Why is a 1080p screen of the Droid DNA breathtaking? The clarity? The colour saturation? Or do you simply like the bigger screen?

For me, the 4" screen of the iPhone 5 with the retina display and 44% more color saturation than the predecessor is already quite decent. I literally cannot see the pixels on the screen, and I certainly do not need anything clearer than that.

LCD screens should be judged by how accurate they display colors as intended by the original author/creator. Anyone can over/under-saturate displays, that itself is not impressive. What is impressive is displaying colors as accurately as original intended. That is why you see some LCD monitors cost $1000s and others that are the same size, same resolution, etc. for like $100. I prefer accuracy and precision.

So do you prefer the iPhone 5's screen as opposed to other smartphones' screen?

I prefer IPS LCD over AMOLED. HTC One X, iPhone 4/4S/5, Droid DNA, LG Nexus 4, LG Optimus G over Samsung Galaxy S III, Motorola RAZR.

They are right, there is no better screen out there in any other android or other phone. And also if you compare the iphine 5 screen to the ps vita the iphone 5 screen wins.

These guys seem to think the iphone 5 screen is the best thing ever
http://www.displaymate.com/Smartphone_ShootOut_2.htm

And they didn't just eyeball it either, they have a lab and stuff. Dang, who am I gonna believe? Some negative folks on a forum, or people who actually took measurements?

Hmm.. difficult, difficult

It's something you'd need to see in person - I don't own a DNA and I won't ever own one because I think it's too big (for me at least, some people like phablets). The reproduction of whites are the best I've seen on any smartphone and text is insanely crisp - even crisper than that of the iPhone 5. In addition, it plays 1080p videos natively, which is absolutely amazing. It's a great screen plagued by poor battery life and and HTC Sense.
