Have Our Prayers Been Answered? Motorola Appears to Have Ditched the PenTile Matrix Display in the Atrix 2

The folks over at This is my next got a hold of the Motorola Edison (aka the Atrix 2) today and took a macro shot of its screen because at first glance it appeared much more crisp and clear than that of the DROID Bionic.  There is a reason for that – it’s different screen technology.  Well, they are both LCD screens to our knowledge, but the one in the new Atrix looks just like what we saw from the original DROIDX as well as the LCD you see on the iPhone 4 - which is the farthest thing from a PenTile matrix display.  

This image that we took of the DROIDX2 vs. the DROIDX compares this as well.

(Click for larger version)

I’m not sure I have been this excited about the screen on a phone that I will never own, in my life.

*Note – By the way, in my review I was pretty clear that I’m more a fan of the Bionic’s screen than any other PenTile screen I’ve seen.  It’s really not that bad at times.  With that said though, Motorola chose to use those screens to yes help on battery life, but also because they are cheap or at least less expensive than other screen technology.  So this is a good sign.  It either means they aren’t as worried about battery life and have figured something out with their processors or they just want you to have higher quality screens.  This is a major step back in the right direction.

Via:  This is my next

Cheers Chris!

    The larger problem with the pentile displays when gaming is the horrible red ghosting, It’s a two-fold problem. Try launching a red bird in Angry Birds.

  • BionicCommando3214

    Can you see it in the sun? The Charge’s samoled+ screen was fantastic indoors, but outside it was less than useless.

    The bionic’s screen looks good everywhere. Its a great compromise for the non-basement dwellers. Since I don’t shove the phone up my nose when I’m looking at it, I’m quite happy with the all around performance it gives.

    When they have a screen tech that is good/better than samoled+, with all the pros of pentile, then I’ll complain about the screen. Right now I prefer the Bionic’s screen.

    passed on the bionic because of the pentile display.  it’s a piece of crap.  i’m  a pixel peeper .. i need nice, clear res.  good riddance!

    I got a bionic and I just have to say that people complaining about the pentile screen either look at their phones way too close or are just in need of something to hate about life. It would be like throwing my ps3 and xbox in the garbage because the graphics are not as smooth as my computers. If you care so much about something like this then you need to put down your technology and enjoy the outside world.

      Why should people not care about something they spend their hard earned money on?  Your whole argument makes no sense.

      • Keith Sumner

        He’s right, though, The screen is fine. You’d only notice pentile matrix pixellation if you shove the phone about 2 inches from your face, squint, and try really hard to focus on it.

    • Anonymous

      You got it all wrong the x is because it is a 4.3 display and it looks perfect. You can put anything on a 3.7 display. Why do you feel the retina looks so good? It is just a 3.5 display

      • dieringer scott

        Its about screen resolution…. the retina display has the highest res out there

        • Anonymous

          That i know but the quality of the display has alot to do with it too. The DROID x2 has the second higher resolution out there and it looks worse than the DROIDX, which has a lower resolution.

  • mikeym0p

    Is the Edison a 4″ or a 4.3″? Perhaps we could pop them open and swap the screen with that of the Bionic and then users who hate the pentile can be happy. Or maybe even stranger, they release Bionics with the new screens like the did with the N1, Desire and Dinc and the transition to SLCD

    • Anonymous

      The Edison will be better but with no lte so the bionic will stil be the best one because of it’s lte

  • Anonymous

    All they need to do is use a screen of the same quality, as the OG Droid, with qhd (or full hd) resolution, and make it brighter.

    BOOM done. Problem solved

    For those of you that don’t see the pixels then you have a problem. I went and looked at the bionic and thats the first thing I noticed. Everything was jagged. I just don’t get how you do not see it? I would much rather prefer the Super AMOLED Plus display.

    • DBK

      Because not everyone is as anal about the screen nor do they hold it up to their face all the time. Not to mention that those slight imperfections don’t drive them crazy.

      And on that note, it’s not that we don’t notice, it’s that it’s not noticeable enough to drive us crazy or be a real problem like everyone is making it out to be. If imperfections that minor really bother you that much, then it is you (and by you I mean everyone who thinks this, not you personally) that has the problem.

      • http://twitter.com/expertontech Tylar Overturf

        I wasn’t holding it up to my face. I was holding normal viewing distance for me (about 1 1/2 feet) I could see the pixels. If I am paying for a $300 phone then I want a good screen. Thats why the Nexus Prime will be far better for me.

        • Motofail

          Same here. I was a skeptic about how bad pentile could actually be. Then I gave it a thorough hands-on review for about half an hour. I literally had a headache at the end of that half hour. I have never experienced that with my OGD. Never.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=595730011 Nick Adamany

      Probably because Super AMOLED Plus is even worse, with how oversaturated and unrealistic the colors are.

      Samsung’s AMOLED panels need some serious color calibration.

    I hope its a sign the pentile is on the way out for good, they need a real screen. I would much rather have a light vibrent screen then caring how much a washed out one saves battery

    • DBK

      I hope not. Pentile is the only screen that is viewable outdoors. When the other screens can pull that off, then Pentile can be retired.

