The screen quality on your mobile device is so important. It makes the experience, especially when you’re using it outdoors in the sun. The videos below were shot in Greece and compared 3 devices with 3 different screens in direct sunlight: the Samsung Galaxy S which has a 4-inch display Super AMOLED with a resolution of 480 x 800, vs.the HTC Desire that has a 3.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800 and the 4-inch TFT LCD display of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (resolution of 480 x 854). The X10 and Galaxy really battle it out over the 6 minute video, while the Desire seems to be just hanging around for kicks. Even in directly sunlight the quality of the LCD and Super AMOLED is incredibly high.
