    Odd that it's TFT from the company that renowned for it's superior AMOLED...

      Narwhale is totally correct. An AMOLED screen of this size would be extremely expensive. LCD screens had the same problem when they were new. If there's a 1/5000 chance (an example number, I don't actually know what the real number is) that any pixel will be dead, the chances of making a perfect screen drop dramatically beyond a certain size. As the technology matures and the success rate improves, big screens will become economical to produce.

    Anamnesia, considering how hard it is for them to keep < 4.3" AMOLEDs in supply, it's not at all surprising that this large screen is not AMOLED. I'm not sure such screens even exist.
