Have you actually ever seen the display? Or just going based on reviews? You will not notice it, the pixel density is that good.
It's not a great display. If you view, say, the desktop version of NYTimes.com on both the GN and the iPhone 4S, the text is more legible on the 4S even though it's smaller and lower resolution. The GN is also not very even brightness at low brightness levels (a white screen has a kind of mottled appearance, vs. completely even lighting on an LCD screen). It also has garishly oversaturated colors on photos and videos, including orange skin tones. And many (though not all) Galaxy Nexus screens show strange color casts (the one I had had a sickly yellow-green color cast at low brightness levels).
IMO, this screen makes too many compromises for the one advantage of having outstanding black levels.

I own this phone and, though I have many complaints about it, the screen is definitely not one of them. IMO, anybody saying the iphone has a better screen is guilty of fanboyism. The Nexus' screen is larger, more vibrant, and higher resolution than the iphone 4s. Simple as that.
If you want negatives, look to the radio. The reception on this thing sucks, plain and simple. They say they'll fix it with an update. I'll believe it when I see it. Another issue is that there is no memory card slot for expandable storage, which would've been a really nice feature to see on a phone that was supposedly designed for Android developers.
Buy it or don't buy it, the choice is yours. Just don't get too hung up about the screen; it's beautiful.

Feel sorry for those buyers. You'll get an empty box or wait a month for them to ship. I will never buy from them again.

The Nexus' screen is larger, more vibrant, and higher resolution than the iphone 4s. Simple as that. It's as not as simple as that. The Pentile display lowers the effective resolution, so that the 1280x720 Galaxy Nexus display is not the same resolution as a 1280x720 LCD display, though there's no practical way to determine a conversion value between one and the other. However, again, I have had several people agree that small text is more legible on the smaller, theoretically lower resolution iPhone 4S display.
And, yes, while the Galaxy Nexus has a wider color gamut than the iPhone 4S, it's at the expense of accurate color, instead oversaturating all pics and videos. This is not opinion, this is empirical: Galaxy Nexus color calibration instructions

I've had this phone now for a few weeks and absolutely love it. It is easy to root and has a large development community. It is blazing fast, and videos look amazing. I can stream full uncompressed videos at 720p off my home server. I haven't had any issues with the phone so far. I did buy a one year warranty through Newegg with I bought it.

Had the phone for a couple months and it's been great. I'm a root your phone and install cyanogenmod kind of guy and I haven't felt the slightest desire to root the nexus, it's been 100% bug free and smooth. Battery life is a full day with a couple hours of using music player, internet, and calls. My cell reception is SIGNIFICANTLY better than my old phone (G2X) with Tmobile. As for the screen, seriously, it's a very nice high res display. Nexus v Iphone is probably splitting hairs for people who have weird screen related insecurity issues unless your world revolves around minor color/clarity differences.
My only complaint is that this phone is a beast. Too big. Not a dealbreaker but I will go smaller next time. And I guess the speaker could be louder, but I have thought that on every phone I've owned since my last Motorola flip in 2005.

Minor color/clarity differences? Dude, people look Snooki orange on the Galaxy Nexus. Maybe you're the type who connected his analog cable box to his flat panel TV and thought he was getting HD.

I just got this phone (Nexus GT-I9250) and it is awesome. I didn't have to do anything. Overall I am impressed so far. I am still 'researching'. Any suggestions/tips/tweeks will greatly be appreciated.
