    Is there anyway to increase the storm screen/video quality so it looks like the bold?

    yeah turn your "super duper graphics accelerator" on. Its in the options somewhere. I'm just kidding. but on a serious note the answer is No, as the saying goes, it is what it is. I haven't seen video on the bold, but besides streaming video, IMO videos play very well on the storm

    That's like saying "Can I make my CRT look like a LCD?" The answer is: buy a Bold.

    If I'm not mistaken they are the same size 480x360, but the Bold is more compact. Similar to VGA and qVGA, but all the DVDs I put on mine look very good, except for the light around the edges.

    Both the storm and the bold have a 320 x 480 screen resolution. The quality should be the same. I have many videos on my storm and I find the quality to be great.

    EDIT: Ah TheChampJT beat me.....

    same resolution for both, but the bold is a smaller screen so it looks sharper

    Wrong, Bold is 480 X 320, Storm is 480 X 360.

    Either way, cant have a screen that large with great resolution, if you want smaller go Bold, but the Storm has one of the best screens Ive seen, the iPhone is great, but with the Storm on VZW what more could you ask for

    The thing that really hurts about this whole comment is, there is a graphics acceletator built into the chipset.... Just not supported by the 4.7.0.xxx OS....

    IIRC, the Bold also has the LCD fused directly to the underside of the glass top layer of the screen, which gives it the visual impression of being sharper and more in-focus.

    QFT... They're both using completely different display panels....... The Bold is called the Bold specifically because it uses a high contrast, extra bright screen.
