Default T-Mobile Galaxy S2's screen vs Unlocked GS2

Hi, I have the TM GS2 and The Unlocked GS2, and there is a big difference in the screens.

Thanx
And if I play 1080p video on YouTube the unlocked version plays very very smooth and the TM version can't play even 720P without lag. I think its the gpu

Strange, I've played several 1080p vids on youtube with no problems, it's very very smooth. Granted I don't have the unlocked version to compare it to, but no complaints here.

Great comparison on the screenshots, do we attribute the washed out colors on the T-mobile version due to the larger screen?

i had the unlocked version and the user interface and experience was much smoother, i sold it and got this basically for the data

however, 1080p videos play fine for me. no lag

1080p plays fine but on YouTube site it can't stream 1080p and 720p is lagging

I can live with the CPU/GPU being a little weaker with better battery life and a compatible modem. Can you see the difference between 480p and 1080p on a 4 inch screen?

But the fact that the screen is washed out compared to the unlocked one is pretty disappointing.
