    I think we worry way too much about the little things on here. The average consumer probably won't notice or won't care. I've watched people at the Verizon store by my look at the D3 and X2. They didn't have any questions about the display or even noticed anything wrong. The rep just say it was a high resolution screen, the X2 had a larger one without a keyboard, and the D3 was smaller without the keyboard. Those were his selling points.

    I agree the average consumer will not pay attention to the screen that much but alas, I'm not the average consumer, I use my phone a lot and its just something I can't get past. The camera also took forever to snap a picture and wifi was acting up on mine. Other than that I liked it. I'm a fan of the droid 3 but not enough to own one. Sorry, thats how I see it.

    I disagree.

    If the average consumer didn't care about screen quality, then stores wouldn't crank up saturation/brightness settings on flat screens to grab their attention. The screen is the window into what a device can do.

    As long as they keep the consumer ignorant, the greater chance they'll be unhappy with their device and I think that's a moral failure.

    Just because it's a practice embraced by a company, doesn't mean it's right.

    I wouldn't compare phone shopping to TV shopping, though. When looking for a TV, picture quality is probably the most important deciding factor because it is solely a viewing device. There are so many more deciding factors when shopping for a cell phone.

    If you can name one thing that is used more than the screen on your phone, I'll agree with you.

    Since the iphone came out I think the game HAS changed for phones. I look for a good screen now that we have netflix and movies and great games for our phones.

    I look back at my previous phones and see that the screens were crap compared to smartphones but that was just what they were, a phone. Our smartphones are so much more now and I won't accept the likes of moto's pentile screen anymore.

    So it gets better battery life and it's a brighter screen, that doesn't overcome what I see wrong with it. My eyes do not deceive me.

    I actually talk on the phone more than I use the screen. So call quality, reception and speaker quality are all important to me. Besides, a screen is only as good as the hardware and software that run it. It also doesn't matter how sharp your screen is if your battery is dead and can't turn it on! I think screen quality is important, but it is not THE deciding factor in a phone like it could be in a TV.
