I was roaming the shops during lunch break the other day and thought I’d do a size comparison of the Nokia N8 with some of the current handsets available in the UK.

I was so shocked to see the N900 still on sale that I didn’t get a comparison photo.

Videos: Nokia N8 versus Samsung Wave (and iPhone 4)

Here’s another side by side split screen comparison between the Nokia N8 and this time the Samsung Wave. This is from gsmarena07

The wave, despite supposedly recording at 30FPS looks jerkier and less fluid in movement than what’s labelled as the N8. (Noticeable in the car portion)

Next – iPhone 4. I don’t understand why the iPhone 4 video is wobbling. Is the N8’s video stabilization that effective? (On early tests I’ve tried it’s surprisingly steady.)

TestMobile compares the Nokia N8’s AMOLED with the Samsung Galaxy S’ eye melting Super AMOLED. Though of course the camera could increase/decrease the differences (adjusting to brightness of one screen, affecting look of another), disregarding this, in the photo below you can see that the deep blacks and brighter whites in the Super AMOLED display.  I’ve seen both, but only individually so I can’t comment on comparisons, but both look fantastic.

Not to fear though as the N8’s AMOLED is not just a step above regular TFT LCD displays (see 5800 comparison) but is apparently head and shoulders above some current AMOLED displays (Eldar has mentioned N8’s display is superior to the Nexus one.) And apparently Samsung’s Super AMOLED will be exclusive to their own devices for a while – I don’t recall where I read that though, so perhaps unless you want a Samsung, we’ll all have to settle for great AMOLEDs

In AMOLED vs TFT LCD, AMOLED displays are brighter, have higher contrast, richer more vibrant colours and consume less energy.

In AMOLED displays, each pixel controls its own brightness, as opposed to having a unified backlight in TFT, so blacks can be well, blacker and whites can be whiter and the colours are richer and more vibrant. Plus by not needing a backlight, they can utilise less power.

Here’s the HTC Google Nexus One AMOLED vs Super AMOLED on the Wave (on top) VIA Mobile-Review.

The differences are much more obvious here, the Samsung is bursting with brilliance.

Comparison shot between the Nokia displays by All About Symbian. Apparently N8’s AMOLED is much better at outdoor visibility than N86/N85 which suffered from vampiric screens.

Nokia N8 and Samsung Wave playing Asphalt 5

Following yesterday’s Nokia X5 gallery by cssinsight on flickr, here’s another bunch of photos of the Nokia X2, C1 and the Nokia N8 next to the Samsung Bada powered Wave.

The C1 below is that dual SIM Nokia phone that has a sweeping, tapered design reminiscent to that of the Nokia N8.

The Nokia X2 is part of that music/youth/entertainment segment, packing a 5MP camera, LED flash and dedicated music buttons..
