Weekly poll: what makes a great screen?

One could argue that the most important component of one smartphone is the display. It dictates the size of the phone, for one. An awesome chipset wont help much with gaming on a tiny, low-res display. And such a display will prevent you from properly enjoying the photos from even the best camera.

But what makes a display great? That depends on what you need. 120Hz refresh rate is a new feature to boast but it is yet to prove itself a vital feature. Something more basic like contrast ratio or sunlight legibility is a good place to start.

There isnt a single best display, however. Some people like punchy colors, others insist on accuracy. So in the poll below you can vote for multiple options at once. Sunlight legibility and power efficiency are not an either or proposition, as screen tech advances both are possible simultaneously.
