    Yes side by side you'll notice a different, black on an AMOLED is black, black on a LCD shows a little bit of light bleed and appears more grey-black than black. Desires from 3 months ago (June-Julyish) were AMOLED but they ran out of AMOLED supplies so they produced SLCD ones.

    There are differences between the 2 but nothing glaringly so

    less pink on slcd but still there
    other than that for real world use i cant see it being an issue, also the slcd seems more visible in the sun (my mate has an amoled one)

    If you still have the retail box it came in, read the features section or on the description on the back, if it doesn't say AMOLED anywhere then you most likely have SLCD.
