AMOLED vs. LCD vs. Super AMOLED in Direct Sunlight-FIGHT!

I have to say, I really love my Nexus One AMOLED screen.  It really looks amazing.  However, the one thing I really hate about it is the fact that in direct sunlight, the screen is barely visible, hazy.  Since the launch of the Nexus One, we have seen something Samsung is touting called a Super AMOLED screen, which is supposedly a newer generation AMOLED screen that is much more readable in direct sunlight. No, we still haven’t been able to get our hands on one to test just yet, but those Europeans have had the Galaxy S for a few days now, and we finally get to see a match-up: LCD vs. AMOLED vs. Super AMOLED. All T-Mobile customers are going to want to take a look at this as the Galaxy is rumored to be launching on the big magenta this summer.

In the video above, you will see  (from left to right) the Galaxy S (Super AMOLED), an HTC Desire (AMOLED), and the Xperia X10 (LCD) all lined up in direct sunlight.  In my view,  the Super AMOLED is definitely the most visible and beautiful. It really stands out. What do you folks think?
