I know you said that based on your experience, but I am jealous of my friend's HOX which has the white one. The sharpness is really pretty much identical, but his black level and contrast is better than mine. Unless its like the variances in the HOXs themselves...and Acer has more than one variant of screen which would still come under the same vendor label.
ok never-mind the contrast it can vary due to many reasons including the purity of the glue
but to help you stop being jealous
check the icons really close any icon with solid color you will see a sort of scan-lines pixel grid inside the solid color area, display tester go to color test and check the banding, the acer one has some banding at the top
just look into any solid area up-close and you will see the grid, if you have glasses and take them off its much more clear
the same sort of pseudo perceived density that pentile amoled screens causes, from distance or with if you have your glasses on the grid disappears due to being too small and hence you preceive it as the same sharpness
in comparison iphone 4 screen and the sharp screen on the One X has no pixel grid whats so ever, the solid areas are perfectly clean
I had looked for that when I saw it previously but even if I stuck the phone near my nose I couldn't see it as you had suggested. No banding visible using those display testers either. His also goes a LOT brighter on max than mine which I guess would help in sunlight. I do have good eyesight, but I just cannot see the grid issue. I could see it easily on phones like the Morotola Atrix. Saturation on his is a bit high though. When you go the app drawer, the green icon at the bottom is literally luminous on his.
the acer screen is a lot brighter and the white is insane, its almost boring how everything is balanced well lol
the grid is there but its no where near as bad as the pentile of course, at angles you can see the grid easier
anyway its just nit picking, im only saying there are advantages to the yellow screen the deep black and this grid thing, gives it a little amoled feel to its sharpness and a cleaner overall
the acer screen is less saturated than the sharp tho? maybe ur friend has a third vendor?
His blacks are deeper, but as you pointed out, there is huge variance between screens anyway. As for the saturation, I find it hard to understand how it varies. We know for sure its the Acer one, because we pulled out the panel_id from the logs. My suspicion is not a third vendor, but that Acer have more than one panel they are providing to HTC....naughty, but possible. At angles the screen does "fizzle" a bit more than the Sharp one...perhaps thats what you mean by visible grid. Head-on though, I cannot see it at all. Also, interestingly things like icons seem nearer to the surface on his...almost like someone printed a sticker and stuck it to the underside of the glass. I don't think the Acer one is inferior from the one I saw...just different....and certainly not just more white..but more uniform as well.
yup thats exactly what i am talking about the fizzile is no where near as bad as pentile but its there since i use glasses without my glasses i can see it more, head on with my glasses it disappears
i think we have one Acer and than the lamination gets in, me n my cousin have the same exact screen but colors r bit different on his also his has cleaner glue when viewed at an angle and so his view angles are cleaner, he also has the backlight spots at the bottom which i heard they r in there to assist view angles (i dont have those on the bottom but i have them on top and left/right)
the cleaner glue and view angles plus his white phone gives the illusion that its floating/closer to the surface but i checked n i checked its not really, its just that his screen is popping out more in your eye
uniformity has to do with lamination and not the panel vendor
lol HTC will drive us crazy with these variations
im so curious about the sharp screen now, sadly i don't have anyone around to compare, i only experienced it with my first HOX and i keep remembering it was a lot sharper
