Droid X1:The only place you can still dramatically tell that this is PenTile is either by looking at regions that are solid green, or red. At green in particular, you can see a bit of that grain from the subpixel structure - green is most visible because visual acuity peaks in the green. Red is also sometimes also shows a bit of that telltale grain, but nothing too dramatic. Human visual acuity isn’t very good for blue, so that looks pretty homogeneous.
See before...EVERYONE was focusing on the green battery symbol, and that one pic in the Droid X2 thread had a green background with text on it. But look at the numbers, look at the wifi symbol, both of the 'c', etc. And also remember these pics are waaay larger than how you will see it on your phone. You may notice it, you may not.
Like in the Amoled vs. LCD debates...it will be a matter of preference. If you're not sure, just look at in stores before you buy it. Or get it sight unseen. I can guarantee you will know if you like it or not within an hour of messing around with your phone. If you dont like it, take it back.
Off topic...I tried to tell someone on another forum battery life is a staple of Motorola phones right now. I dont know what Motorola does and some other manufactures dont, but for battery life and reception....Motorola will remain favorite of mine.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
They also illustrated how much brighter the screen is while still conserving battery power, which shows up well outdoors in the sunlight. Since I do a lot of golfing and keep score on my phone, this is important to me. If the Bionic is this form of Pentile (RGBW), I can be happy with it. If it was Super-LCD, even better!
I highly advise anyone considering the bionic to look at it in store first. The screen on my x2 was very bright, great color and resolution, text was very clear, but it was very pixelated.
I noticed it during every day use on many colors, not just the battery icon. Take a look at the twitter icon, or music icon on an x2. It looks awful. Watch netflix or youtube side by side with a different phone. The x2 just looks fuzzy and not as nice

I'll have to see the screen to make a judgement. The technology of it doesn't matter to me... what counts is what it actually looks like. Very simple... if I like it I'll buy it, if I don't I won't.
I planned to go to a VZW store yesterday and check out the DX2 screen for a bit of reference (even if the Bionic's screen may differ). Unfortunately, it started to storm and the hard top for my Jeep is in another zipcode... so I had to tarp it and got stranded home.
The screen IS important to me. I am a photography enthusiast, and I want the screen to be able to display the photos with as much accuracy as possible. My D1 is great for that.
Too bad the Bionic doesn't have the retina display like the iPhone. That is the only thing that I envy about that phone. The display is absolutely beautiful.

...but seriously, I'm just kidding.
I have a thunderbolt and my wife had an X2.
The screen on the X2 looks HORRIBLE compared to both the bolt and the charge.
Hell, even our old D1's screens looked nicer than the X2.
She ended up returning the X2 in the 14 day window and getting a thunderbolt.
Hopefully the bionic's screen looks better, because it's a shame for an awesome phone like the X2 to look so horrible.
