    Not sure anyone else noted but the iPhone 4 has rid the screen of the useless gap that was around the LCD. Looks much nicer now! :)

    The iPhone 4 video said something about laminating the screen with the glass so there's no gap, it looks much nicer.

    I've noticed in pictures (so it's no guarantee that it'll be like this in person) that the black background is much deeper so that it matches the black glass. This makes it look like icons are floating on black glass, with no background.

    It's pretty much the case for my iPad (same IPS-type screen).

    I think you might be right. It's just darker maybe. I remember seeing the white iPhone 4 and noticed the black border was different.

    Anyone have a link to a photo of the white iPhone 4?

    I think you nailed it! I have been noticing some cool effect all day but I think it makes sense now :D

    I just wanted to point out that OP's picture is excellent for showing the new pixel density :)

    Look at the icon labels. You literally can't tell there are pixels there. :eek:

    White is nice but it reminds me too much of the Nokia phones. Lol.

    The clarity is really nice. I am glad they addressed that issue.

    Going with the black because of this...


    That little bar around the screen has always bugged me.

    The screen on the new iPhone is ridiculous. Can't wait for the 15th and 24th. And black all the way.

    I hated that gap. It collected so much dust and just looked like crap.

    I'd like to say that I called this. People complained about the screen on the leak being 'slightly smaller' than the existing iPhone screen. I mentioned that it was likely because they cropped out the display gap, making the perceived size a bit smaller but maintaining the effective screen size.

    Score one for random conjecture.

    lol. of course, every screen on the market is better than 480 x 320. these photos are also blown up. while i'm not knocking the iphone screen, i think it might be overkill. reminds me of the 32" tvs that have 1080p. u can't even tell because the screen is so small. in addition, u need to be a certain distance to notice the upgrade. how close will we need to be to the iphone 4 screen to notice if it's better than other phone resolutions? i'm waiting to see it in person but overkill can't be bad, right? :p

    I was there with ya :)

    People kept saying the screen was smaller. It was not. It was the lack of bezel and the design changes that made it LOOK smaller. Still the same but better! :D
