    I simply set "System Brightness" to 50%. I tried 75% but it was blinding. Mess around with it, I left everything else alone... but that certainly did the trick for me.

    System is set around 70% with adjuster at 100% and -7 Contrast got rid of the splotchy blacks in video playback for me.

    Volume+ speaker set at 8 gives me my DX speaker back. Ecstatic:D

    The Pope endorsed The GNex as his daily driver and Verizon has apologized for being Verizon. Other than that...nothing much. How about you?:p

    I had vertical banding pretty bad and they exchanged it for me at a corp store. Just installed screen adjuster based on previous posts and WOW!

    edit...may go back to auto brightness just for gp

    The guy said that one person tried exchanging it with a scratched screen. He was not successful.

    I don't think they've had any other people exchanging. There were a lot of people there; I was afraid they had sold out, but he said that they'd gotten a big shipment.

    The great news is that the volume video issues are definitely software related so fixes should be rolling out from either Google or devs soon

    Just wanted to share...

    Finally got a chance to show off my Nexus to a couple of friends and in the 4+ hrs we were hanging out I barely got any time with my phone. Both are definitely going to get one, but not until the price comes down a little.

    man I am so happy with my phone now!

    I'm looking at the display with a super critical eye now, and see nothing unpleasant.

    Just got home from family christmas

    1) glad someone posted the link about how to unlock/root on a Mac. Big reason why I didn't do it day 1, I don't have a PC right now.

    2) I like the incipio cases. Had one for my charge but I found it too bulky. Love Love love my diztronic TPU case but I hope SGP comes out with their bumper style ones at some point.

    3) didn't like light flow! Even after checking a missed call or gmail, it would keep blinking. I'll stick with the built in gosms led alert for now.

    I had the same lightflow problem. Its in the settings of each one to turn off the blink after swiping down the notification bar.

    I actually didn't see the need for Light Flow - I quite like the blink as it is now!

    ok, followed the instructions in the how to root section, downloaded the superboot.zip file, extracted it to a new folder in the sdk, rebooted into fastboot and double clicked the superboot.bat file, now it seems to be hung at the google screen with the unlock symbol... anyone experience this?

    edit: nvmd, after reading one more line in the instruction area, scary alien stated that if it happened to get hung at the google screen, let it go for a few minutes(i allowed 10) then simply do a battery pull and reboot. did that and superuser is there and im now rooted :D:D:D now time to figure out CWM
