I have an iPad 3 and i didn't think the retina display would be a big deal, and thought it was some sort of marketing thing, but it is amazing.

I'm just curious how is the vita screen? I haven't yet to hold one in person. And i know you can't really tell from videos off the web

It looks great to me but compated to retina display it feels inferior.

Altugh vita is great for software and hardware, the screen quality isnt as good but the games are way better than most ipad shovelware stuff, and buttons and analogs sticks are way better than touchscreen gaming.

It's pretty nice. It's comparable to a retina display, though not quite as nice as the iPad 3 or some of the newer cell phones.

Some of those Google tablets look sweet, too. Better than retina I believe if you look at the specs.

not even close to retina. It has black splotches all over it, between refreshes, it's not even HD!

Good, but not as amazing. PPI is about 100 less, it has mura, and the resolution is lower.

Yes, those black splotches on a completely black loading screen while viewing it in the pitch black are really distracting.

Don't bother with Shadowfxd2. He is dissapointed with his vita purchase and the only way he can cope is not to go on with his life, but to endlessly troll the vita boards night and day making every topic as hopeless, pointless and empty as his life is.

Neither are technically HD. Overall not much of a difference.
Regardless, I use my iphone 5 and vita on a daily basis and if i were to nitpick, the iphone beats the vita in every aspect of quality except size--albeit relative in any case. Some like a smaller screen, others--like myself prefer a bigger screen such as the vita's.

He's not wrong though. In fact, stargazer is closer to being wrong. Despite being an OLED screen, the Vita's black levels aren't THAT deep. The black splotches are perfectly noticeable, even when not in a pitch black room. It's a genuine problem, and my GS3 doesn't have it.
