I've immediately noticed vertical grey smearing that shows up most at low -> medium high brightnesses and most prominently on white and grey backgrounds.
It's so bad at low brightness that it reminds me of cheap newspaper ink transferring to another page...
Has anyone else seen this with their GN?
Is it like phone launches of the past - some kind of manufacturing-related discolorations that quickly disappear after the first few hours/days?
Having come from the cheap and loveable streak-free amoled San Francisco to a next-gen *premium* screen, seeing such visible artifacts is very unsettling!

[*Update*] Thanks for all the replies, guys. Spoke to O2 in-store today, they'd run out of stock to compare it with, even their demo unit was bust - but I nipped round to my local 3 store, checked their demo handset, and the whites at low brightness looked completely blemish free, so I'll be popping to another O2 that still has stock tomorrow to exchange within my 14 days.
