    I have noticed these problems with the scrolling and reading on the screen. The sharper text and resolution is nice, but not sure why it was necessary to sacrifice the smoothness of scrolling.

    From what I've read, the pentile display is cheaper for the manufacturer... I read one article that said it's better on the battery as well, but only one article...

    It's pentile, and I'm peeved as a pink pony. Deal breaker for me. Hate the phone already and can't wait to get rid of it.

    I wont know until I see one in person, but some ppl said the higher res, qHD offsets the Pentile effect somewhat. Some with older phones that had the older Amoled screens said it isnt as bad as those older phones. I also know there were so many ppl that didnt see it or care that got Inc and GS1 phones last year.

    Seeing as Moto is sticking with these qHD screens for the near future, this is the one time I might have to overlook this con....I hate this...lol. I was a big fan of LCD screens compared to Amoled ones last year too...I know for my next phone I will have to see it in person before buying. I basically got the DX1 site unseen. And it worked out in that case for me, but might not from now on.

    It's literally the first thing I noticed as soon as I powered on the device. I went "oh god, what's wrong with the battery icon?" then immediately noticed the text on the 2 widgets I use on my main homescreen were heavily artifacted as soon as I added them (one uses orange text and the other uses green). The only way to not see the artifacting is to hold the phone as far as I can with my arm outstretched, which looks pretty silly. I normally view my phone at about 10-12".

    Why so close?

    I dont think 10-12" is that close. I cant really measure but I might use my phone at about the same distance. Especially in the bathroom...lol
