Transcript:5 Best Cell Phone Displays

Hi, I'm Nick Jaynes for About.com, and these are the five best cell phone displays. It wasn't too long ago that the first color cell phone screen came out and created quite a stir. Now, a cell phone without a color display is simply laughable. In a short amount of time, we've seen cell phone display technology reach so far as HD and 3D. But which ones are best? Here are the top five best cell phone displays.

Best Cell Phone Displays: Apple iPhone 3GS

Priced at $99 now, the iPhone 3GS is not the latest and greatest iPhone. But, while it may not have all the features found on the Apple iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS remains one of the best smartphones on the market, hands down. Plus, it doesn't come with those pesky antenna problems that have plagued the iPhone 4 since its launch. And, with its price lowered to $99, the iPhone 3GS is one of the more affordable smartphones, too.

Best Cell Phone Displays: Samsung Galaxy S II

The Galaxy S II is a super-slim, super-slick Android smartphone. It packs in just about all of the advanced features you could need, including: a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, dual-core processing power, version 2.3 of the Android OS, an 8-megapixel camera, and full HD video recording. And that's not all: it also offers the ability to wirelessly link with your TV, laptop, or printer. It doesn't come cheap, though, as the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II is one of the pricier smartphones around.

Best Cell Phone Displays: HTC EVO 3D

3D technology isn't just for TVs and movie screens anymore: it's now made its way to cell phones, too. Meet the HTC EVO 3D, a smartphone that allows you to capture and record 3D images and video, and view 3D content on its screen, all without those annoying 3D glasses.

Best Cell Phone Displays: HTC Thunderbolt

HTC's Thunderbolt was the first 4G phone to run on Verizon's 4G LTE network. But 4G support is not the only impressive feature that the Thunderbolt offers. It also packs in version 2.2 of the Android OS, a 4.3-inch touch screen, an 8-megapixel camera, a 720p camcorder, and a 1-GHz SnapDragon processor.

Best Cell Phone Displays: Apple iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 is not without its problems -- yes, we've heard about those pesky antenna issues. But it remains one of the best smartphones around, thanks to its gorgeous display, elegant design, and incredible ease of use. And it's even better now that you have a choice of carriers.

As you can see, there are many cell phones on the market with great displays. To find which is best for you, go check out your local cell phone retailer and spend some time playing around before you make your final decision. Thanks for watching.
