    I never owned the device with OLED screen so I am not so sure if this is a good indicator but in the photo it seems that iPhone 4G has screen more black than 3GS. Or may be it is because it's IPS?? Can iPad users chime and see if this is the case?

    Just curious...:)

    Colors are also over saturated with oled. Not a good choice right now.

    at are other options for screens besides LCD


    is AMOLED the samething as OLED?

    i compared the nexus one to the droid, and the nexus one looked so much nicer (screen wise)

    I don't think there is a problem, his hand looks fine.

    Yeah, cant see my Nexus 1 screen outside even with brightness all the way up. Very irritating.

    I would love to see a picture of the iPhone 3GS at full brightness, next to a Nexus One at full brightness, next to a Samsung Galaxy S (yes I know it isn't on the market yet) at full brightness in direct sunlight.

    probably to compare LCD, AMOLED and Super-AMOLED.

    I'd like to see it as well. that SuperAMOLED looks crazy

    Yes this, I see very little point in a picture of a washed out screen, unless we can see what competing screen techs also look like under the same conditions with the same settings.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but prior to it's launch last year, wasn't everyone here clamoring for the 3GS to have an OLED screen?
