Dear GSM ARENA, this is a very useful piece of test u have added, now i think this completes your review system. ofcourse u have always described the sunlight legibility but numbers speak for themselves. one thing you coul do is specify by giving just a bit detail for non geeks on how u fare this test and rankings. thank you for all your work. much appreciated!!
GSMArena, please clarify: do you set the brightness on all phones to 100%?
try to compare the nokia 701 the them then see the differences....(but install the display brightness and put the sensor off the put the display to the maximum)
as i have nokia c7 and i did like i said above and compare it the the s2 in the sunlight and i noticed that the c7 is better. adding that c7 is amoled while the 701 got the second generation of clear black.
just do what i did but with the 701 and than compare.
N.B: the nokia e6 also has a pretty display in the sunlight.
waiting for a reply from you GSMARENA
i'd like to see this test done regularly .. also if u categorize phones accordingly (like "A": category with the best sunlight legibility. "B":2nd best .. and so on) it would be understandable without numbers for the non-geeks .. also this would work nicely with the battery test.
Your test is flawed:
- Not enough light
- Not enough variance in angles for each device to give average experience
- Not enough background illumination to properly show the contrast
You also need to show the difference for each device with the auto-brightness and full brightness setting.
Also be careful of the camera used to take the pictures you are using to judge/show others.
(N.B. this rant does come from experience doing a similar activity and refining it)
even strongest studio lights cannot be compared to sunlight. There is too much difference.
Great new feature, please provide it in all future reviews.
Also was hoping for Galaxy Nexus i9250 ratios, but I can infer they're among the ones on other AMOLED devices from Samsung. Good.
To be honest I can't tell much of a difference except of some really poor models (Gigabyte, Iphones).
Great idea gsmarena. But i wud ask u to b a bit more detailed with the images (with closer shots). Another idea that i wud lyk to present to u (just a random one7) is-
why dont u chose the best of smartphones from each brand for each price tier(eg. 400-500 euros) n compare their features n specs in a tabular form. Dis cud help viewers chose exactly which phone they want. U cud carry out this comparison for phones released each quarter. For eg, lets make a coparison for Q2 2012, u cud take one x from htc, lumia 900 from nokia, galaxy s3 from samsung,quad d from huawei(if its released before july) for the 400-550euro category n compare them. Similarly u cud choose one v, galaxy m n so on for the mid ranger category n compare those. U cud even use this for tablet comparison. Just an idea that crossed my mind.
