Samsung Omnia II Versus Nokia N900: Display Duel in Direct Sunlight

We’ve seen video comparisons between mobile browsers, processors and entire phones, but it’s very rare that we get to compare a couple of handset displays, according to the way they reflect sunlight. Here’s Samsung Omnia II facing Nokia’s N900 in this sort of duel:

Omnia’s got an OLED display, while the Nokia smartphone uses an LCD display. Of course, Samsung’s device has the upper hand in this battle, which is pretty strange, considering the general opinion that states the OLED is very bad in direct sunlight.

The folks of even posted a story a couple of months ago, regarding a bunch of displays that were completely unreadable in sunlight and they used the OLED technology. It seems that the newer displays of this kind are much brighter and behave better.
