Only when I'm in direct sunlight do I need to pump the brightness up. But when I do, it's amazingly bright. I've never noticed any colour bleed, or any other issues with the screen. That said, the software side of things is anything but flawless. With the 2.2 Froyo update, there's an issue where you can only access the first 2.2GB (how's that for irony) of internal storage using mass storage mode, and it does seem to get easily bogged down at times. Plus, there's Samsung's penchant for holding back OS updates, and even retracting most of them when they are released due to bugs.
Personally, I'd be hunting down a Nexsus S right now to avoid the whole software side of things, getting OS updates directly from Google.

As I've posted, the G2X is Tegra 2 (dual core = fast), has HDMI out, capable of 1080p video capturing (and playback), supports microSD, etc. The Nexus S has none of these things.
I don't mind the plain-Jane Android implementation. I was going to do a bit of my own software customization anyway, and probably dump 2.2 for 2.3 soon after purchasing regardless. But I'll definitely check out your thread in case I'm missing something.
