HAving said that, kind of hard to judge don't you think?
If you watch 720p movies is not good at 1080p screen. Because of the distinguishability is too high

What I'm wondering is the gray effect, ghosting, holographic gray color or is it the glare? It's weird..is this the sharpening effect that people talk about? I mean, the text does look very sharp. But maybe it's just the pixel density?

Care to explain?
You mean when you move the screen around? To me, it looks like half the screen is dimmer than the other. The top half is brighter. I don't wanna exchange the phone for another one because this one runs so cool and battery life is incredible, but it is kind of distracting when you notice it.

If Im being totally honest Im a little underwhelmed by the screen. Sure it looks good, all the phones look good now though.Its way more accurate than the M8 but I prefer the Z2 screen for sharpness and colors.

one word: OVER-SHARPENED!

I think it's because I'm so used to amoled displays where viewing angles and contrast ratios are infinite. But putting it beside an HTC One M7 still looks like the display is floating with grays, kind of like a software based glare.....

Well its certainly less nice to look at then the m8 IMO and Z2. Those screens were pretty nice. The z2 killed it for me though cause the high reflectivity and lower brightness.
