Default S50 Screen better than Stiletto?

Maybe it's just me, but when I compare the screens on my Stiletto and S50, I think the wallpaper images look much sharper on the S50. Also the channel logos seem larger on the S50. What say you?

I say I don't think it matters. It all boils down to stability and reliability and screen logos and images don't mean much if you can't use it. I don't think the backgrounds on the S50 are sharper, I think they just didn't have the blue flame running down the side of them like the Stiletto does.

I am 100% satisified with my display on my Stiletto. My one and only gripe is that the display auto-dims in the car cradle and this makes it difficult to read in broad daylight, but it works GREAT for night driving. I think this should have been a user configurable option to turn the auto dimiming on or off.

I think it's just that white smoke effect that they put over the wallpaper that makes it look ugly. Besides, on the S50 a lot of us had those screens customized. My S50 displays were much better than the "Stock" pictures. I wish someone could help us get to the display files. Once we can find them we can replace them with our own.
