    HD TV's are 1080 x 720 or standard HD is 720 x 480. I could never tell the difference between the two personally.

    So if this phone is 800 x 480, isn't that still HD?

    Full HD is 1920x1080 (1080p) and 1280x720 (720p). 800x480 is lower than both and closer to SD resolution with a wider aspect ratio.

    I was getting a TV for my daughter. 1080p was the rage 720p was one or two years older. I found after doing research that you would need at least a 55" sceen to maybe see the difference. Now that is TV and these are phones. I think everyone makes too much of pixel density. The answer is simple go to AT&T and hold a 920 and an 820 side by side at normal viewing distance with the same screen shot or photo and decide for yourself.

    I am going to do this even though I will probably get an 810. I also have to check out this ridiculous weight issue with the 920.

    It should be interesting. I'm going to take a look at the phone in a couple of weeks and compare the screen to that of my iPhone 4. I know it's not HD, but it's probably still really good.

    see if you can compare them outside or in bright light the 810 should do well there.

    Absolutely. I can tell you right now that it's impossible to see my iPhone's screen in direct sunlight. I have to shield it with my hand. It'll be nice having a phone that doesn't require that. ;)
