I believe gsmarena and anandtech both mentioned smearing. Not a big big deal but I wish Samsung would do better.

I'd take the S5's SAMOLED with smearing under extreme low light over any competing IPS with backlight bleed at all levels of backlight.

To each its own, that's like runflat vs regular tires to each pros and cons

A little something I found that helps greatly reduce the "purple" smearing:
1. Set your screen profile to Pro Photo or Movie(preferred).

& more importantly.

2. Download Lux from the Play store. Enable night mode and set the White Balance to Fluorescent.

Don't thank me, I'm useless.

Yep... My S5 and Note 3 have near-identical levels of smearing at the lowest brightness in the middle of the night in a dark room.

But if that's the price I pay for having a screen where black really is black (as opposed to dark grey) and doesn't use battery for black, I'll take AMOLED any day.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

Yes, it suffers in the same way.

It's a problem related to AMOLED technology. If you use a totally black screen, all points are off. When you move a line in this screen, the points must be switched on and the response time cause the problem.

The only solution is not using a totally black background. Use a DARK one, but not full black. This, for exapmple, is what Samsung have done in the setting screen. Try it.
