Samsung Galaxy Nexus display inferior to Samsung Galaxy S II?

Samsung Galaxy Nexus display inferior to Samsung Galaxy S II?  One of the standout features of the recently-revealed Samsung Galaxy Nexus is undoubtedly its 4.65in Super AMOLED display.

Alas, some eagle-eyed geeks have pointed out that the spec sheet refers simply to Super AMOLED, and not Super AMOLED Plus. The latter is found on the Samsung Galaxy S II, while the former is an inferior technology used on the original Samsung Galaxy S.

With RGB panels, each pixel is made up of three separate sub-pixels, namely – you guessed it – red, green and blue. The resultant display is crisp and sexy, and can be seen in action on the iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S II.

PenTile technology, on the other hand, has just two sub-pixels, leading to blurry edges and bleeding. It’s used on the Samsung Galaxy S.

Having said that, there’s a school of thought that suggests sub-pixel density rather than pixel density would give the Samsung Galaxy Nexus the edge over its younger S II brother.

Not to mention the hands-on reports that seem to unanimously agree that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus’ screen is awesomeness.

Still, we’ll be keeping a keen eye on the first round of reviews.

Even if it was using PenTile tech, at 720p on 4.65", it's 315 pixels per inch, which is beyond what the eye can see at normal ranges anyway. PenTile isn't bad either, I certainly didn't notice anything terrible about the Desire's PenTile display.

Had no problems with my Nexus One either which was very similar to the Desire. If anything the incredible colour depth and view range makes it a very pleasant device to use.

Yup, going from Desire to Sensation was a noticeable downgrade in contrast and the vividness of the colours. All things considered, the extra resolution makes a much bigger difference though.
