Apple does provide us with super crisp looking displays with the Super Retina display. But let us clear that “Super Retina” is a fancy name used by Apple for OLED(Organic Light Emitting Diode). The funny part is that Samsung and LG supply the “super retina” display to Apple, meaning you will get the same thing with almost all smartphones.
