General Turning off new Nexus 7 2013

    When I turn off my new Nexus 7, the screen image collapses to a line in the middle then fades out. Since I'm pretty sure there aren't electron beams and magnets back there, I'm guessing this is just a deliberate effect someone with too much time on their hands came up with.

    Is it an effect, or is there some reason that the screen would actually do that due to the way the video hardware is built?

    Just completely idle curiosity here :).

    It's just an effect. I think it gives the tablet some style. I love little details like that!

    I believe the animation is called CRT off.

    Many people loved that feature back when they were rooting Droid X phones.

    It just looks pretty cool, that's all :)
