Any upcoming phones coming soon that isn't AMOLED display?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a 2 year old HTC Incredible which still serves me well, aside from a cracked camera lens, I am available for an upgrade any time from Verizon. I was close to getting the S3 as it has great reviews and after owning my 3.7inch LCD and surfing the net, I'd be glad for a larger screen. I went to the Verizon store to check out the S3 before I make the purchase and I remembered how much I hate the AMOLED displays.

I guess I am way more sensitive to it but to me, the colors are WAY too saturated. The greens look like it's radioactive and the whites have a bluish tint which would annoy the hell out of me. My incredible is SLCD which produce a much more natural color tone. While blacks aren't as black as the S3, the whites are actually white. Even the year old HTC Rezound's display looked much sharper and crisper than the S3, and Motorola RAZR which uses AMOLED I believe.

I saw the previews for the new upcoming Motorola RAZR HD but that employs the AMOLED as well so I doubt I am going to like that. I saw a couple of my friend's / coworker's S3/S2 and they all look greenish/bluish so I doubt it was just that specific display floor model at the store. My HTC Incredible's camera is cracked so all pictures come out out of focus and incorrect lighting so I am needing an upgrade soon but there are no options right now as the top phones are pretty much only S3 and iPhone5.

HTC makes nice phones and I don't mind sticking with them but I have heard nothing of their new phones coming out but it would be soon? Any one have any news on other phones that are coming soon without AMOLED displays?

The One X+ actually look really nice in terms of technology wise. Not really a fan of the styling but I'm gonna be spending most of the time looking at the display and not the phone so now I'm excited for the release.

It has an LCD2(same in htc one X) and is being praised for its exquisite display quality. I also like the build quality of htc phone which I find lacking in samsung phones.
