    Hey guys. Earlier this month their was an article about the Incredible switching from AMOLED to SLCD. Well, it has happened. I have 2 friends that ordered Incredibles last week and received them today and they both have the new SKU that was initiated for the new model. So, if you wanted an Incredible with an AMOLED screen, you are probably out of luck, atleast if you order from Verizon's website. Compared to my AMOLED screen though, I really can't tell that much of a difference between them. Just thought I would let you know that they are out there now incase anyone really cares.

    Did yours come with 2.2 preinstalled? Weird, I guess maybe it just depends on which warehouse it comes from. Both of theirs had the SKU ending with a 3 instead of a 2.

    the slcd is alot sharper, but as said the colors on the amoled are richer. By just looking at them you wont notice the diffrence you really have to dig deep to notice. this is just an example there are many articles on the web.

    Does anyone know if the touch sensitivity is the same on SLCD? I find that the sensitivity in the AMOLED is sometimes not that great.

    Got a replacement with docs a few days ago. The touch seems to be the same. No difference I can tell.

    how can you tell if it is a slcd or amoled?

    The main way is to see what the SKU is on the box. The AMOLED ones end with a 2 and the new SLCD ones end with a 3. That is the easiest way to tell.

    Does anyone know what you'll get if you have to go through insurance if you lose or break your phone? Amoled or slcd?

    Very little difference but maybe the slcd will draw a bit less power

    Play a high contrast color video, especially with blacks side by side
    with OLED -vs- LCD and you'll see a staggering difference, OLED whips
    the crap out of anything LCD, although LCD is cheaper.
    Great example of this is between a Droid X and a Samsung Fascinate!!

    Anyone with the SLCD care to let us know how it works out in the sun?

    it works about the same as the amoled devices better than regular lcd but still not amazing. but the slcd doesnt make the capacitive sensors on the screen insanely visible under any sort of light which is really nice!

    but this is just my experience with mine

    Yeah, SLCD doesn't perform any better in the direct sunlight. Also, the SLCD does seem to run the battery down quicker than the AMOLED. My friend and I tested ours with the same settings and the same stuff running and the AMOLED lasted about 3.5 hours longer than the SLCD.

    I guess nobody knows what you'll get in the event of an insurance replacement.....

    if its insurance and they replace it with a new device it will be a slcd but if its refurb most likely will be amoled

    I've read in several places that if you had an AMOLED phone, they will try to replace it with an AMOLED phone. Try googling "Droid Incredible SLCD AMOLED replacement"

    I'm not worrying about it. My phone is fine and does more than I can do with it. I was just curious.

    I wouldn't be so sure. Engadget's AMOLED Desire vs. SLCD Desire comparison showed that the SLCD model burned through the battery FASTER.
