    It was the same on the D3. It has a ghosting problem but the trade off is power efficiency and it's very good in direct sunlight. Coming from a GNEX and I'm very happy so far.

    Screen has a horrible bluish tint. Don't think I'll be getting a d4.

    Really? You like the trade offs of the droid 4 over the Gnex? I don't have a G Nex myself, so I'm not going to defend it. But you didn't want a Razr, Razr Maxx, or Rezound? All 3 of those don't have the issue that your are claiming the D4 has.

    It is pretty noticeable, I'm gonna give it couple of weeks and see how everything else performs before I jump ship. Pretty annoying once your keyed into it.

    I actually don't find the screen awlful at all.

    I can easily read e-mail. A side note: it's so quick to open and close e-mail messages! I think I'm going to be amazed by the speed of this thing for a while :biggrin:

    "Load up gmail and scroll slowly...the text gets so blurry its almost unreadable"
    The e-mail only is blurry when I scroll, of course, but other then that it's pretty easy to read. So yes, I couldn't read and scroll at the same time, but that doesn't seem to bother me. I read some e-mails from here before I read this post and I had no trouble.

    I must have bad eyes because it looks just fine to me. This is going to be muuuuuuch better than my D1. Obsessively reloading this site and DL is over ;D

    Its definitely not a deal breaker for me. Everything else has been very good, so far with as much as I've played with it, setting it up and so on the battery is holding up pretty good and will only get better after a few charge cycles. Keyboard is amazing to me so far.

    The screen is definitely not my favorite part of the phone... That said, it's livable, and the homescreen blurring seems to be Blur doing some not so great looking animations.

    Seeing the screen in direct sunlight makes it worth it to me. I don't need theater quality on a cell phone. I don't plan to invite my friends over to watch the super bowl on my phone.

    I love this ****ing phone.

    My only problem with the screen is that maybe it could have been a tad bit bigger if M would lessen the bezel width. If they stretched it flush to the edge it may have been a 4.3 without increasing the physical width of the phone.

    But I'm loving it, not one complaint yet other than having a weird software issue with the pattern screen lock.

    The screen does have a blue tint to it, but I've only noticed it when using Handcent, all other times it seems beautiful to me.

    I have no idea what people are talking about with this "blue tint" talk. Don't see it. Someone please post a pic of this.
