Default [BUG] Vertical lines, blob, circles, pixelation on screen on some phones

Does anyone else notice vertical lines on the screen, especially when the brightness is low?

Its extremely annoying on auto brightness. I'm wondering of mines a dud. Looks kind of grainy. I'm wondering if its the screen size.


UPDATE : since using other Roms and keeping my brightness on at least halfway I do not notice these lines much at all anymore.

If you came from a Qhd display it should look grainy to you. Try using a different launcher than touchwiz.

You probably won't be able to see anything. Turn your brightness all the way down and see if you can notice what I'm talking about.

It might depend on your background pic. Look for it on the lock screen if you haven't changed the stock one yet... I see what the OP is talking about. But with different wallpapers I dont see it.

I got two of these and its the same on both so dont think its a flaw. But I will be passing by TMO when I'm out again to see if the display units is the same!

it starting to sounds more like color banding what you are referring to