    Good, I’m tired of all this whining about this overblown issue. Go read a real tech site like Anantech if you want an unbiased overview of Motorola’s screens.

    As someone who’s owned both a Charge and a Bionic, I definitely prefer Motorola’s screens over SAMOLED+ screens. I definitely prefer correct color representation over the blown-out colors produced by Samsung screens, regardless of the fact that I may see a few pixels when I hold it up to my face.

        Also agreed. The pixelation in (and fugliness of) the background gave me a headache after a minute of looking at it. It negates whatever improvements there are with the letters.

          I would take the bionic screen over this new so called non-pentile anyday. I dont know kellex maybe you have terrible eyes but the 2nd pic looks awful!

            Seriously. And I don’t think Kellex is the only one with terrible eyes (based on these comments).

  • Pennywise

    Overall, the lettering looks cleaner in the top image.

    Black looks more black in the bottom image. The vertical of the P and the K look cleaner in the bottom image. However the angles, like in the K for example, look cleaner in the top image. All of the curves look cleaner in the top image (e, P, o, c). The pixels are less noticeable in the top image.

    The whole Pentile thing is really overblown, especially by Droid Life. While it may not be super oversaturated like the Super AMOLED screens, it definitely has its advantages with better battery life and superior visibility in the sun. The Bionic’s screen looks great to me. 

    • Ravnos CC

      I just love folks who still think the main gripe with pentile is color …. 

      • DBK

        To be honest the pixelation is minor at best. The pros with Pentile outweigh the cons (which are even really cons unless you are extremely anal about that sort of thing)..

        • DBK

          *aren’t

        • Ravnos CC

          Can I assume that you didn’t upgrade from a D1 or D2 with a beautiful screen to a Bionic with a terrible one?

          • DBK

            Went from a D2 to a D3 and now have a Bionic. No regrets.

          • Ravnos CC

            if you can honestly say the D2 – D3 was an “upgrade” in screen technology, then you need to check your prescription :(

          • DBK

            I never said it was. I care more about speed, performance and battery life in a phone (the most important aspects to be honest). The D2 screen looks a lot smoother than the other two, granted, but the other two are sharper and brighter. I could care less about the minor pixelation since you hardly notice it (even less so than in the beginning) after a using it a while.

            You want the phone to look pretty and take pretty photos, the get an icrap 4/5. You want it to perform and run like a beast. get a Bionic.

          • Keith Sumner

            how can you upgrade every < one year?

          • DeathfireD

            I almost went from a D1 to a Bionic. I walked in thinking the pentile blog posts on here where all overblown until I actually picked up the Bionic and noticed the black pixels myself from normal viewing distance. The display disgusts me. I’ll be sticking with my D1 until there’s a better phone with a better screen.

      Your right Michael way overblown.. really who walks around viewing their phone in “macro vision”

      • IbChiling

        I used to think the same way, until I got a replacement brand new Droid x2. I couldn’t use that POS anymore, the screen was so discustinly ugly that I ended up selling it after a week.
        If you can’t notice it, great for you. However, I think some of use are more sensible than others to it.
        In the same way that I can’t play a game if it’s not running at 60fps.
        +1 if Motorola starts using different screens.

        I say, great for all of you that have, “learned to accept or get used to” the pentil screen. For me, I refuse to walk in to Best buy and buy a HDTV with only 720p. Not bagging on it, but when I am dropping money on technology, I am looking for the technology of tomorrow, not last year. Don’t fool yourselves people, contract or not, you are paying 600+ for these phones. If it was a TV, would you pay that much for subpar components just because it is faster. If you say yes, go out and buy an alienware PC and hook it up to a CRT.

        • Robw

          What’s wrong with 720p? I can guarantee my 720p Pioneer Kuro plasma looks better than any 1080p tv at best buy right now.

            And I can guarantee you that statement is false with a properly calibrated TV. All they do at Best Buy is turn them on with factory defaults. You’re missing picture data that can’t be calibrated back.

          • Robw

            Shows how much you guys know about tv’s and picture quality lol, my Kuro is calibrated using DVE and the only tv’s I’ve seen with better pq are the Pioneer Kuro Elites. You need to do a little research about panel technology and how Pioneer set the bar for picture quality. I own the Pioneer PDP-4280HD, get on my level.

          I agree with Robw.  Unless you have a tv that’s over 70″ (which I’m not sure if they are even mass produced yet) you really won’t notice much of a difference between 720p and 1080p.  Trust me I worked on the HD trucks that produce the sporting events you see on tv.  Most of your everyday HD channels only show in 720p anyway.

          On my living room tv I added the Logitech Revue and even though my living room TV does 1080p, the Revue will only do 720p or 1080i so I left it on 720p and there is absolutely no difference in everyday viewing.

    I’ve an Atrix & the screen is good . I dont see the “checkered effect” even from a close distance (currently I’m laying down on my bed & holding the ATRIX within a 4cms of my eyes

    The only thing I noticed is that the Yellows are a bit darker or brownish (I’ve noticed the same on the SGS II) compared to my old Milestone (you might know it as the OG DROID)

            The grass is the worst case scenario since it’s more noticeable with green than any other color, still it doesn’t look that bad if you’re using it from a normal viewing distance instead of staring and looking for pixels.  Sure, for those with OCD I guess it looks terrible.

