Hi guys, I just bought an Incredible S online for $480. It was a pretty good deal. Anyway, I checked the specs and saw that the IS is equipped with a SLCD screen. I haven't been able to find out much about the comparison of a SLCD and a SCLCD. Does anyone have some info?

I think they are just the same thing. I believe SLCD is a product developed by Samsung and Sony, so I think maybe different names for the same product .

Super Lcd is much clearer than super clear Lcd. G2 I believe used the super clear Lcd and IS has a clearer and brighter display than the G2.

The Nexus S has a Super AmoLED screen in some geographies, complete with PenTile matrix.

G2 is just another super lcd phone.
Super clear lcd is pure samsung technology, and like the super amoled, it is only for samsung phones. Nexus s i9023 and samsung i9003 are the only higher end phones using one.

In short, sclcd is comparable to super amoled. Better color balance, great brightness on sunlight, but at the cost of weaker contrast(not as black as samoled)

Yeah I got pretty lucky. Some guy on ebay had it for sell for $480. He said he bought it brand new for $550; he only had it for a week. I messaged him and asked him if there was anything wrong with the phone. He said no, but he bought the phone thinking it would work with AT&T's 3G. He even specifically listed in his auction "DOES NOT WORK WITH USA 3G". Little did he know AWS is the T-mobile's 1700/2100 frequency band. So, his loss is my gain

Very curious of why HTC just slipped in the AWS band?? I'm sure they weren't targeting T-Mobile US customers. Maybe the AWS band was intended for Canadian services?

HTC new exactly what they were doing when they put the AWS band in the Incredible s. They're just getting the most for their product. They already new they had a version of the phone going to Verizon as an exclusive phone. They also have it going to Virgin and Bell in Canada which means those particular models will work on AT&T 3G/4G. So now you have Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile customers buying one phone. (AT&T and T-Mobile customers have to buy it unlocked at full price)
