Everything is great, except for the most important part......the screen!,
This review is from: Sony PS Vita [New Slim 2014 version] (PlayStation Vita) (Console)
I bought mine from japan as I don't like the black one. I got the white/lime green version. I have to say, it looks gorgeous until you turn it on.
I also have the original version, but wanted an ''upgrade''.
After a full charge, I turned it on and was immediately disappointed by the lack of color the screen produced.
I do feel that the OLED screen on the original is a bit over saturated. But the new screen is the complete opposite and nothing pops.
My psp go produces much better colors and deeper blacks. So, it's not like lcd can't compete with oled, because it can when done right.
I just think sony cut back a bit too much on the display and are charging too much for it.
Apart from the screen though, it feels much better in the hand and I think the buttons are better.
If this is your first vita, you will no doubt be happy with it. However if you already own the original, then you will notice a big difference in the screen.
I still think the screen lacks color and now my buttons are making horrible creaky noises, just as my old one did.
Sony really make some shoddy products these days.
