Here's an interesting article on the N1's display. Found it rather surprising!

I would agree. Granted, they do show in those examples (if true) that the iPhone has the edge on number of colours, but I've not yet notices that, so I'm not going to worry

Ha ha, really? Someone make the image as an 800x480 jpg and we can test ourselves

noticed this when i transfered some files from my canon g11, flash pictures against a white wall gave just the bad result as the nasa-picture in the gizmodo article... too bad really, but doesn't mean too much in daily use for me

The photo of Mars sunset is a total red herring.

The issue is the gallery app, NOT the display.

Google Mars "sunset", open an image, and you'll see no banding. Save the image then view it in the gallery app, and the banding will suddenly appear.

looks like the gallary is doing some kind of bad compression on the picture

when I went to the mars sunset link in this thread, via the browser, there was tons of banding, so I don't see how it's a gallery issue.

I can't see much banding at all in the browser, this pic is the one I used for reference., certainly not what was shown on the Gizmodo site.

Saving it then viewing it in the gallery was a whole other kettle of fish, and THAT is what I'd equate to the image on Gizmodo.
