Nokia N8 Amoled Colour Display Problem

Hello you all!

I have a problem with my display and i need you. In this post i will give you some test images and my samples so you will see what i mean!

I have problem with dark colour, if it is dark it is ok, and then if it is less dark then it appears violet. That is really anoying when watching movies when the movie is dark it is all violet and wierd colours. Example when you watch tron trailer whitc is uploaded on telephone and the colours are like it were be in 16bit colour (like in windows)

And another thing. When i start QTorch app in deafult menu of the app it is not dark it is violet around the qtorch logo and ON button! It souppouse to be black around those logo and on button!

Sorry for my bad english and the pictures are not brilliant quality but it show the point!

If yo will please tell me if you have same problem. 

 

I went to Nokia Care Center and they tell me that this is normal, but for me it is not normal, because n8 is a flagship of nokia and they are not allowed to do such a mistake. I am really disappointed!

Re: Nokia N8 Amoled Colour Display Problem

How can they even say that this is normal!?
I have returned 2 N8's already, third one is coming in a couple of days becasue of this problem!
if it has the same problem, then WOOOW.
I really want to like the phone, but when watching movies on it and thinking that my 5 year old sony ericsson phone can do it better, then it's just bad.

I really, really hope the next one will have no problems at all, if it does I will probably just get a HTC desire or just stick with my old **bleep** mobile phone.

I believe the correct term for this is "post-processing". It's a capability in some decent video players to be able to cleanly render gradients across the screen .

The purple thing I also believe is a problem but the gradients and some pixelized effects are more on hardware.

What did you expect from a mobile device? That it plays FullHD quality like one of those Samsung/Sony players? Hell, no!

You are not alone. A cheap DVD player will show those boxy edges while playing the same video on a PS3 almost completely eliminates these flaws.

Also, you'd also have to deal with the source video. One of those poorly encoded videos also show those boxy things. I'm still in the middle of getting 720p videos to try and see if there's a difference.

I believe you guys already knew what you were getting when you bought this product.

For what it's worth I also downloaded that gradient image from one of the threads. It turns violet on the shade just before black.

Re: Nokia N8 Amoled Colour Display Problem

i can't really get a good picture as well, i'd normally use the camera on my phone. in reality the display looks completely monochrome.
