HTC’s AMOLED Legend display botching grayscale?

HTC’s AMOLED Legend display botching grayscale?

AMOLED screens have once again come in for attention over concerns regarding image quality, as Tweakers took two HTC Legends into the lab to demonstrate the issues they have displaying grayscale correctly.  The Legend - shown here snuggling with an Apple iPod touch and an HTC Hero - apparently proved unable to show regular grayscale, instead offering up a range of muted pinks, grays, greens and browns.

AT&T-spec HTC Legend spotted crossing the FCC

AT&T-spec HTC Legend spotted crossing the FCC

We made no disguise of our lust for the shiny, MacBook-esque loveliness of the HTC Legend when we reviewed it back in March, and so the idea of it crossing over from Europe to the US and Canada tickles us in the very best of places.  The newly published FCC listing may not mention the Legend by name, but some codename and label sleuthing certainly seems to imply that it refers to an HTC Legend with AT&T-friendly 850/1900 WCDMA support.

HTC Legend review

HTC Legend review

We did little to disguise how impressed we were with the HTC Hero when we reviewed it all the way back in July 2009.

HTC Legend: I need a Hero

HTC Legend: I need a Hero

You could well argue that the HTC Hero was the Android smartphone of 2009. While Motorola's DROID brought with it a larger display, newer version of the OS and arguably more functional hardware keyboard, HTC led the pack months in advance. Multitouch-capable, distinctly designed and outfitted with a genuinely compelling UI in the shape of HTC Sense, the Hero fast became the poster-child of Android. Now, the company are hoping to follow that success with the HTC Legend, a slick Hero update with a tactile unibody aluminum shell. Is it a worthy sequel or has the HTC Desire stolen the Legend's flagship thunder; more importantly, is it sufficiently different from the smartphone it replaces?
