Default is the P3's screen as nice as the Cowon S9 or the iPod Touch?

I'm 90% sure that I'm buying the Samsung P3.

I currently have a 64GB iPod Touch. No, it doesn't have very good screen
quality and the audio quality is just "acceptable".... but I do use it for
other functions.

I've never seen the Samsung P3 or the Cowon S9 in person. Judging by
all the threads here, I assume both have better screens than the iPod
Touch. (OLED vs LCD)

However... .which one has the "better" OLED screen for watching videos
or viewing photos. The P3 or the S9?


Like I said, all I really want is a PMP with a really really good screen....

Thanks in advance for all replies!

The P3 has an LCD screen whereas the Cowon S9's is AMOLED and bigger - 3.5" to 3".

So the Cowon's is better.

Thanks for pointing that out to me...

The Samsung M1 has an OLED screen, so does the Sony X.

But P3's screen definition is better than the Cowon's one.
And the difference is noticeable!

Well i'm on my phone right now so I can't check whether i'm right but i'm pretty sure the s9's screen is 3.3''. Also the p3 screen is better, in terms of quality, than the iPod touch's- however, the iPod touch's is bigger and more responsive.

Yeah, you're right - the P3s screen is clearer than the iPod touch.

My mate has a Cowon S9 and it has a bigger and clearer screen than my P3.

However it's a bit plasticky compared to the P3.

I would forget the ipod touch as the same mate also got an ipod touch for his Christmas (long story) which he says was absolutely rubbish compared to the P3 and S9. Despite having a bigger screen than both the P3 and S9 it wasn't as nice a picture and the sound quality he said was awful compared to his S9.

After seeing both in person I think the S9 is better. I don't regret getting the P3 though as it was much cheaper at the time and I couldn't imagine my daily commute without it now.

AMOLED is better than LCD.
I don't know if the iTouch has haptic touch but the p3 has it and i like it!
