    No problems with my V30 screen. I compared it to my girlfriend's S8+. I think my V30 screen is better.

    The display on my V30 is beautiful. Even at 30% brightness there is no banding or graininess. Was the Verge review of production model or pre-production?

    I have one horizontal band that is about 75% down the screen. It is only visible at 25% and lower brightness, and not at all during the day. I don't have any color inconsistencies that I've noticed. Also, using a black theme I found on the Play Store called Pixel Black made it less annoying.

    That being said, it's still aggravating.

    Other than the that, the phone is pretty much perfect in my opinion...which makes the screen that much more annoying.

    I just received my T-Mobile V30 today (a day early yay!) and so far the screen has shown no signs of banding or any of the color inconsistency. I am really amazed how dim the screen will get! Off-angle viewing does show a slight bluishness, but nothing that I can not live with. So far I am very impressed,

    I've been scouring three forums (here, xda, and reddit) and my anecdotal, non-scientific observations are that folks seem to be happier with the screens this week. Either folks have gone in with low expectations due to forum posts prior to buying and are happy, or the panels are generally getting better (it's also possible that the early early adopters were pickier, and the horrible panels were not as common as thought).

    I think your final thought is correct. The true phone geeks grabbed the phone early and discovered the flaw. People buying recently have been less critical (as they aren't necessarily looking for flaws) and think that it's a good cell phone.

    Have been looking real hard at the V30, combing through first impression reviews based on pre-production units.

    Here's an article by Ron Amadeo about the V30 OLED display having uneven color, weird horizontal banding and uneven light levels (with hot spots) when the screen is set on low brightness in a dark room:

    Pre-production unit I know but... I'm a little surprised more people aren't raising this or at least mentioning it.

    I'm a former Galaxy S7 Edge user and I don't have a single gripe about the screen on the V30. I'm sure there are handsets with issues, but why do people seem to have such a hard understanding that there are plenty of handsets without problems. My screen is fine, and the phone is excellent.

    Does anyone see the way the display turns blue ish when you tilt it? just a bit off axis and it changes considerably. one reviewer mentioned it but I'm not hearing it from anyone else.

    Me too for the price drop. Just released in Canada today and for the corp plan price they want $489CDN on a 2 year contract. Was hoping it would be about $200 less. Going to keep looking come Nov early Dec it should be much cheaper.

    Can you try this app:

    With 15% brightness?

    Here is what it looks like on mine :

    You're obviously a Samsung fanboy. The display is not "much better" on the S8 at all. I've compared them side by side and the only difference I can notice is the S8 is slightly more over saturated and a bit brighter.

    I quite enjoy the screen on the V30. The only issue I run into is whenever I unlock my screen or my phone hasn't been unlocked for long periods of time, on my always on display, there is like a flash and weird almost line in the screen.
