Sharing my expirience.
To all guys who have posted about galaxy note's screen issues....
Im the guy who originally started this thread.
Id like to share my experience since a lot has happened since then.
As I mentioned on my original post, my screen was changing shades (pinkish to greenish to grayish), the so called dimming from what Ive learned.
When I first noticed this issue, I wasnt sure if it was a problem that the phone had or it was caused due to a serious drop that my Note took.
Later on and through this thread I realised that many more had this issue.
I got desperate and I... well I dont know how to say this to you droid fanatics,
I sold my Note and got a 4s!!! What can I say.... "stuff" happens... :)
Anyway, to make a long story short, the iphone was fine but I just couldnt take my eyes of the Note especially when I saw the white one. My heart was still there :)
So I took the risk and bought a white one.
I was very lucky with this one as far as the screen is concerned... Absolutely no issues... perfect. But... I tripped on some stairs and the phone fell down the stairs and dropped into a bucket of water!!!! Really.
At this point I will give some advise that hopefully no one will have to use.
I took the phone from the bucket and immediatly removed the battery.
Placed it into a towel and after swipping it as dry as I could, I took a hair drier and blew into all of its ports for about half an hour until my hands couldnt take the heat any more.... Here is the strange part... The phone worked!!!! And when I say a bucket of water, it was full!!!! Anyway... As much as I liked to keep this phone, there was a scratch on the screen from the fall. So I gave it up.
But I didnt stop there ofcourse....
I bought a new one thinking that the screen issues of my first note were just because the phone had just been released and... who knows...
Well... I was wrong....
My 3rd Note had the same screen issues as the first one....
Dont want to mention what an idiot I felt for insisting with this phone but still...
I didnt give up.
I sold the 3d one and got my 4th.
I am now the happy owner of a white galaxy Note with absolutely NO issues!
Now, my observation is this:
The 2 Notes I had -with- the screen issues (the 1st one and the 3rd one) where officially imported to my country (Greece) from local dealers. The other two that had -No- screen issues were unofficially imported from France. Note that all of them were running on the same software versions without any rooting etc.
Now I dont know if Samsung assembles ALL of her screens in the same factory,
but Im guessing this is a hardware problem and some "experts" told me that issues have appeared with samsung screens but also with other brands, according to the assembly line and location.
So... my personal experience with the Note, has obviously been a matter of luck!!!!
Either the phone has the problem, or it doesnt!!!
So whichever friend has these issues and has a warranty, my advise is... try to get it replaced.
I personally never tried that because Ive heard some veeery long periods of "waiting for a reply" from my local dealers, that I just couldnt take.
But Im sure this is not the case in all countries.
I hope Ive helped in any way.
