Satz, 05 Feb 2011SAMOLED also having purple effect problem
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=... moreSAMOLED has bigger problems than that, even the best ones on SGS has a tint of blue where it should be pure white, and also otherwise bad color reproduction compared to SLCD. The only way to rectify it is to set brightness to maximum but thats not possible to use, its too bright.
Sory AMOLED fans, there is no magic in AMOLED tech, the best LCD you can find on a cellfone nowadays is the HTC Desire Z. Color reproduction is stunning, but ofcors it dos not have the pure black and extreme contrast level of AMOLED. Its actually annoying to watch videos on SAMOLED because of the inaccurate skin colors of the actors. Noone looks like that in real, and it gets worse when its asian ppl in the movies.
For now one have to chose between reliable SLCDs with good colors, or play lotto with AMOLED and hope you get a good one that will stay good for more than a month or two.
husi, 06 Feb 2011also, does your screen brightness automatically changes with the intensity of the light? is it... more Just the opposite? Your former device must have been Faulty. The screen needs to get darker in a dark environment so as to conserve battery and not blind you. You wouldn't be able to see your surroundings if it remained bright. in a bright environment, the screen needs to be bright so as not to be a mirror. I'm at a loss of answers to why any one would want to deactivate this very important function. Its not like its new. Unless one has been living in a cave. My nokia 6630, made in 2003 had one. Is indispensable.
i just hope that nokia will fix this,, there are a lot of n8 owners out there who encounter this problem,,

and when in themes I select top (black one) I get the options bar of blue color and when I select the second (blue one) I get it like greenish..
Guys, don't bother with this phone. Worst phone ever. I am a heavy business user and this phone cannot handle volume calls as the software seems to clog up. Phone constantly drops out, reboots and stalls while making and receiving calls. My carrier is willing to replace it with another phone immediately because they have had some many problems with them. Don't waste your money! I'm off to try a HTC Aria instead...

if you see the purple in the clock as shown on the pictures provided in this forum and also qtorch appz, your handset is also affected. you will not see this issue on the pictures that came with the phone. but try also the tron trailer and find e.g. the 22nd second in the trailer. you will see a scene with a couple of areas where black goes into grey and those areas are purple, but shall not be. i know this difference because i had many displays already. but if you watch bright movies on the phone, u will not notice this purple issue. however if you watch dark movies, you will notice a lot of purple and brown areas everywhere instead of dark ones. it is very annoying.
why is the half of the clock purple? imo the affected half of the clock is not black as the rest even on a perfect display. i think that the upper half of the clock is VERY VERY dark brown/red, it looks almost like black, but there is a sligth difference in colour. i think the programmers made it like that so that the black watch ist not that boring.
my first N8 was bought begin of december and display was perfect. beautiful colours, no purple, good lighting, no dot matrix. this N8 died and I got it replaced. at this point my problems with lcd began. with this second N8 i got middle of january i noticed the dot matrix in display and some back light issues but still not this purple issue. because of the problems with illumination i got my display replaced now in february and i got one with the purple issue, it is horrible when i compare it to those two displays i had before. not even in the clock, qtorch and tron trailer but also in the main menu i can feel the purple cast is everywhere present. more noticeable comes ist however under slight light, when the display dims itself.
hello, 05 Feb 2011considering to buy this device next week . how is this phone guys ? i dont want to regret buyi... moreI have had the phone since November 2010 and I have had no issues whatsoever. The call quality is great. Camera and HD video superb. I spent months looking at Blackberry, HTC,Sony and Samsung smartphones and to be fair they are all pretty good. The 12mp Camera did it for me in the end. I was not that bothered about android as I thought Symbian does the job at the end of the day. Apple is a very good product but for the price they ask, it should have the best of everything and we all know it does not! For me, N8 does everything I need and more. My advice go and buy it you will not regret it!!!
