Samsung Shows How Super AMOLED is Better

When Samsung showed off its Super AMOLED-phone last month, we were intrigued at what made it a special phone for the South Korean company. The specs were impressive, but the unique feature of a "super" AMOLED is what made it stand out.

Samsung had just released a promotional video that expressed why Super AMOLED is better than the TFT technology that's used in the iPhone or the regular AMOLED in the Google/HTC Nexus One.

Perhaps even more impressive is that Samsung's Super AMOLED is viewable in sunlight – something that current OLED phones can't boast.

    I have the Zune HD, and while the screen looks amazing indoors or on a cloudy day, in full sunlight the display suffers. This is apparently typical of OLED displays however.

    I've seen videos of AMOLED displays performing in full sunlight with very few problems. Of course, it isn't as bright as it would be indoors, but it's definitely usable and far better then any other display tech I've seen. As far as I can tell this is as close to 'the perfect display' that we have right now, though OLED technology has to come down drastically in price before we'll start seeing it in desktop/notebook display and televisions.

    Oldest trick in the book. Crank up the brightness for your product in the "demo" and wash out the colors on the "old" product, call it massive improvement. Repeat for every display generation. The fact that we all watch this demo on the old tech that is supposed to not be able to display all the awesomeness is just extra irony. Way to part the fools from their money i suppose.
