Not asking you to compromise.. just throwing out a potential cause If your unhappy return the Nex there are plenty of other good phones available

Could also be a defective unit... maybe try exchanging before returning? Hope it works out... no matter which route you go
I stand totally corrected. It may not be a software issue, but software CAN fix it (or work around it). I found an app called screen adjuster. I set it to various brightness levels (which overrides the auto-brightness in the video) and the blue stuff is there regardless of brightness.

However, bumping up the contrast DOES make the blue blocky stuff go away! YES! The blacks aren't quite as black when I do this, but I am totally ok with that. I'd rather that then the nasty blue aliasing that is apparent with normal contrast.

Ahh, this makes me happy. I'll tweak the contrast and post the optimal setting (lowest contrast setting that makes the blue stuff go away) as soon as I find it.
