Omair, 22 Mar 2011I have the display problem(the purple/brown/red thing)
So will this thing will give any probl... moreThe purple defect is still new. No one knows if it will get worst in time but I don't think it will. It just won't display the colors right. Take it to Nokia Care and explain to them the problem and tell them to look for the bulletin about it on the database. Just insist on getting it fixed or replaced with a perfect unit and don't listen to them if they try to tell you that AMOLEDs are supposed to be that way.
Nokia admitted the defect but the people at Nokia Care still don't know what's going on.
guys do have the same problem when u view lighter colored pictures for example the sky there are some super thin lines passing like it's raining....is it normal with amoled because i don't notice that on phones with lcd screen...please answer my question guys.cos it's bothering me..

Anonymous, 22 Mar 2011HOws everyone finding the new firmware upgrade Just dial this *#0000# it'll show your current firmware select option and then check firmware update. Or go to settings/phone/phone management/device update. And its PR 1.2 btw not 2.0.
I've just update my N8 to PR 1.2 via ota. What new? Well I'm not sure,but i notice one thing the music player screensaver is workin fine now,no more graphical issues. And the rest I'm not sure,maybe it just bug fixes and some performance improvements since it just minor update. But don't worry as i heard PR 2.0 will out soon following the released of C7/astound. :)
I just got this phone and it has the purple screen defect. Its very minor, unnoticeable in most of the phone, and worth buying even with the defect.
