Re: Great screen comparison for those thinking of getting S3 or E
I used to have a Galaxy Note which had a gorgeous screen, similar to the S3 and Nexus. I saw a little pixelation but the HD screen and high contrast more than made up for it. I sold it and missed it so much that I re-bought another one yesterday. Last night I was about to use my Note to read my school pdfs when I noticed the wifi was knocked out due to severe thunderstorming. I thought to myself "ah sh_t, got to use my EVO LTE since it has a 3g signal and I can get online, at least until the wifi comes back". I went on to use the EVO and was impressed how the text actually resembled E-ink ; sharp, clear, and dark. After twenty minutes, I got the wifi back and switched over to the Note in relief. To my surprise the text looked significantly less clear, pixilated, and the most surprising - not as dark as the EVO.

On another note (no pun intended), I always marveled over the thinness of the Note. Well after a few weeks with the EVO, it now feels like a brick, literally. The combination of being much thicker combined with an inferior screen made my decision that much easier. I doubted the EVO before, but this head to head trumping of what I considered the best phone available left me impressed.
