Is the Super AMOLED better than AMOLED screen in sunlight?

If you are the user of any unlocked mobile device having an AMOLED screen, you too would face certain problems when trying to use the phone in direct sunlight. In other words, it is nearly impossible to read anything on phones such as the HTC Desire that makes use of an AMOLED screen. In a view to combat this downfall of AMOLED screens, Samsung has recently released their new Super AMOLED screens that are not only much thinner, but at the same time can also deliver a much brighter and crispier image when directly held in the sun. Samsung conducted a recent test to determine which was better; whether it was the regular AMOLED display or the Super AMOLED screens releasing a video that pitted two mobile phones against each other, the HTC Desire that had a regular AMOLED screen and the Samsung Galaxy S that had a Super AMOLED screen.

The 7 minute long video shows both devices having their brightness at maximum and the position of the phones is switched around so as to ensure fairness. Under direct sunlight, the HTC mobile is practically worthless as it is nearly impossible to see anything apart from the big clock display on the screen. On the other hand, the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S Super AMOLED screen had a much clearer display, allowing users the ability of seeing nearly perfectly.

Although neither display would require any backlight, thereby prolonging the battery life of the phone, Samsung’s Super AMOLED screen fared better when it came to color saturation and contrast of the two screens. Considering the fact that the Galaxy S has an incredibly large 4 inch screen, it makes sense to have it equipped with a Super AMOLED display having better clarity. Apart from the display of the Galaxy, the phone will support enhanced graphics and be powered by a 1GHz processor.
