Is it sharpness control, or simply some content not looking good due to the content's native resolution? Qhd monitors can have the same issue and depends how well the panel works with the gpu that is outputting signal. Maybe something that can be corrected in a low level hardware update.

Several reviews have pointed this out as well as some users, but not widespread enough to suggest all content is over sharpened.

BTW, this thread is a lit match for the fuse and powder keg known as G3 fans.

Fans will still deny and call the naysayers trolls. I guess Anandtech is a troll now along with other reviews and users pointing out the Qhd was more a negative than a positive for the display compared to 1080p.

Still, can the over sharpness be fixed, or an issue with the display? Great for owners if can be turned off.

the font sharpening on some background colors is really bad and hard to read for the eyes. i hope lg gives us the option to disable it or reduce it for a better reading experience.

I can understand them.
About sharpness and saturation, I read that they artificially (using software) made it such a. At a very low level. I do not know whether it is possible to fix

Oh, yeah. Me thinks that Anand is tooo nit-picking. I guess the future Galaxy F review will be all praise and kudos. But I definitely sure that LG will turn off oversharping in some future updates, maybe will just leave it on in Asia and Korean ROMs

Please tell me your not comparing a screenshot to a selfie taken in a mirror -_-

I've read all this stuff before when i bought my yoga 2 pro, being the first 3200x1800 res laptop. Nothing but comparisons to 1080p displays, critics talking about color inaccuracies. All the credible reviews said it was a total failure and more of a negative that a plus. But i'm glad I picked it up, I was able to hold it and hold a samsung notebook with a 1080p display and honestly it was night and day, the higher res wins. Maybe that's just me cuz i have 20/10 vision but if resolution is important to you don't overthink it and take all these display calibration tests too seriously. Make the judgement for yourself.

Mirror? What mirror? That is a picture I took of my G3. What do you even mean by "make the judgement for yourself"? I bought the G3 and have it with me, do you? The oversharpening is a flaw in the LG's software or display. It causes display problems with certain fonts (most obvious with a black font and a light coloured background) and it is a significant issue if you read ebooks. Hopefully this is something that LG can fix through a firmware update.
