With my SAMOLED Nexus S, I'm able to say that even proper blacks have some lightness to them, as I believe some light may filter through from nearby sources. That's just me thinking of a logical explanation but it's particularly noticeable in a dark room, a pure black screen still 'glows' enough to distinguish it from the bezel and the screen when off. This difference is very minuscule however."Jaxidian said:Actually, you bring up a good point here although it's different than what you think it is. ;-)
My question now is, shouldn't the black background around the text on there be MUCH darker since this is an AMOLED? I thought a black pixel = a pixel with no backlighting to it? In this picture, the background behind/around the text is clearly lit up with some kind of backlight (well, I guess unless it was intentionally a dark gray color). Is this an indication that this is a bogus photo?
I've never had an AMOLED device before so I don't know. That's what I understood, though. I wonder if this is simply some other device rotated 180 degrees (to look like it has no buttons) trying to fool us...
