    Screen resolution

    My wife just got one of these and her screen looks pixelated to me especially compared to my droid x. Is it supposed to look this way or is something wrong?

    Nope,.when I was shopping for a phone the facinate looked better than the X imo. The X does have a slightly higher rez if I remember right...

    No it shouldn't. Fascinate has a higher PPI than the X. Does she have one of those stupid anti glare screen protectors on it?

    Everything on it I can clearly see small pixels top notification bar included. They are small so I can tell ifthats just how its supposed to look but next to my x the screen isn't nearly as sharp because of them

    Sounds like your wife might have a defective screen. The Fascinate has SAMOLED and higher PPI (pixel per inch) density. I suggest you just go to Verizon and show them that and they might just switch it out for you.

    Before you return it compare it to a model in the store. The SAMOLED use 2 pixels per cluster instead of 3, like normal LED screens. So it will look more "pixelated" if you look closely. It drove me crazy when I first got the phone, but now I don't notice as much.

    And I think the fascinate and x have the same resolution, but with the smaller screen on the fascinate gives it a higher ppi.

    this is normal. My friend and girlfriends phone both look like that, its cause of the type of screen used. It might LOOK pixelated, but its the same resolution as the Nexus one, just a little bit bigger screen. Just an aspect of SAMOLED screens i guess
