Re: AMOLED Screens

I am a big fan of Super AMOLED Plus, but not the older Super AMOLED. Only the new "Plus" screens have true, full pixels. The older Super AMOLED screens employ a sub-pixel layout that's noticeable to me; it has a "screen door" effect that doesn't look smooth at all (to me), because you're not actually getting the full 800 x 480 pixel resolution across the whole color spectrum.

I think the contrast ratio numbers can be deceptive to those bad at math (most of us.) It's important to check these things out in person. Looking purely at the numbers, some might think the 50:000:1 ratio is 60x better. It's not. On a scale of grey, with 0 being true black and 1,000 being true white, we're talking about the difference between 1 and 2. Most people will never notice nor care.
