    I am with you 100% JaCelica2k. I was impressed overall, but just felt as though I was settling. The screen really did bother me. I tried to talk myself out of it, but I just couldn't shake it. It is however, THE BEST screen I have used in sunlight. Wow!

    The speaker next to the camera on mine didn't work. The noise from the earphone jack also annoyed me. It was the sum of all of that, along with the screen that brought me to the decision to send it back.

    Maybe I'll regret it, maybe I won't? We'll see, I guess. I do miss the speed now that I'm back on my OG.

    ...but seriously, I'm just kidding.

    This is my actual phone I posted in the official Bionic thread last week, albeit the screen isn't set to black, it might give you an idea of why I say I see none of these issues:



    Of course there is going to be some glare on the screen due to the angle it was shot at...

    Yeah I saw this when u posted it, I was misunderstanding the issue people were having. My screen looks fine, I'm one of the happy owners of the DB. HUGE upgrade from the OG for sure. Just waiting on CM7 to drop and I'll be uber happy. When the bootloader gets unlocked I'll be ecstatic.

    Yea no one should be unhappy about the screen, meaning, if yours isn't perfectly clear and crisp .. just exchange it.

    Yes. I double checked and those are the two ways.

    The 3 I've used all have pixelation, I think it's an agreeable fact now that the pentile screen is the reason for the problem. It's just whether you're sensitive enough to see it or deal with an inferior screen for a flagship device.

    A phone's screen is the most important thing to me, so I'll wait until a device is released with a screen comparable to the SGSII, however long that may be.

    ^Dont know if I'd call the screen inferior. The daylight viewing and the battery savings are a plus. Who knows, it may be one of the reasons the phone is so smooth as well.

    I agree that the daylight viewing is a definite plus, something that will be essential in the future. The battery savings I'm not so sure about, as it seems users are pretty split on how well the Bionic's stock battery is doing overall. That's not to say the screen isn't helping, it just doesn't seem to be helping enough to sacrifice a higher quality viewing experience.
