Question Original Touch vs. Diamond/Pro Screen

For those with access to both an original Touch and Diamond, please see this thread and reply there or here:

http://www.sprintusers.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=174762

I am convinced the Diamond (and probably Pro) screen are NOT true 2.8" diagonal 4:3 aspect ratio like the original Touch, but I don't have access to both to measure.

Thanks,
Todd/Indy

Well I was thinking the same thing but when i finally got the diamond and compared it to my mogul the screen size seem to be the same to me. I have never owned a touch so I don't know about that comparison. Of course form factor gives it that illusion but its the same size.

Re: Original Touch vs. Diamond/Pro Screen

Gonna make every effort to measure this for myself and post length, width, and diagonal here and at SU. I don't believe the Diamond/Pro are as large screen as other 2.8" PPC's that have come before.

Re: Original Touch vs. Diamond/Pro Screen

ha..you made me curious myself, so i took my mogul out of my desk and snapped some shots
they are the same..they just dont have biga$$ bodies and black borders around the screen, like the 2.8" found on the mogul.

Re: Original Touch vs. Diamond/Pro Screen

Gonna measure 'em in a few minutes. That pic makes the mogul screen look longer to me. I will measure the actual full screen video area length, width, and diagonal.

Exclamation The Answer Is...

There is a difference, though not as much as I thought. I measured the actual video area best I could "by eye". Here's the width x length x diagonal for the Diamond, Touch, and Q9c respectively:

1.67 x 2.22 x 2.75
1.69 x 2.26 x 2.82
1.45 x 1.94 x 2.41

So there is a difference, but not much

From looking at those pictures the mogul does look like it has more actual screen real estate than the diamond but when the mogul is actually turned on, if you look at the screen the pixels don't go all the way to the sides, the top or the bottom in comparison to the diamond. So the measurement is probably the actual amout of space the pixels themselves are occupying. Its like that new law with how tv's are adverstised, it can have a 61" screen but if the actual picture is 60" then it has to be advertised as a 60" tv.
