A few thousand pages back someone highly recommended a brand of screen protector. Does anyone remember what it was? I thought I made note of it, but of course, now I can't find it. He said he would come back and give us a further review, but I don't recall seeing it.

Although at HD resolutions, any such differences should be fairly minor.

All else equal, I'd have to honestly say I'd prefer the display tech on the Rezound. Not even the tiniest decision maker, by any means. But if I did have my choice......I would most likely pick LCD.
I'm on the fence in regards to more vibrant displays -- it's a huge problem for watching movies. Theres an article I can't seem to find again which shows how Inception was SUPPOSED to look and did look in theaters vs how most HD TVs make it look. It's awful what overly vivid screens do to most movies. Everything looks like Transformers - in a bad way. If the Razr had a form factor I liked, was vanilla and ICS, there would be no contest. I would take the more accurate colors hands down... but then again, I do make movies for a living so I'm picky!


Edit: Oh but I meant to say I do like it being extra vivid for games and general phone use.

Oddly I agree with most of your observations but come to a different conclusion. In theory Rezound should be way sharper, but it's hard for me to believe that many people will be able to perceive any difference. Same w/banding.

I think I'll probably prefer the GNex' display because of contrast and saturation, but still expect to be very happy w/Rez' LCD.

Oh those look great! I might pick up a case too because I like purple and I find good colors are difficult to come by for more geeky phones than not

+1

I've owned plenty of smartphones in my short life, even since before they were called "smartphones". The screen improved on each new model I got. Every single one was LCD.

I then got the Samsung Vibrant with the S-AMOLED screen. It blew me away. Blacks are true black, meaning the pixels aren't even on/use no energy when displaying black. Colors pop. Even comparing the iPhone 4 Retina display with my dinky 800x480 res screen, I preferred the Galaxy S by leaps and bounds, even when I factored in that it was pentile. And now it's available in 720p?! Amazing.

PenTile isn't even a factor anymore at this high of resolution. No reviews I have read on the GNex mentioned anything bad about the display. None even mentioned PenTile, except if it was to say that while the screen is PenTile, the resolution is so high that you can't even tell anymore. And there were a few reviews that favored the GNex screen over the ReZound.

While it will mostly come down to personal choice, my choice is the AMOLED.

"ICS is an awesome, much needed facelift, but then again it's not....the camera quality could be better, but it still is among the best...".

Kent German, one of the reviewers, is one of the biggest Apple cheerleaders on the site. Look up his blogs. When the Hong Kong event was postponed, he wrote a long rant saying how Samsung and Google is hiding something from us, he speculated that the phone had big problems and that Google/Samsung couldn't possibly be respectful enough to postpone the event due to the passing of Steve Jobs. It was a pathetic blog that was just one man's opinion with 0 facts to back it up, but presented in a way where it was a fact piece and not an opinion piece.

CNET will never claim another phone to be better than the latest iPhone, even if it is clearly better. On Android device reviews, they focus a lot of energy and writing on the negative aspects, often blowing up small issues and exaggerating them to the point where they make the phone seem awful, and then just lightly touch on what the phone does right. The result is mostly negative reviews.

I admit, I still go to CNET sometimes, and I do enjoy their Android podcast because the hosts are awesome, albeit they are a bit slower to churn out news and don't always mention the latest. But anything they say should be taken with a grain of salt as their journalistic integrity in the tech world has been compromised over the last few years.
It is good to take the people behind the reviews into account. You are exactly right, and to add to the eyefone lovers, there are several others in the mobile tech dept that love their eyephones. Even if they do have to review android as well, the personal preference goes to fruit phone.

Silly question, but trying to pass the time and learn something at the same time. Currently, if I'm browsing or using this app on my TB, I can hit menu then refresh. How can that be done with ICS if there is no menu button? You won't have to scroll to the address bar will you?

BTW, at 6:28 in Jon's unboxing he mentions that the on-screen buttons provide haptic feedback. Can someone confirm this? I've never heard any mention of that.

On legacy apps, three vertically stacked dots will appear next to the recent apps button, and it acts as a "Menu" button.

Ahhh, okay. I vaguely remember reading something about that business. Now it's coming back to me. I like it. Thanks.

I got lucky and ordered a couple for my upcoming sgn from skinomi a couple days ago when they were only $3. I posted a link for it then. I have it on my touch pad and now like it more than my previous zagg's!

They are also supposed to be lifetime, but I figured for $3 why not have a spare. I like them better than zagg because zagg has an unnatural feeling, show fingerprints more, and has more of a reflection to it. They are both great screen protectors in my opinion though.

Well... yeah. I'm looking forward to trying Beats but not keeping it enabled. I listen to a lot of electronic music, but don't like the muddy overbassified effect.

It sounds good on movies for sound FX too.

My only knock against Steinheil is that they are the sticky kind of protectors. I usually end up blowing one of the 2 they give you just trying to get everything lined up

I have a lot easier time getting Phantomskinz or Invisible shield on straight/lined up well with the wet install and have had awesome luck with them.

I personally actually like the tackyness of Invisible shields, but if you don't: Phantom Skinz have the wet install method and are smooth like the Steinheil.

I liked using Ghost Armor but the scratches and gouges wouldn't really go away. It got to the point where my Droid screen looked like crap. I finally took it off and never had any problems whatsoever.

I don't think I'll be going with a screen protector this time around.

Yeah it was confirmed by one of the UK posters somewhere in this jumble of a thread.

How can all of this info be leaking on another VZW phone release when we don't even have confirmed specs on the Gnex yet????
