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 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.

Cheers!
I want to buy a phone for listening a music, watching videos & movies. Is this phone a good choice or i should go for little bigger screen phones? Can we watch online movies on n8?
Johnny, 28 Mar 2011Planning to buy the Nokia N8, but would like to know the status about the purple screen...
... morePerfect units are hard to find but they are out there. Just insist on getting the screen checked and look at the analog clock. If you see anything reddish or purple then get another unit. Anything reddish or purple on the analog clock means it's defective.
Do not listen to the sales guy if he/she says that it's normal. It is not. A perfect AMOLED screen will show black as black and not reddish or purple. Nokia Care is replacing defective units with defective units. They are currently in short supply of the perfect screen to replace the defective ones.
Check out my link below so you will have an idea on how a defective N8 screen looks like. Once again, insist on a perfect screen.
