OLED vs. LCD model

#1Heartlz555Posted 8/17/2014 8:26:12 PM
Since the Vita is out of stock in stores, I have the option of buying either model brand new. I am leaning towards the older model, but I fear that the screen will get those black lines that are common with OLED screens. I like the newer one, but I'm not a fan of USB chargers. I had an issue with my old phone where it couldn't charge anymore because it became too loose. Which model should I get and why?

OLED is actually better...tried it out once in direct sun and i could still see the screen. also, it seem more brighter, but the downfall is the battery drain...

All i can say is get the oled if you can srs the lcd all of the colors look washed out.

For screen, get old model, for everything else, get the slim.

The screen is the main deal of the Vita. OLED is too good.

OLED is beautiful, but it was an easy choice to sell it in favor of all the Slim's improvements.

Can't go wrong either way, really.

OLED is horrible

I'm glad Sony decided to upgrade

unfortunately some of their more desperate fans have a hard time understanding this
