Is your Samsung Galaxy S4 screen giving you the scrolling blur and purple/pink inversion treatment? You are not alone

0. phoneArena posted on 02 May 2013, 08:24

We are experiencing some of those with our own Galaxy S4, and dismissed screen issues with the phone as isolated incident, but we got sent link to a whole XDA thread, then we saw another one, which are now dedicated to various blips with the touted 5" Full HD AMOLED display from Samsung...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Wonder if Sammy will address this, and if so, what could they do?

Honestly the fanboys on the HTC side have started to outnumber that of the Samsung side, If you can't tell by the green thumbs one gets when they show HTC support and Samsung hate. I just personally want to see how well these fanboys effect sales on both sides.

this is similar to what a few have reported about the xperia z. i think it's an issue for just a few devices. with the xz, the issue was with the different display manufacturers used. i just don't know if samsung also uses different manufacturers for their displays. if not, it could be a very minimal problem down the production line.

I played with a G4 yesterday. It actually looks much better in person than I expected but clearly, Sammy has some bugs to fix as the sales lady at Best Buy couldn't get several of the features (ie eye tracker) to work and the phone crashed on us in mid-demonstration.

Very common problem with Samsung products. My Galaxy Nexus is even worse, just learned to ignore it. However, after contacting support and not getting anywhere. I Would never buy another $amsung product again, especially when a person is spending $649 of their hard earned money.

You have us confused with hardcore Apple fans, who to this day insist there was no Antenna problem with the iPhone 4.

If this is true (I haven't seen an S4 yet), then its unacceptable. Samsung needs to either fix it, or fully refund the consumers (at the consumers choice)

Ted, you gotta admit though that many Sammy fans are starting to get as hardcore with the "everything else sucks" stance as hardcore Apple fans.

Not everyone is like that of course but the trend is there to see.

Not true, i admitted the iPhone 4 had antenna issues, i owned one and can truely say it did drop signal when held in a certain spot and your hand bridged the connection between the 2 antenna's. But to be fair, every company is gonna have some issues, just fact of mass producing products, no single phone is ever going to be PERFECT, as they are designed and built by humans and humans are def. not perfect. I always put my phones in an otterbox no matter what phone it is, so i didnt really have any issues with my signal. Have an iPhone 5 now and it works wonderfully, have no complaints for it thusfar, and its simply what i prefer to use right now. Im not a hardcore fan of any company though, as fanboys from any company annoy me.

Nothing is perfect, when you buy things please do your own research. Otherwise getting a lemon would be a great reminder of that.

I quite happy that Samsung is getting the bad rep, it will mean they have to adjust their price lower... Keep up the rant!!! :)

you all do realize that samsung had a case against it by Taiwan accusing them of paying people to post online comments favoring samsung phones and discrediting rivals.
