    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.

    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.

    I think it would be cool if you started a thread with the evolution of your Gnex avatars.

    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 :cool:

    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.

    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.
