I've read far and wide on different websites and forums on this issue and the complaints seem to be getting more heated and more widespread with each passing day. I guess part of the discontent is because of what people interprete as nonchalance on the part of Nokia administration trying to ignore the problem.
I've always felt/hoped the tint was manageable as long as it stayed at a minor level, like yours and Maverick's. But at the same time, I've seen screen shots of tinted displays that were simply unbearable. If this were any other phone I'd ditch it and go for something else, but try as I may I cannot find a phone with comparable features at a similar price.
All I can do now is pray real hard that I get one with an ok display. AND make sure I read the fine print on the warranty.
Deen, 04 Apr 201150 sms? Now I see why you were dreaming of e7. It would have been the perfect phone for you.
... moreHello Deen..
I'm a C7 user since January. Yes, I have the purple tint issue but it's not a major one. It doesn't really affect me in my routine use. But, while watching movies, I can see purple-pink-brown patches in dark areas of the video. That is when I come to notice about the issue.
However, there are certain phones where the issue is quite explicit.. Those phones show up half of the analogue clock as completely brown or dark purple.
This is an excellent phone, with so many features loaded. I couldn't find any other phone within this price range with these many features and an AMOLED screen.
Now, people here who are cribbing about the tint issue should know that all AMOLED screens have a tint. Some have blue, some have a yellowish off-white, some have a red/brown, while others have a purple/pink.
You can see it on wikipedia that all OLED displays have a tint that gives an apparent artificial saturation to one or the other colour.
I do not say that there's no issue with AMOLEDs on N8's & C7's..
All I want to say that if it's too much of a Pink/Purple shade, get it replaced. If your problem is not at the WORST stage, Nokia might not even touch your phone, let alone REPLACING the display.
PS: must go through this link and read all about OLED technology. And stop cribbing, you can bare with it quite easily!

I'm in Nigeria too and I have some questions for you as a prospective c7 buyer. How do you feel about the purple tint? Its actually worrying me a lot. Do you know anyone personally that owns a c7? Does any of them have the tint? I know two people with n8's but they bought theirs last year, so they dont have the purple tint (though they have freezing/restarting issues).
What's happening? I couldnt get the right volume in my new c7just bought even with loudspeaker on for music and radio. less than my old n95. the headset is even loose. what do I do?

If i read you right, you're looking for reasons to buy a c7 instead of a c6-01. Well, from what you've said, it seems your best bet is the c6-01. Sorry!
Personally, i feel the c7 is superior only if you consider its FM transmitter, larger internal memory and larger screen. However, in your case, since you dont want an fm transmitter and the 2gig memory card that comes with the c6-01 is more than enough for you, then the only plus left on the c7 is it's larger screen.
Comparing the two screens (from user opinions and reviews), the c7 is larger, better for gaming and typing text, while the c6-01 is clearer and sharper and doesn't come with purple tint issues. But I believe the touch sensitivity is the same. So unless you're a gamer and you do a lot of typing, the c7 doesn't really have much for you.
I'm currently faced with the same choice and i've chosen the c7. Cuz unlike you, i have A LOT of mp3s (music, audio books, etc) i intend to store in the phone so a 2gig card is not enough for me; and since i'll be using it in my car, the fm transmitter will come in very handy. And finally, i've been using an OMNIA Lite (roughly same size as c6-01)for over a year and the screen is starting to feel cramped to me. So for me the c7's larger screen is a very worthy upgrade, purple tint or no purple tint.
Good luck! I guess your head is telling you c6-01 but your heart is screaming c7. Not sure if i helped you at all.
p.s: When you buy, make sure the one you get has the applicable country warranty. I hear Nokia Care Centers are pretty strict about that.

C6-01 clear black display & class 33 of gprs. Excellent advantages cos i luv browssing. Thouh it lacks d giga byte range of internal memory, smaller screen display & who cares about d Fm transmitter. I guess i'll miss d more sensitive C7 touch screen. Else, can someone pls convince me why i shld go for a wider purple tint screen of c7 and a 8gig internal memory that i do nt intend to use more than 1gig. D picture Of C7 is my laptop wallpaper n i luv it but why pay a little more for almost d same spec of c6-01. I need to justify d LITTLE MORE REASON.
