    Pentile screens will help with power consumption

    Oh I didn't mean from the Bionic, I just meant never phones with larger displays. If they have a display that draws less power, than that's a step in the right direction.

    I realize you didn't mean the bionic, i wasn't talking about the bionic either. if phones are going to have 4.5" screens with the same form factor, then having pentile screens is a good option to help with power consumption for a bigger screen when you can't fit in a bigger battery

    Well, we have fairly vague reviews of the Bionic's battery so far, the only one that showed any proof of extensive testing was the one from Droid-Life, hopefully they will hold true once it's officially released.

    This is what the twitter, RSS Feeds, Forums, Reddit, and the internet in general has done to me...

    I wouldn't doubt it if they did skip out on it because of competition. Since Samsung was making their release in September, same time frame as the Bionic
