Secrets of the Nexus One’s screen: science, color, and hacks

In two recent comparisons of the Nexus One’s famed AMOLED screen to the iPhone’s LCD screen, one done by a display testing company and another done by a blogger, the Google phone’s display actually came out the loser. Most of the online debate that followed the two articles was centered around color accuracy, color quantization artifacts, viewing angle, etc., with Google’s defenders arguing that the numbers don’t tell the full story because you have to take human perception and the human visual system into account, among other factors. But a related, and potentially even bigger issue, hasn’t been investigated as thoroughly as the others. Specifically, despite the fact that both Google and HTC have repeatedly claimed that the Nexus One’s display is 480×800 pixels in size (252 pixels per inch), the actual effective screen resolution may be substantially less than that, depending on how you count the pixels.

The Nexus One is an awesome phone in general—it’s the first one I will likely want to keep for a while. However, I feel like I didn’t get the specs that I thought I was paying for. And for early adopters, the Nexus One was not «try before you buy.» Ultimately, the screen is great for photos, but not great for its primary use case, text. It would’ve been great if Google and HTC could’ve made that fact clear up-front, instead of claiming that the resolution is a simple 480×800.
