Set your screen brightness to low - open MX and as soon as start a video you will see the whites get much brighter... they then go back to your setting when you stop the movie.
This seems to be a software issue not a hardware... so hopefully a dev can fix this.
Why do you think it's a software issue? I tried multiple players, including the built in one. I tried various movie formats, various compression levels and configured the players to use hardware, software and "software fast" decoding methods. They all exhibit the same blue artifacts.
The thing that sucks is now I have to pay a $35 restock fee and get a phone I don't really feel thrilled about (the rezound), but I guess I'll have to take all the bloatware and locked bootloader on the rezound and pray they get it hacked and I can run CM9/ICS in the future.
Really, really bummed to have to return this phone. I love every aspect of it, and I was ok with the slightly worse radio performance. But I guess this is just too annoying for me to live with, since I probably watch at least 1 tv show or movie a night, it's totally a deal breaker for me.
FYI, for anyone that claims they can't see it, look again when you're in a dark room. It's very difficult to discern in anything but extreme low light or darkness. I'm trying to figure out how I can show the CSRs in the store since it'll be super bright in there I'm sure.
sigh...after all this wait, I have to take it back.
