    Anyone notice this? I traded my last Gnex for another one due to signal issues,and I'm noticing this one's screen is a little different.

    Just checkin' if I'm the only one having this issue.

    I guess not all AMOLED screens are the same. I forget the specific reasoning though. So if someone knows, take it from here. Ha ha.

    Will know better tomorrow when I go to work. I did get a replacement yesterday, and it seemed better while driving home and observing the handoffs. Seemed pretty seemless with only a few seconds between tower connections.

    ICS has a gradient to it, yes? In other words, if you look at Status or any Settings page, for example, it lightens up at the bottom of the page, right? I can't remember if the last Gnex looked the same...

    ^This

    You can download an app called Screen Test and it will give you many different colors and whatnot to see if there is actually a difference in brightness at the bottom, but I think it's unlikely.

    Usually if there is a variance in brightness it will be a specific spot, not a whole section like the bottom. This is due to amoled technology being 'grown' and not built. They sometimes have some variances due to being an organic material.

    Yeah ics has a gradient on it, dark at the top and lighter at the bottom. But maybe there could be a little difference from the slight curvature of the glass screen?

    Good info guys.

    @OP, sorry but since you hadn't noticed this on your first phone I misinterpreted what you meant.

    I did use screen test and found that it is a little bit brighter at the bottom, and it becomes less noticable when the brightness is higher. It is most noticable when the brightness is very low.
