ppi blah blah blah. all i know is when i put my eyes on a sammy super amoled screen, i am wowed everytime. the "realistic color" of other lcd screens are flat shiney and hard to see. amoled just pops right out at you! who care if you can read fine print bettter. a little pinch and zoom and boyah! fixed!

I agree, I still love the Super AMOLED. But the latest tech always gets more love. Unless it is on a iPhone, of course, than 2 year old tech is still the bomb.....

super amoled also saves battery has better viewing angles and higher contrast ratio its a no brainer

AMOLED doesn't really save more battery. Unless you're viewing a plain black screen. AMOLED even consume more power than LCD when you view a pure white screen. Power efficiency on AMOLED is just a marketing gimmick.

You know these screens are all getting better & better. I am never going to bust out a magnifying glass ever, so to me I just go with what I like.

I am more concerned about screen size more than anything. I would love to see a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with a 5.3" Super AMOLED+ 720p HD screen.

That would bring joy to my eyes! lol

SAMOLED+ HD hopefully will bring more power efficiency improvements...

I just wish I could see my GNex screen better outdoors when its sunny. Even cranking the brightness up doesn't help it much......

It's my only issue I have with what is otherwise an awesome phone.. :(

lol, if bragging that you can afford 1 is one of the reasons you bought an iPhone, sadly, you're the broke @ss one here who probably could barely afford it on your Mcdonalds pay.

They need the other four so that they can do on them what they can't do on their iPhone.

I agree. Just three months ago PA was posting microscopic images pegging the GN as the clear winner. Personally, I think they're drinking too much iJuice which is rendering them severely iNcApaciTated.

I prefer Sammy's SAP displays over Apple's Truely MiSleading iRetention displays. I would have to see this HTC One X for myself before rendering a final decision.

The thing is that the ppi doesn't say that much, because the iPhone and the LG Nito HD have about the same ppi but the LG has a much higher pixel amount per square inch

It isn't fair man :'(

I gotta agree. I want what my eyes like. I used to like LCD screens....until I got my first phone with an Amoled screen.

I am a Amoled fan now.

They both have their pros n cons....just pick what you like.

So the ONE X is the winner here. Good for HTC. Screens are a HUGE seller in the stores, as those who walk in not really having a decsion made will be drawn to a great screen. Bodes well for their flagship, at least short term.

Maybe I do not get it, but why all the big deal on viewing angles? I look at my screen head on, and wouldn't mind ifpeople next to me can't see it. I would almost prefer "poor" visibility for every angle but mine. Why is it I am the only one who feels this way?

Viewing angles play a part in outdoor viewing when trying to avoid the sun, light.

Big example of this is the Rezound vs. the RAZR. I cant use my Rezound outside that good. The screen is also too reflective. Its an actual mirror.
