Nokia N8 AMOLED display issue

Nokia N8 AMOLED display issue

For those not already aware, the Nokia N8 has had issues with numerous batches of handsets that have a defective AMOLED display issues, which causes portions of the screen to be a violet colour which can be understandably annoying when you’re playing games or watching movies.

Apparently, according to a forum post by pro2type the issue is mainly prominent when the screen goes from pitch black to a lighter colour, that’s when the violet colour begins to show itself.

If you’re a Nokia N8 user and have this issue, check out the pictures on the forum post by pro2type and if you have the problem yourself, take your mobile phone to a Nokia Care point to have it either fixed or repaired. If the phone is under warranty, which in almost all cases it comes with a 1 year warranty as standard, then the phone will be fixed or replaced without charge.

Thanks to Iain Buckley for reporting this issue.
