    'better' is relative. I own both, I can tell that the slim colours are more original, and exactly like it was displayed on PSP (same LCD screen). OLED looks more vibrant, but because of this it gets hard to read some text on the XMB when there are bright backgrounds. (Red, Orange especially).
    It would be best if you could use both in real life and compare. Also, the slim build is flimsy and I've had analog stick problems with both Slim's I've used after just a couple of months. The OLED feels better build, but the front seems bit delicate because it's all glass. Use a screen guard or tempered glass.

    There's a lot of improvement on slim :

    Easier to replace battery than gen 1

    The button feel better when clicked

    It use standard usb cable , no hassle if yours gone

    The size more slimmer and the matte case is attractive ( subjective)

    Better battery life for 6 hours of battery life

    More cooler 32nm instead of 45nm, the slim will stay cool when overclocked

    Due to 32nm the system speed is little faster for 0.2 second vs fat but

    Sparepart for FAT already stopped production but there's still china made sparepart, actually i think they also stopped making for slim

    Gen1/Phat/OLED one has more internal space too (2.5GB) then Slim one (I think 1.2GB, give or take)

    Yeah, but you can't use both internal storage AND external cards. It sucks ass.

    I ended up with a Gen 1 since it had 3.60 already. Hacked and playing Chaos Rings II on it currently. It actually looks better than the Android version.
