It is indeed rather strange that BlackBerry devices weren't included in this test.. Commonly known they produce very good visibility in broad daylight...

Why BlackBerries not included in this list? BB phones are great in broad day light

It is physically impossible for any LCD to higher contrast than amoled due to black pixels being off and having such beautiful colors. By having such extreme contrast, deep blacks, vivid colors and eliminating backlighting it was a no brainier the amoled screens would come out on top. They are marvelous even in direct sunlight

Nicely compared. But the article needs precision when comparing such values.

Hi guys, think your missing one of the top phones this year, the Xperia S.

I'd be interested to see how that does in your test

It would be very much good if you could add Desire S also in the line.
