    Just like I had thought.. I think I'm kinda familiar with mobile company strategies and can pretty much guess what will they bring ;-)

    Nothing wrong with that in my opinion. I prefer IPS displays they are heavier bit I think LCD displays are brighter and have move vivid color.

    I guess they didn't need to get every bit of battery life out of this phone. That big battery must power the phone well. AMOLEDS can certainly look great, but that scrolling blur... :shudder:

    You can get better battery life on AMOLED's with the right conditions, especially back in the days, but LCD's have come a long way in that time. AMOLED's struggle especially bad on white background and black text with using much more battery than LCD's. These days there's really no noticeable difference between the two on batter life. There are bad IPS and AMOLED screens like there are SoC's.

    If Nokia will use IPS, I would imaging it will have most of all to do with them spreading their component distributors, like the "odd" Lumia 920 with its IPS screen was likely about. Samsung controls that AMOLED side.

    Hmm. Wasn't expecting this. I've come to love AMOLED screens. Put a 920 side by side with an ATIV S - I love the display on the ATIV S.

    Still looking forward to the 1520 none the less, but now slightly inclined to wait for a "February 2014 WP8.1 phone" if that happens to be in the pipeline.

    I mean, wasn't it obvious?

    No offense but whenever a photo of a digitizer leaks, that means the digitizer can be removed. Thats impossible for AMOLEDs as the digitizer and OLED panel are bonded together before delivery to final assembly so that means it will use an IPS LCD panel unless this photo was taken before bonding the screen to the digitizer which is very very unlikely. Those areas are top secret too.

    Honestly the only kind of LCD that I'm really waiting for is the IGZO LCD display by Sharp...check out the claimed battery life improvements by using this LCD screen...DAMN!

    Yeah, really waiting to see those live. Was actually just yesterday reading about those screens as I was looking at possible next gen Macbook Air's. :)

    I'll just weigh in and say from an image quality standpoint, I much prefer what an IPS LCD can do. The one thing I like about OLED is that it can selectively light any portion of the screen. Everything else I do not like (over saturation, lifespan color shift, power sapping on white backgrounds whereas on LCD I don't ever need to think about it, power limiting on white backgrounds meaning it will actually dim if there is too much white).

    Doesn't the glance screen rely pretty heavily on amoled so it only has to power a few pixels. How big of a hit to battery life is glance screen on a 920?
