It's not getting any worse. For me, I'm satisfied with what I bought and really unaffected on this issue as it's really not easily seen. If it is a hardware issue, then how can a simple application like light control fix it? In my opinion, Nokia has tweaked some brightness settings and can be easily fixed with some update. Let's just wait and see what happens as some users are already stepping up regarding this issue. AMOLED problem or not, I've no regrets. Frankly, I think buying a samsung wave over this phone would be more regretful. who agrees?

I'm crossing my fingers that pr 2.0 will have this issue fixed.
Does nokia c7 support video in avi format? If yes, then how to play a video of avi format in nokia c7. Please help me I have bought this phone 2 days ago.

Btw, in the settings of that app, don't you try to change the primary screen light to OFF.. you'll regret doing that ( I did! Good thing auto start is not turned on, so I just turned off my unit) .
Setting the brightness on light control at 75 would be fine and shows no discoloration. I'm not using that app all the time though as it eats up battery faster. I just turn it on when watching movies, playing games, etc. Good luck again dude.

"...remember that Android OS is based on Java..."
You are a bit wrong - Android is based on Linux, not Java. These are the apps that are written over a Java core by those lazy "software developers" who prefer not to bother with low-level programming. So basically Android is doomed due to this approach - develepment of fancy and eye-catching apps that demand a LOT of CPU power to perform simple tasks.

Nobody I know who's updated to PR 1.2 has any issues though I have read about some people having issues. I'm waiting for PR 2.0 too, cos the upgrade seems to finally make the C7 what it should have been from the beginning. Cheers.
why, 31 Mar 2011hey man..you have the purple tint issue right??why don't you bring your phone to NCC...i read ... moresad to say, I think you also have that purple tint issue. You shouldn't see brown or purple colors on that test image. Instead those colors should be gray to dark gray. try setting your clock to analog then slide lock your phone, then press the menu key..if half of the clock is purple in the setting of 50% brightness...we have the same issue dude. I've no plans to bring it
to NCC as mine is not that bothersome (barely noticeable). I've seen 10 posts of different persons bringing their phone to NCC and ended up having their screen replaced but still with the same issue. I guess I'll just have to wait for a better fix.I'm positive that it is just a software issue involving the ambient light sensor. I'm using light control app by the way while watching movies as it bypasses the light sensor. While that application is turned on..I don't see any of that purple discoloration even in the clock, test images, and videos.

Thanks again. what country are you from anyway?just wondering if those bugs depend on which country you are from.
