So now that the Galaxy Nexus is shipping (at least in the UK), I wonder if AppleInsider will recant this hit piece? Almost every review has raved about the screen.
T3: "the quality of the giant 4.6 glass panel is immediately apparent. Samsung has included a 1280x720 AMOLED screen, which is simply mind-blowing, with deep vibrant colours, and pin sharp detail. Blacks do look pixelated on close inspection, but overall, the picture is superb" - http://www.t3.com/reviews/samsung-galaxy-nexus-review
Techradar: "The screen quality of the Galaxy Nexus is as sumptuous as ever when it comes to Samsung screen - it lacked the colour depth of the Galaxy S2 in our eyes, but the sharpness of the screen was unrivalled, so it's clear to see the 4.65-inch screen is going to be a real winner for movies and the like." - http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-...review-1036487
The Verge: "The 1280 x 720, 4.65-inch display is quite a handsome affair, utilizing Super AMOLED technology, which produces rich colors while keeping battery consumption to a minimum. While the screen is a pentile display, the crispness of text and images was far superior to most lower resolution pentile displays I've seen." - http://www.theverge.com/2011/11/17/2...y-nexus-review
Engadget: "the 4.65-inch 1280x720 pixel screen is simply gorgeous despite using a PenTile matrix. Fonts are crisp, colors are vibrant, blacks are deep, and viewing angles are exceptional." - http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/17/g...essions-video/
CNET: "With a 1,280x720-pixel Super AMOLED resolution, the HD display is wonderfully bright and vivid with eye-popping colors. Everything looks great, from graphics to photos to menu icons." - http://reviews.cnet.com/smartphones/...-35042961.html
Wired UK: "It has a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display, which is perfectly readable in bright sunlight, and is running at 1280x720-pixel resolution. It's clear and bright, and reproduces colours well." and "Its massive display looks fantastic" - http://www.wired.co.uk/reviews/mobil...e-phone-review
Wired: "the Galaxy Nexus 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED screen delivers all the crisp, clear image quality that makes hardcore mobile enthusiasts flock to Samsung display technology." - http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/...-nexus-android
MobileSyrup: "The Galaxy Nexus has one of the most stunning screens weve ever seen. The pixels are so small as to be microscopic, and unless you utilize one youre not going to see a PenTile grid. What you will see is sharp text, incredible viewing angles, perfect blacks and outstanding clarity." - http://mobilesyrup.com/2011/11/17/ga...verview-video/
So, AppleInsider -- time for a follow-up?
