    How does the screen look under normal usage? Is the pentile noticible?

    This is actually a pretty valid question and mine as well. P3droid said the screen looks better than both the DX2 and the D3. I'm curious if it's still pentile, or if they improved upon it.

    Here we go again what?

    Has there been any normal non tech bloggers out there with the phone that have given their opinion on the screen? We are all going off p3droid saying its pentile is better than the DX2 and D3....what does that really tell us?

    Easy......

    I'm not knocking your question. I'm just envisioning the dozens of silly pro/anti pentile nonsense-comments that will probably be rehashed for the 50th time.

    No I hear you, this is just the 1st one in the hands of a customer/vzw employee whatever and I suspect we may get some real time opinions.

    Asking how the screen looks is a perfectly legitimate question which i'm sure most people want an answer to. But who really cares if its pentile? If you look at it and think it is the best looking screen you've ever seen, then a rep comes over and tells you its a pentile are you going to put it down and leave? how about we start worrying about how it looks instead of if its called "pentile" geez

    Initial thoughts. The phone is extremely light and is actually pretty thin. The battery is 1730 mah and is pretty big. The screen is contoured on the edges and it comes with a 16gb microsd card. Power button is in a awkward spot though. Its on the left shoulder of the phone. Its a pretty big phone as well, its along the lines of the charge. I will report back soon on the screen.

    I hear you, but when the screen looks pixelated/blurry/ghosted/etc what is causing that.......the pentile.

    I second this one as well. The phone was Euro SGSII smooth! How much does it take to bog the phone down as well?

    Exactly! My Chrage is no where near as smooth as the video this is a big one. Looks like this ex-blur OS runs very well on the dual core.

    I would love to see a few extra videos of surfing the menus and such.

    Start up is ridiculously fast, sound is surprisingly good. The back is plastic like the d3. The camera problem that was widely talked about this the d3 is a NON factor. It boots up right away with no lag. The pentile screen looks a little different, but to be honest I love the pentile screen. More on performance in a bit.

    I read somewhere that the Bionic's screen was SLIGHTLY slimmer...I hope not, but that's the "word."

    I'd like to take the rest of the off and just read the manual and hope the OP posts lots of info/videos to look at!

    Does it have an actual METAL trim ring around the outside or is that shiny plastic? It also looks more charcoal gray than black?

    I'm a fan of pentile as well. I was surprised in either one of the pictures or the video, though. The screen, for whatever reason, just seemed incredibly vibrant to me. I was more curious when P3 sent that tweet out. Can't wait to see it in real life.

    Nice the hear about the camera. Would like to see some pictures or 1080p video from it. The screen is an opinion. There is not a yes or no answer that we can get from one person about the screen. Just gotta go see it for yourself and see if you are good with it.
