There have been lots of articles and discussions about how beautiful and stunning the display on the Nexus One looks, but nobody has yet done anything more than superficial eye ball commentary. Next week we begin a comprehensive multi-part article series with in-depth measurements and analysis for the displays on the Google Nexus One and the Apple iPhone 3GS.
It is being produced as a collaboration between DisplayBlog and DisplayMate Technologies. We will show you the good, the bad, and also the ugly unfinished rough edges and problems lurking below the surface of each display system. Each article will be introduced and discussed on DisplayBlog by me, Jin Kim, followed up with a detailed technical analysis and measurement data by Dr. Raymond Soneira on the DisplayMate website.
There will be three parts:
- Part I: Google Nexus One (Part Ia, Ib, Ic, Id)
- Part II: Apple iPhone 3GS (Part IIa, IIb, IIc, IId)
- Part III: Detailed Point-For-Point Shoot-Out Comparison
Parts I and II will be rolled out and expanded in several stages over a period of about a week, so be sure to check every day for updates.
- 2010.02.22 Google Nexus One: Part Ia has been posted with some very interesting results.
- 2010.02.23 Apple iPhone 3GS: Part IIa has been posted. One of the best mobile displays for use in bright ambient environments.
- 2010.02.24 Google Nexus One: Part Ib has been posted.
- 2010.02.25 Apple iPhone 3GS: Part IIb has been posted. Color temperature is fairly accurate but colors are washed out.
- Google Nexus One: Part Ic has been posted. Brightness & color shifts are significant.
- Apple iPhone 3GS: Part IIc has been posted. Shifts at off-center viewing angles are terrible, worse than the Nexus One.
- Google Nexus One: Part Id has been posted. The blue OLEDs are overdriven.
- Apple iPhone 3GS: Part IId has been posted. Power consumption is much higher than the Nexus One but the iPhone 3GS generates more brightness too allowing for viewing in bright environments.
