AnonD-40, 06 May 2011You said it's almost defect-free. You mean to say that it still have the defect only to a less... moreMost users in general don't care about purple screen. Even majority of users who complain and whine about that infamous purple screen still choose to keep their N8. It would be nice if one got a perfect screen but a purple screen doesn't hamper one from still enjoying his phone and letting it do what it is intended to do. N8 is just too good a device to just let it go. You can count the purple screen as one of N8's cons. Just like every other device, there are always pros and cons. What's important is that the pros far outnumber and outweigh the cons. And besides, Nokia have already acknowledged the defect, though I feel they should have publicized it more. And in fairness, their Nokia Care centers have been very helpful to attending to and did all they could to solve this problem. It's just that this problem can't be sorted out. I guess it's not Nokia's fault anymore but the AMOLED display manufacturer's.

Guyz, I would like to share to you my experience on this handset.
Last week, I bought N8 and found out that it was having this purple screen problem, though it is not always noticeable, but in low light, specially when watching dark videos,you can see purple tint every where, and the video playback is also pixellated.
I called the shop where I bought it from, and told them 'bout the problem. They advised me to go to the NCC and guest what? The nearest NCC from our place is 110KM away. But not a problem, we just drove the way using the Ovi Maps, and the trip was excellently guided by my faulty N8.
They just first examine my device, in my surprise, the purple is not visible when I was showing them my N8. I requested them to look for it outside (already 9PM) and the manager saw what I was talkin' about.
They did not replace the screen but they just requested and called the Store to replace mine with a brand new - defect-free N8. I was so happy that I receive this New N8 as it is almost defect-free. It is still having slight purple in the clock but not that noticeable, totally disappears even with ordinary light. The video playback is not pixellated and the purple tint in the video is not anymore appearing. I just hope the next update will totally resolve this issue.
(It took me 1 hour to explain the problem with the NCC guys because they are speaking Arabic.)
N8 is a superb device you just have to check it thoroughly for defects before leaving the store if you don't want ending with so much problem.
@Gitty and any one else who may be interested.

Just downloaded and installed Nokia Trailers. Works just fine.
What firmware version are you on PR 1.1 or PR 1.2? You should have the latest QT installed. The latest Qt can be found from the following website.
