What's wrong with 180 pixel density?? I know its lower than my nokia 5220 which has 200 pixel density. So what?
Would you rather see a blank screen?
Would you rather get a 192 pixel density and the screen overheats?
Be grateful with what you have especially if you own this Live. Do not compare with Arc, Neo or Ray. They have much difference even with the price.

So just a tip, root it for your own use and then unroot it whenever you want to have your phone serviced using your warranty.

Just make sure to use the same tool when unrooting your device.

To those who are confused with the display of this phone, here's my point of view:

LWW TFT LCD isn't that really as clear as with ST15i, since it has 180 PPI, than 190+ PPI with ST15i. Also screen contrast is not really as sharp as with ST15i but still it has sharp and bright colors. This means that colors isn't distorted (meaning not WASHED out), its display is FAR more better than GALAXY ACE & Y.

Before the Live with Walkman I previously purchased an Xperia Mini ST15i and it's much vaunted "Bravia Mobile engine". The best thing in sliced bread you may think, and yes it's screen does look pretty. Problem is, the phone itself had a serious factory defect. It either overheated quickly leading to all sorts of touch screen errors, or it simply shut down by itself for no apparent reason. I had two Xperia Mini replacements and both were plagued with these problems. I simply gave up on the ST15i and had it replaced with the LwW WT19i.

The LwW doesn't overheat, the touch screen doesn't malfunction, and it never involuntarily shuts down. Oh and by the way, the LCD isn't really that bad either. Saying it's "the worst" is just plain inaccurate and misleading. IMO, the difference is negligible.

You want a better screen? Then by all means get an Xperia Mini ST15i. The screen does look nice... if you can get it to work. Don't believe me? Google "ST15i problems".