      I’m sure Stevie Wonder doesn’t have a problem with Pentile Matrix either…but for us normal folk who enjoy 3 subpixels per logical pixel, it’s unacceptable and insulting to call these screens qHD

      • DBK

        There is nothing normal about people who are extremely anal about minute differences in screen quality.

        • http://twitter.com/cantcurecancer Quentin Davis

          Believe whatever you want. While the Moto screens are pretty vibrant do okay for most users, it’s a weak point of their phones. It’s not a matter of opinion, it’s a FACT: pentile matrix only offers 2 subpixels per logical pixel, while SAMOLED+ and IPS/PLS displays offer 3 subpixels per logical pixel. That’s 33% more detail and 33% less empty space.

          If the Bionic/Atrix’s screens weren’t as grainy as you’re describing them as, there wouldn’t be articles upon articles made focusing on the subject. Wait until Anandtech publishes their full Bionic review…they’re going to rip Pentile Matrix a new one.

          • DBK

            And yet most users don’t even know what the hell a subpixel or logical pixel is. All you have done is prove my point. Only the most anal (and the most technical) of people would know about that or even notice it. Hell I am one of those and still think the screen is fine. I have had no problems with it.

          • Anonymous

            I am not anal and can see a clear difference with the atrix and bionic screen compared to the nexus s. Yes I want my phone to run like a beast but I don’t want to look at the screen and think why is the screen so bad…

            I guess I just disproved your point. I know crap about the pixels but can see the difference clearly.

            Props to Moto if they are using better screens. Now just unlock the bootloaders and I would be one of many users who would be coming back to Moto phones.

            I am not a Moto hater, I actually want them to be what they once were. They were on the right track with the Droid and screwed everything up with the DROID2. If the droid2 came with an unlocked bootloader it would have sold so much better…

            You may like the current screens and many others may too but there are plenty of people who dont…you don’t need to put other people down to feel secure in your preferences.

      They should recall the X2 but not because of the screen (though it does blow for photos & fast action games).  The X2 is the buggiest, laggiest, most 3G signal dropping piece of crap I have used since my old Treo 700p.  Out of my OG Droid, Droid X, and the wife’s Droid Pro, the X2 is definitely the worst of the crop.  And I think the vast majority of its problems are due to the horrible software on it.   There’s nothing inherently wrong (AFAIK) with the hardware.

      Yea the first atrix

    Wow, the difference is astounding…  Its a shame the Bionic didn’t receive this despite its delays.  If it did (and the camera was better), I wouldn’t be waiting to see what’s around the corner with my OGD, like I am now.

      I agree 100%. As it is I will rock the OG droid a while longer

      I can honestly say the two things that kept me from giving the Bionic a run would be the screen and the awful camera. My OGD is barely holding on and pissing me off on a regular basis… but what is coming in the next month or so will be a HUGE jump in tech so it’s worth the wait.

        Maybe a huge jump from your OD, but barely a hop from the Bionic.

        • Motofail

          ICS, better screen, bigger screen, better battery life, better processor, better gpu, better camera, NFC…

          I’d say that is more than a “hop”

            Hey, can you pull that magic crystal ball out of your ass and let me know if I win the lottery next week?

          • Anonymous

            My crystal ball says no. But it does say you’ll post 1,587 comments defending Moto products in the future.

            Your crystal ball is broken.  Btw, acting like little crybabies and spewing unfounded false hyperbole while going on anti-Motorola and Bionic rants all the time gets old.  Go shove your HTC or GS2 devices of choice up your asses and stfu.

        That awful screen and camera are two major negatives that have me sticking to my OGD as well.  I’m now definitely going to try the iPhone 5, especially since 4G isn’t yet available where I live.  I’ve been an Android user since G1 launch day so this change will be “dramatic” for me LOL.  I’ll switch back to Android in a heartbeat if the Prime is a killer phone.

          I upgraded from an OG Droid to the Bionic and the Bionic’s camera is far, far better. The screen isn’t bad either, especially when you don’t hold it in front of your face looking for pixels or patterns. You get used used to it.

        … and the headphone jack noise problem. Hopefully a software update can fix that.

      I give you the cam part, it could it been better

    Wow, I did not realize that the Motorola devices had such horrible color reproduction. My Nexus S has spoiled me.

      Do think the cartoon-like over-saturated colors on your Nexus S represent accurate color production?

  • Motofail

    Maybe they should re-release the Bionic with this updated screen tech? Harken back to the Incredible 1 switcheroo…

    • Hurfdurf

      “updated screen tech”

      “Updated” through reversion to not being goddamn PenTile.

      • Motofail

        I was fielding it as a question to get some feedback… not questioning the idea ;)

    • Nevelos85

      I swear guys the screen is not the worst part of this phone its the camera that’s bad

        Yea i agree that’s what the bionic is missing to be perfect. If you play with the lighting the pics will come outnice

    • Ravnos CC
