No doubt that since the new, thinner, and lighter PS Vita 2000 was announced you have begun seeing videos comparing the models pop up on the internet. Many of these videos offered a glimpse at what each screen had to offer, but due to various measures usually ended up delivering conflicting results. Luckily for us YouTube user Fanta711 has uploaded what may very well be the most concise and clear evidence to date.

Which display do you like better, the OLED or the LCD?

    Always hard to see from youtube due to the compression but the OLED looks brighter and the LED has a horrible yellow tinge, though pixel density and clarity of picture seem pretty much the same. I love my Vita’s OLED and while the LCD model is a bit cheaper I’m more than happy with the Vita I already have.

    i think this show the difference between oled and slcd beter

      All LCD and OLED displays are built differently; just because those screens are LCD or OLED, doesn’t mean they’ll look like the PSVita’s screens. Especially so, since the specs are different.

      • Yuuki

        but the generell specs are the same, oled better collors, lcd better reability.

        • Kyle Wakeling

          Yeah, but they still don’t represent an actual comparison; the screens are totally different in resolution, size and quality. That’s like comparing laptops to desktops and saying they should all be the same type of comparison ’cause they’re both PCs – they’re in different classes.

    I’m sure Sony’s putting a great (and much more reliable) display on the Vita 2000–but there is simply no way an LCD matched the black and contrast levels of an OLED. Not possible.

    That being said…it probably should have launched with a high-end LCD all along. Would have let Sony launch with a lower price point and eliminated the burn-in problem from ever coming up.

    I love my oled vita, but something I’ve seen on both vita’s I’ve owned (sold my launch 3g vita when I got the black friday ac vita bundle) is that there are dark spots that only show up during certain loading screens. They’re not dead spots, but they’re almost like black smudges. The new LCD will most likely not suffer from this.

    • K1cks

      And just to clarify, these aren’t burn-in spots as they both exhibited the issue when I first used them.

    • Yuuki

      its normal with amoleds, sadly.

    • Lester Paredes

      Yeah, that’s normal to OLED screens. It doesn’t affect anything, it’s just it decides to display certain spots darker/lighter than others.

    Both screens look nice to me in the video. The OLED seems to display better realistic colors, where it seemed that the LCD screen displayed the Rayman colors better. either way, both screens are very nice and either would be great. Still gonna keep my current Vita. Won’t change it until the vita comes with 10 or 15 gigs of internal memory. I doubt that will be happening any time soon. Or at all.
