Because 1 uses a different type of subpixel technology to the other, and it makes a huge difference.



Saw an article on Anandtech confirming that the Galaxy Nexus will indeed use a pentile array.

Yeah, they have. I posted that on the prior page:

The PPI of the 4S and the Nexus is pretty close but the Nexus's sub pixel PPI is a fair bit less; the 4S has a sub pixel density of 613 whilst the Nexus is 414.

Samsung's PenTile technology is far superior to Motorola's crap one seen on its qHD devices, actually. If you don't know yet, the Nexus S and Galaxy S sport PenTile array displays yet still look really darn crisp. The subpixel layout on a full 720p display on a Galaxy Nexus will be even harder to spot.

Probably due to something written into the contract when Samsung agreed to manufacture the screens for Apple. Well done to Samsung for producing such a screen (Apple get no praise from me on this ).

Indeed, I'm hoping Apple steps it up to 1440x960

It might indeed look great but the difference if it wasn't PenTile would be greatly noticeable.

The phone is too big anyway. 4.6/4.7..ugh. I want a nice 3.5ish inch screen phone. My HTC Magic is a great shell/case, just outdated internals.

Though the 4s may be higher in resolution, every time i use my wife's 4s I am constantly annoyed that it's such a tiny screen. I can make out the difference between my gII vs 4s, but it's marginal at best.
