It looks better than most other phones you can find on the market. The AMOLED display is known to have vibrant colors and much better viewing angles. These are two main reasons why Google decided to equip the Nexus 6 with an AMOLED display.
That is a good thing. Colors look much better and the screen is able to be very bright outdoors so the user can easily use the phone when the sun is up and shinning.
There is one big problem that prevents many users from using a phone which has AMOLED display. The problem is called screen burn in and affects all smartphones with AMOLED displays.
Screen burn in is a ghost image or permanent discoloration. This is caused when the same image is being displayed over and over again and the brightness is set to max.
When a part of the screen burns, it will show a light shadow of whatever has been burned in. For example, if the screen has burned in near the notification bar, you will see a light shadow of the battery icon and timer.
On most cases, this cannot be fixed becauase as the description says, screen burn in is a permanent discoloration. But Galaxy users have reported good things and in some cases they have managed to fix the problem.
