i'm actually hoping for 4.5" now that i've spent a year with the 4.3" DX i have a fever that can only be cured by increasing screen size! in fact, what i really can't wait for is ice cream sandwich, because then there don't have to be any physical buttons and you can imagine a phone with a 5" screen and very slim bezel that is still manageable.
If this phone comes out soon, I can see my grabbing this. And just keep my 1 year update cycle going...cuz I will grab some phone in 2012 too...lol
Is PenTile really that bad? i understand very very up close you can kinda make it out but will it really affect everyday use?
Shoot, just the decision to give my OG Droid 256mb of Ram and little app memory have made OG Droid owners STRUGGLE to last out their 20 months if they got it right away, much less if they bought into it a few months after intro. Pretty sure subsequent Android releases and apps that try and leverage MP cores over the next 20 months are going to make the early 4 core phones look like really smart moves in that 12-20 month after subsidy range. Shoot 4 cores and the first Adobe Flash plugin to tag them all for full HD streaming to a TV with butter smoothness could happen by or soon after the first quadcore phone hits and that ignores what it could do for games.
Create an RGBW screen where each entire pixel has all 4 RGBW subpixels. The screen should be equivalent to a QHD subpixel-wise, which would mean 960 * 3 / 4 = 720 by 540 * 3 / 4 = 405. This 720x405 screen would be lower resolution than most screens but would have great battery life (like pentile), improved brightness (like pentile), great color reproduction (lacking in pentile), and no weird jaggies (frustratingly apparent in pentile).
The pentile QHD they have now is actually sort of a scam subpixel-wise because, as we are all aware, 1/3 of the pixels are missing from what would be a "real" QHD. And, on top of that lost 1/3, another 1/6 of those pixels were changed to white! This effectively is like cutting the entire resolution in HALF in both dimensions, which is like having one FOURTH the pixels. And this is why I would rather them just do the sub-pixeling correctly instead of trying to create a "seemingly higher" rez display that in reality creates these jaggies that look lower rez than would be if they had just lowered the rez "for real" and did it properly.
The resolution is only effectively halved in ONE dimension, not TWO as I wrote above. Therefore, the total resolution would only be half, not one fourth (my bad )
