When AMOLED display supplies dried up and HTC was forced to make a decision between keeping their phones out of stock or switching screen technologies, they wisely went with Sony’s SLCD screen to keep production flowing on the HTC Desire and other handsets that once used Samsung’s technology.

As a bonus the video below includes a look at a traditional LCD display on the HTC HD2. So, did HTC make the right call or is SLCD a poor replacement for the original AMOLED? You decide.
