HTC Titan's screen outdoor visibility

It’s now a well known fact that the HTC Titan‘s 4.7″ SLCD screen is gigantic but what I really wanted to test was its outdoor visibility compared to the Super AMOLED displays from Samsung which are currently the best in this lighting situation. The first thing you will notice on the HTC Titan and HTC Radar is that unlike all of HTC’s previous handsets there’s no air gap at all between the glass (Gorilla Glass here) and the display panel. The result is that contrast, viewing angles and outdoor visibility are greatly improve because there’s less light refraction and dispersion messing things up. As you will see in the pictures below outdoors visibility is nearly identical on the HTC Titan and Samsung Omnia 7.

It took a while but HTC has finally “fixed” one of the most annoying hardware “issue” that plagued their handsets. I’ll make another post later showcasing the screen viewing angles.

    Looks like the Titan slightly edges out the Omnia in side-by-side white screen viewing! (pic no. 6)

    Good job HTC!

    That’s because the Omnia 7 automatically lowers the Super AMOLED panel brightness depending on the colors displayed on the screen (this is non-user controllable and overrides the brightness setting of the OS). The whiter the image the lower the brightness.

    In the second and last photo where they have practically the same image the HTC still edges out.  It would be good to know what the settings are though.

    After being disappointed by the fact that Nokia’s Lumia 800 doesn’t contains a FFC, I am looking again at the Titan. But I still await the final specs on Samsung Omnia W or whatever else they have available for Mango
