Galaxy Nexus Screen - What's Normal, What's Not. (Photos!)
Got the Nexus today and having no experience with the AMOLED screens (iPhones and EVO before) I'm not sure what is considered normal and what is defective. I know there are plenty of threads about this, but very few examples.
Whites (Brightness 0-100%)
Greys (Brightness 0-100%)
More Texture (bad) left, Less Texture (good) right.
Viewing Angle - UPDATE: My new Nexus has much less tint when viewed at an angle. *Colors adjusted to match as close as possible in Adobe Lightroom - and they are very close.
- At extreme angles the screen with produce an iridescent effect.

Galaxy Nexus OLED's with a black screen showing red and green pixels are indeed slightly lit even though it should be "black" (15 second exposure).
Galaxy Nexus "black" vs LCD "black" (15 second exposure).
THESE ARE DEFECTS Exchange these phones... You shouldn't have to live like this!

- Black spots on a dark screen. Very common issue, odds are your replacement screen will have these, too.

- Banding and Transparent Lines
If other people want to add their own pictures for analysis I'll try and add them to the first post so people new to the AMOLED world can feel better about theirs/exchange for a new one.
