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.

rcda, 27 Mar 2011 hi gitty may i know hows your n8 now is fixed reddish purple replacement new... moreWow! You had your N8 replaced 6x already? And it's still defective? That must be frustrating. I feel sorry for you. Just wait for the 3rd batch and cross your fingers it's going to be defect free.
[deleted post]It seems your april comes pretty early ;) . However the N8 sensor itself is capable of 1080p recording but the camera buffer isn't large enough.

saif, 27 Mar 2011hi i am living in saudi arabia......the n8 which sells here has no issues and works perfect in... moreHi, so this convince me a lot, N8, wait for me, I'm going to grab one, the only reason why I'm hesitant to buy this is because of the purple tint issue, since we are exactly in the same country, I will buy one now, I wonder where did you bought it? and how much is the price now, last time I checked in Jarir it was 1899 SAR.
Thanks in advance on your response.
sony lover, 27 Mar 2011I love sony LCD TV,Laptops,especially cameras, but in phones sony is never near nokia,by many ... moreI don't have a choice where the phones are concerned, this is my second blue N8 and it still has the tint issue but to a lesser extent, if this persists I will stick to Sony phones since I hate my samsung pixon 12 and this stupid iPhone 4 that I'm getting rid of.
please use light controll application, it is redusing the purple issue, tested on my n8.
heey gr8 newss guyzz...iv successfully modded android 2.3 for N8..it is way better than symb. iv hackd mobile and installed it. it works like charm. nw it records 1080p videos @25 fps.
I have been trying N8 from couple of days, what I am to writing in is not to go against Nokia N8 or Symbian^3 but just an opinion What might be dragging Nokia down. It is not the color of icons, it is not the hardware, it is not the old look, it is not the font and it is not the speed or browser. But one thing that I felt since I start using this beautiful device, the FLOW of information that user have to deal with. It is simple yet somehow it is not that simple.
I haven't use Andriod yet so I cannot compare it to Symbian^3, and I know Symbian has a lot of features to offer and such many things are not easy task to contain but still if Nokia put some of their good resource to simplify them more, just the flow of everything than I am sure they will claim the crown very easily with this OS.
