iPhone 4 Retina Display: Drains 30% more Battery Life?

We have some interesting details about Apple’s new Retina Display now, as Samsung has claimed that OLED technology is better and that Apple’s IPS technology still has a lot of catching up to do.

As reported from Engadget, a representative from Samsung has recently spoken in the Korean media, adding that the new display screen featured on the iPhone 4 would only offer a 3 to 5 percent advantage in sharpness over an AMOLED screen.

Furthermore, Samsung thinks that Apple’s new screen could drain battery life by 30% more and ultimately concedes that their AMOLED screens offer better viewing angles and contrast.

Here is a quote from the Korean Herald: “Structurally, IPS LCD technology cannot catch up with AMOLED display technology.”

While Jobs thinks that IPS LED technology is superior to OLED, Samsung obviously think different. Let us know your thoughts on this. Is battery life a worry for you?
