I guess the minimum voltage in GN has been increased at least compared to Nexus S. Here's comparison of my Nexus S (left) and GN (right). Pic is taken with 5 sec exposure. To be honest, the difference in that photo looks slightly bigger compared to what it is real life, probably because of that exposure time.

Black is from Dead Pixel Test apps black (second) screen. https://market.android.com/details?i...acha.deadpixel
