    Hey so my one month old droid incredible started having problems. The headphone jack stopped working. So I got a warrenty replacement (brand new, not refurb) and I guess I got the new screen everyone's talking about...

    All I have to say is it is HORRIBLE in comparison to the older samsung screens. Completely washed out, "pink"ish looking.

    I'm so sad :(

    I think it's a great screen. No issues with it at all, except for maybe in sunlight.

    Side by side my old screen was MUCH better.. this screen seems to be on par with the original droid, which is fine.. but the original dinc screen was amazing.

    New screen? You mean the ones that HTC announced they weren't going to use?

    They're still using AMOLED screens so you must have gotten another bad DROID.

    I bought my DI on release day and just had it replaced with a new refurb. My screen looks great and might actually be better then my original. I do notice that on my original when the screen was off I could see tiny little dots under the glass when I tilted the phone just right, my new screen does not have this! Not sure if this is an indication that I have a different screen type then before.

    They did not change screens, they are still the same samsung amoled. They considered changing them but did not. Return the "pinkish" one for a new one.
