The Moto Z2 Force Edition affected by the "jelly effect" issue, what gives?

t's not the first time that a Motorola smartphone is launched with its display mounted in an inverted orientation, but it's the first time that people start noticing it and complain about it...

Ugh. Apparently it's too much work to properly engineer a phone nowadays. Im sure lenovo seen the negative reaction to it on the op5 and decided to do it anyway.

"We're pretty sure that both Lenovo and OnePlus have tested their products before making them available on the market, so there's probably only a small number of units affected by the issue."
yes some of these phones are coming out with a not upside down display :|

I'd expect a low-margin smartphone like the OP5 to have some defects and such, but to see this kind of thing coming from Motorola/Lenovo is disappointing.

Just to see it on any flagship is inexcusable if it's a wide spread issue.

Jelly is the new gate.

I couldn't even make out the so called "jelly effect" even in the slo mo. This is a non-issue.

Just because you can't see it doesn't make it a non issue. If it wasn't, then other sites like Reddit and XDA Developers, along with many others, wouldn't be reporting on it which they are.

It's only a non issue if your phone isn't doing that. This was why I got rid of my Droid Turbo, because it had that effect on the screen and the bottom half of the screen was a warmer white balance than the top.

If you pay attention, when the person starts to scroll, the items distort a bit like they're getting stretched then scrolling.

They are copying every feature in their line up - good bad and ugly. Wide angle camera check, jelly effect check.

I'm not seeing the issue to be honest. Not to say that Jelly scrolling effect isn't an issue, I've seen it on the One Plus 5 and it's pretty bad. I'm simply saying that if there is a jelly effect with the Moto Z2 Force, I'm simply not seeing it from the video provided.
