Could you please post a picture showing that it is completely black? It would really help me to get through to Nokia care because at the moment they are saying it is normal.

My phone has this issue. I must admit, it does not really bother me - it was only when I saw this post and ran the test that I noticed the purple squares in the test image on my phone.

FYI : My phone is an N8-00, on Vodafone UK. Product code 059COT6. I received it in early November last year. I have experienced the problem on firmware PR1.0 and PR1.1

the screen now seems to emit a purple/red hue whn the colours grey/white/black try to mix into othe colours

this happends throughout the ui and o/s -- photos -- films -- standby screens -- its pretty much visible everywehere

i know all n8s dont have it as my old one was perfect and my dream device however alot of peple are suffering from it check out these links and pictures and videos

(in the pictures the black n8 has the original screen i had the other two have the purple tint just look at the huge difference in them)

does your nokia n8 have this purple tint to it , if so please contact nokia and complain about it in a friendly manner eithe via facebook , twitter , customer services email or telephone as the more people that complain about it the more nokia will do something about it if thats possible

how many users here are facing this n8 screen problem :-( i am :-(

bro ...just see in the 2nd pic ....the unlock button colour in black n8 is different from other ...black n8 unlock button colour is bright and very better ...and the others are very fady and light coour ..this means it has problm with oled screen ...not firmware ..i suppose

Bless you and I am glad you're happy with it.

However, the Cheif Executive Officer of Nokia disagees with you...

"The first iPhone shipped in 2007, and we still don't have a product that is close to their experience. Android came on the scene just over 2 years ago, and this week they took our leadership position in smartphone volumes. Unbelievable."

as well as most of the world's smartphone buying public.
