    I've been waiting until they officially announced the specs on this phone to ask this question, but I really want to know as much as I can about this screen. I was a little disappointed hearing the GNex had a pentile screen, even if it is supposed to be better than Motorola's. Can anyone tell me how the super LCD on the Resound will compare with others, specifically the SAMOLED of the gnex?

    Hearing great things about it. All of the hands on reports today say it is amazing. It is an SLCD 720p screen. Saw somebody say it looks more clear and crisp than the iPhone. GNex might have better colors. But in terms of clarity, I think this one is going to be king. The Rezound has the highest PPI of any device on the market.

    Nooooo....the g nex wont have better colors. More pleasing maybe if you like high contrast, very saturated colors(I like it). Not more accurate though. The slcd screen on my dinc 2 is already very nice at 800x400.

    This will have the best screen of any out I bet.

    342ppi! I can't wait to tell the iClone people (with their measily 330ppi) to stick that in their pipe and smoke it.

    I have to say that's one of the biggest draws of this phone. SLCD has far better color accuracy than any amoled. Add to that the fact that the galaxy nexus' amoled is a pentile matrix screen (though, a very good one, so that isn't a big factor) and the rezound does have a few points in its favor. I am curious to see how it stacks up against the galaxy nexus on benchmark scores, and to see how its camera compares.

    You went to Verizon and attempted to ruin some of their property? Bad form.

    I've been playing with mine all day, and I have to say this is the nicest screen I've ever laid my eyes on (in a phone anyway)!!

    Colors pop, great contrast, not a trace of motion blur, schweet!

    I did.....and failed.... :)

    they were being jack holes to me anyhow! If it would have scratched i would have whistled a little and walked out like nothing happened.:icon_ lala:

    Now im not saying that the screen wont scratch...but the fortified glass they used is good stuff.

    I plan on doing this to the nexus as well.....:)

    I'm going to sound like a stick in the mud here, but that's not your property to be running scratch tests on. Even if the sales people were annoyed there is no justification for attempting to vandalize their stuff.

    I understand that its just a demo unit that will probably never make it onto a consumer account but the device still costs money to produce. Also I'm willing to bet that a decent rep would do a scratch test for you. I know that if a customer is curious about screen scratch resistance ill take out my own keys and key the device myself (this has burned me in the past, though)

    Your fine man, and I understand where you coming from. I have no regrets(besides not having a knife on me, since it would be harder metal)! :D

    I owned a Dinc for a year and I am a landscaper. In the pocket with sand, tools, keys. Various drops, face plants, etc and my screen never scratched or cracked so I am not worried about that at all.

    Only thing about the screen... being old and having questionable eyesight, everything is TINY because of the high res. Colors are not as saturated as they were on the Samsung Charge but then again, over saturation isn't natural to begin with.
