    True....but if you use same image to compare .148 vs .151, you will see a difference

    !00% correct Olta. The SFI control color. While I still see a slight color banding with 151 it is markedly improved over 148.

    thanks for the clarification!
    i guess the leaked .151 for 9500 isn't as good as the 9530 version in many ways...
    i'm hoping for a 9500 os leak soon...

    Gabriel, the big place you will notice color banding is on the Blue button higlights. The banding is very bad on those. When there is no banding present, they look 10000x better.
    Droooooiiiiiid!
