So Im a little late on the draw. But I installed the N8 mod v7 and the mod for 6 home screens. Man! I feel like Ive grown wings! Such power in my hands.
I work @ Claro and we sold all the N8 units, i have been very alerted to the screen issue, and none of our customers have complain about it, i have manipulate a lot of N8's all screen perfect from the first run till now!! when i see one i believe keep you posted!
guys i dont know but recently i loaded TRON , and checked it first with screen protector and then after removing the screen saver. i saw a gross change in purple fringing. all looked beautiful and without purple screen, blacks were smooth black, and only one spot there was evidence of gross purpling where it was even grosser when scree protector was on.
just something i noticed , how about anyother who shares same , or has purple fringing without screen protector on??

Is it me or does it seem like Nokia is paying Gsmarena to fluff up their daily views to keeps t3h Galaxy S II from number one (again!) before it's released - while at the same time Nokias semi weekly pick'n'mix days at Voda, o2, etc are trying to promote useless housebricks to members of staff who don't care and want free sweets. Lulz :o

Ray Hipkiss, 21 Apr 2011 For anybody who has a defective AMOLED screen ( half purple analogue screensaver clock ). ... moredid they also release a n8 unit now, without purple tint isssue or any defect..? a defect free unit...
AnonD-4378, 21 Apr 2011Hey guys, i gave my N8 to Nokia care Center,it has the purple tint problem.so i gave them, and... moreWait for the defect free screens. As Ray Hipkoss said, it's beginning to trickle down to NCCs world wide. Ask your NCC if they received the defect free replacement screens every week and when they do then head to the NCC and have your N8 fixed. Don't keep on sending them your N8 if they don't have the defect free screens. It will just get replaced with another defective screen. Wait it out a bit and keep calling them.
Hey guys, i gave my N8 to Nokia care Center,it has the purple tint problem.so i gave them, and i was told to take it after 3 days. i got it back but it was not fixed. now what shall i do ??? plzz help me !
AnonD-6663, 21 Apr 2011Are the voters kidding me!
Ok design looks good BUT features like old device
And performance... moreone has to be very, very dumb to put their faith on the voting system and use it as a deciding tool for their purchase decision. eg. our old and extinct friend, Pre-historic.
and why would you care if gsmarena got sued? there is already a disclaimer stating that the info of this site is not 100% correct. it is, by right, his/her fault if they made a bad decision based on their stupidity
I bought this cellphone yesterday. On a first view i can tell you 3 things. 1_ the handset has a internal battery, 2_ the wifi has not a good signal, and 3_ is not a crazy thing.... So i think now "I would have bought an Iphone"
Mobi consultant, 21 Apr 2011@hbk00,go to nokia care dude. They will fix it. may be, cos my frd iphone got signal probs, bu... moreSearch the net for the "N8 purple screen defect" and you'll find a lot of results. You're ignorant to the defect that even Nokia themselves admited. Search the internet about it and you'll see the painful truth that the fanboys are trying to cover up.
Are the voters kidding me!
Ok design looks good BUT features like old device
And performance don't let me start with it just check Youtube for how many times this phone failed people
I hope Gsmarena put two votes for Diehard Nokia's fans and professionals so people don't be tricked by this fake result and buy this phone then finds it's not like the vote said and then breaks it shots himself or sues Gsmarena.
I don't think Gsmarena want this, Do they?
For anybody who has a defective AMOLED screen ( half purple analogue screensaver clock ).
Nokia are aware of the fault and have issued a service bulletin to all Nokia care centers ( NCC ). New, defect free screens are starting to arrive now, so you can take your N8 to an NCC and ask them if they have the new screens in yet, and get yours replaced. If they deny any knowledge of the purple screen fault, inform them that a service bulletin was sent out detailing the fault and solution, ( replacing the screen ).
All the best.
