Screen Differences

12 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Has anyone else noticed this, I purchased my G300 a week after release but bought my wife one 3 weeks ago, the screen difference between the two is astonishing. Mine has bright rich colors and on a par to my sons Galaxy s2. My wife's is dull the whites have a yellow look to them and the blacks are nowhere near as black and before someone asks they are both on maximum brightness. I had it replaced at the Vodafone shop but it is still the same, when I questioned the rep at Vodafone he said I must of got lucky and that the only way this could of happened is that Huawei had changed the screens possibly for cost reasons,do you think this is possible?, it doesn't make sense or did Huawei launch the handset with better screens for good reviews and slipped these cheaper ones in hoping no one would notice

Yeah it is the same with most devices I think,well budget ones anyway.I had three blades(or was it four cannot remember now)and they all had different quality screens.As you described,the colors and blacks where different between devices,one of the blades was more a dark grey when another had black.

Only gripe with my screen is that under certain conditions I can see what appears to be very tiny dots that are spaced evenly like an artefact of the touchscreen matrix. It truly is hardly noticeable. Colours are bright,whites are white and blacks are black.Disappointing for you though knowing one is better than the other supposedly identical device. Nearest experience akin to yours I had was on three identical LCD TV's, all had differing screen qualities.

The dots can be seen on every screen I think. If they catch the light in a certain way, they are visible.
I think I got one of the first screens as I am well impressed with mine.

I occasionally can see my homescreens widgets still on screen when i go into another app, it's kinda like burn-in you used to get on old CRTs.

Anyone else get this?

I believe the dots are to do with the digitizer touch screen.

I've got two G300's, one for myself and one for my wife. Mine was bought when Vodafone first released it and my wife's two weeks ago. The screens look identical to me with no noticeable difference with the colour brightness or the white/black levels.

Yes, I have noticed this but I've also seen the same thing on other higher end phones. It's some form of image retention.

marky188, and any others that have access to multiple G300s with screens that look different, I wonder if you can pop into the [url="http://www.modaco.com/topic/355312-screen-misalignment/"]Screen misalignment?[/url] thread and answer the poll? It would be interesting to know if the screen is misaligned on one of your G300s and not on the other, as it may be that the two things are related.

Hello,

Today I detected those dots while surfing on the web ( white background ) ...

Are they normal ? I believe its normal, my tablet also have them, but just wondering if on these phones these " Matrix Dots (?) " are normal.

Thanks.

Capacitive screens are constructed with tiny wire inserted in a grid pattern into the glass/ plastic to detect completion of a circuit to map your finger position. In bright light the tiny wires can be seen. Edited by fr0do
