That’s not what I’m saying,the note 10 display is actually very low,even the ancient Samsung s6 has a better display than note 10.

s10+ and s10 get better display than the note 10..but u ruined everything my mentioning s6....The Note 10 Plus offers 686 nits of brightness, which is brighter than both the S10 Plus (625 nits) and the S10 (611). In Vivid Mode, the Note 10 Plus' screen captures 212% of the sRGB color gamut compared to 200% for the S10 Plus; when we switched the displays to Natural Mode, though, the S10 Plus topped the Note 10 Plus (136.5% to 124.6% on the larger phone).

but all in all, when every criterion that determines the best is put into consideration, then note series is the better( best)

Then note10 has a resolution of 1080 x 2280 on a 6.3inch while the s6 sports a 1440 x 2560 on a 5.1 inch ,the s6 display is far superior than the note 10 display.

Resolution is resolution,amoled is amoled,I’ve held the 2 devices many times and I say it again,the s6 display trumps the note 10 both on paper and usage.the amount of nit packed inside a screen can’t rival resolution.
It’s like comparing 1080p with a 2k resolution.

Comparing 401 ppi density to 577ppi density is ridiculous man.

Is your Gotv the old one ?. first you need to go upgrade it to new Gotv at their office.. your Tv too must have a HDMI too...

if you are buying a new Gotv the HDMI cord come with it

bros this part I bold carry too much lie or do I say it's a mix up cos a new dstv got the HDMI out of box not gotv

For the main issue, A gotv decoder is design to receive signal of a certain resolution and data speed. Dstv is HD 720p while Gotv is SD 420p and most times less (240p)

so your Gotv with attached HDMI will never have the same feel and appeal of the dstv picture resolution cos you're only making the 420p resolution sharper not improved!

A dstv with AV - cord will still produce 720p but a bit dull to the face so basically your Tv connection adds little or no say on picture quality

if you wonder why can't they just make Gotv 720p ie HD
well the answer is simple, your antenna will be too tiny to encode the frequency being sent to the decoder so it's going to experience loads or picture glitches or cracking...
or I'll simply put that the quality of the channel stream was reduce so that the antenna will be able to recieve the sent signal, frequency from the transmission base...
(Mehn! all these grammar even me don confuse cheesy)
ever wondered why super sports 3 etc are not on gotv or are renamed super sport select 1,2,3,4,5?

well these are all lower resolution Supersport channels


but dstv and gotv share similar channels and these channels basically have same resolution like
Am epic etc
but Gotv will never have AM urban or AM showcase...

Good day fellow nairalanders. I observed that the picture quality of my GoTv is not as clear as a friend using dstv, even with the same channel. I want to know if it is my TV or does DSTV has better picture quality than Gotv? Thanks

DStv na dish
While Gotv ba antenna

Strong decoder will give you same quality as DStv.

U can get beta channels on strong but na better installer/hacker and money e go cost ya.
