Too bad really I LOOVE Android devices, but this can be painful for Galaxy 2 sales, I'm worry now, I want to get a new Android devices (not offense for Nokia users I like more Android for now) but with this kind of errors I will think twice for a Samsung phone, at least, until they fix this problem, and they need to recall too many phones to fix this :(

I thought that n8's purple tint was a small problem but it resulted in loss of so many sales including the use of symbian rather than android. Now this problem will also grow large after some days just like the n8

> In reply to [deleted post]ya i know that gsmarena told that its a small issue but n8 too has purple tint like this has yellow tint, which was also unnoticable for most of the times but still it had its impacts on the sales. People want perfect phone with less bugs or defects if the specs are also low they won't care, all they need is a solid good phone with no bugs. And this is also going to be a major issue cuz this problem can't be fixed by the software update as its a defect in hardware. All you need to do is to increase the brightness level to hide the tint but the AMOLED screen's life may be shortened.

this is a total mess up in my opinion, and its actually quite apparent in my phone, I am returning mine, as this a fault, no one should keep their phone till they sort it out.
go and get your money back or get it sorted, its totally unacceptable.
