htc evo why no amoled?
Ok well it appears from youtube videos from htc reps that the screen is a tft and not an amoled. I know a lot of people are upset about that, but wouldn't you think that there was a reason for doing so. I work at sprint (retail rep) and I see the samsung moment (amoled) next to the htc hero (tft) all the time and IMO the hero's screen looks a nicer than the moments. What's your opinion on the amoled tft thing?

I think they did it to save battery power?
Or maybe because of the screen size?
and I can attest that the screen resolution on my Moment is wack and the resolution on my ipod Touch is better....
So I'm hoping I wont have to see those damn lines because the phone couldn't handle the HIGH resolution... or the High Quality of a video...I feel like I'm slowly floating to my HTC EVO... you're too far away

Super AMOLED is the real deal technology but they sunk a ton of money into specs that are more justifiable at this point in time.

I am currently on a blackberry and do not like it so my next phone will most likely be an android phone unless something else enters the Sprint picture before hand and piques my interest. AMOLED or TFT this is going to be an awesome phone and if it helps save me some money then whatever they choose is good!

I'm thinking the cost of the 4.3 version of the AMOLED display was way too much. But in a way, I'm glad the EVO 4G will have a TFT screen... My Nexus One's AMOLED is quite hard, if not impossible to read outside in the direct sunlight... I've got some screen protectors on the way (NuShield) that have an anti-reflective coating to them, so we'll see how that works, but if I were to start over, I'd really debate if getting AMOLED is worth it... it's not like it's giving my great battery life, since the Nexus has pretty bad battery life and most of that (according to the battery usage app), is from the display, and I run mine only at 25%...
Can't wait to see the EVO 4G in person... I'll reserve final judgement on my own TFT vs AMOLED debate...

i dont understand why they would limit the display to 65k colors. I dont think that will look very good at all.
idk i guess it all depends tho, we shall see whats the phone is in stores. but any TN-lcd is limited to 18 bits at the very most.
that will tell you about color depth. Twisted Nematic (TN) LCDs are limited to 18 bit color depth which is 262k colors, allthough some display drivers are only written for 16 bits of those 18 which gives you 65k colors.
Also, TN panels represent colors using only 6 (6red +6green+6 blue=18) bits per color, instead of 8 (8red +8green +8blue), and thus are not able to display the 16.7 million color shades (24-bit truecolor) that are available from graphics cards. Instead, these panels display interpolated 24-bit color using a dithering method that combines adjacent pixels to simulate the desired shade.
