Default The worst AMOLED screen in the world



My screen (1 year) got so much lines on it

Even My Gs2 (1 year 9 months)'s amoled screen is better than that

Is it the normal amoled pentile technology?

Yeah, thats how it is all the time on my Galaxy nexus too,. I always have like 20% brightness and when you are in a dark room, you see the lines all the time and its annoying.

i don't know about nexus 4, Google has a bad track record of good displays. and not accurate color temperatures.

When I first got my gnex I kept the brightness really low. Then I thought to myself, "I bought a nice phone; it has a REALLY nice screen when the brightness is turned up all the way...why keep it low?".

Since then it's on FULL brightness and I've never looked back! Takes a couple of days for you to get used to the brightness though :^) (Yes I know it decreases battery life but it's worth it -- give it a try).

The Lines become much more obvious in this month

I always use only 10% brightness, hope the oled's decay slower
but the finally results is so disappointed

My Verizon CDMA galaxy nexus has same screen problem like yours. I think Samsung's amoled is not a mature product. My next mobile phone's screen must not be amoled.

Yeah, every app I run that gives me a plain white screen to look at really brings out the flaws in this device.

I have 20/15 vision, and have NEVER noticed this. If you try hard enough, you will find flaws in everything you come into contact with. Good luck with your search for the perfect phone.

Assume nothing, question everything. Only then will you find the truth.

Nexus 5 - stock 4.4.3/KTU84P
Nexus 7 (2013) - stock 4.4.3/KTU84P
Galaxy Nexus (SCH-I515) - "Shiny" 4.4.1/KOT49E
Xoom US WiFi (MZ604) - 4.1.2/JZO54K
Fascinate (SCH-I500) - CM 10.1

People don't have the screen on 100%? Why? Every phone I have ever had has been on full brightness.
