The Samsung Galaxy S II has proven to be a sought after device since it was launched around the world. The device is seen as the biggest threat currently to Apple’s all conquering iPhone with many happy owners of the device. Today though we are hearing of some faulty Galaxy S II displays emerging with owners on the T-Mobile network reporting issues and other versions as well.
Phone Arena is reporting that there is a growing thread on the XDA Developers forum where users are discussing problems on the T-Mobile Galaxy S II screen. Users are describing a problem where the display shows vertical lines and dots that appear under certain conditions. This comes more noticeable when looking at the display in dark conditions and the brightness level turned to minimum.
There have also been reports of sub standard color reproduction and poor contrast levels as well. One of the forum members made a comparison between displays of the Galaxy S II, and the version on Sprint the Samsung Epic 4G with both sharing a similar display.
It was noticed the Sprint version wasn’t perfect either, but issues were far less apparent as this version had been calibrated better. There is other Galaxy S II models that have the same issue as well, which include AT&Ts Skyrocket and other models from Rogers and Telus sold in Canada.
Back in August the device was reported to have problems with its display, as a bunch of users in Vietnam discussed issues with the device. Have you noticed any problems with the display on your Galaxy S II?
