My N8 has purple tint.......
Nokia care doesn't accept it as fault....
So using my old LG phone....N8 is still in its Box as I cannot use directive one....its very very annoying.
I collected my pocket money for 1 year to buy a high end smart phone to watch videos n play games :-(
I cant stop crying....Nokia isn't helping....visited all Nokia care centers in my city...but in vain.
Can anyone please help???

I bought this blue N8 (made in China) in last December and not surprisingly it's the best phone I've used so far.But for the last couple of days whenever I browse internet,download files or play games, my N8 heats up heavily.Sometimes it becomes so hot that I can hardly keep it in my hand.My N8 also has that purple tint problem, but I'm not bothered about it.I live in Bangladesh but my set was bought from a shop in Dubai airport..My question is, how many people have suffered from this overheating problem? And if I return it to that shop, will they replace it with a new one? Please help guys.
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2011Perfect units are hard to find but they are out there. Just insist on getting the screen check... moreThanks for your reply.
I would def check the phone before buying it. That's a very good idea you have mentioned. I initially thought that the purple/reddish screen effects comes after 2 or 3 days of use of the phone, but now that I have learnt that if the phone's screen is defective, it would show up that way immdtly, so I would take the reqd precaution and check the phone at the store before buying it.
Have a nice day ahead.

I've been waiting so long for the updates to come, believing that it can fix the purple screen problem but when it arrives no changes at all. If you keep on telling that the purple screen defect is really not a defect then you are helping other customers to become another victim of the so popular headaches made by Nokia's negligence.
Mista Calais, 28 Mar 2011People People People. The redish screen DOES NOT MEAN that the screen is defected, if you have... moreYou are telling this because you are innocent of the actual screen-defective N8. The purple defect affects everything you do with phone from pictures, games, VIDEOS (really really affected), messaging, anything as long as you're using the screen it shows an unpleasant resolution. The screen should be perfect because the screen serves like the living room of your house where you spent most of your time with your family & friends. Most of the operation you do with your phone needs to use the screen of your phone. I mean you can not use your phone without using the screen of your phone.
If you are not so sure with what you are posting here in gsmarena, do not convince others to neglect the defect in the n8's screen. Maybe your phone's defect is not as big damage as the others N8 like my N8 where I really can not enjoy watching movies & pictures

Here's what a defective N8 screen looks like.
The silver N8 on the left shows reddish tone on the analog clock while the black N8 is fine. The silver N8 on my link below is defective.

People People People. The redish screen DOES NOT MEAN that the screen is defected, if you have the clock in DIGITAL you will see black as black. The new firmware 1.1 fixes all the lagging issues. The Camera is superb, the music is clear and load, the screen is bright and nice, the build is super strong, the features are very useful, i've been using my N8 for 3 months and I have not had a problem with it.
