Nokia Lumia 900 display flaw exposed, software fix in the works
As if the network connectivity issues were not enough to frustrate a number of Nokia Lumia 900 owners, the smartphone is now plagued by another flaw, this time affecting its display. In particular, when the screen's brightness is set to the minimum level, graphics that are supposed to be grey appear purple on some units.

According to a poll conducted by wpcentral, some 10% of Nokia Lumia 900 owners are affected. However, the actual percentage may differ since a user might not be aware of the defect as it is only available under the aforementioned condition. How can you tell whether your unit is flawed as well? Simply go to the display settings on your Nokia Lumia 900 and manually set its brightness to minimum. If a purplish hue is present throughout the interface, you are holding on to a faulty smartphone.

Even though we still don't know what causes the glitch to occur, Nokia promised to release a software update, which will take care of the issue for good. Word comes from the Nokia Care US Twitter page, where the announcement was posted earlier today. In the meantime, if you own a Nokia Lumia 900, feel free to share with us whether the issue is present on your smartphone too. Just drop a comment below and let us know!
