there it is.
