    Have any of you other Bionic owners out there noticed that the screen on your phone seem to be sharper, brighter, more responsive and clearer over that last couple days?? It seems like moto pushed out a background update that changed something....(I don't know how to tell if my screen rez changed, or if they upped the type of color output or what) but it looks amazing now!!! What say you guys?:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

    I have noticed! But it might have something to do with me tearing off a cheap Verizon screen protector and replacing it with Zagg Invisible Shield........

    I've honestly always been happy with the screen. I think the ones who had problems with it were the ones searching for things to complain about.

    No I got ya. I wasn't thinking you were complaining. I just mean other Bionic owners in general.

    Good point, hadn't paid attention to the font changing. Anyone know any tricks to see if anythings been changed (besides checking baseband, etc.)

    I will say I've noticed my screen seems to be brighter. I'm like blue, I never had a problem with the screen in the first place. But I'm telling you the phone is a smidgeon brighter than it was, which might account for the sharpness increase you're seeing. Don't see why they'd do that without telling us though, especially while we're on the edge of ours eats for a real update...

    I am sure that if Moto wanted to push out a patch that improved the display, it would simply be incorporated into the upcoming update. Why risk the stability/success of this highly anticipated Bionic update with a pre-release that changes the baseline environment for the main release? Can't see it.

    I've thought from the start that the Bionic display is the right combination of readability (indoor and outdoor), aesthetics (color rendering) and usability (battery savings). So I've been a big fan right from the start.

    I recently changed from the stock launcher to Go Launcher Ex with the ICS theme. IMO, it's beautiful and I continue to be reminded of just how great this display is every time I grab my Bionic.

    Could it be a pre-update that lays the groundwork for the upcoming OTA? I haven't noticed any changes nor has any version numbers changed on my phone though.
