The SID or Society for Information Display Award is one of the most prestigious awards in the industry and thanks to their brand new quad-edge flexible OLED display technology, Samsung got it this year. Samsung had earlier won the Display of the Year Award from the SID back in 2013 and 2015 for its Super AMOLED display technology. The award was given to the South Korean company because of their technological prowess and the feature set which they displayed with the quad-edge flexible OLED display.


Although LG still maintains that curved displays are fragile and uncomfortable to hold, the SID award was given largely to Samsung because of the fact that the award winning curved displays are easier and more comfortable to hold than flat panels. Given the popularity and the apparent opinions of the experts, I think LG might need to rethink their decision to avoid curved displays. In other news, some rumors are predicting that the Google Pixel 2 could feature a curved display as well and we all know about the iPhone 8 OLED and its rumoured futuristic design.

Awards and Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphones are not really fresh news in 2017, but just to add one more fat feather to the two smartphone's arsenal, they now also own the title of being the "Best Smartphones" of 2017. The award was given to the S8 and S8+ after judging it on multiple criterions which includes but are not limited to user experience, innovation, performance, value for money and design. The judges who decide on the award are formed of renowned tech-journalists, market influencers, and analysts.

As the Galaxy S8 managed to stay true to all the criterions mentioned here and excelled more than any other in some, it was awarded the most prestigious smartphone award in Asia at the event after the judges reached a unanimous decision. Although it is without a doubt, one of the best smartphones to hit 2017 yet, do you agree with the decision or do you think the award should have gone to some other smartphone? Let us know in the comments.
