Strange, i never had any problems like this with my European Galaxy Note. The problem might be affecting US Notes only? As they are physically different from European ones.

Coming to Galaxy S3, I can confirm that this is non-existent on S3's display. :)

I don't have such an issue with my note... never did!
It came with 2.3.6 GB ... I recently upgraded it to ICS 4.0.3
no issues at all... I'll be downloading the 4.0.4 later this week
Amazing phone!

I always had this issue on my Nokia C7. This is a consistent problem in Nokia AMOLED screens. However, this wasn't there in my Galaxy S, Galaxy S II or my current Galaxy S III. According to what I've seen, I've not noticed this in HTC One S or HTC Desire. Don't know why Galaxy Note has this issue. According to me, this really is a software issue and not really a display issue. However, why such things never happen on a non-AMOLED displays. :/

Well i tried what was instructed in the xda forum. But isnt it true for all amoled screens? I looked at a friend's galaxy nexus, gradation of colora not really smooth. But it is not a major issue for me.

I've got the note, got the same issues. ICS didn't fix it. One of the big issues of this nice phone.

Hell yeah! That's why I sold mine.

Samsung's pushing the display technology much...but failed. And it's only NOW you brought it up?
