    Hey, been checking out this site for a while.. 1st post. ^_^

    My brother and I both just updated to the new firmware and noticed something.. Go and open up the Camera app (hold the red button) and tap "Switch to Video" and then tap it again so you are back in the picture mode. Look closely at the screen (point it at a white/black wall), do you see a couple light blue/green little dots in random spots? I noticed it on my phone first and then went and asked to borrow his and sure enough, his has them too. They don't seem to actually be in the pictures themselves.. just on the viewfinder screen. Let me know if you guys see them too, plz.

    Dammit, you're right! I have a few green and red ones on the bottom half...and it's only for the camera/video recorder app, because as you switch between modes, they don't show up.

    I've got one blue one on my screen. I know that it wasn't there today because I used my camera alot today.

    So with this update a problem was created and a big bug was not fixed (picasa syncing to gallery) This sucks

    I now have 3 or 4 different colored pixels..that only show when viewing a dark area through the camera.. And when I zoom in, since it is digital zoom, you can see those colored pixels getting "bigger" and moving "toward" your face more, so it is definitely the camera sensor and not the phone's screen.

    How did the update add these? 3 different pixel apps couldn't get rid of these.
    Luckily none seem to show up in final pics as far as I can tell.

    Saw one blue one, but this is nothing to even worry about. It's not an actual stuck pixel because it shows up no where else. Also these will not show up in your videos. So relax. It's probably a slight anomaly with the app itself.

    Nope they don't. I saw one white one in the camera app, took a pic and it's not there so I think it's the app itself and not the sensor or screen.

    None on mine after update. Still can't take a reliably good picture, some pictures come out amazing quality, some are terrible..even if I hold them steady in same light conditions..odd

    Just updated, did the camera/video thing, I saw what I thought was dead pixels but thankfully it was just dust on my screen, so no issues here.
