Default Galaxy Note colour rendering issue: started working on it.

Hi dear Galaxy Note owners.

As many of you I'm not quite satisfied by Galaxy Note screen.
Most of the feedback reveal sub-par results, despite we all know the potential here is huge (to say the least).

References:
- [Q] Galaxy Note Screen Issues!!!
- [Q] Video on Note

Worst offender being shadows rendering: my diagnostic: what's supposed to be dark is not so dark.. and then boom its black (ie black clipping)
As a result color look dull, some UI elements show not quite as they're supposed to, and videos exhibit awful banding, blocking and ringing artifacts.

That's why I can announce here I started working on Galaxy Note screen color.

Don't expect immediate results as it's a complex topic and I'm working on other projects where users expect updates (like Voodoo LOUDER), but I wanted to give keep you updated.

Next step:
Measurements with a colorimeter, at several brightness levels.

That's great news, indeed, Note deserves a little more care with that beautiful screen . Waiting patiently for the first results.

This is the most amazing news right after CM9...

Really happy to see my beloved note becoming more popular among devs now. So far was a little jealous of GSII owners... Not any more.

Thanks a lot you guys!

Great news!

People say that I was nitpicking about the black levels and rendering issues on the G-Note.. Only show that their expectation is below average

Cant wait for your updates!

Lets see how the fanboys react to the words highlighted, calling all the majority vs minority defenders

Oh sure.
Also, people disagreement is expected as one screen can vastly differ from another.
Its a source of endless fights in forums but also make fix/improvement attempts a lot more difficult.
