    Default Re: Galaxy Nexus vs. iPhone 4/4S displays

    I have both an iphone 4S and a GNex (just picked up the unlocked version) and sorry, but the iphone 4S' display is by far superior in quality... smaller, yes, and that's the biggest downside, but otherwise, it's crisper,higher contrast, more natural colors, better in sunlight,and just overall better.

    I agree. I have both as well. Bought the unlocked G-Nex directly through Google iPhone's screen is much better in quality. I'm guessing this is because of the G-Nex PenTile screen. Now I've seen the HTC One X screen and that looks equal if not better than the iPhone's.

    I've not yet seen a OneX screen but I've heard they're really good. That's why I'll avoid even looking at one otherwise I might end up buying one

    Lol. Yep, I tried to purchase the One X as soon as I saw it. Then they said it doesn't actually launch until May 6th. Left the store feeling sad.

    Having looked at both my GNex and two different iphone 4s's side by side, I'm very happy with my screen quality.

    All I'll say is I use a Gnex. My buddy is a die-hard Apple fan -- but not an outright fanboy, he knows good stuff when he sees it.

    He hadn't seen a Gnex yet. He took one look at the screen and I quote:

    "Holy (S-word that rhymes with pit) that screen is amazing!" (He kept looking at it, even put his 4s beside it to compare size and resolution)

    Conclusion? 4s might appear more vivid/clear in some situations, but you can't deny the size of the Gnex screen sure helps

    The one x screen puts samsungs to shame. Seriously, it is not even a contest.

    If you don't know what makes a PenTile display undesirable then you probably can't guess that is what it is that makes you prefer the iPhone screen over the GNex.

    I personally don't know the technical reasons, but I do know I wish the Gnex had the crisp sharp display of my wife's iPhone... but I'll take the larger screen instead.

    in the end, does it really matter which is better?

    The Gnex screen is good for me and a minor imperfection in the dimmest brightness setting (which i'll never set it to anyway) is hardly reason to not be happy with the screen.

    I would wager that over 95% of GNex owners do not set their phone on the dimmest brightness level. Most probably use auto-brightness and the rest are more likely to have it brighter than dimmer.

    BTW, they could have easily limited the phone to not go as dim as it does and then the issue would magically be gone lol.
