Hi guys,


Root required?
-------
I want to buy Z tomorrow and I really want the Japan Display one! I saw a few pics.
I don't have any idea how to recognise that in the store! I suppose it's not possible to install the app and test it there! And don't have any other Z to compare! Any other way?
Thanks in advance.

To make things simpler, and avoid to mess around with error prone Terminal Emulator commands, here's attached a simple app I just developed for sorting out your panel manufacturer details :D

Nice app to check your display panel manufacturer and vote in the survey...

Mine shows "Sharp"...
Manufacture Code: 13W25 AAF

Second that.
Used to have a sharp, broke it, got new phone with jdc. W35.
Much better blacks, contrast no comparison again. Angles a bit better.

Yeah, the issue with angles is the lighter colours. They shift considerable. Opting for a darker theme/wallpaper will minimise this effect. Also, going slightly warmer on the white balance will help too.

But yes having seen various z's the blacks and contrast are considerably in favour of the JDC panel.

after several handset comparisons i did at a shop ( the shop guy was amazed at the end) i was picking a used XZ JDC was the best compared to sharp and it was very evident to naked the jdc panels have deeper colors and better viewing angles.

    Big thanks to inventor of this simple method :)

    It would be interesting to see if Sony does indeed use two display manufacturers, so i'm making this thread so people can actually see this. I posted this in the "Clearing up.. blah" thread, but it'll be more effective having a stand alone thread for it.

    Now, let's get down to business. You have to be rooted, install a terminal from the Play Store and type this into the terminal:

    - su
    - dmesg|grep -i panel

    Look for "Found panel: mipi_video_********_Full_HD_******"

    Some report that a reboot helps if you aren't getting a proper result.

    This far we've gotten these results (from the Clearing up.. blahh thread)

    JDC panel: 1
    - Found panel: mipi_video_jdc_Full_HD_mdy70

    Sharp panel: 2
    - Found panel: mipi_video_sharp_Full_HD_ls050t3sx01_id_dlogo

    Update: You can use _daz_'s app instead so you don't have to use the terminal. Download the app here.

    Hello guys, the screen types compare post in Chinese is writen by me, orignal post is here: http://bbs.gfan.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=5899499

    This post is based on the existing information, main idea is:

    1. SHARP LS050T3SX01 is a CG-Silicon panel with New Mode2 wide angle technology confirmed here: http://www.panelook.com/LS050T1SX01_SHARP_5.0_LCM_parameter_17692.html

    This type of CGS New Mode2 panel also used in ZTE niubia Z5 and this bulk has a very good viewing angle according to the Chinese media reviews.

    2. JDC which stands for Japan Display Central Inc, actually was just formerly know as Toshiba Mobile Display. TMD is good at LTPS but not good at wide angle technology, so many of TMD made panel is not wide angle, for example the Sony LT26i and ZTE Honor. But as we know almost all of Sharp's cell phone panel come with ASV, New Mode2 is a replacement to ASV, but Sharp didn't say much about it.

    So my idea is Sharp LS050T3SX01 is a wide angle panel but JDC's not. Of course this is based on concluding, not sure if the according information is totally wrong.

    PS: on the photo "暖" means “warm color”, "冷" means "cold color", “广角” means "wide angle" opposite to "非广角"

    All right, so it's confirmed. No need to root anymore ;)
    Brief recap:

    From Terminal emulator (or ADB shell) type:

    Code:
    cd /sys/devices/platform/mipi_dsi_panel.0
    cat panel_id

    If you get back "ls050t3sx01" you have a Sharp display.
    If you get "mdy70" you have JDC one.

    This excellent exercise has gained traction among Asian Xperia Z users and they have their conclusions:

    Google Translate is your friend.

    According to them Sharp has the best panel. Let's see what we conclude here.
