Has anyone else seen display degredation??
I received one of the first 3G iPhones from ATT in Detroit. It had crystal clear display resolution, and YouTube videos came in on WiFi like HD. The swap-out had 25% degredation in resolution.
For the record, I downloaded the latest patch on first. However, turns out I had a small software glitch, so I swapped out the phone in Atlanta. The replacement home icons are washed out and not as crisp; YouTube videos are pixelated, camera shots are less clear... so what's up??
I took it back to the iStore, and come to find out all the iPhones in the store had the same resolution. I felt like I was in a bad episode of the Twilight Zone, and immediately tried to retreive my first phone...too late.
The rep let something slip that was very interesting, "sometimes when there is a software upgrade the resolution degrades"...WHAT!!!
So I took a closer look.
The Home icons have a white outline around them and they are faded because they are trying to make them look 3D - first were one dimensional and had richer hue, clock numbers were crystal clear, you could read the Aug month in Stock icon crystal clear, Calendar icon day was crystal clear...
There is a ringer icon after switching on/off - first had none.
There are delete buttons on emails. - first had none, you had to reverse swipe and then the delete button would appear.
There are varying borders of hue around the displays - first were more solid
Etc... can anyone shed any light on this???? I feel completely frustrated. I can't look at Home without getting pissed. I loved watching YouTube videos, and now my blood boils when I watch. It is like being teased with HD TV, and then going back to regular TV.
I CANNOT BELIEVE NO ONE ELSE HAS EXPERIENCED THIS...On apple.com, no one answered - so I am trying here
