The finest displays in the business compared on video - read the full textNow that's a sight that can make a geek's heart melt - six of the finest mobile phones of the year, laying next to each other. The reason behind this unusual gathering is a display comparison review that an Italian blog has conducted. For some reason they've also thrown in the Samsung i900 Omnia in...

I wonder how the iPhone would have gone in the dark if they'd turned the auto brightness off.

It goes dimmer when it's in the dark but it's still easy to see because your eyes adjust.

I wonder WHEN I can have the perfect phone: the one that will have absolutely NO complains about anything, size, weight, keypad, joystick, landscape, compass, GPS, touch response, easy to navigate customisable UI, fast and stable OS, email, sms/mms, HD video, HD playback, HD radio, stereo BT for all apps, real time notifications for all apps, fast multitask for at least 20 apps, battery for 2 days with 1 hr GPS, 2 hr full desktop view web browsing with flash, applets, 2 hr gaming, 2 hr of mp3, 2 hr of HD video play, 1 hr of HD recording and photo with flash, 1 hr phone call, 1 hr email/sms/mms, 1 hr just turning on/off for admiring such a piece of fine wireless engineering..

Unfortunately, all phones suck on daylight except iPhone. I expected more from the newest Omnia i8000 AMOLED, but it's a disaster outside, in the sun.

i believe everyone is entitled to their opinions and all but how can people say (from the video) that omnia 2 has a better display to galaxy or even omnia hd? Galaxy clearly has the best screen from the omled devices.

Honestly , I used iphone 3g , HTC HD , OMnia 2 , OMNIA HD ..My Bro uses Nokia N 97 .. Omnia Phones win By BIG Margins .. I have not used ANdroid Based Phones Yet .. OMnia HD Display is Simply AMazing .. Omnia 2 Brightness and performance simply stuns .. Iphone 3g is very Boring .. Just icons No Real UI as I can call it .. Among all these cell Phones I go For OMNIA 2 .. Just waiting for windows Mobile 6.5 to come Out And then wanna see its True Potential..Nokia N97 is just another 5800 Express Music..Iphone 3G music quality is Unmatched..Omnia HD is the Best as far as camera,style,display concerned but again its symbian mobile with its Limitation...IF U Guyz r wondering how i used so many cells at da same time,then Lemme tell U dat My causin Deals in Cell Phones ..

eth SOny erifsson AINO has the best LCD ouot at the moment, yes it is not an AMOLED but it is truly great. Its a shame it wasn't in this article. But then it is not out until in 6 weeks.

interesting idea though not well done.
no nokia in the lineup = discrimination
though it not much point adding a nokia should they not want it to win.
some how no other company can make screens as good an visible in all conditions like a nokia, especially sony ericsson.

No doesn't seem biased to iphone at all. It actually makes the iphone look really bad in the dark. If they were biased they would have either played with the setting to make the iphone look better in the dark or not showed the comparison in the dark.

Possibly made that comment because the iPhone has been raved about and he was shocked how poorly it looked in the dark compared to the others.

isnt the comment by the author a little biased for the iphone?

"We are guessing this has something to do with the shooting settings of the camera used for this comparison as we've hardly found any fault with the actual phone." he now blames the settings of the video recorder that the iphone's screen lost against the others?!

"When sunlight is involved however we have a totally new order with the iPhone 3GS easily trashing all its opponents." now this comment dosent have that excuse for the other handsets.

you tell me what that means...

You can't tell which is truly better with this video. The iPhone looked best with Sunlight and one of the worst in the dark. But the way this was filmed all the zooming in an out and stupid angles ... you only get a general idea. At times the Omnia HD looked better than HTC, but then when the camera moved the HTC looked better.

Well its individual choice. Because dispplay size and resolution and other features are more important. Anyway, OMnia HD and iphone are the best. HTC Hero is not bad either.
But in my opinion Blackbarry storm and N97 should be in this contest.

galaxy is the best on this test. but people made this test is unfair or maybe they didnt know how to make a proper way to test this fones. angle of the camera and direction of sunlight must be put on mind when doing this test. ill go for galaxy.
