No, its not pentile. I think it looks fine, definitely not as crisp as the iPhone 4S but I like having the larger screen, I also had the Lumia 800 and never had any issues with that.
I think the screen looks great, especially with the clear black technology. Definitely plenty bright enough.
I'd say if you are concerned why not go to AT&T and check one out yourself?

The Lumia 900 uses an RGB Matrix AMOLED, so it's not pentile. Equivalent (basically) to an SAMOLED Plus screen, although the ClearBlack makes it better in bright light situations by reducing and reflecting glare away from the screen.

I was gonna say the worst part about the screen is the over saturated colors. But since you're rocking a Galaxy, you won't notice. I returned my Lumia for this exact reason. Here's hoping HTC puts out a smaller SLCD2 equiped device when Apollo rolls out. Titan is too big.

This is my first Super AMOLED screen, but one thing that I noticed are whites are really dim on this. I'm attributing this to the ClearBlack technology, not sure if it's a Super AMOLED thing. That said, the contrast is still striking making the dim whites pop still if that makes sense. It's pretty amazing using this thing in direct sunlight too.
From my experience, comparing it to the iPhone4S screen (which, imo, has a grayish haze on it all the time), the screen on this just pops. I think in some reviews they describe the tiles as almost floating in appearance, and I know in one other review, they said it looked like the tiles were literally printed on the glass similar to how magazines look. I know I haven't gotten tired of just staring at the screen.

The screen quality on the Lumia 900 is great. Even though it doesn't have the pixel density of the iPhone 4s (which makes text look great) the Clear Black technology makes the overall display look great and video really pop. You know how Samsung HD TV's look great because their screens are so black and have high contrast? To me the Lumia looks kind of like that, a deep black background with beautiful video. Watching a podcast looks like you're watching a little HD TV.

Yeah. Would be nice if they fixed thr lack of oleophobic coating, or the inconsistency of it from phone to phone. I have my 3d lumia. My first two (a launch cyan and then a white) seemed to have some oleophobic coating on them, but then they HD other issues. This third cyan phone...a used MS employee phone I bought off eBay (could tell from box), that is flawless performance wise, has no oleophobic ness to the screen. I've been trying to figure if it's had as replacement screen or what. The rqisd lip around the screen feels different than te other two. It is not the thin, sharp, flexible metal that my other two were.it has some dents in it, but they retained the black color, aren't shiny silver like the dents I got on my others.
