    TB screen quality explained?

    I had a Droid X before I got the Thunderbolt and I liked the quality of the DX screen- to me it looked like I was watching a nice flat panel on display at best buy just scaled down....

    I recently got the Thunderbolt and I love it but I'm a little turned off by the quality of the same movies playing on the TB screen- looks like movie theater quality but scaled down....

    Is it just me or is the screen on the DX better than the TB? I have searched online and can't find anyone saying anything definitive about the TB screen v.s. DX screen as far as specifics (other than 4.3'' display and TB is TFT)...is the TB using the best screen technology available for 4.3'' size?

    I like the screen. However, outdoors in semi-bright daylight the phone becomes useless, even at autobrightness which pumps it to the max. Rather remarkable, as if nobody tested the phone outdoors.

    my only complaint is as stated above, it can be difficult to view outside in the sun. I already knew about this before buying the phone though. Other than that, I personally think the screen quality is 10X better than the X. I loved the X when I got it but after having my TB, I cant believe how much more vibrant and deep the colors are on the TB. I had the X on the day it came out, got the TB 3 weeks ago and haven't ONCE looked back wishing I had the X back.

    This phone has worse resolution but somehow better screen quality.

    The only complaint I have is mine has leak. So my screen will never be as bright as it should be.

    The only drawback from htc devices is the build quality. Motorola devices are more sturdy, feel better. This phone as much as I love it, feels a lot cheaper than my dx did.

    Had a DroidX before the TB and prior to that a Nexus One on ATT. Going from the N1 to the DroidX, I was very disappointed in the screen. The AMOLED N1 screen was amazing...totally useless in sunlight, but gorgeous otherwise. By comparison the DroidX looked muddy and dull. I adjusted to it, however and after a few weeks, it didn't bother me. I think the TB screen looks better than the Droid. Not as good as the N1, but I'm adjusting again. Own any phone for a short time and it will look fine.

    No way... The thunderbolt has a much better screen than the Droid X imo. You cant notice a difference in the resolution unless you put your face 3 inches from the screen. And the colors are much more vibrant than the X

    I am considering the DX2, but the question is when will it come out. I have the TB but dual core, equal memory, very likely MORE internal storage like the original DX and the 540x960 screen would be nicer as well.

    Couldn't agree more. I can have it on a mildly sunny day and I have to hold it at weird angles to read the screen, but in bed, I can have brightness set to "0" and it is still plenty bright.

    Every htc phone I've seen in sunlight is basically useless. I don't really care about resolution and colors, if I cant see the darned thing.
