Super AMOLED and Super LCD display technologies put to the test on video
Hopefully the guy will find a way to review visibility under direct sunlight as well, for indoor test the results are not surprising. The two “Super” displays – SAMOLED and SLCD beat the mere AMOLED and LCD in all aspects that matter. The AMOLED's main drawback seems to be that you can't get them, but on the other hand, in the future, you will bend them.

This is a "watch it yourself (physically)" kind of case. I would totally recommend to see the screen live rather than making a choice over a video. If it was an HD video recorded with a very good camera probably it would help a bit, but YouTube compression and stuff won't help. Finally, the test should have included some seconds in total darkness, there's where the colors and the deepness appear. But that's just my opinion :)

I was expecting a little more from this Screen Review.. Where is the comparison while outside so you can see which screens perform better under bright light or not? Anyways,, In comparison to any screen I had in the past before my I got my HTC Hero, all this new screens are big time ArrzKickers... So thums up on all this new technologies...

I have super-amoled on my CAPTIVATE - it is truly stunning - even outdoors

Yah I have no problems either with the Super AMOLED outdoors. It's not as bright as the iPhone display outdoors, but it is still viewable

i have the vibrant. I use it outdoors while wearing polarized sunglasses. Its a lil dark, but still completely usable. Technology is a beautiful thing.

Aren't the Super Sony LCDs going in the Droid Incredibles now because Samsung bailed on them?

samsung didnt bail on them. They cant manufacture enough to put on all the phones HTC wanted them on as well as their own. Cant blame samsung for making sure they had enough for themselves before they sold the lot off. They really need to get another factory rolling and push up production.

I will be getting a new phone by that time - so, no big deal...maybe they will make phones edible by then.
