I got my Galaxy Nexus back today and it has the exact same issues. Nothing changed. Samsung sucks.

They sent me another UPS label to send it in again. Maybe this time they'll actually fix it or just swap it for a new one.

Never buying a Samsung product again. I don't mean to start a flamewar here, but if this were an Apple product, I would have it swapped for a new one the first time.

Same here, I've got terrible banding on my phone. I can even see it on blacks and you can see it on whites even in sunlight and at a distance. I'm going to call them tomorrow and demand a new phone. If they don't give me that I'll demand a replacement in the meantime.

I sent my phone on Jan 16, it reached them the 18th. 5 weeks,8 phone calls, and 2 emails later, it reaches back home, unfixed . I cannot spend another 5 weeks with my huawei u1250-which is only making phone calls on speaker phone

At low brightness levels (specifically at the lowest) I get a lot of blue tints here and there on the screen? Is that a problem? Like for examples, the notification bar (when dragged down) turns blue and also the buttons on the keyboard turn blue-ish!

I'll post a picture if you want.

Edit : It's actually purplish o.O

EDIT 2 : THE DARK GREYS TURN PURPLE :eek:

Sounds about right. I just keep my brightness at about 60%. Phone lasts all day+ and the screen looks great.

Hmmm I guess not.

I remember my first phone having some weird tint issues though.

Is the screen supposed to turn on when I receive a text message? I only get the sound and the light notification. But when I receive a call it turns on like normal...

Yea it's normal.

If you want it to turn on (and display a popup with a reply box) get GoSMS (free). It's got all kinds of features like that.
