Gotta love OLED. 10 years ago, you couldn't see the screen on your handheld (GBA) outdoors and 15 you had to attach a stupid light to see it in the dark (GB)!

Technology is really advancing fast. What an age we live in.

Imagine telling this to someone 100 years in the past. They would crap their pants.
"Doors open themselves!"
"You can play games using a handheld device that emits lights to create psuedo-3D images!"
"You can see naked women instantly using a device that runs on billions of microscopic electrical switches!"

Wow the Vitas screen is fantastic and it makes the 3DS and PSP screens look like crap. Im so happy that they went with a big high resolution OLED screen.

I'm really glad Sony went with an AMOLED screen for the Vita.

Since owning a Samsung Galaxy S (and now S II) I can't go back to LCD.

It's not an AMOLED, it's only an OLED. But OLEDs have better pixel density than AMOLEDs because of the pentile matrix that AMOLEDs use, so to me an OLED looks better than an AMOLED. Plus this is higher resolution than the Galaxy S and S II.

[BTW, the Galaxy S uses Super AMOLED and the S II uses Super AMOLED+. Super AMOLED+ (not regular Super AMOLED) doesn't use the pentile matrix, so it looks really really really good.)]

Just be aware of burn-in with OLEDs. That's the only I don't like about them. But it's very hard to get burn-in unless you leave it on the same thing for a long time, so be careful when using the browser, because it might keep the buttons from it on the screen (if there are any, I'm not sure.)

AMOLED does not signify the use of a PenTile matrix (ie: RGBG pixel configuration as opposed to RGB). It's actually just a note of where the pixel controller is.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

Samsung have just gotten in the habit of using name differentiations to indicate PenTile (Super AMOLED) vs standard (Super AMOLED Plus) configurations for their Super AMOLED line.

So I spoke too soon - the OLED display on the Vita could be AMOLED of PMOLED (Passive Matrix) which has nothing to do with PenTile. AMOLED is simply the one most commonly used for OLED displays, so it's a fairly safe assumption that the Vita's OLED screen uses an active matrix controller.

And yeah, hopefully burn-in won't be too much of an issue. The only area of my SGS II screen where I can see a faint shadow is the status bar at the top of the screen (slight shadow of the edge and time on it), which shouldn't be a problem on Vita since there's no always-there status bar visible in games.

doesn't look that much better must be the screens. Not a good comparison. read the post on the article.

Pictures doesnt tell the whole story. A video would of been better.

early days yet for Vita,guys remember the Vita's version is a release day game & we all know playstation games get better & better each year (look at uncharted 1 & 3) so expect miles better looking games on Vita in the future.

also games quality depends on how good the developers make them,look at metal gear solid 4 which is still one of the best looking Ps3 games. ;)
LedZeppelin  +   1009d ago
yeah since the game shown is a psp game on the vita. look at gravity daze and uncharted, those games look amazing for launch titles.
josephayal  +   1009d ago
looks better than a high-end gaming PC, wow the vita is so amazing
REALgamer  +   1008d ago
Are you talking about graphics or screen quality?

Because graphics: honestly no, not even close (see: BF3, Crysis 2). But it looks amazing for a handheld.

And screen: actually yes, I can't wait until OLED monitors are available for a decent price. So far there have only been a few at about 17-inches costing $20,000-40,000.

Luckily Samsung's huge usage of OLED screen for portables is bringing prices way down.

i find this comparison irrelevant
The only similarity both pictures share is a girl holding a mace. i have not played Lord of the Apocolypse but from what i can see; the environment is different, both female characters are different, the maces and body armors are also different. It would also help if the author stated which version of the psp he/she is using because not all psps have the same display. That makes it obvious that the author of that post just wanted to make the psv look good by using an unfair comparison.
REALgamer  +   1008d ago
That is a PSP-2000 (speaker holes higher, but sides not rounded off like the 3000).

But either way, an OLED screen will ALWAYS look far better than LCD in contrast, black levels and response time.
