if its the new screen the Samsung note 2 has then I'm not impressed. It produces a bluish tone when looking from an angle when the screen has a white image. And its not that bright. So much in fact, the guys on xda forums made a hack to bring it up a notch when its rooted. Its hard to see in a bright and sunny day. I compared it with my alpha unit and the alpha has the better screen. I believe the biggest advantage for the new led screen is for battery savings.

Super AMLOED? lol
I think you meant AMOLED, and no it's not and I'm glad. AMOLED displays are to inconsistent in my experience. Sometimes they are good other times they aren't. Look at Samsung's own devices for proof of that. My Galaxy S3 had a great display. My Note 2's display was only so-so. Colors looked decent, but it wasn't overly impressive. Then there was my Galaxy Nexus, which also had a Super AMOLED display. Mine reproduced whites as yellow, while a friend of mine had a Galaxy Nexus that made whites look blueish. Both of our Galaxy Nexus displays suffered from artifacting and eventually, permanent screen burn in. When compared side by side, there was a noticeable difference in the quality of our displays. And that's pretty common for AMOLED. You never know what you will get with Super AMOLED. Its a nice buzz word and people that don't know any better think it means something good automatically, but that isn't always the case.
LCD might be the older technology, but in my experience it offers much better consistency. I have a Optimus G and a Nexus 4 in front of me right now. Both use the same in plane switching liquid crystal display, both look great and both look identical when set at the same brightness level.

I'm so glad that they are going with LCD for L-Series. I don't understand the point in AMOLED for the N-Series but it won't affect me as I'm not interested in physical keyboards.
I decided never to buy a device with AMOLED ever again since my 4-month old Samsung Omnia 7 developed fairly noticeable burn-in.

It really depends on the AMOLED display itself. Nokia for example uses very nice AMOLED solutions, especially with their "ClearBlack" filter applied: Great colors, blacks as deep as it can get, good sunlight visibility. No burn-in (at least my Nokia E7 didn't get any after 18 months of use) or blue-ish colors either.
IMO a company can for sure do more things wrong with an AMOLED display than you can do with a tradtional LCD display, however a decent AMOLED is a very, very nice thing to have.
