I just wanted to get a sense of contrast...but it's not relevant any longer. I just got back from the Verizon store. I like the phone, but I wasn't wowed by it. That's not really surprising, since it's not billed as a superphone. It has good points, but the screen was definitely the weakest part. On its own and in the store, it looks fine. I am not bothered by PenTile (I can see it but I'm used to it with the Photon), and even the blue-ish tint isn't a deal breaker. But setting the D4 and my Photon to max brightness and comparing them side by side, the D4 is nowhere near as bright as the Photon. On the other hand, since the D4 was right next to the Droid Razr I compared those and the D4 was brighter. The Droid Bionic was the brightest of the three Droids, coming fairly close to the Photon (I compared the brightness of various identical screens, like the settings page and the Google Search app). Overall I would not call it a bad screen - it looked fine, but it definitely gives me pause and I'm glad I didn't order it sight unseen since I apparently have higher standards which have been set by another Motorola device. Since the display is physically smaller than the Photon but with the same resolution, the higher pixel density makes icons and text look smoother, which is a plus. My other issue with the screen was that it registered a number of mis-taps. Twice during the 10 minutes I was using the phone in the store, I did a swipe and the phone registered a tap (opening an app instead of sliding home screens). Also, twice I tapped on an icon in the programs menu and a completely different program opened. The second time I actually saw the wrong icon light up for a split second before the wrong program opened (two spaces away from the one I chose). I've never seen that with any other Android device including the Photon, so I don't know if that was just this display unit or if it's something with the D4. I have read at least one other person say they saw the same behavior. Overall, I'm still tempted but I'm not sure the D4 is worth jumping carriers and paying an ETF for. If the screen was as bright as the Photon I'd have switched without a second thought - the keyboard is really nice - but I guess I'm going to be one of the picky ones. Since I'm noting some comparisons, I'll also note that switching from landscape to portrait on the Photon is much quicker than the D4, which surprised me since the Photon is maybe 5-6 months old at this point (still dual core though). It's not enough to bother me or prevent me from switching, but it still surprised me.
