Creative Hungarians have enlarged 11x with a microscope sections of the IPS-LCD and Super AMOLED displays on the LG Optimus 2X and Samsung Galaxy S, respectively, clearly showing the disadvantages of the PenTile matrix arrangement...

click on the galaxy s, then click on the android market icon. at 11 times magnification, you can very well see that the galaxy s screen has much less subpixels than the matrix on the optimus 2X.
glad they fixed that in the galaxy SII, can't wait for Super amoleds with higher resolution, they should be coming later this year...

yes.. if you put your eyeball on the damn screen you will see the difference. yes pentile has less pixels. in real world use, the difference is minimal when looking at different screens. Besides, S.Amoled with Pentile is yesterdays news. The GalaxyS2 doesnt use Pentile on its SAmoled+ screens.

Id still take my vibrant over an iphone4 any day of the week. Ill take the better color representation over a slightly sharper image. I dont put the phone to my nose that often. :)

Galaxy S 2 will be the first phone with a screen better than my 2 years old Omnia HD... Even with higher res and size of Galaxy S, the Omnia HD screen is much clearer and more detailed. You can hardly see the pixels because of thr RGB arrangement. Pentile looks like it has huge pixel spacing.
I hope the price won't be crazy, or i will have to buy Optimus x2, and i'm addicted to amoled's true blacks.

oh, i just wanted to point out something

They have the "HD2" as "LCD". It was infact an AMOLED display. OI.
