Nokia did everything to attend and address that purple tint issue on their Care centers. No other manufacturers would even care do that. But nothing more can be done about that since the fault is theirs anymore. Let's just wait Nokia file a lawsuit against Samsung just like Apple did. Samsung is the most unoriginal and cunning mobile phone company there is, They love to copy other companies' ideas, implement them on their products and take all the credits on them just like how they copy iPhone's design to their Galaxy series, iOS interface to their TouchWiz, and Android is not even their own OS. Yet they get all the credits for producing the deemed, "best smartphone of the year," Samsung Galaxy S II. They are a dirty player. I would never put my trust on Samsung.

personally i have seen both the n8 the one with purple tint and the one without.

to me the one without purple tint is the brightest screen....and the videos are crystal clear.

the one with purple tint is dull in brightness and also the videos show the dark areas with purple pixels.

there is no point in purchasing n8 now...better to wait until they release the new batch with rectified screens......


i would like to wait for such a beautiful mobile....

[deleted post]Are you suggesting that we should let Nokia get away with this and just hide the defect and move on? Hiding the defect and making it less noticeable is not the same as fixing the defect.

Getting the defect eliminated is Nokia's job. Nokia should start supplying the NCCs with defect free screens but sadly, they are not doing that. It has been 5 months since the news of this defect broke out and Nokia admitted the defect but there is still no fix to it. Nokia's first reaction to this issue was denial and they even banned the person who broke this news out for a few days on Nokia's official help forums.

The first person who broke this issue and brought it into the blogosphere has now moved on to a Galaxy S2. He went through a total of 10 N8 in less than 3 months and each one of them have the purple defect.

Nokia should be held accountable for this and the defect should be fixed and not hidden.

AnonD-40, 10 May 2011You risk burn-in of static images on your AMOLED screen if you g... moreRight now I have the brightness at 85% and the screen hides the purple tint and it will not get burned too. It is far from full brightness and there is no way the screen will be burned. Even at 75 or 80% of screen brightness still manages to hide the majority of the purple tint...
So, there is absolutely no risk to disable the light sensor, BECAUSE you don't have to put it on maximum level to hide out the tint.
Just adjust the brightness level 4 (80%) and it will hide the purple tint, + the screen will look a little more crisp...

"The Samsung Galaxy S2 has not only set a new bar for smartphones in 2011; it's smashed the bar, recreated it in its own image and put it out of reach of the competition."

You want something like this on your AMOLED screen just to hide the purple defect?

Nokia should provide its NCCs with the properly calibrated replacement screens instead of risking your screen to even more trouble by throttling your brightness to high levels just to hide the defect.

As Ray said, installing third party apps that controls the brightness and used for the purpose of hiding the defect isn't an ideal solution. It won't fix the problem as it will only hide it and you're also opening yourself up to getting a burn-in problem.
