it's confirmed that apparently Samsung has boost up 30% of colour contrast on the Galaxy Note in default (to indulge us with great bright crisp HD LCD obviously, which is a good thing), but unfortunately it has caused a defect/issue called "COLOUR BANDING" (software) that cause the stripes.
i say that the defect is visible on gray & blue background because that's just how i've experienced it. others might experience differently with the stripes visibility, e.g while watching videos etc.
my SGS2 has the same problem too but i was managed to fix it using application voodoo screen tuning by supercurio (its function is to adjust the contrast to prevent the colour banding to appear). it doesnt support the Galaxy Note though. but anyway i just want my galaxy device to stand alone perfectly & not depend on some application to fix the LCD.
since it's a software problem related, Samsung has got to do something to fix this, because LCD problem is a very sensitive matter, and Galaxy Note is all about the advance HD LCD. Please fix the defect, Samsung!

I had an Infuse before and that screen was awesome! Samsung has changed something and it is NOT for the better.
dines2, 08 Dec 2011hey guys every one saying about the galaxy note performance . one thing i would like to share ... moreThis is for a video you downloaded, I'm guessing. If its just 360p, then the black gets a bit pixilated. It's not a problem for 720p and above. Try video recording with the different resolutions and see if they happen.

It never had this grayish pixelation. Its obvious when watching movies too. First I thought this was due to the HD screen. I plan to go back to S2 just because of this screen defect. S2 screen was awsome but battery was bad. Here with note its the opposite. Is Samsung taking us for a game. Hope they fix it with a software update.

all the advantages of Galaxy Note aside, one very annoying defect:
"horizontal grayish stripe on lcd screen"!!!
very visible when you adjust to lowest brightness display with gray or/and blue background (try scroll down the notification area, and it will be visible clearly)
majority of user has admit it, even Samsung Service Center admit that its one inevitable defect with Galaxy Note
i ask for solution (possibly with software/version update from Samsung), but Samsung Service Center just simply answer "MAYBE"
ICS 4.0 update just around the corner, but must live with the lcd defect forever? doubtful!!!
