Morning all, I received my nexus today and wow its fantastic. After getting setup and yada yada I noticed that when I go to take a picture in the dark or view a black image I get a strange black line about 1inch down from the top of the screen all the way across and 1inch Inc vertically inwards from the right side of the screen all the way down. I'm not too sure how to take a screen shot to show you guys/gals. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the pen tile or I've got a dodgy handset. Apart from that the phone is great.

Thanks Nathan

To take a screenshot, hold down the Power button and the volume-down button at the same time.
If you take the screenshot and look at it on another phone/computer and the line isn't there, it's in the screen. Weird that it would only show up when taking a picture or looking at a black image...?

I have taken a screenshot of a pure black image off a screen test app. I also took a picture covering the camera and both are identical. I will attach the images below. Please note you need superman vision to be able to see it. Best viewed in a dark room or squint.

a screenshot won't show any screen defect, you have to take a picture of the screen with another camera

I have the same problem and started a thread about it. I'd wait a week and then return it for an exchange when there is more stock.

Does it do this with every picture? I have seen crap digital cameras do that when bright light relects off of the sun.

I have tried to take a picture of the black screen with my gs2 but it won't pick it up at all. Its worse than I thought after i examined it. Its like scattered dots across the majority of the screen. Also when the brightness is set lower the screen goes purple. No true blacks

Edit: Im comparing the xda app from my gs2 and the whites are more cream. I Must have a bad handset as there is no way this is normal.
