Purple screen;;;>
I have been using n 8 from last one month.I was aware about the purple tint problem before I get my mobile.in my mobile, it can be observed only "during unlocking the Analog Clock Screen with menu key". The upper semi circle of the clock is slightly purple tinted.one can think that its desined in that way only to give a fancy look to the analog clock. no where else its visible. So its not a problem to me.please stop highlighting the negligible things. Instead, lets discuss about the OS upgrades.

AnonD-6085, 30 Apr 2011Does Anyone Know When will Symbain Anna release officially?@Afridi.

Anna is available now if you buy a C7 Astound, or an X7.
Nokia have preloaded those two handsets with Anna.
As for the N8, there is no official date for the Anna update, other than Nokia saying it will be here sometime this Summer.
This is the thing that is causing a lot of loyal Nokia users a great deal of frustration. Clearly, Anna is ready now but still isn't available for existing handsets.
Mind you, HTC have done exactly the same thing with the Gingerbread update. They have released the Desire S with the update pre-loaded, but owners of the other Desire models such as the HD and Z variants will have to wait until August / September for the update even though Gingerbread has been available since December 2010.
Samsung are also guilty of the same thing to an extent. They did offer the Gingerbread update just over a week ago then pulled it on the same day. I suspect it was due to the fact they want people to buy their new Galaxy S 2, which comes with Gingerbread, but if the existing Galaxy S has Gingerbread, most people wouldn't bother to upgrade to the new model just yet. However, Google have been implicated in the decision to pull the update so it's purely my own speculation to blame Samsung for it as a marketing ploy.

All the best.

I purchased N8 in 13th Oct/2010, & can proudly say, hats off to Nokia for such a nice ph. Excelant picture quality bot still & movie, excelant data speed in 3G network itcan give up to 100.2 Mbps spee depending on network. Only thing spake vol is very poor. Allthough there are push mail featuers but did not work properly. Before to purchase this I was confused what to buy BB- Torch or N8, finally gone for N8. But pushmail featuers is not upto the mark. Other wise ph is very good.

I finally bought an N8. In regards to the purple tint issue, many of the retailers here in the Philippines are very much aware of the issue itself and guaranteed that the phones will be free of it. They even gave a 7 day factory defect warranty, in which if I found something, I can hand the unit back and get another on the same day.

Result: The one I bought was pre-installed with PR 1.1. I checked it thoroughly (I'm a perfectionist, so I was very thorough) and found no trace of the purple tint. Going home, I updated the phone to PR 1.2 and did another test... There's a reddish tint within a certain shade of gray, but otherwise, it displayed colors perfectly. Something with PR 1.2 messed the display config, since the screen was fine before that.

Tip: If you can, buy from a retailer and ask them to let you check the unit before you buy. You can try asking the retailer if they're aware of the issue and what they'd do if you encountered it with the phone. I'm pretty sure the new ones are free of this defect, since I haven't seen anyone else complaining about it (from the ones who bought it recently anyway).

[deleted post]Choose N8, you will never regret it, I am so happy with my device, it is superb, it has all the features you want, yes it has fm transmitter.

Ovi store is great. I am enjoying all the great stuff in it. I want to go home now coz' I'm missin' my N8, can't bring it to work, too bad, it is not allowed in the office, huhu.

I am also experiencing this purple tint defect but not that bad, it is not noticeable, My N8 is showing slight purple in dark gray shadings. I might return it for replacement if this will be worse.

Guys, How to check the Manufacturing date or batch?

This phone is positively defective. 10 out of 10 boxes we opened turned out to have the purple issue and the stupid store attendant told us it is made that way. He showed us a C7 and another N8 with the same issue. We proved to him it's a defect and he refused to open up more boxes for us.
