If the Droid didn't rank first, we'd have the same posts there that the N1 owners have. It's all about not being perceived to have bought the wrong thing and the defense we'll mount to protect our decisions. People are bothered by stupid things.
So the best number to have would be 100% too much and colors could be over saturated and blow out and under the colors would be under saturated and would not as accurate to the real world colors. A higher number does not mean that the display is better... and in the article the reviewer means to say that the droid is more color accurate.
