[deleted post]Are you suggesting that we should let Nokia get away with this and just hide the defect and move on? Hiding the defect and making it less noticeable is not the same as fixing the defect.
Getting the defect eliminated is Nokia's job. Nokia should start supplying the NCCs with defect free screens but sadly, they are not doing that. It has been 5 months since the news of this defect broke out and Nokia admitted the defect but there is still no fix to it. Nokia's first reaction to this issue was denial and they even banned the person who broke this news out for a few days on Nokia's official help forums.
The first person who broke this issue and brought it into the blogosphere has now moved on to a Galaxy S2. He went through a total of 10 N8 in less than 3 months and each one of them have the purple defect.
Nokia should be held accountable for this and the defect should be fixed and not hidden.
well deserved applause for this nokia phone it has given everything which any body want from an extreme phone
but nokia must also launch sony ericcsion like gamer series of this phone

hi. Frnds. I'm using this phone since last 2 month. It's amazing product from NOKIA. It's includes all the things that we need. Best to buy. Really.
AnonD-40, 10 May 2011You risk burn-in of static images on your AMOLED screen if you go on high brightness for exten... moreRight now I have the brightness at 85% and the screen hides the purple tint and it will not get burned too. It is far from full brightness and there is no way the screen will be burned. Even at 75 or 80% of screen brightness still manages to hide the majority of the purple tint...
So, there is absolutely no risk to disable the light sensor, BECAUSE you don't have to put it on maximum level to hide out the tint.
Just adjust the brightness level 4 (80%) and it will hide the purple tint, + the screen will look a little more crisp...
I am using nokia n8 for: photography, gaming, panorama shots, web browsing, mass memory storage, Movie player, Music, wake-up calls, sometims flashlight and of course reading mails.
its really fast and user friendly, best mobile in the market

i thi... moreIf you want the best handset on the market today then it's the Galaxy S II. The reviews on the Galaxy S II gave it an excellent mark. It received 5 stars from techradar.com.
"The Samsung Galaxy S2 has not only set a new bar for smartphones in 2011; it's smashed the bar, recreated it in its own image and put it out of reach of the competition."

You want something like this on your AMOLED screen just to hide the purple defect?
Nokia should provide its NCCs with the properly calibrated replacement screens instead of risking your screen to even more trouble by throttling your brightness to high levels just to hide the defect.
As Ray said, installing third party apps that controls the brightness and used for the purpose of hiding the defect isn't an ideal solution. It won't fix the problem as it will only hide it and you're also opening yourself up to getting a burn-in problem.

Than answer this:
How come the users of Galaxy s, iPhone 4, C6-01, E7, Xperia X10 and many other phones have their screen brightness at maximum?
Because it looks better!Brighter screen always screams quality. Even if N8 didn't have any display issue I still would recomend to increase brightness, because N8 looks the worst in darkness compared to other phones... And you don't even need 100%... 90% brightness is perfectly enough to clear out the most of the purple tint...
It is Amoled for sake! and Amoled is known for its brightness and high contrasts. and you not gonna get high contrast when you screen brightness is at 50-60 %.
