    It is possible that AMOLEDs or Super AMOLEDs displays could be too bright for our eyes when performing at maximum capacity?

    Most modern LEDs have been there for many years. I am not aware of amoLEDs, but the probability is very high the answer is yes.

    Kind of doubtful that a cell phone display could be harmful, but super-bright LEDs can permanently damage vision if stared at for a period of time; how long depends on how bright the light is.

    I've found some vehicle taillights are uncomfortably bright, and avoid staring at them - or any other bright light source.

    If driven at max power when the surroundings are dark, they are more "intense" than a CRT or Plasma display.

    The nice part about them is you can easily see the notebook screen even when in sunlight without issues.

    If the display is at that same brightness indoors, it does bother eyes, nearly all displays have some form of dimming built in.
