Hands on by every tech site said the screen looks gorgeous, and even Engadget said it looks just as good as the screen on the Galaxy S II.

This quote from the link pretty much sums this up:

This is all I heard:

“Hey, the Galaxy Nexus screen is inferior even though nobody can tell by looking at it and the colors and contrast ratio are better than my iPhone resulting in a better overall look… still iPhone is better I need to point it out to everyone so I can feel better about myself and my iPhone.”

Super AMOLED Plus wasnt pentile, this one wont be either. Only the original and Super AMOLED were pentile.

That's incorrect. It's Pentile, which is the only way they could make the resolution so high with the technology they currently have.

The proof is with the Galaxy Note, now with that device it didn't really hamper the looks as the screen still looked pretty good in videos and pictures, however when Super AMOLED HD plus comes out it will most likely be a difference you can see.

Apple did it over 1 year ago with iPhone 4.

The Galaxy Nexus has a Super AMOLED display, not a Super AMOLED Plus. The Plus represents that fact that its not pentile. The original Galaxy S had a Super AMOLED display with pentile technology and a 800x480 resolution which made the pentile stand out, whereas the Galaxy S II uses the Plus model with the same resolution but without pentile and it looks vastly superior.
With the Galaxy Nexus, even if it is pentile I think the pixel density is great enough that you shouldn't be able to tell the difference weather its pentile or not.

from everything I've read and seen Pentile is only a bother when pixel density isn't as high. The Galaxy Nexus should be fine.

Gizmodo is known for being Pro-Apple, but if this is true... bugger.
