    I hate DLP TV's. Not only do I see the rainbows but the viewing angles are frustrating as hell to me.

    The pentile screen is great for reading outdoors. Unfortunately I am one of the people who doesn't just see the pixels but is very frustrated by them. It is very evident when looking at photos I've taken, and even more evident when watching video. For instance just to try it out I decided to watch Suckerpunch. Wow, if you guys aren't bothered by pixelation in that then you are truly blessed and I'm happy for you. It ruins it for me. By the way, pixelation isn't exactly the right term. Put it this way: on my OG droid when I look at the dark grey portions of a cloud in a pic I took, it's made of a bunch of gray pixels. On this pentile screen, to make the gray it's a green pixel next to a purple pixel next to a green pixel and so on. I can see it when I hold the phone at arm's length, I'm not sitting there with a magnifying glass looking for problems.

    For example... look at this painting.


    Most people see a nice park setting. I (and a percentage of people) see a bunch of dots of different colors next to each other. For instance the leaves of the tree appear green, but there are yellow, blue, red, black, white, and many other color dots to make it green. It helps me appreciate how much work went into the painting, but for a phone screen it is annoying. That's the best way I can describe what I see.

    BTW, I'm also frustrated with DLP TV's. I see the rainbow effect in them. I wonder if other people who dislike the pentile screen also have problems with DLP's.
    Thank you finally someone explains what they are seeing instead of just I don't like it good explanation and i'm honestly glad it doesn't bother me

    Look at it off angle in the portrait orientation and see the vertical seems, the changing colors and the green pattern. Look at deep blues for posterization. It's not a good screen, but it's not a flaw I cannot live with. Battery on the other hand...

    Yeah if you don't see it, then the Pentile screen is probably great for you. Good contrast, good for the battery, and great in sunlight. That's why this is a love it/hate it screen.

    Here's the best display of the issue at hand.

    A Closer Look at the DROIDX2 and its qHD Display, PenTile at its Not-so-Finest - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    The X2 and the Bionic have the exact same screen. You can clearly see the pixel effect in the video. If you can live with it, great, more power to you. I personally love the Bionic, but the screen is crap and absolutely disappointing.

    If only Samsung would toss a Super AMOLED Plus in a Motorola phone, perfection could be achieved.

    As for if the Pentile is helping battery life,

    "Super AMOLED Plus, first introduced with the Samsung Galaxy S II series smartphones, is a further development where the PenTile RGBG pixel matrix is replaced with a common RGB subpixels arrangement, going from eight to twelve subpixels in a group, resulting in finer details. The screen technology is also brighter, thinner and 18% more energy efficient."

    "If only Samsung would toss a Super AMOLED Plus in a Motorola phone, perfection could be achieved."

    Perfection for you. Not for me!

    This is exactly why this debate might just go on forever. If we could get to the point where we just say "For me....." then it's framed as it should be - totally subjective and the debate fades away.

    If anyone considers SAP perfect - that great, for them.

    I am totally impressed with the Bionic's display - best ever, for me!

    If you can watch the above video about the X2's screen (the same exact screen as the Bionic) and say it's the best screen, then you are just lying to yourself.

    The proof is there, you just refuse to admit the facts.

    My point was, with Motorola's build quality and Samsungs recent Super AMOLED Plus screens, they could give us a phone worthy of spending $300 for.
