umm it doesnt affect every device! i got a note and it runs perfect! just tried it now, even with a FHD movie and no washed or dark problems at all!
running 4.0.4 with no glitches whatsoever!
iam sorry but the device on the video has 4 captive touch keys while the galaxy note has one middle physical key and 2 captive keys
Sammy is "in" these days so people will still sell their kidneys to get one even if there are display issues, lags and bloatware, battery drains, underwhelming UI, heating issues, slow upgrades, copyright infringements, wifi glitches, cheap materials, disgusting designs, reception problems, device fragmentation and yeah "explosions", ofcourse! MAY GOD GIVE THE BRAINS TO THE BRAIN WASHED! AMEN!
Sammy makes great washing machines btw. No glitching and clipping while displaying water temperature.
and Samsung now leading the world . . this should now be considered the gold standard
SAMSUCK has got everything goin for them.... people are realising this problem now when they already sold millions of it.... and are going to launch note2 very soon
aodxxl, 13 Jul 2012I didnt quite understand what to read from the test they had there. I installed quick pic , do... moreit means you have the so called moderate crush. Which means you are affected too... :-(
Somebody said that only 2% is affected!! how does he know that? did he do a poll? or is an official number from sammy? Gosh!!!
Some people are really so irresponsible, telling things out of reality.
According to polls in xda the number is far greater than just 2%... Samsung should recall all notes.
I think GSMarena should make users aware of this much much earlier. Next time please be more quick, less than 9 months... Anyway thanks
Well I work with mobiles and haven't heard this. Why do you insist on saying "phoneblet" - it sounds stupid and I hope it doesn't catch on.
this is actually true guys i have the s2 and the s3 and the note but the s2 doesnt do this coz I think its coz it uses the real RGB instead of pentile because my s3 and note does this but my s2 doesnt :/ i guess samsung should have gone with super amoled plus
the gradients come out pretty poor in dark areas, and there's indeed an interesting black clipping effect sometimes, both of which I already noticed since I got my Note. and the pentile is annoying when color red pops up.
but the screen behaves pretty well in most other conditions, so I wouldn't say it's in any way a deal breaker.
Its sad but true... my note just went on a mode where the screen went into all colorful horizontal stripes... like a tv screen that freezes. I had ro press the power button for a long time and than the screen went blank and to the lock screen mode... its a month old my G-Note
Ov, 12 Jul 2012Just use a proper video player with proper codes LOL.no matter what video player you use it'll produce the same issue.
I have run the "test" XDA suggest to run and my Note has no issues with it. However it is running the 4.0.4 update, so that might be why. (however didn't see anything when it had 4.0.3 in it either
First, it's NOT an inherit AMOLED problem; my galaxy s1 has perfectly even darks and blacks, and can just barely be perceived as on in a pitch-black room.
The galaxy s3 (or several so far at least) have a similar problem with blacks looking washed-out/grey and having darker "ink spots" visible in low-light situations.
It's a bad batch, or a stupid manufacturing/programming mistake..I've seen good Notes next to bad ones.
well it happens on mine. i tot it was just on the quality of a vid but all the same thing happens even i watch other movies. glitches on dark scenes.
ohh gosh!! I knew it since I brought the device 4 months back. But no service center attends to such issues. I am damn angry now and definitely would want to go for a replacement now. My videos used to get washed out completely which some dark spots when displaying darker shades watching videos. At last somebody caught it. Thanks!!!
I had this issue from beginning with my galaxy note. but i thought it was with all amoleds :o
it's an amoled screen guys. It's very normal not to be able to compete an lcd screen in low light scenes. I can't understand what's the fuss about.
-ph-, 13 Jul 2012This severe black clipping issue actually affects nearly every GNote to a certain extent -- bo... moreErrr...I do not believe a store would allow customers to "try out" the whole inventories of a particular model - unless the store is very small and only have 2 units in stock.
Don't believe everything you read on th net.
