Its confirmed the older bionic phones have a different screen (by a verizon rep) wildman once again you are wrong. what a sham take a crummy phone change features play like it never happened! wow! the new screen started appearing around December after a lot of complaints from the old ones.

That is exactly the answer, PenTile screens quality can differ from device to device since the way the technology designed....  Since the new device quality is better I am not seeing the concern on your side...  The picture can very depending on software installed or custom settings, I am guessing you haven't wiped the original device, maybe something you have installed may have a graphics interface that isn't optimized.

Without checking both devices it is simply a bit difficult to explain the exact reason for the differences because there is a number of veribles that can make a difference.

Care to share the link to this information because I haven't seen any post that reported a screen change and by the way you must did not read the post I supplied, PenTile screens are known to have different quality on different devices because the technology is flawed...  If they did replace the screens that is good but i haven't seen the post of the change.

You have your view of why the quality is different and I supplied info to explain this but I dont see you supplying any information before you go and say something it wrong..  As usual a person dont agree so they report they have to be wrong..  Read on this forum that also speaks about the PinTile quality... http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid-bionic/395355-pentile-screen-really-bad.html

Whatever floats your boat but I just Goggled and did not find one report that stated the screen was replaced..  If I am wrong I will admit to it but under this situation I do not believe your answer is correct but the OP accepted the answer and that all that matters..
