    I agree. Aside from the lines issue, this phone is the best I've owned. I might upgrade to the GNexus, but I'll need to count my pennies to see if I can afford it even after selling my SGSII on EBay.

    Not sure if this might help with detecting anything easier, but I saw the LCD on the S2 has a test mode....*#0*# Lets you test blocks of color and other LCD features.

    I am going to copy/paste what I wrote to Gizmodo just a few minutes ago. There is something seriously wrong with the Samsung Galaxy S2 screen. It is displaying faint noise/lines/fuzz beneath the picture/video/screen whatever you're looking at. Go look at yours now and report back. Move the picture around with your hand and notice if there's any blotches...

    "I need your help in the way of attention to this matter! Over the weekend I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S2 from T-Mobile. I played with it, it's great then a little while later I notice while looking at the phone when viewing pictures, browser, SMS screen--anything, that there is an underlying faint fuzz/verticle lines consistently on the entire screen. So I went to my T-Mobile store and exchanged it for a new one.

    In the store, the replacement Galaxy S2 seemed fine. But later on when I got home I was looking at some pictures and I noticed the faint lines/fuzz again! My friend with an iPhone 4 was next to me and we viewed the same photo, same websites, everything and his phone was absolutely perfect. I did notice the situation VASTLY improved (near perfect) when you turn off auto-brightness and manually increase screen brightness.

    At max bright levels, the picture is perfect. Turn the brightness down and the fuzz/noise/verticle lines reappear. There is definitely something going on here and I am not sure if it's just a problem with the T-Mobile exclusive 4.5" screen or if others are having this same problem. I took photos and video and have attached them to this e-mail. Please help shed some light on this. I am on contract with T-Mobile and an iPhone is not an option for me. (I could unlock it but I won't have 3G) Perhaps you can help me have some engineers from Samsung look into this.

    The problem appears to be exagerrated when displaying certain colors--grays and blues. But if you look closely, you can see it under any color. Do you guys have a Galaxy S2 you could try?

    Note: It's difficult to notice in the YouTube videos probably because the videos are compressed. They're a LOT softer than what came out of my Canon S95. Try staring at the blue sky in the video. you'll notice the iPhone 4 is PERFECTLY clean while the Galaxy has obvious fuzz/noise which DOES NOT move WITH the photo as you move the photo around with your finger. "

    Notice the banding/lines in the sky portion.. see how noisy it is? (and the photo is perfectly clean--I should know, I took it) but it does it on every screen, sms screen, browser, anything.)

    I'm not having these issues, and you need to redo your videos in a better environment where there isn't a light bulb overhead and perhaps with a better camera. I'm was looking at your videos on my 22" 1080p monitor and couldn't tell what you're on about...

    I can see some issues with the screen on the photo you've taken and posted above, but I can't replicate the problem. Maybe post the site that you visited so others can try/verify.

    I'm also having these probs, it's definitely a screen prob & not a camera prob as it's constantly on the screen & getting worse. I've had my galaxy s2 since July last year & this situationseems to be a more recent development. It sounds as tho if it were replaced I'd have the same problems???
