    They somehow have to make it cheaper than the iPhone right?

    It doesn't matter as much remember the pixels when compared on the Pentile in Motorola's TFT qHD displays versus Super AMOLED on a Nexus S? The pixelation wasn't nearly as bad, I expect that it won't be as noticeable on the Galaxy Nexus, especially with that high of a PPI.

    You couldn't tell the difference to save your life. Its a moot point.

    Can't say I care that much since I have an iPhone 4S...

    But even so the Nexus is an amazing combination of pure android software + great hardware.

    I'd wait until Anandtech's review of it came out before making any judgements ;)

    I think they're betting its negligible with hopes of improving battery life in the process, why not

    Doesn't really matter... It's a big screen at a high resolution with vibrant colors. It's awesome

    What do you know, an Android handset manufacture cheaped out... what's new.

    Come on people... do you want a Ford Lincoln (Nexus) or a Mercedes Benz S550 (iPhone 4S).

    Both great products but the build quality sets them apart.

    This isn't that big of a deal just like the 4S having 512MB of RAM isn't that big of a deal.

    This link has the iPhone 4s and Galaxy S2. Guessing the Nexus will be built like the Galaxy S2. Hate to own that Mercedes Benz. Break to easy :)

    Lincoln versus Mercedes? That's a bit extreme don't you think?

    Maybe Samsung found a way to improve the tech. I haven't seen any complaints about clarity on unbiased tech sites, so it can't be that much of an issue.
