    Question VZW Curve 8330 Screen Differences

    Advertisement



    Just got a second 8330 and noticed the "color" of the screen is very different than my other 8330. Has a blue tint vs a reddish tint on old one. New one is on the left. Anyone else seen this?

    Screen

    The phones may be made in different places. I've seen this before on Sanyo phone where there was a huge screen difference and one was made in China, and the other was made in Japan.

    You should be able to check the mfg. Location under the battery. It is suprising that RIM isn't tighter on their quality controls. That said I have had four of their devices and I have never had an issue with quality.

    Screen differences

    I purchased the vzw curve 8330 the day it was released (May 08). My wife just purchased the same phone today (May 30). She took a pic of me and sent it to my phone. When I looked at the same pic on both phones side-by-side I noticed a HUGE difference. The colors on my phone look completely washed-out compared to hers. We called verizon and they had no problem with sending me a new one. So for anyone out there who purchased one of the first batch of vzw curves I would suggest checking into this asap.
    Holler at me if you need some fresh ringtones.

    Is yours the more blue one? Let us know if your new one is better or the same. Thanks. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I noticed the same thing with my 2 Pearls. The 8120 screen has a grey tint to it. The 8100 doesn't.

    every screen cant be made 100% like the next. there will always be small imperfections in all the devices. try not to look sooo hard
