hi,

sorry if this is a stupid question, but does anyone know if in the future it might be possible to mod the screen and use an oled display? that seems like almost the only thing not fully optimal with the current design, but i have no clue as to availability, compatibility etc. if someone knows, i'd be really interested.

thanks

It might be possible if you can find a compatible one, but you will almost definitely have to change the kernel to support the different display.

Secondly, although OLED is better in sunlight and brighter, the lifetime is generally less. Eg. blue organics currently have lifetimes of up to around 14,000 hours (plus of course since the green and red typically have longer lifetimes, it can cause color impurity and color phase shifts). Also the manufacturing processes are still kinda expensive right now.
