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.

That’s not good news for Samsung, though they’ll be heartened to hear that the Super AMOLED on their Galaxy S performed much better in the shade than the HTC Desire (an AMOLED screen phone) and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, which has an LCD. Take a look at the example below, which shows the X10 on the left, the Galaxy S on the right and the Desire nestled in between. There’s not a ton of difference between the LCD and Super AMOLED, but I’d say that the LCD would make for an easier read while out and about. [TechBlog]
