    Question Thoughts on PenTile qHD display please

    I am getting a new phone, and leaning toward the M. My biggest question at this point is the PenTile qHD display. To those who either own or have played with an M, is there any visible negatives to the display? I've read a bit of info on the PenTile display and it's negatives, but I'm also coming from a DINC 2, so a GameBoy would be an upgrade...haha. Also, I'm realistic and not expecting a 720p type display, but just want a decent upgrade over my current phone. I appreciate any thoughts from you guys!

    I'm used to it now. Switched over from a Droid 2 Global so I had a few days where I had to get used to it.

    I don't really have any complaints but I also don't have much to compare it to.

    It looks the same as the Bionic. Unless you are hyper critical, you will probably enjoy the display.

    It's a different type of pentile than the bionic has. In addition, the bionics screen is a LCD, where the M is AMOLED.

    Depends on whether you have the eyesight of a tweener and hold the phone 8" from your face or not...LOL! But seriously, at comfortable arm's length you can't see any of the artifacts that some complain about (like looking through a screen door). I've had the RAZR since prior to the new year, and now the RAZR MAXX and it's a non-issue for me. Don't get me wrong...it DOES have that appearance but only at what I consider to be uncomfortable distance from my face, and even then, I'd need reading glasses to see it clearly at that distance.

    I said it looks like the Bionic. Side by side they are almost identical, even looking at the icons with a magnifying glass.

    I apologize for being nit-picky, but that's actually not totally true. Without writing an essay since it's so late, the only real similarities between the Bionic's and Razr M's screens are the fact that they're both pentile and both have a qHD resolution. Beyond that, they have a very different look and feel, and different screen tech altogether.

    The M's screen is, literally, identical to the Razr and Razr Maxx. Moto seems to have tweaked the software a bit to make colors a little brighter and even more saturated, but otherwise they're identical.

    Compared to the Inc 2, you might actually notice more pixelation in areas like the battery and clock, or text on websites. That's the pentile working it's "magic". However, the tradeoffs are worth it, IMHO. The colors are warmer, brighter (sometimes a bit oversaturated), and b/c of the screen (Super AMOLED), the blacks are deep, rich blacks. It's just an overall "warmer" and richer experience than the SLCD on the Inc 2.

    So went ahead and picked up my M today, thanks to all those who conributed opinions. Played some of my fav games, watched some YouTube and went to some web pages, yeah, it's awesome...a significant improvement over the now deceased Dinc2. RIP

    I think the screen looks good.

    Does it have the tint to it that the razrs have at low brightness levels?
