If you are comparing it with the likes of incredible S then it should be on par or little bit greater. Increasing the pixel size does indeed enhances the colors and also give the advantage of having more details. The thing that's wrong with what they did here is balancing the pixel sizes and the number of megapixels on the camera.
Putting ratio computations here.
The trend now is a 13mp camera.
making a 4mp camera sacrifices 9mp and that's almost 1/3 of 13mp.
while they only increased the pixel size by x2 making it 1/2 compared to the lack of the 9mp.
so 1/3 : 1/2 is quite not balanced making it a 3:2 ratio on both ultrapixel and megapixels.
to balance this calculation they should have made a 6.5mp camera to make the megapixel a 1/2 and by doubling the ultrapixel giving it also 1/2 sufficing the lack of wider megapixel.
Sorry for being a math junky here.
