The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is ushering in the era of real 720p displays on our phones. This means that you get the same amount of pixels in a phone that you get on a lot of big-screened HDTVs out there. The Galaxy Nexus uses Samsung’s Super AMOLED HD panel. The lack of the “Plus” as found on the Galaxy S 2 means that the Galaxy Nexus isn’t using an RGB sub-pixel configuration where each pixel has numerous sub-pixels, but rather it uses a pentile sub-pixel configuration which means that some sub-pixels are shared between other pixels. What does this mean? Not that much when you’re dealing with such a high resolution display. Those with the best eyes will notice a little bit of pixelation with certain text, but for the rest of us, the Galaxy Nexus’ display is gorgeous.
