Well I understand that people here are angry and pissed.
And although I am really glad I got a good one I can understand that and I think its just bull**** what Samsung hast done here to this awesome phone.

BUT the screen is in no way the "worst screen ever" first of all most issues are just on low brightness, so on normal brightness the screen shoud be fine right?
Well it sucks anyways, but the screen itself is gorgeous. And yes that its grainy on low brightness sucks, but is it really that big of a deal? I mean who uses his phone on such a low brightness? I dont even do that in the dark.

so I guess it will matter

I dont even touch Brightness, mine is on Auto and its grainy as hell......simply unusable. I will settle when I dont see any grain at around 20% and up. My One S SAMOLED gets grainy only at 0% brightness....move slider 1 click to the right and most if not all grain goes away....whites are pure white, and blacks are pure black.....and its not even a flagship device with qHD pentile screen. How hard is it to fix a damn problem thats been there since launch date, or is it gonna be just like Nexus One were Google screwed all customers with cheap ****ty AMOLED ?

What is it with QA these days ? Is it too much to ask for a functioning phone ?

I had a Nexus One with an AMOLED display. It was 10 times better than the one on my Galaxy Nexus. Again, I wonder if this is a bad batch that Google is currently selling.

I'm thinking maybe it's the same thing. I had a Nexus One too and after 2 years that phone has no burn in or image retention issues. Even the gradients look better. Apparently effective today Google isn't doing the RMAs for the Nexuses bought from the Play store and instead Samsung is. That's unfortunate since Google overnighted me a new Nexus no questions asked last time. With Samsung I now have to wait a day for some person to call me back to authorize the RMA.

Nexus One was fine, but it had bad multi touch issue.

PS. screen also looks nasty on a black background. You can clearly see defects.

After careful observing, mine has faint "banding" at extremely low brightness (lower than manual lowest) when using facebook app. Morerover, there is a pretty faint "ghost" when opening "Draw!". Notwithstanding that, these screen issues are not bad as the first post and they are acceptable.

Spoke to Google about my promised exchange which was supposed to come in today and yet i dont even have a tracking number or any word that it was shipped out....

Rep said that perhaps they ran out of stock and now Samsung is handeling all claims, he also asked me if I would allow them to check my device before shipping it out to make sure there are no defects....i agreed to this.

UPDATE: just got my track. delivery tomorrow. fingers crossed
