The key element for a great smartphone has always been a truly innovative and top performing display, and the best leading edge smartphones have always flaunted their super high tech displays. It's the display performance that determines how good and how beautiful everything on the smartphone looks, including camera photos, and also how usable and how readable the screen remains in high ambient lighting. It is the crown jewel of the smartphone.
A lot of amazing engineering and design goes into making your smartphone. And smartphone displays are one of the most important parts — they're your window onto the internet, and the world.

Good Gear Guide claims to have "sighted" advertising materials that suggest the gorgeous 55-inch EM9600 OLED TV we saw at CES will hit Australia in October for a cool $10,000 (up from $8,000 in the US). No wonder it’ll supposedly be marketed as the 'Rolex of TVs'. Then days later, it emerged that the secret OLED tech behind both LG's and Samsung's next-gen TVs has allegedly been stolen and leaked to Chinese and Taiwanese competitors.
LCD manufacturers sure do love their acronyms. Samsung in particular went trademark crazy late this March, registering "WAMOLED", "FAMOLED", "PAMOLED" and "TAMOLED" with the US Patents Office.

Should you be worried that HTC is swapping its AMOLED screens for Super LCD panels? According to this video comparison... no, not really.
Samsung's Super AMOLED screens have caused quite a stir lately, and as this video comparison shows, it certainly handles direct sunlight better than an AMOLED screen. When put next to an LCD though, you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference.
