There are so many devices out in the market that have great specs and can do many things all at once. Over the past several years one major shift has happened and it’s the attention to the display. This area has grown from what used to be 2-inches to what seems to be the minimum standard of 3.5-inches. The display is the center of your device, the area you look the most and brings the mobile experience home. Remember when people used to say “Why would you watch videos/movies on your phone”… now it’s becoming why would you not. The picture quality is so incredibly impressive.
I grabbed hold of the Apple iPhone 4, HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant. All these touchscreen devices have a stellar list of specs that range from a 5 megapixel camera, flash, Android 2.1, 1GHz Snapdragon processor etc… but what I really wanted to test out what the display in each. The iPhone 4 comes with a 3.5-inch Retina Display with a resolution of 960×640. The HTC Desire has a 3.7 inch Sony Super LCD with a resolution of 480×800. And finally the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant has a massive 4-inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of 480×800.
You can check out the video yourself of the comparison and let us know which is best – They quality is high on all. The video was shot in HD and the video I picked to stream was from YouTube in HD.
