i had this issue as well and i sold my note and i feel lucky i did...
The same thing with GALAXY S3 - just try it. I'm amazed how quality-inconsistent displays Samsung produces. I compared my SGS3 with SGS2 and have to say that SGS2 screen is superior in everything except of course the resolution.
This is also what happens with the "newest brightest" Galaxy S3 - just go to SGS3 forum on XDA and you'll see. I'm wondering why none of the review I've read mentioned any problems like these, it looks like Samsung prepares special phone units and tests them before sending for a review.
As for the S3 many people report black dots "ink marks" visible when looking at dark materials (videos, pics) in a dark environment.
And this is why Apple choose not to go with AMOLEDS but rather IPS LCDs. AMOLED is not prepared for prime time yet.
i faced the same problem in my galaxy s2 in past with default gingerbread OS ... but when i installed the new rom inthat ,,, problem solved ... it was a software problem in my gs2 ... Anyways i think Galaxy note may have the software problem too and by upgrading it im sure problem will surely solved
My note 's screen z good but when i click pics on light background with rays or reflections around due to sunrays, they get superimposed in the image n are clearly seen in the pics which does not happen in any other lcd screen phones....
The love for amoled and oversaturated colours have confused a lot of people from telling whats right or wrong. Amoled is pure crap just like samsung phones. Sony rules
thats typical samsung for you, first they attract people with good specs and features and then they repel those people with the ugly performance of those feature rich devices
i agree i have been noticing this since i bought this. ..but did not have the clue. . Even in HD videos. .
i Bought mine the day it came out and still no problems. The phone gets better and better
I don't have ANY problem with my Note...
I tested ICS 4.0.3, 4.0.4 and work perfect, but, for me is problem V-SYNC in browsing and animations from ICS... (newer firmwares don't have V-Sync)
Now I'm back to GB 2.3.6, browsing is much better!
I havent see any problem in my note screen, anyway, i still thinking is the best phone in this moment, i dont change it for any other, may be for Galaxy Note 2 in next september or october...
