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

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.

If you wanna pay for the sleek design, display and glass technology you should by an iphone4. If you wanna pay for the mobile technology then you should buy an E7.

iPhone4 or E7 or Galaxy S ?? I believe it solely depend on one's personal preference. However, if one has to consider Sleek Look, Cool Features, Great Usability and most important of all Smooth and Precision Touch Experience they should consider purchasing an iPhone4. This black glass slab is an amazing machine. 😀

Another thing….besides the fact that the CBD is brighter and more vibrant than the Retina, the Retina has a slight blue hue to the screen which is not highly desirable.

I still prefer Physical keyboard. I prefer E7 and, iphone is more restricted to apple. Even after paying hundreds of pounds we have to follow what jobs says (how to hold a phone) and the camera pixels matter so E7 wins in that way. File transfer via Bluetooth is still not available for iphone which again a drawback. I do agree apple apps store is huge but practically how many unique apps are there in store, even all are unique, are we going to use all of them. And i feel OVI store has all required apps to use phone… Read more »
