Man, you are looking way closer than most people. Razz

Are these things you can see at 1-2 feet away (normal use) or just when you hold it up to your eye? I would argue that unless it bothers you from a distance of 18 inches, it's a non-issue.

Some of them do "cheat" a bit with sub-pixels. The Nexus One OLED screen is one infamous example of this. It did not have all three colors (red green and blue) for each advertised "pixel" making up the "full" resolution. This did affect the image quality and make it look as you describe. It annoyed me, although it doesn't seem to annoy most people.

But I haven't heard this complaint about any of the recent Samsung sAMOLED phones.
