AnonD-4734, 31 Mar 2011how long does it take for the purple tint to show up? have been using c7 for nearly 2 months n... moreIts hard to say when the tint will appear or whether it'll appear at all. I dont remember my 4 month old C7 having it when I got it, yet mine has a reddish tint on the lock screen clock now, and it has been there for atleast 2 months. It's not causing me any problems in other areas such as videos or images (the test images display as gray, white and black), and I've updated to PR 1.2 too.
As far as I can tell, the issue is inherent to the screen, and I dont expect differences to occur over time, you may notice differences just by changing the brightness level of your screen. If I could remember if my display had the issue from the beginning, it would have been helpful, but I dont, and in any case, I can definitely confirm that its not worsening, even after PR 1.2 (I actually think it looks better lol), but in the absence of a proper response from Nokia, what we're talking about are only opinions and speculations. One thing is clear,your phone either has the issue or not, and there's little we can do in terms of a fix, so if the issue is really bad then take it to NCP/NCC or else enjoy the device instead of worrying about it. Cheers.

AnonD-1775, 01 Apr 2011im really upset...purple and brown colors are appearing....maybe our problem persisted after updating to pr 1.2..cos i'm definitely sure it's was not there in early firmware...keep me posted..
Its just now that i realized that while using the camera, you can change the resolution from 8 mp to 6 mp by pinching the screen (like pinch to zoom on pictures). same thing with capturing videos, from HD to TV high quality. LOL. so stupid.

why, 31 Mar 2011i just posted my probem to the main discussion board...i'm sad...Well Jaypee, let's just wish Nokia will come out with some clear answers. They are kinda silent on the issue and eventhough they acknowledged the problem and posted a bulletin, it would be nice if they will tell us more about the source of the issue.

Maybe it would be more helpful if you guys post your problems on the link below and let Nokia know that you guys think you got the purple problem from the recent update.

AnonD-1225, 31 Mar 2011This is what i found on the NOKIA DISCUSSION FORUM. '1. Nokia have acknowledged the problem... moreThanks ShanNan. I had read this on some blogs but thanks for outlining it here. What I had heard is that Nokia got the displays from the suppliers and used their own drivers which were faulty and that the issue can be resolved only by changing the entire screen hardware even though its a display driver issue. Seems to have affected the entire early lots. Some devices seem to be affected less than others, and I hope the issue doesnt worsen over time. Thanks again and Cheers.
maddi , 30 Mar 2011is there any one tell me that nokia E72 is better or nokia C7????u using what phone right now?
AnonD-1775, 31 Mar 2011guys i just have a question, once u took your handset to NCC (problem is the purple tint issue... morey need to pay? ur c7 still under warranty for at least 10 more months, right?
