    I noticed that the AMOLED screen on my Dinc is slightly crooked. I can see this on the upper right hand corner of the screen, where the thinckness of the black band by the clock is thinner on the right side than on the left. The reason why I even thought to look was because I was reading an e-mail with really large text and it seemed like the lines of text were sloping ever so slightly upward to the right. Is this normal or do any of you guys notice this? It's ever so slight, but noticeable to me. I would post screenshots, but I can't figure out how to do so.

    Are you rooted? if so you can screen capture using shoot me. If not I would contact VZW since that does not seem like a normal issue and ask to be sent out a replacement.

    Lol.

    What part of using the built in screen capture makes you think you can see that his screen isn't lined up in the housing? :thinking:

    I am not rooted so I'm not sure I can send a screenshot. If you could help that would be great. Thanks!

    A screen capture wouldn't work anyway (though yes, there's a way to do it without rooting). The screen could be tilted at a 45 degree angle and a screen capture would still show up strait.

    If your screen is crooked, take it to Verizon and have them replace it. We (aka - us here on the boards) do not need to see photographic proof that it's crooked. And unless it is extremely noticeable, we couldn't tell from a picture anyway.

    Thanks for the advice and help. I took it to the Verizon store and they agreed it was crooked, but they had none in stock to replace it. I will have to have them send me one online. Just wanted to see if anyone else had this problem.

    By the way, I noticed one of the display units had the problem so I guess I feel better knowing I'm not alone!

    I just got a Samsung Captivate that has the same thing. This thread is the only crooked screen result I've found Google so far. I've been trying to decide whether or not to take it back, for fear they'd think I'm crazy and give me a hassle. It's very slight, but it is there and I can't help but notice it. How'd things work out for you?

    Well, the follow-up to my story is that I got refurbs, but the screens had the pinkish hue. So right now I am living with the slightly crooked screen because my screen is not pink. I guess nothing's perfect, huh?
