this issue occurs just as frequently with HD images and video, in every format, that otherwise look great on any other device... so the sources are not the cause in most/all cases.

yes, absolutely.

That said, all one needs to do is use the HD gamma test image in a dark room. That one test demonstrates all you need to confirm the issue on any device. If there isn't a gradual fade to deep black from 20 down to 0, and instead it abruptly drops off at some point, then your phone has the black clipping issue, period.

oh ok...have done that and even my perfect s2 doesnt have the ideal transition but plays hd/mkv codecs well...have you realized that the screen is pentile?that it will really render colors and gamma unevenly than other amoled device?anyways im not a screen expert nor am i not bothered by this screen issue but ill wait for the next build.ive seen progress so far and if ics doesnt fix it totally im moving on to another release

Yeah, I keep bringing the issue up with video examples, but I should stop doing that, because it's evident even on static images. There isn't a nice smooth gradual fade to black there are obvious concentric "chunks" of color instead of a smooth transition (or all being "black" as I guess you'd see on LCD). I don't think it's fixable in software, I think it's some sort of hardware (or firmware for the display/screen) that isn't fixable via software.

Don't get me wrong, I'm hoping this can be fixed (I'm on a Nexus, but have the same issue as the Note), but I'm starting to think it can't be done and it's just either a limitation of the screen or something Samsung would have to fix physically on the device (or by somehow flashing internal video firmware that can't be touched by a custom ROM/etc).

On my side, I would hold off first any kind of 'decisive' decision and judgement (put to rest for now), until Official ICS has been released and tried on the Note already...

Just like Forest Gump would say... "Life is just a box of Chocolate... You never know what you might gonna get..."

I wouldn't hold your breath. If ICS magically fixed it, I wouldn't have the issue on my galaxy nexus....

Agree, but who knows.. the Nexus is NOT the NOTE and the Note is not a Nexus....

Anyway I'll hold my ground until the Official ICS for the Note is release by then... and only then I will reserve my better judgement if indeed it's a hardware or just a software issue.

Quite true, but they do share the same new manufacturing process for the HD SAMOLED (non +) displays...

Time will tell I guess. If it IS fixed on the Note, that at least gives me hope the Nexus will get fixed...

like what cleo said...its 2 different things...ive seen the issues on the nexus via their threads...sucks that from the start of ics its already there..but in the note's case every new release there is somewhat of an improvement (well for me)...the dark shades, the gamma, the lockscreen wallpaper problem etc...but if you are stuck with the stock firmware i guess you have samsung to blame for that...and yeah the hardware has limitations, so if we have problems we can always forward it to them...what i dont understand is that some people here try to pull down other people into the screen problem mix and then provide no definite possible way of augmenting those issues...and much more accusing people of settling and lowering standard requirements...personally i bought the phone so as i could play with it and learn stuff...test roms, builds, kernels and hack and mod if possible...if some guys want total media/multiplayer experience then go buy an ipad or a tablet with no issues...every device has a problem inherent to it...if you are not satisfied or have no ability or even the patience to find solutions then you have no business of owning them...this is one the reasons why someone here got flamed a lot of times for complaining too much and having no evidence to back it up...

I certainly missed something here. Which application should I use to decrease saturation of gray color? Has Supercurio found a solution?
Blah blah blah, I am not a whiner who'll whine all his life about note's screen, write THESIS and add it to my signature.
Whatever the gray screen problem is, it does not affect usability and productivity.
Yawns zzzzzzzzz
