As we learned at Samsung’s Galaxy S event in New York City last night, Samsung is very proud of their Super AMOLED screen. We took it for a spin and compared it with the old HTC HD2 and the Zune HD. The contrast and black blacks are comparable to the Zune’s regular AMOLED screen, but the Samsung Super AMOLED screen seems much nicer under the lights. It looks to have deeper contrast as well.
Generally when I show people “Avatar” on my HD2, they are hugely impressed. They should be even more impressed when seeing it on a Samsung Galaxy S screen.
There was also a dark booth area where you could see how the screen looks in very low light.
Here’s a shot where I tried to make the screen show as much glare as possible. It doesn’t handle direct light as well as some of the devices did 10 years ago, but with a slight viewing angle change, it should do quite well.
