I have to admit that I was a little disappointed yesterday when the news came out that the HTC Desire and a few other phones would be switching from the AMOLED screen to the Super LCD screens due to supply concerns. Then again, my carrier is in one of the U.S. "regional markets" looking to get the Desire sometime in the next couple months, so I've been biting my nails waiting to upgrade to this phone. The question is, what's the real world difference in the screens? Howard of HowardForums took a look:
While there is a bit of a noticeable difference at some angles with the S-AMOLED screen and AMOLED screen over the Super LCD, the difference looks to be pretty minimal. I'm not completely sold that most of us would be able to tell the difference unless they are right next to each other as they are in the video. If the battery life is improved with the Super LCD as HTC has claimed, it may just be a worthwhile tradeoff. Is it Autumn yet?
