Mobile Phone screens – Super AMOLED vs AMOLED vs LCD in direct sunlight

Article by on Monday, 21 June 2010

AMOLED’s weakness is readability in direct sunlight. That’s not it’s weakness when compared to any other handset just a weakness to the mobile phone screen industry in general but one that’s topping Samsung’s technogoly from literally being great at everything.

Samsung’s been working hard to fix that with its new Super AMOLED technology.

Techblog created a great review showing the Samsung Galaxy S (4-inch, 480 x 800 pixel Super AMOLED) against the HTC Desire (3.7-inch 480 x 800 pixel AMOLED) and Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 (4-inch, 480 x 854 pixel TFT LCD).

It’s clear from the video embedded after the break that the LCD of the Xperia still has the slight advantage, but the Super AMOLED certainly makes a much stronger showing than its AMOLED competition.

Personally I don’t ever notice much between AMOLED and SAMOLED, I think they both look great and spend far more time looking at phone’s indoors than out, and certainly expect the glare when outside anyway.
