I had terrible color banding on widgets when I was using one the latest versions of Helix Launcher. Now I'm on Launcher Pro and things are a lot better. You can still see color banding, but only if you squint really hard.

I thought about what you said about low quality video encoding. I decided to test the screen by using a simple gradient image made in PS - a 24 bit-encoded (so 16 million colors) PNG file. I posted both the file and the image I took of the phone.

As you can see, color banding is there...and this time we can't blame it on poor video encoding.

Try this for yourselves and tell me what you see.



Aright, tested. There is color banding on mine too

I'm going to bug people at the office and see how this particular pic show up on their phones.
