Not only are none of the phone screens HDR (unless the newly released S8/S8+ are), but they're still pentile for ****'s sake. There were rumours the S8/S8+ would finally use an RGB array, but they don't. That makes all the difference in the world for VR where the clarity actually matters a lot. 1440p pentile leaves visible subpixels, which is super distracting with its obnoxious diamond pattern. Reduce the advertised resolution of a pentile screen by 1/3rd, that's what you're actually getting. The only people who claim it's anywhere nearly as good as having, you know, real pixels, are Samsung's own engineers who developed the current pentile type used. "You can't tell any difference! Hurrr!" - TL;DR of one of Samsung's (self-proclaimed) engineers ****-posting nonsense in the comments of some random site.
