iPhone 4 vs Nokia E7: Display Specs and Comparison (Retina vs CBD)

By Jamie Pert - Sep 14, 2010

Earlier today we spoke about the Nokia E7 and its Clear Black Display, these Clear Black Displays seem to be Nokia’s answer to Apple’s Retina displays, therefore we thought we would see how they compare.

The E7’s display has a 4-inch diagonal and features a resolution of 640 x 360, the iPhone 4 has a 3.5-inch diagonal and a resolution of 960 x 640, in terms of pixels per inch the iPhone 4’s retina display is far superior, however how do they compare in terms of clarity etc?

According to Engadget the E7’s CBD Is more vibrant and brighter than the iPhone 4, however color saturation was not great, you can see the devices side-by-side below.

Without having both devices in your hand it is impossible to tell the difference, however we are assured that the E7’s AMOLED display is on par with the Samsung Galaxy S, this is a huge compliment.

For me the most important thing is good clarity in outdoor conditions, at the moment we have not seen the E7 in sunlight, therefore we will have to hold our judgement, at least we can see that the CBD display is holding its own against the iPhone 4.
