LCD Vs. AMOLED Vs. Super AMOLED Sunlight Test

Sometimes display technologies can be quite overwhelming for regular users who do not actually care about whether the display is LCD, AMOLED or Super AMOLED. However, each of these different technologies do perform differently and it makes sense to offer a look into their performance before deciding upon the phone of your choice.

Folks at TechBlog give us an excellent demo of how these three display technologies fare under bright sunlight. As you can watch from this long video below, there is little to choose from since none of the three screens are explicitly better. Nevertheless, the LCD on Nokia Xperia X10 appears to be marginally better than the Super AMOLED screen on Samsung Galaxy S which is in turn better than the AMOLED screen on HTC Desire.

What are your views? Watch the video and tell in the comments.

Samsung Galaxy S On T-Mobile Coming In July

Folks at Boy Genius Report have noted from sources that Samsung and T-Mobile are working something “major” for the month of July. What is it going to be? It’s anyone’s guess at the moment, but it could be the “Project Emerald” that we have been talking so much all along.

Earlier this month, we had speculated that the Project Emerald could actually be about bringing HTC Sidekick Twist to T-Mobile. Before that, it was speculated to be about a HTC Desire launch. But with Samsung and T-Mobile now noted to be working on something big, it can only be Samsung Galaxy S and this is probably the only other thing that deserves the status of being called “Project Emerald“. Don’t you think so?

Samsung Galaxy S On T-Mobile USA

Samsung Galaxy S, the Android 2.1 handset with SUPER AMOLED display and 5 megapixel camera could be coming to T-Mobile in the US market. Indications towards this come from a video posted on HowardForums where the much anticipated smartphone is shown running T-Mobile specific applications. The video has been removed since then.

This is not the only piece of evidence. The device model number for Galaxy S is learned to be Samsung SGH-T959. As you may know, the Txxx series number is only given to mobile phones carried by T-Mobile.

So there you have it – conclusive piece of evidence.
