"According to a Sharp rep, it may be a while before we see IGZO-based smartphones here in the U.S. – they're currently being released by NTT Docomo in Japan."

That's too bad. A display that doesn't need to refresh a static image seems like a no-brainer for a mobile platform, and not nearly as beneficial in a desktop environment.

How are the viewing angles, colors, and brightness? Are they subjectively on par with IPS?

"I just purchased the iPhone 4S with Apple's coveted Retina display, so I was already used to super-crisp icons anyway. But I did notice the size of the screen which made me somewhat jealous given that the iPhone 4S screen is a stupid small 3.5-inches."

Sounds like buyer's remorse. Give back that one and get a LG Optimus G, or a HTC OneX+, or a SGS3 if you want a better display that's also quite a bit larger and more usable.

Stupid small 3.5 inches.....
Yeah, after using the note 2 for a couple of months, I love the size. I don't think that I will be going smaller than 5 inches ever again. 5.5 is perfect for showing photos, videos, or playing games. My thumbs would take up 20% of a 3.5 inch screen.

Longer battery life would be a plus as not all phones can fit a large battery like the note 2.

Why all the edge-let LED TVs? Local backlight dimming is soooo much better but basically no tvs have this anymore. There's a 3yr old Samsung and a few others, and then they just stopped and went edge-lit. Odd.

When I owned my iPhone 4, I had no complaints with the screen size. I think it's great that companies are trying out larger screens, but that doesn't mean that smaller screens are bad.

Maybe so they could make the tvs thinner, add the LED's to the side/edges instead of taking up space at the back? Seems to be a craze of making everything thinner these days, though I don't see a point in slimming down TV's any further. Who knows, maybe Samsung will make a TV with their bendable screens and you just roll it out onto your living room wall? lol
