    Default .328 Color Banding. wtf? Why on every VZV official?

    Coming from .296 hybrid my icons and my call screen buttons look like ****. Even my keyboard as I type this is crappy looking. Not as bad as color banding in previous official builds but its defiantly there. Look at the media and application folder icons. Also at the tops of every icon.
    Anyone know why every official from VZV has this? Does .237 have the color banding issue? I bet it doesn't and If not a .238 java with a .237 radio would be nice. I wonder if .237 was good enough and went through testing but verizon required somethings changed before it became official? They made very slight changes which allowed verizon to ok it a few days later after those changes were made? I had a long weekend and I'm super tired. hope some of you get what I'm trying to say.

    The only color/quality issues I've seen is when you look at pics full screen. Check Card Storm's thread for a good explanation to what to look for.

    Really I'm alone on this? just hit the send button and look at the tops of the dial pad keys. They look worse on this OS than I have ever seen.

    Hope the storm2 doesn't have this issue.


    Edit. While typing this post I got an error with key input system. Something about it needed to be restarted. Then my buttons froze. Wtf?

    Are you talking about the little black dot pixle look at the top shadow edge of each number button?

    yes that's the most apparent way to notice it. But here in my hand I have a tour, iphone and my storm and next to the other two phones just going through my menu it looks like it was made 3 years ago. I didn't notice it at first and I know my 9530 diaply lacks a bit of definition compared to the other two but not bad. now I can't even explain how bad everything looks next to the iphone.

    Even color banding on photos. This is BS. I have a picture of a receipt on my phone and I'm looking at it side by side with my tour . On my storm u can't even read the numbers on it at all even though it fills up the whole screen. The tour, even with a smaller screen, I can even read the small fine date on it without zooming in at all.

    I was really hoping verizon would do good on this, I just might not be getting a storm2...

    I'm just not seeing it. Maybe on the icons but when I look at any of my pix on my SD card they look as good as they did on 4.7.167. And I just watched an Onion News Vodcast with PodTrapper and the video was solid, beautiful and my Bluetooth Stereo headset worked perfectly with it. So far I have no complaints with this OS.

    Video is much different from still images. Look at my photos in the link above and you will see it.

    .323 had it, .328 has it, so I'm sure .327 has it.

    There is absolutely no way this OS has the worse color banding issue.

    The word color banding should be deleted from this site!! The os is great coming from 148, this is the greatest thing since slices bread. How far can one reach to complain?

    I agree that it shouldn't exist, but at this point I doubt they are going to ever get rid of it. Before the first couple of builds, has there been a build since, in which color banding didn't exist? I can't remember. I just assume that it will always be there in some form.
