    So even IF the screen wasn't as advertised (It is. I'm too lazy to link to the post I read, but it uses some kind of different way to process the image making it seem the lower res. Like i said, too lazy)

    Is there anyone here that would have had 2nd thoughts about their n1? I mean is it REALLY a just horrifying thing that the screen res is better than most phones on the market still?

    EDIT: Title fail. I meant to change it but I got all spaced out. If an admin wants they can change it to...whatever makes sense. Some thing like "Right...is the so called "low Res" Screen a big deal to anyone".... or be creative ;)

    I'm thinking about getting an HTC Incredible instead, but not just because of any "resolution" issues, but a combination of issues. Now only if we knew more about the HTC Incredible and whether it exhibits any of the same issues as the Nexus One it would make whether getting an HTC Incredible a done deal or whether to pick up the first one out on the market.

    Both phones are made by HTC and if the Incredible also utilizes AMOLED technology, which most likely it does, then it'll have the same "problem" that isn't a problem at all but a matter of current font tech not catching up.

    As far as I can tell from casual forum cruising, most of the issues offered up as show stoppers come from people who do not own the phone. In many cases they have not even held it. Its just a phone. Best of breed for now, but just a tool (more like a laptop replacement actually). Wait 6 months and there will be a "better" phone. I chose not to wait.

    That said this phone is crazy cool. :D

    I think that story broke on BGR. He is a certified iPhone fan boy. Anything that even remotely challenges the iPhone he goes on the offensive against.

    It's not a problem, it just works differently to the way people would normally think.

    It's only a problem to all the sheep who read it as such and then decide in their own minds that something is wrong or they've been cheated in some way.

    I think we can all agree that it doesn't matter where the story "broke" so as long as it is a fact.
    You mean informed customers who do their research before picking up a ~$500 phone? Right... "sheep."

    I think we can all agree that this story is being spun to sound like something underhanded is going on when it isn't. The screen on the N1 looks fantastic.

    Nope, it's fine. If people want to count pixels all different ways and get themselves worked up over it, that's fine. But I think the screen looks great.

    I read a few people yesterday that were OUTRAGED BY SUCH TERRIBLE PICTURE QUALITY!. The only phone i know with better off the top of my head is the HD2 maybe? (I am trying to pick one up off of craiglist to play with. It's the only nice winmo phone and I'd love to play with it a little bit :p)

    That being said he really is a ifanboy. I cannot wait until android 3.0 drops. By then the gaming market will probably be better after the apps on SD are standard and the community has grown ;)

    The only thing that I can say really bothers me bout the phone is the way they advertise the video recorder at 720p when its not. I can see a lot of people getting taken in by that... the actual pixel count is legit but its not a deal breaker either.

    @mudrock1000.... the screen on the HD2 is not better than the nexus ones's screen, belive me.. my wife has a HD2 and i have a nexus one... the N1's screen is way more vivid and bright... the only good thing about the HD2's screen is the size:p
