HTC EVO Screen Scratch Test: Next Is iPhone 4
How many scratches does your expensive handset’s screen has? Countless- well then you need to know this! A member of Android Forums, put HTC Evo 4G’s screen to a tough Scratch Test, having it do battle with things like screws, pennies, and a razor blade- and you know what- Evo successfully Survived the Test!
It’s usually a lot more enjoyable to watch others put expensive items through torment tests instead of doing it to stuff you threw down your own hard earned cash for. So you might be thinking that why this person did actually risked his phone? Actually a member of Android Forums was unlucky to take delivery of a defective device, so prior to it got shipped back to Sprint he decided to put the screen to the test, to see if having the phone knocking around in your pocket would do any serious damage.
Talking about the screen, it would be interesting to see a similar scratch test conducted on the iPhone 4. The much covered iPhone 4’s Retina Display isn’t just the quadruple pixel density over the iPhone 3Gs, but Apple’s astonishing new process that completely eliminates empty space between the LCD and touchscreen, resulting in a display that looks like the pixels have been painted directly on the glass. Now comparing it to the HTC Evo’s screen, the HTC Evo 4G is throwing 38% less pixels at the display than Apple, but even so: look at how those app icons are basically throbbing through the iPhone’s glass, while the Evo 4G’s display looks like it has been submerged in a thin layer of dirty water. You see the same effect when you compare it to the iPhone 3GS too, according to Engadget.
But whatever, I think the scratch test has already proved the efficiency of Evo. So are you thinking of trying the same test with your Evo?
