lumia 800 screen issue

Hello to everyone,I'm new to the forums but I've been reading it for a while now.

I'm from Chile and I have my Lumia 800 for a week. Terrible battery life in 3G (8,5 hours of normal use)  , great life in 2G (22-23 hours). 

My previous phone was a 5800 Xpress Music , and compared to that the Lumia is lightning fast!.

 

but... and here's the problem, when the screen is set on automatic (and the surroundings are dark) or the screen is set on low or medium brightness I can see some horizontal lines in the screen while I scroll. I found a video in youtbe with the same problem:

when the screen is set at full brightness is barely noticeable,but is there. Is there a way to solve this? software? firmware? or my screen is a faulty one?.

 

regards.

 

Rodrigo.

Hey Rodrigo. I noticed the same issue with the screen. After a bit of searching I found that It's normal behaviour for the type of screen on the Lumia 800 (AMOLED Pentile). It's a bit disappointing, but the trade off is that you get great contrast and colour reproduction, so it's a question of whether or not you can live with it. Here's a forum post that explains the issue:

The battery issues are the same for me too. Apparently Nokia is rolling out an update that triples battery life. India and Singapore have it already. Not sure when it'll hit Chile, but the UK has yet to see it.

I've noticed the stripes as well, and the bad grounding (try holding a page still while charging), oh and the black spots if you have a black screen when it's dark.
You can notice black spots on the screen when you have a black screen (run diag. app e.g.) if you are in the dark.

Pretty minor issues to be honest, I use max brightness on my screen and none of these issues are even noticeable, even at a closer look you might not catch them.

I tested my phone in the dark and luckily I don't have the black spots. just the lines.
