AMOLED is a terrible, terrible choice for an Internet consumption device because THE INTERNET IS WHITE. I use my phone primarily for browsing simple websites and Google Reader, and even with the 2200 mAh extended battery in my 4" AMOLED smartphone, I have to recharge it every 6 hours.
I used my wife's Droid X for a full day once, with the stock 1380 mAh battery, and lasted 14 hours before a refill! Almost double the life out of about half the battery, on a larger screen!
AMOLED in a smartphone is a sin against reason. AMOLED needs to be reserved for devices like TVs and desktop monitors that are plugged in all day anyway.
Crappy engineering, Samsung. The quality/size/price/power compromise was not well thought out in South Korea.
